Oven works but after it has been cooking for a period it shuts the Electrical Safety Switch off. Restart & it just keeps happening.


Well it may be the breaker that the oven is connected to, overheating the switch and tripping it. Try replacing the breaker switch (main breaker box in the house rv) is the best thing, but you can place a small fan from say a old computer or laptop conected to a old cellphone charger, there both dc powered. Just make sure that when you fix it to the breaker switch you leave plenty of room for the switch to trip if it has to ' to avoid house fires'. I had to do this one year because the heater I plugged in was over loading my breaker and had to Jerry rig a old computer processor fan to keep it cool while heating that area of my house

Smeg microwave shorting


If it's the circuit breaker in your house or apartment that's blowing, then either you are overloading the circuit, or you have a bad breaker. Check to see what other devices might be plugged into that circuit, and move as many of them as possible to a different circuit.

I have a plmv178hc Frigidaire microwave oven. The oven completely stopped working today in the middle of cooking a 3 min. meal. Nothing is working on it the breaker didn't go off and the outlet is working....


You need a microwave fuse. Also the reason for it blowing fuses may be that it's time to replace the capacitor inside. It may be time for a new magnetron too. If you have the top open look to wires that burned in two and may be touching the frame If that is so you may not need any parts at all. Also check the thermal cutoffs (button looking safety equipment)

No power to microwave


Hello

Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

My microwave want cook


Hello

and/or circuit breakers, particularly in the case of recent power failure, and reset if necessary.


Unplug the microwave, wait 30 seconds and plug back in to the power supply to reset the microcomputer.


Open and close the microwave door firmly and press "Stop/Reset." Select a new cook time and press "Start."


Ensure a proper cooking temperature and/or time is chosen, as low cooking temperatures or short cooking times may prevent the microwave from heating food appropriately. Press "Power Level" to ensure the microwave is cooking at 100 percent power.


Contact an authorized service technician if the problem is still unresolved.

My niece cooked something that was supposed to be in for 4 min, 40 min and then the oven went completely dead, no power at all, no lights. The breaker is fine. What do you think it is?


These can have thermal fuses inside and if it was very steamy and hot it may have blown. There are also internal fuses in the micro but these are dangerous to work inside if you do not know what not to touch.

GE Spacesaver microwave trips the circuit breaker


Since power = voltage X current, 1.58kW / 120VAC = 13.166A

So this unit should be fine on a 15A breaker unless the breaker is bad, the wiring or a connection is loose somewhere between the breaker and the microwave, or the microwave's magnetron or high voltage transformer are failing and drawing extra current.

Microwaves should really be on the own separate breaker if at all possible. Plus, the more a breaker trips, the more work out it gets.

Have you measured the voltage at the outlet? If that's off, current and power will be affected. It should be about 110-125VAC.

A good power test for outlet and wiring integrity is a toaster, toaster oven, or hair dryer rated at about 1500 watts.

If it doesn't run and heat steadily, then there may be a problem with the house wiring or breaker.

If it passes this test, the problem is likely in the microwave.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
