Hello,

the problem is over loading. The Oven and Hob plus other electric appliances/equipment are all overloading the circuit breaker. The circuit breaker is too small for these appliances or the circuit breaker cannot carry them all, that's why its blowing.

You need to change the circuit breaker to a higher one, that is, to the one with a higher capacity that can carry the oven and hob.

I would further advice that you call an electrician to help you check all the appliances that is loading the circuit breaker and recommend a breaker that can carry your electric appliances. This will determine the capacity of breaker that you need to buy.

Take care.

Blowing breaker


In general house hold circuit breaker of the house is 15 Amps or 20 Amps.

Either you have defected (weak) circuit breaker and wiring or bad Microwave oven.

The 99.99 % house hold Microwave ovens pull less than 15 Amps. They may have internal ceramic 15A fuse or 15 Amp internal circuit breaker.

To isolate your problem:

1. Plug your Microwave oven to different areas (different electrical circuit) if the different circuit breaker still trips... your Microwave oven has a short - Most of them has a small ceramic fuse 15 amps fuse.-also check some inter lock switches at door .

2. If the Microwave oven works Ok then you may have:

2a. You may overload the existing electrical circuit, try to unplug some other appliances

2b. You may have bad electrical outlet receptacle (Replace it with the same type , - may need helps from licensed electrician)

2c. Weak or defect house hold circuit breaker. (Replace it with the same type , brand - may need helps from licensed electrician)

The microwave only draws a lot of current when cooking and on, you may have either a bad breaker or another item on that same circuit causing this, Fridge?

I don't know if it is the microwave that blowing the circuit, but that is what my brother said. It blows the circuit sometimes when they use it. Model# MS-104yc 1.5KW or maybe the combination of the air...


Are you referring to tripping the breaker? The microwave runs on 110 volts, and if you are referring to a central HVAC unit, it runs on 220. No way the one could blow the other, unless you are referring to a window unit. If it is tripping the breaker, you could start by replacing the breaker (can buy at Home Depot or Lowes), and if it still continues to trip the breaker, then it is more than likely the capacitor.

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM1441 BH04 tripping circuit breaker


your power transformer for the magnetron could have a shorted primary power winding,the door safety interlock switch could be mis-adjusted,this normally blows the internal unit fuse,a shorted high voltage capacitor,or diode,a bare wire inside the unit,more than the microwave on that circuit or a weak circuit breaker in the house power panel

How can I get the power to come on my Sharp microwave?


The problem may be an electrical one. Microwave ovens require a lot of power. Often, they use most of the power available to the circuit they are plugged in to. If there is not enough power in the circuit to feed the microwave and whatever else is plugged into that same circuit the fuse will blow or the circuit breaker will kick off.

Go to your electcical box, and check the breakers or the fuses. If one of the breakers has kicked, reset it by pushing it all the way off and then back on. If the fuse is blown, unscrew it and screw in a new one of the same amperage.

good luck. please rate my answer. thanks
