First of all, is this to power a microwave?

If so, it is always recommended that microwave be on it's own breaker with nothing else attached to that breaker. This is due to the typically high current draw (12+ amps) of the oven.

The most important items which should be on a ground fault interrupter are those which may fall into water or get wet, but it's of course never a bad idea to use a GFI.

If this doesn't answer your question, please rephrase it with some more details.

I have a 2000 23ft comfort travel trailer, it is pluged into electrical, all lights work, but I do not get any power from outlet plugs. I checked breakers & fuses, no outlets work.


On my trailer the gfci is a seperate button in the fuse panel that shuts down the 120v outlets, all the lights run off the 12v so they continue to work, does your microwave and ac work?

Whirlpool microwave gh7208xrb-3 fuse is good but the unit has no powernothing lights up at all it like it is dead.


Control board might be dead. Cost is quite high could run up to $200 or more. Many times I recommend just to replace it. Here's the dumb question, is power present at receptacle?, if over range microwave, in cabinet above microwave? Check for gfci receptacle tripped. Sometimes fuses appear good, always be sure to test with a meter.

I was just using the microwave and it died on me. No power to the unit that I can tell.


Check the circuit breaker. If it's pugged into GFCI type outlet or an outlet that's run from one, make sure the breaker didn't trip there.

Remove unit and check trip/reset switch on unit. Double check GFCI receptacle with plug tester with GFCI test button.

I went to use my mirowave & it is completely gone. I pushed every button that I could & nothing happens. What should I do


first check the breaker in the electrical panel. your microwave should be on a circuit with nothing else. Depending on when the house was constructed. If the breaker is tripped turn it off and back on. If the microwave is plugged into a gfic outlet check to see if the receptacle needs reset. There will be a reset button on the receptacle. Their may be a orange light on the receptacle.

The microwave stopped working


Ck your gfci breaker in your wash room or bath room. If this dosn't fix it it may be an internal fuse. If this is the case you will need to find what caused breaker to blow or it will happen again.

You might do better to replace the microwave. My plate broke and would cost $27 to replace. I bought a new microwave for $40.
