Westpoint dishwasher trips the electricity


is this a new machine that is replacing and old one? because if it is tripping your breakers it means that the machine is asking for more amperage than the breaker is capable to sustain. make sure that you check the amperage rating is on the machine and you will be able to use the appropriate breaker that is needed for it. another thing that could also be happening is, if that cirquit is being shared with something else in your kitchen, these machines are for the most part need to be dedicated cirquits.

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"

We have a GE Profile microwave and every time we open the door it trips the breaker. We turn the breaker back on and use the microwave and as soon as the food is done cooking and we open the door - bam,...


For a breaker to trip, you have to have an over voltage condition that is usually referred to as a short. Since your unit works in the cook cycle and only trips the circuit breaker when you open the door the short has to be in the door latch switch or reset circuit. So it wouldn't be that hard to repair, but since it is 7 years old and not the most energy efficient unit, if you aren't able do the repair yourself, then I would replace it!

You can get an idea of how hard the repair would be by going to the searspartsdirect.com web site and putting in the model # off the ID TAG. Then look for the door latch assembly and that will give you an idea of the cost of the parts and get an idea of how hard it is to replace.

Our GE dishwasher has been working fine for years. Now it is tripping the braker? all wiring is good right to the dishwasher. We did smell burnt wires but it went away.?????


Your dishwasher may be damaged beyond repair. When I installed the dishwasher in my home I found that there is a surprising number of wires bundled under the dishwasher. If you are skilled in that field you can pull the dishwasher out and try to repair the damaged wiring under the machine. However once you've smelled burned wiring it means that there are potentially significant problems in there. You aren't smelling the burnt wires anymore because the damage is so great it's just tripping the breaker. If you continue to try and force the machine to work in this situation you may end up with a fire and further damage.

Please be careful.

all kitchen appliances should be on ground fualt outlets & breakers,If an appliance is on a g.f. outlet it should only blow that particular outlet so all you have to do is push the reset button.Outlets and lights should be on different breakers,so that if the outlet breaker blows you will still have lights

Dishwasher will start washing and then trip the power


this is in micrfowave ovens Wrong Category...

However if the circuit contsantly trips when using the dishwasher, take a look to see what other appliances are also being used at that time.

Electric jugs/kettles will overload the circuit, so will TV;s etc. Have an electrician divide the power plugs in that circuit to a new circuit breaker and reduce some of the load. Est cost is 80-$100

Our GE JVM153SH microwave continues to blow the elecctric panel evety 4-6 months. why ?


If the microwave is not on a dedicated circuit, it's just the additional load the microwave is adding to the circuit which is causing the breaker to trip.
