Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven
Once in awhile, when the door is opened rapidly, the circuit breaker trips for the microwave. It appears to happen only when the door is suddenly opened and never when opened slowly. I have taken it apart and cleaned it and checked the door switches. I am not sure how and why the door switches would be able to trip on the circuit breaker yet the fuse in the microwave never blows? I would like to repair this as I believe this could potentially cause more other serious problems.
Any help would be appreciated.
Check what other appliances are on your circuit. What goes off when the breaker is tripped. You may need to relocate the microwave to a different circuit. Try to stay away from the refrigerator or AC circuits.
