Sounds like you overloaded the amps allowable on your circuit breaker. It can only cope with a reasonable amount on at once, and I suggest that the dryer may have pushed it over the limit.
Don't run everything at once. If the microwave works without everything else on it's fine. You may want to talk to an electrician to see if you can do anything to your circuit box to avoid the problem in future.

    I''m glad the outlet is fine, however if you're running too many appliances at once you are going to overload the system.



    All I can do is offer my advice, I doubt 1 thumb was deserved.

Fan start running by itself


many microwaves will turn the fan on or off by themselves, when there is excessive heat they kick in and attempt to clear the air (in so many words) when this happens you can not control the fan, the microwave will not respond to off commands until it has determined there is no longer a need for it.how long has it been on?is your stove on?many times smoke alarms are tied in- are they properly functioning?if all fail you may need repair -as you should be able to control this function of the device! good luck more question just ask

I have a Magic Chef microwave MCO160UB. I was cooking on the stove (microwave wasn't on) and the fan came on as it has done before. After a few minutes, it shut off and is now completely dead. I...


If the microwave is above the stove, the heat sensors in the microwave
may turn on fans to cool it even though the microwave itself is not
running. It tries to save its life. It should turn off when the stove is not
heating it.

I have a Black 4 cup Mr Coffee with luminate lighting and time display programer so that I can have coffee brewed in the morning when I get up for work at 4:30am my problem is the coffee pot has started...


I had a black and decker coffee pot do same thing and it was brand new. here is how I fixed it.
make sure the filter seated down good. If you look at the top of the coffee pot it should open up the little valve of the coffee filter holder. also mine had a little water spout above the coffee filter that swings over the filter. make sure it is over the filter. I know my coffee pot is different, but I think the problem is the opening from filter to coffee pot is not open some how so the water is flooding over the filter and going out the sides onto counter
hope this helps

I HAVE A GE MICROWAVE/BROWNER NODEL WES1384SM2SS. IT HAS STOPPED RUNNING. I CAN SET IT UP TO COOK BUT WHEN I HIT THE START BUTTON NOTHING HAPPENS.


Re: GE JES1384SF Mine quit working so I unplugged it and put a pot of boiling water in it and let the steam dissolve whatever was gumming things up. I used an electric hot plate to keep the water boiling. I let it boil for a couple of hours. I left the door 2/3 open. The microwave is working again. It is four years old and has been used every day, many times a day before it stopped working.

My coffee pot quit working. it turns on but doesnt warm up or start brewing. how do i fix it


Either the heating element is open, the thermostat is open, or the overheat fuse has popped. You can probably replace the pot for what it will cost to repair it. Good luck!
