Can anybody tell me how storm power surges can wreck appliances?
During the recent October snowstorm, we lost power for nine days. For four days after that we had constant power surges to the house and none of our appliances worked. The surges were fixed, but the electric range and microwave still don't work at all. Repairman says they are not repairable and need to be replaced. What do power surges do to cause this?
