Question about Microwave Ovens
I purchased a new Tappen .85kw microwavefrom Boaters world and installed it in my boat. I have a 3000w Xantrex miodified sign wave inverter and when I start the microwave it kicks the inverter off. Is there a simple fix for this or is my only soulition to buy a true sign wave inverter
A pure sine wave inverter will usually allow a microwave to run quieter and cooler and more efficiently all around.
So the oven has 850 watts of cooking power?
That would mean its power consumption could be as high as 1700W while cooking, but it could surge or spike higher when it first turns on due to the inductive load it offers.
I would think a 3000W inverter should handle that, but that also depends on its peak surge wattage.
As long as the microwave works properly in a normal wall outlet, I'd say maybe it's too much for this inverter and I'd check back with the dealer on this for his input.
Bottom line: Make sure the oven works well in a wall outlet, and check your inverter's peak surge rating.
