No power to microwave


Hello

Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

I have bought a whirlpool microwave wmh1163xvs. where does the power cord exit the oven and where should the plug in be located?


Typically the power cord on above the stove microwaves exit from the top of the oven. That way the oven can be mounted to the wall and the power cord can be routed up to an outlet in the cabinet above the microwave.

Microwave trips circuit breaker when plugged in repeats when breaker is reset . There is no problem with house electric.


The circuit is probably a 20Amp circuit (see the number stamped on the circuit breaker switch). Most likely, it is the same circuit as the refrigerator, crock pot, window A/C unit, etc....

Also, if you are using an extension cord or a power strip or a surge protector. Those may not have a high enough power rating.

One other possibility (not likely) is that the circuit breaker is a 15Amp and the microwave is 1500 watts.

What else is cut off when the circuit breaker is tripped?

Solution is to use a different outlet for the microwave, or turn off any other applicance in the same circuit (except the refrigerator, of course).

Hope this helps!

Kenmore Microwave Oven Sudden Power Reduction


I would be sure to check the microwave's outlet under a load.

One good way is to use a toaster or hair dryer for about a minute to see if they run at full power and run without their heating elements dimming.

If the power at the outlet is steady, I would suggest a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If it still fails to heat properly, I would say you have a failing magnetron, and it would just be a coincidence that the failure began after the new wiring was installed.

If you need to order the magnetron, Sears sells it for $73.13, but you can get it for $41.84 here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Power cord


If you are referring to the main power cord then you should be able to purchase one at Home Depot/Lowes of most local hardware stores... make sure you get the current rating off the tag on the appliance.. 15Amp or less can use a cord size of 14 gauge.. you should use a 12 gauge for any appliance requiring up to 20Amps ( in your case ..1100 watts minus losses within the system should allow you to use 14 gauge power cord.)

GE Microwave - Power Cord Appears to be Dead


Most microwave ovens are equipped with an internal fuse. This is typically located where the power cord enters the cabinet. The cabinet will have to be opened to verify the fuse.

The magnetron is not directly attached to the power source, it has to be stepped up in voltage significantly, either through a transformer or inverter.

It is usually best to have professional tech check the fuse for operation. Most shops will do this for a small fee if you drop the unit off yourself.
