I have a NEW never used R-1850A Unit and the 1st day I plugged in the new RV in to a mis-wired 220V plug and a pop came out of the microwave and that was the last we ever herd from the unit. I removed the cover and checked the 20A Fuse, it was OK. I find no burned parts and have reached my Peter Principle and need help.The RV Company sent me a new unit and this unit has been in storage for 8 years.We just decided to take it out of the box and try and use it in the house if we can get it repaired for less than a new unit.

if your microwaved runs with 110v and you connected to a 220v there is a fuse maybe it blew and nathing happened to the micro... if not most common the electronic board burns you know what that means... a new one
first,the power socket,,try to see the power plug of your machine and the power socket you have..compare it..when its compatible no need to replace,,if not you need a socket adapter.or if not available buy a new plug (if your plug is not compatible to the socket)
secondly,you don't need a transformer if your ac supply in Australia is 120v.. if the supply in your place bigger than 120v...like 220v,230 or 250v..you have to use a step-down transformer with input of what you have in Australia and the output is 120v..and of course pay attention for the wattage of transformer to avoid over heat or burn..I suggest to buy 1500w...
I took the touch pad control unit apart, clean the connector for the ribbon wire connection between the key pad and the control unit, reseated the ribbon wire in the connection. Everything worked like new.
I had the same exact thing happen...I put in some popcorn, it wouldn't pop. The screen said "sensor error". I tried heating water, a piece of chicken...nothing would heat. I unplugged it, plugged it back in...nothing. The manual says to close the door and hit the clear/cancel button. I could have sworn I had done that, but my wife simply hit the clear button and it started working again good as new. Hope yours does the same. : ))
First (and most likely) the circuit is being overloaded. This kitchen circuit may be shared with another appliance (like the refrigerator) which is drawing enough power when both are running to trip the breaker. A Typical kitchen circuit is 20 amp with #12 wiring. So an 1800 watt microwave might draw 13 or 14 amps while a fridge compressor kicking in can surpass 7 amps before it levels off. If this is an older home the kitchen may have a 15 amp circuit with #14 wiring. If the circuit is a 20 amp you will have to split the appliances onto separate circuits. (Under code a kitchen must have a minimum of 2 separate appliance circuits). If it is a 15 amp you might be able to split them as well or may be looking up upgrading the breaker and the wiring from 15amp #14 to 20 amp #12 (but you could still have the same problem).
The other possibility is a short or loose connection. If splitting appliances onto their own circuits doesn't fix this you would probably want an electrician to come in and check for other underlying causes which could represent a fire hazard.
