Question about Microwave Ovens
As a rule of thumb, mutliply the total power consumed by the appliance, (see manufacturers label) by 1.5. That means a 1kW oven requires a 1.5kW supply.
Power in Watts = Voltage X Current (Ohms Law).
Current therefore is equal to Power divided by the Voltage.
In the UK that would be:
1500Watts divided by 240Volts equals approximately 6Amperes.
In the States it would be:
1500Watts divided by 110Volts equals approximately 14Amperes so much fatter cable will be required!
Hope that answers your question.
