Re: Need to operate the microwave at 230 volts

You will need a step-down transformer of the appropriate power (wattage) and the proper adapter plug for the country you'll be in. You need to look on the back of the microwave and see how many watts it CONSUMES, not how many watts of cooking power it produces. Usually the power consumption requirement should be in the ballpark of twice the power output. For a 700W (cooking power) oven, I would suspect it has about a 1400W power consumption requirement, so your step-down transformer must be rated at least 1500W. That may be cutting it close, so for lower heat and longer transformer life, I would choose a 2000 watt model. You need to be sure it comes with an adapter plug that's made for receptacles in the country you'll go to. One site I found has them for about $60. but I would read up on the subject to see if you need one of an EVEN HIGHER rating since microwave ovens do surge when they start cooking. You may need to use one rated at 3000W or more. More info:

My country use the 220 volts system do have to use a step down transformer of plug it in has been a year i have not used the appliance having no information on wattage

If your microwave is wired for 220 volts AC and your country standard house current is 220, and the plug is of the proper configuration, plug it in.

Standard microwave size is around 1100 watts at 110 volts Normally, two times the voltage is 1/2 the wattage. Ohms law, Voltares Law and Watts Law apply.

If your microwave is 1100 watts at 110 volts --- yes you will need a step- down transformer of some type.

How to convert electricity from 110 to 220 volts for my SHARPE Microwave oven

Ah, the problem of the ages. There are 2 solutions. One is a transformer of the proper size, and the second is to purchase a heavy duty battery charger (that runs on 220 volts). Connect the red and black (+ and -) wires to a 12v to 110v voltage inverter, similar to what you would plug into a 12v auto 'cigarette lighter' socket to produce 110v current from a car battery. The charger turns the 220 vac to 12 vdc, and the inverter turns the 12 vdc into 110 vac. This works, as it is what I did when I moved from the US to England.

I need to install this range in a new kitchen and need to know the electical specs of the supply power

I don't see what range you're referencing. I see a title of microwave ovens. But, in any event, here's circuit requirement for each.

If it's a cooktop range: 220 volt 30 amp dedicated circuit

If it's a microwave: 110 volt 15 amp dedicated circuit

Where can I find a operating manual for the KOG-574R microwave oven

Not knowing what country you're in, I'd say the best bet is to contact the dealer from whom you purchased it to see if they have contact information for Daewoo.

There's usually an input line fuse on a small circuit board (part of an input line filter circuit) in most microwave ovens. This is usually a 20 amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at most major hardware stores (you would need to look at the fuse to verify the rating). You would need to remove the exterior cover to access the fuse. Its usually located near where the power cord enters the unit. Make sure you unplug the unit prior to attempting any repairs to the interior circuits. Microwave ovens are particularly dangerous as the the voltage potentials in the high voltage network are in the 3000-4000 volt range. In addition, most manufacturers provide a schematic drawing with troubleshooting advice behind the operator console, or inside the interior cabinet wall. I hope this helps you.

Paint inside microwave oven, Can it be repainted ?

Yes. You need to clean it, sand it shiny, then clean it squeky again.

Then you can get high temperature appliance paint in spray on brush-on form from local appliance part store or places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.

I would suggest you let it dry overnight with the door open before using the oven.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
