My Magic Chef microwave tripped a breaker,I found a melted door switch and replaced it, the other three test ok.With the door closed everything works like new. When the door is opened the breaker blow


The only thing I can think of is check to make sure all switches are aligned correctly otherwise you will keep tripping the breaker, I'am certain that one of your switches are not properly in position.

GE microwave (Model JE2160SF03) trips breaker when door opened


Remove the control panel, take pictures of the door switch wiring while they are still connected to the door switches, then remove the door switch assembly. Have someone at the appliance store check each switch and repair the ones that are defective.

I purchased a switch for $7, reinstalled the door switch assembly and the microwave is working fine now.

No power to outlets in kitchen


You need to start with your breaker panel, looking for any tripped breakers. Check all the breakers in the panel. They should be numbered and the numbers will match a ledger on the door. Find the kitchen outlets and move the breaker switch to the off position and then back to on. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

My es300 electric range is tripping the breaker switch when I have more than one top element on and the oven. A few months ago the breaker switch started to trip when we had more than two elements on top...


Hello Happydude,

I understand that you are having a problem with your electric range. You state that as you turn more elements on the stovee on (ie. the burners and oven) the breaker will trip. Have you had any service done to the range before the problem started occuring?

This sounds like you have a problem with your breaker. As a breaker is tripped it will get weak as many times as your breaker has tripped I would replace it. You also need to verify that you are using atleast a 50 amp breaker. You will need to purchase the same type of breaker as you have (ie. Cuttler Hammer, GE, Square D, etc.). You will need a two pole 50 amp breaker. Follow the below dirrections to change the breaker.

1. Turn off the main breaker.
2. Verify that all electicity is off by checking electric in the house of building (everything should be off, not working)
3. Remove cover panel screws
4.. Lossen the screws on the two wires that are attached to the breaker
5. Remove the wires
6. Remove the breaker
7. Install the new breaker
8. Insert one wire under each screw
9. Reinstall cover panel
10. Turn main breaker on
11. Turn on oven breaker

Once the oven breaker is on check to see if all elements and oven will work at the same time. If the breaker trips. We will have to walk thru some more trouble shooting steps. However, I do believe that this will solve your problem.

Thank you for chossing FixYa.com please post any other questions that you may have about you appliances

I'm trying to connect a GSW-SK door switch to an led rope light. The circuit breaker trips every time I plug the power cord into the outlet. Any ideas?


The circuit breaker trips because you have some sort of short circuit. Use a Meter set to OHMS, and try to find the "Short". Check the wiring in the Plug also.

The circuit breaker trips when I open the refrigirator even when the ref switch is off


There must be a short in the internal lighting circuit which have one functional component, the switch. It is usually a white push-button inside the refrigerator near the door. The door pushes the switch when it is closed turning the light off. When the door is opened, the button pops back out to turn on the light. In your case, when you open the door you are switching on the light but the circuit breaker trips off. It means the short circuit is in the light wiring and nothing else. Retrace the wiring and you'll surely find it there. Rewire and have a good day.

Oven light will not go out, no matter what you do. We have turned the breaker off, tried the cancel, light buttons. All we get is a double beep when the light button is pressed.


If you turned the breaker off (at the service entry?), there is no way the light could work. You have the wrong breaker. Anyway, there must be an "oven light" switch. If this doesn't work, the switch must be replaced. Or, just remove the light bulb.

Trips breaker when door opens


Sounds like the switch or wiring around the switch is shorting out. Most light switches pop out with a screw driver.Some older units might have a small heater in the door around the seal but usually not See if there is any wiring going through the hinge pin. If so you can safely cut and tape this off. The door might sweat a little but this is a solution. Please deal with this as it could be a shock hazard. You might not notice if you touch and are wearing dry shoes, but a barefoot child could be killed.

OVEN DOOR LIGHT SWITCH


These instructions apply to my GE Profile JBP90 but other brands and models are similar.

1. DISCONNECT THE UNIT FROM ITS ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCE!
CONFIRM POWER IS DISCONNECTED BY OBSERVING DISPLAY GOING DARK
In your case this may mean turning off the 220V double circuit breaker or unplugging the unit cord from its power outlet.
2. Open the oven door
3. Remove the two screws under the front edge of the stove cooktop on the far left and right
4. Gently raise the cooktop 4 or 5 inches and prop it open with a small cardboard box
5. Find the door switch wire and gently pull the switch connector off
6. Remove the switch by squeezing the two metal spring tabs toward the switch and pushing the switch out toward the front
7. Inspect the switch. If its like mine, it may look a little melted and smell burnt.
8. Find a new switch online or at your nearest parts distributer

9. Installation is the reverse of above steps.

Good Luck!
