Question about Emerson MW8107WA Microwave Oven
I just recently accuired a 8107 from a friend, and it has a unique problem as well. I can plug it in and nothing happens. I can push buttons and start the microwave and nothing happens. However, whenever the door is opened, whether right after plugging in or not, the breaker trips. I have tried this on a few different circuits in the house, which are all 20A, and this still happens. It can't be that the stupid little appliance bulb in there is drawing so much juice that it trips, it's just not possible. What's going on?

Make sure it is plugged into a 20 amp circuit. If it is in a kitchen it should be a 20amp breaker if it trips a 20 amp breaker it needs to be replaced. If it is a new house and you plug it in in the kitchen and it trips a 15 amp breaker then the house does not meet code. ref Article 210.52(B)(1) NEC
