Question about Microwave Ovens
I installed this microwave 2 days ago. It is an over the range model Tappan TMV151FS. I was warming a frozen entree for 12 minutes and 5-6 minutes in to the cycle the unit totally powered down. I checked the outlet and there was still electric available. After about 20-25 minutes the unit came back on (not running but the display lit up). So I set the cooking timer for 6 minutes and after 3:32 minutes it powered down again. After 27 minutes it powered up again.
The kicker is that this is the 2nd one I have had do the same thing. The last one started doing this after 6 days.
Is there a problem in how I have installed the unit or some install instruction missing in the install manual? It heats fine when it runs but this problem is not acceptable. Any ideas?
Check the voltage on the outlet,make sure it is 115v -- 122volts max, any less will cause it shut off, make sure the polarity off the outlet is correct and it is grounded,check all of your wiring connections, if all this is ok replace unit with a different unit or different supplier of unit
