Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have noticed that when I have my dishwasher on, and kettle and water filter that the safety switch trips out, shutting down most of my kitchen. The dishwasher has it's own outlet and the kettle and Brita Filter are on the same outlet. The safety switch seems to only shut down part of the house - i thought the trip should take down the whole lot?

All kitchen appliances should be on ground fualt outlets & breakers,If an appliance is on a g.f. outlet it should only blow that particular outlet so all you have to do is push the reset button.Outlets and lights should be on different breakers,so that if the outlet breaker blows you will still have lights

Oven works but after it has been cooking for a period it shuts the Electrical Safety Switch off. Restart & it just keeps happening.


Well it may be the breaker that the oven is connected to, overheating the switch and tripping it. Try replacing the breaker switch (main breaker box in the house rv) is the best thing, but you can place a small fan from say a old computer or laptop conected to a old cellphone charger, there both dc powered. Just make sure that when you fix it to the breaker switch you leave plenty of room for the switch to trip if it has to ' to avoid house fires'. I had to do this one year because the heater I plugged in was over loading my breaker and had to Jerry rig a old computer processor fan to keep it cool while heating that area of my house

Ive got a d90d25eslr111-b1 micro combi,i poached an egg ani ie exploded in the micro,it blew the electic and went off,if i swith it on its ok,as soon as i shut the door it fuses the electric. why plea


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermostat might be defective. Watch our video on testing thermostats.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermoprotector may have tripped. This is a safety device to prevent the microwave from overheating. It can be tested for continuity to see if it's blown.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the high voltage transformer might have an intermittent short. This is not common. Check other components related to the microwave symptom first.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and control panel might be defective. There are several other components that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components before replacing this board.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops there may be a short circuit in the main control board. Check other components first, these boards are often misdiagnosed.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently.

Tripped fuse for sockets when switched on. Problem is with kettle not base as checked on diff base. No visible damage evident. Can it be repaired?


Its likely that there is a fault in the element so by the time you pay for a new element and the cost of replacement it would probably over half the cost of a new kettle.

We have a sunbeam peace and quiet kettle ke7500s it is approx 3months old. When we reboil the water there's always a tainted water taste in the tea and coffee .The taste is so bad we tip out the hot...


As you know friend, some water when it is boiled it really taste bad so I suggest use a water purifier to filter other out dirt, dust, other particles in a water street supply. Sure when you drink the water (not boiled) it doesn't taste bad, that's normal because we can't distinguish it easily. Also try to clean your kettle using baking soda it will eliminate tainted taste.
I hope my advice help you with your problem.

When my dishwasher drains both sides of sink fill with water...then they both eventually drain back into the dishwasher.


Sounds like your sink drain trap or line is clogged. When the dishwasher drains, the sink drain can't keep up, the water backs up, then backs down the dishwasher drain line into the dishwasher. You may not notice the slow line when you run a little water into the sink, but with the amount of water coming from the dishwasher the problem is worse. You can try taking off the trap under the sink and making sure it's clear. If the problem is farther down the drain line, you can try snaking it yourself, or call a plumber. I don't recommend using Liquid Plumr or Drano because if those don't work, they leave the line full of caustic chemicals for the next person who works on it. That can be dangeerous.

Dishwasher will start washing and then trip the power


this is in micrfowave ovens Wrong Category...

However if the circuit contsantly trips when using the dishwasher, take a look to see what other appliances are also being used at that time.

Electric jugs/kettles will overload the circuit, so will TV;s etc. Have an electrician divide the power plugs in that circuit to a new circuit breaker and reduce some of the load. Est cost is 80-$100

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

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

Opening the door blows the fuse


more than likely you door safety switch has a short and every time you pull the door open the connections arc and trip the breaker or blows the fuse.

GE Microwave Spacesaver shuts down and trips circuit


I would suspect your high voltage transformer has failed. Here is a link you or someone you know can use for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
