Tripping circuit breaker


That unit shows that it takes 15 or 20 AMPS to run. What is the breaker amperage on the circuit where it is plugged in? Is the breaker a GFCI? You can tell by looking for the two buttons on the circuit breaker or the outlet.

During the cooking for our Christmas dinner the temperature started declining from the 350 degrees to 280 degrees. We tried the top burner to make sure the stovetop was working and the whole thing shut...


Hi Jane,
Ouch! Sorry about the Christmas dinner. I sounds as though the circuit breaker tripped.
First, find the circuit breaker panel.

1 Check to see if a breaker has tripped. These breakers are double sided because stoves are
240 volt appliances, like the water heater or the house heater. There is a bar that connects
two single breakers together. The breaker will be slightly off center to the other breakers if it is tripped.
2 If it HAS tripped DON'T TURN IT ON YET
3 Go back to the stove and plug it in.
4 Turn on a top burner(not the one that may have tripped the breaker) preferably one that you know works that you don't use very much.
5 Go back into the garage and turn on the breaker.
6 If it goes on OK go back to the kitchen. You have done the first diagnostic test.
7 Check the burner to see if it is getting hot. If it is, turn it to high and then turn on the burner that blew the breaker in the first place. See if it blows the breaker again. If it does not. Turn on all of the burners that you know work. You have now done several Diagnostic Steps that are important.
8 If one of the burners trips the breaker, you have one of the culprets. If not, GREAT.
9 Shut off all of the burners
10 DO NOT TURN ON THE OVEN
11 Open the oven door and look very carefully with a flashlight at the bottom bake heating element. Look at the the entire element. If it blew (similar to when a light bulb blows) you will
find white powder around the hole in it or it will be completely broken, or have bubbles in it. Some indication like that. If so it has failed and must be replaced.
12 There is one other rare possibility, but it would not have blown the breaker. Many ovens have clock baking timers. These timers will, shut down the oven. If someone adjusted the timer and didn't turn the knobs in the exact right position. It will ruin the party shutting down the oven at the worst time. But it won't shut the stove top burners down.
IF YOU HAVE FUSES INSTEAD OF BREAKERS
If you have fuses instead of circuit breakers, Find several of the large cylinder shaped fuses to conduct the diagnostic tests I suggest. They are usually available at home depot.
RARE PROBLEM
One last but very rare occurence with breakers is their specifications sometimes change over a long period of time. If that is the case, they will trip and lower and lower overload levels. Simply Replace.

I hope this helps,
Good Luck
Best Regards,
Mark

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM1441 BH04 tripping circuit breaker


your power transformer for the magnetron could have a shorted primary power winding,the door safety interlock switch could be mis-adjusted,this normally blows the internal unit fuse,a shorted high voltage capacitor,or diode,a bare wire inside the unit,more than the microwave on that circuit or a weak circuit breaker in the house power panel

My model is nn-s253wf, micowave stopped working, no power, checked circuit breaker, is ok ?, unplugged, then plugged back in, still no power ?


Inside the external case and usually to the right left ( from Front) in some models There is a 30 amp fuse ( This may vatry on oven output amperage) Replace that and you should be back in cook mode.
Removing the case you should remember to disconnect from the power plug.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Samsung smh7175wc - dead??


id say there is a bad connection somewhere and is arcing due to that which is causing it to trip breakers. so when you banged it and it started it made a connection and then stopped when you turned it on. open up the back abd just pull the wires anywhere connections are made and see if any are lose.

Does the rf375pxdw whirlpool range have a fuse or reset button? burners and oven does not work. there is power from the 220 plug into the range and the clock operates but not the 220. I checked circuit...


No reset buttons or fuses. Find the circuit breakers for the unit, it should be a double breaker with at least 40 Amp rating. Push it to the off position HARD (make sure not to pull the breaker out of the panel doing that). Turn it back on. Check voltage in the range power outlet. It should measure 220-250 Volts between the right and left connectors, and 110-125 Volts between the center and each side connectors. If not - problem is in the wiring or breaker. If you get those voltages and the range is still not working - problem is in the range itself. Check for shorted and loose wires.
