Question about Amana MVH210W Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave works but doesn't heat food.

We installed our microwave and discovered that when our 16 light bulbs in our living room were on and we ran the microwave, it would cause the braker to trip. Recently, we had an appliance repair man over to check out other appliances, and after checking it out, he indicated nothing was wrong witht the microwave, we just needed more juice. Next, we had an electrician to come in and put the microwave on a seperate box, and when we went to do a test run, it still doesn't heat food. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Check if it heats through a different outlet by its self if not element is shot but if it works you need a better electrician unfortunately because you might have a new fire hazard with incorrect wiring but thats really only way to find out
