SOURCE: JMC7000ADW Blows circuit breaker

I've had this problem twice with our microwave. The hint to where the problem lies is that the breaker blows when you open the door at times. Inside the microwave are three microswitches; primary and secondary interlock micro switches and an Interlock Monitor switch. The switches are supposed to shut down the microwave if it is running and the door is opened. But, I've found the upper primary switch can stick internal at times and when the door is opened the stuck switch will, because of the way it is wired as a safety switch, cause either the fuse or possibly the main circuit breaker for the oven to pop. The reason the stuck switch blows the breaker or fuse is when the door is opened the interlock switch will cause the neutral wire from the AC power to be applied to the Upper Primary Interlock switch which normally should be open when the door is opened, but if the switch is intermittent or the contacts weld themselves shut the neutral line is connected direct to the "hot" side of the power line through the fuse and thermostat. The first time my microwave failed the switch had melted the contacts together inside the switch and the second time the switch became intermittent and would blow the breaker to the over ever so often. I suspected the switch the second time this happened and utilizing an ohm meter I checked the switch several times by opening and closing the door and once in a while it would remain closed instead of opening when the door was opened. Of course while trouble shooting the power cord to the microwave must be disconnected and use all safety precautions when working around the high voltage areas inside the microwave. I wrote Jenn-Air about the bad switch and the way it is wired into the circuit, but never received any acknowledgement. I suspect these microswitches are under rated for the amount of current that passes through the switch, thus they overheat and eventually arc the contacts together. I hope this helps explain the intermittent problem and could explain many of the intermittent blown fuse problems I see in these internet help sessions

SOURCE: FRIDGE IS BLOWING THE CIRCUIT BREAKER

Most likely you have a bad or weak circuit breaker. Consult an electrician for breaker change out. Make sure that it isn't hooked up with a GFI plug. They will not work on a GFI.

Plug is having loose contact. may be wire are loose inside socket. Tighten them. The contact should be firm not sparky loose.

Fuse blows as soon as you incert it into yhe ignition circuit on my C300H countax


You have a short somewhere and you need to trace the wiring. For your diagnosis, use "circuit breaker" fuse which will auto-trip/reset if there is a short or high amp draw. I even replaced some of my fuse with circuit breaker.

Compressor keeps turning on and off, I can hear it and it dims the lights showing an increase in power draw, it will blow the main circuit breaker to the house. Therefore it does not run enough to remove...


If when it's running it dims the lights in the room or entire house, The circuit breaker for the receptacle it's plugged into, is not a high enough amperage to carry the dehumidifier and whatever other electrical appliances that are on the same circuit. OR if your house is hold enough (1970's era), it may have aluminum wiring and its overheating .

If it's blowing the Main Circuit Breaker for the entire house and not just the circuit breaker for the receptacle it's plugged into, Stop using the dehumidifier immediately!!! Have an certified electrician check your home's circuit breaker panel and wiring. This could be a dangerous situation.

We had a power surge now when i plug my fridge in it blows my circuit breaker


The power surge might have damaged the wiring to the refrigerator. You can check this one with a megar. That is only if the circuit breaker blows off, ONLY when the unit is turned on. Else, the problem may be that current is flowing through the neutral. You can check it with a tester and if so, report it to the electricity board. Else, as a temporary measure, you can connect your unit, bypassing the circuit breaker. But in that case the circuit breaker will never blow off regarding any complaints to the unit and may result in a slight power wastage.

Fridge keeps blowing the breaker


Depending on what is causing the breaker to blow will be important to know. Refrigerators do draw a good bit of power on a 20 amp circuit especially when the refrigerator goes into defrost. Refrigerators are made to run on a 20 amp circuit without other machines or appliances using the same power circuit. Circuit breakers weaken over time too especially if they have more than they are. rated for plugged into the same circuit. And your circuit may be doing its job by detecting an excessive draw of power when the refrigerator is plugged in. You must have someone that knows electricity to inspect your refrigerator for shorting and the circuit it is plugged to for correct wiring for every ones safety. Thanks, Sea Breeze

When compresser comes on blows electric breaker


the outlet that you have the dehudifier plugged into has too many items plugged in on the same circuit and when the compressors kicks in it draws more amperage than the breaker load can hold thus popping the breaker either remove some electrical apliances from that circuit load or plug in elsewhere
