Question about Microwave Ovens
My kenmore microhood blows my house fuse. I plugged it in to a different outlet and it blew it to.
Normally it should blow the units internal fuse first if its an internal issue, first check the line cord thoroughly for any bare wires at the case , then remove outer case asn see if cord is bare anywhere inside, then inspect unit fuse, take a multimeter and take a resistance check in an upper range og the meter of the disconnected h.v. diode, then disconnect h.v. capacitor(DISCHARGE) across terminals before touching and check this part, then lastly it could be the magnetron tube, or the hi voltage transformer, therse are VERY expensive items,you may vie to replace microwave then

Either you have defected (weak) circuit breaker and wiring or bad Microwave oven.
The 99.99 % house hold Microwave ovens pull less than 15 Amps. They may have internal ceramic 15A fuse or 15 Amp internal circuit breaker.
To isolate your problem:
Plug your Microwave oven to different areas (different electrical circuit) if the different circuit breaker still trips... your Microwave oven has a short - Most of them has a small ceramic fuse 15 amps fuse.-also check some inter lock switches at door .
If the Microwave oven works Ok then you may have:
2a. You may overload the existing electrical circuit, try to unplug some other appliances
2b. You may have bad electrical outlet receptacle (Replace it with the same type , - may need helps from licensed electrician)
2c. Weak or defect house hold circuit breaker. (Replace it with the same type , brand - may need helps from licensed electrician)
