Question about Microwave Ovens
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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:
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 .
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)
