They just stopped working completey , one was burnt out , one of them keeps tripping the consumer units , the warranty may not be valid as we had to change the plugs from the EU plug to the uk plugs i.e. cutting the cable, voids the warranty ?
so not sure why they keep breaking down , but just wanted to be sure that microwaves that are imported are not causing the problem first and what i can do to try and asses the fault.

Hi, Thank you for that information.

I did some research and found that they had a bad batch of microwave ovens go out.

I would contact Candy for a replacement or a refund on these. They are aware of the problem so I doubt it has anything to do with how you hooked them up. not your fault ;-)

Its best to use the contact info in the user manuals and on the warranty card as well for this for fastest service.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.

ok how do we verify that a bad batch went out ??

Hi, I was able to contact the manufacturer to find out what might have been wrong and I passed that on to you as they told me this lol.

They will honor the warranty and either fix or replace tall of them.
