What constitutes 'furnished' should be specified in the lease. If the microwave is not explicit in the lease then you'll need to replace it. But you can take it with you when you leave.

If the agreement is silent on this then the LL has to repair or replace a faulty appliance that was in place when you moved in. Write a letter asking politely for it to be repaired or replaced on the basis that it is part of the house equipment and get all to sign. Keep a copy. If he drags his feet write again offering to buy one and deduct the cost from your rents. All to sign again. That may well do the trick.

The landlord is only responsible to repair anything 1) Specified in section 11 of the 1985 Landlord & Tenant Act; or 2) Specified as his responsibility in the tenancy agreement So, your microwave is your responsibility - unless your landlord has done something himself to damage it. Think of it this way - if YOU hadn't used it, it wouldn't have broken! If you choose to replace it, you DO NOT have to replace it with a new model (google: landlord betterment), just one of a similar age with the same features. EDIT: FidoMC disagrees with me, but the link provided makes no mention of repairs!

What is described in your lease as the furnishings? If a microwave is not explicitly mentioned as something your landlord provides, it is not a furnishing in the apartment and would be your responsibility to replace, should you choose to replace it.

Nope a micro wave is a luxury and NOT a necessity. Such as a washer, dryer and dishwasher. Landlord only must supply a Stove

If it only cost about £40, is it really worth having an argument about and souring relations with your landlord...?

If anything supplied by a landlord breaks down it is his or her obligation to have it repaired. So your answer is yes he must make good or replace.
