Microwave Insurance

While we spend more time at home in these unusual times, our home appliances become more and more important to our general day to day life and you may have found something like your microwave beginning to play a larger role in your households running. But what if your microwave breaks down? Could you cope without it for a lengthy period of time or would replacing it be a stretch too far for your budget?

One way to protect yourself should the worst happen is to buy one of our comprehensive and cost-effective microwave insurance policies. We here at Prominence Support understand how stressful an appliance breakdown can be, that’s why our insurance policies are there for you when you need them the most.


What exactly is microwave insurance and why is it important for your home?

If your microwave breaks down it can be an incredibly trying time. Being unable to keep your children fed can become irritating quickly and seriously disrupt your household. Unfortunately, most problems with microwaves begin after the manufacturer’s guarantee period has ended, leaving you with a large bill for repairs, labour, or even a replacement machine.

But what if you could keep your microwave covered for one low-cost monthly fee that would ensure any break down is fixed quickly with little fuss?

Here at Prominence Support, we understand how stressful a faulty appliance can be and we have a qualified network of engineers across the UK who will, in most cases, be out to you within 24 hours to fix any issues. All our engineers are fully trained and can quickly diagnose problems before providing an effective repair or, if necessary, a replacement product.

What does a Prominence Support Microwave Insurance policy not cover you for?

We try to be as clear and transparent as we can in our terms and conditions, but as with all insurance policies there are some exclusions. Here are a few areas our policy does not cover:

  • Cosmetic damage to the microwave, including damage to dials, buttons, outer-casings, and any paintwork.
  • Microwaves used for business purposes.
  • Damage or breakdowns caused by pest infestation.
  • Deliberate damage
  • Faults present prior to the policy start date.

Here is a table of what is and isn’t covered in one of our policies for quick reference:

Isn’t my microwave already covered if I have household insurance?

It’s unlikely. Home insurance is there to cover you for structural damage to the property or loss of household possessions due to fire, theft, or water damage. Microwave breakdowns are rarely covered. Check your terms and conditions.
