My microwave i bought from Harvey Norman has become faulty during the warranty period.

I would like to know if i'm well within my rights to ask for a refund?

( sometime it doesnt turn on, other times some buttons dont work)

You should take it back to the store where you bought it together with a copy of the receipt. Nothing to stop you asking for a refund, but it's up to them whether they exchange for a working model, repair it or give you the refund. Australian consumer law applies, take a look Repair, replace or refund.
