Trip Circuit Breaker


The circuit breakers may both be functioning properly. What might be happening is that both circuits have other current drawing appliances on them. The circuit breakers react to the sum of all of the currents drawn by all of the devices on that circuit. So, if you have a 15 amp microwave and an 8 amp refrigerator on the same circuit, you would overload a 20 amp circuit by 3 amps.

Lg microwave oven trips circuit breaker


The magnetron probably has a partial short pulling more current than normal as it runs, the other two items that give trouble is the high voltage diode, "sometimes cracks" to the high voltage capacitor, "usually shorts"

Touch screen displays is lit up , but will not respond by touching any of the promts. I have unpluged the unit hopeing to reset no change. unit was working fine the day before.


HELLO.

The solution is to troubleshoot the microwave as explained below.

1 Check the power supply. Make sure the microwave is firmly plugged into a working electrical outlet and that your wall outlet is active if your home uses outlets controlled by a wall switch. Check your home's fuses or circuit breakers to ensure they have not been tripped. Without power the microwave will not respond to any input.

2 Make sure the parental lock is inactive. Some ovens, like the one shown in the image above, feature a keypad lock to prevent children playing with the controls. Most keypad locks can be cancelled by holding down a button or combination of buttons for a few seconds.

3 Make sure the door is firmly closed. Some microwave ovens will not allow any control panel input if the door is open.

4 Remove the microwave from the power, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. This will reset the microwave oven if there is a temporary problem with the software.

5 Press the "Stop/Cancel" button several times to cancel the current operation and return the microwave to standby mode. Re-enter your cooking instructions using the keypad as usual.

please let me know the outcome..

thanks.

Hi, in my home every electical applience works well. But when i switch on microwave oven the power to house will go off. MCB trips i think oven drawing more current/power. what might be the problem...


Hi,

There is a dead short in side the microwave... this is causing the breaker to trip...however you should also replace the breaker to the microwave, as that should trip before the MCB...unless both are tripping at the same time...


Here is a tip that will help you to figure out what is wrong with your Microwave Oven....

This oven is fitted to my new (to me) rv. the convection bit is fine, but the microwave trips the 15A breaker. have changed the breaker, still trips.


Yes the breaker is to stop firs etc, you should NEVER EVER simply re-set a breaker without finding out WHY it tripped. I suspect your oven has developed a Short Circuit fault. Please DO NOT touch it while plugged in you risk electric shock. Please remove from power and get it looked at by a qualified person. Please ask for "Quote" before proceeding with any work. a lot of the time replacement is cheaper than repair.

My microwave oven keeps tripping the circuit breaker.i replaced the outlet that it plugs into but it still trips it. is there an internal fuse in the oven that may be bad?


If a fuse inside had blown, that would definitely reduce the current flow rather than trip the breaker.
I have replaced several breakers over the years; they no longer last forever.
Try your Amana on a different circuit, not in the kitchen; if that other circuit likes the oven, the breaker is bad. If the alternate circuit breaker also trips, then you have not a blown fuse in the Amana but rather a shorted component inside and repairing the oven will likely cost about the same as replacing it.

No power


A microwave should be plugged into an outlet that is on a separate circuit. Make sure you didn't trip a breaker that serves this purpose. If all is well, then take your oven to an authorized servicer in your area. DO NOT attempt to let anyone but an authorized servicer to even touch it. Shock hazard with severe injury could occur.

GE Spacesaver microwave trips the circuit breaker


Since power = voltage X current, 1.58kW / 120VAC = 13.166A

So this unit should be fine on a 15A breaker unless the breaker is bad, the wiring or a connection is loose somewhere between the breaker and the microwave, or the microwave's magnetron or high voltage transformer are failing and drawing extra current.

Microwaves should really be on the own separate breaker if at all possible. Plus, the more a breaker trips, the more work out it gets.

Have you measured the voltage at the outlet? If that's off, current and power will be affected. It should be about 110-125VAC.

A good power test for outlet and wiring integrity is a toaster, toaster oven, or hair dryer rated at about 1500 watts.

If it doesn't run and heat steadily, then there may be a problem with the house wiring or breaker.

If it passes this test, the problem is likely in the microwave.

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