I also bombed out on locating a downloadable manual but the hardcopy is available on eBay here:

The efficiency of microwave oven is ~ 65% so if you will check the back of your unit for the AC line (input power) consumed, you can easily calculate the usable 'cooking' power available.

i.e. If the label states: 115 VAC 10 Amp(eres), this would amount to 10 X 115 = 1150 X .65 = ~ 740 watts delivered to the food.

The magnetrons do age (if not fail first) and their emissions fall with progressive use so a 10 year-old oven won't still give you that ~65% but substantially less.

I have a Sanyo Microwave EM-2500T, serial number 508650448 and I need to know the maximum wattage of it please. It was given to us second hand 23 years ago and is still going strong!


Hi Alison!

Wow. That microwave certainly doesn't owe you anything. Nice work on 23 years.
While not able to come up with the exact specifications or owner's manual, I would guess that 850 to 1000 watts would be pretty close to the number for your unit, especially if it's running on a 15A breaker.

Sorry I couldn't have been of more help.

Wattage on JCPenney 863-5973-60


Multiply the Voltage times the current to get wattage. The information plate on the unit will give you both numbers. In either case the MAX it would use would on a 15amp 120 Volt circuit would be 1800 watts. If its on a 20 amps circuit it would be 2400 watts. Unless its on a 220V circuit it would be one or the other. If its installed properly it should be on its own circuit breaker, see what size of circuit breaker its on and use the appropriate value. it could be less but it will not be more than these values.

The main fuse in the microwave oven has blown, sometimes you can change it without a problem, but normally I find the door switch becomes defective causing the fuse to open. If you decide to service it yourself be very careful of dangerous high voltages that are present.

My Dacor DCM24 microwave/convection oven is brand new and won't pop popcorn--old or new, large or small bag, with twice as much time as is on the bag, power on high. Doesn't work with the popcorn button...


Are you cooking it this way, as shown in the owner's manual?

"Use an overturned 9 or 10 inch oven proof glass pie plate on top of the
turntable when popping bagged microwave popcorn.
"

You can also use a paper plate in a pinch, but as always, never leave a microwave unattended while it's cooking, since some paper products can have impurities which will allow overheating and possibly fire.

This is a convection oven, so it has a metal turntable tray.

Microwaves cannot penetrate the metal from below like it would on a standard microwave's glass tray, allowing for even heating.

If you've lost your owner's manual, you can get it here.
