The unit shut down when I attempted to heat some food.The circuit was blown and had to be reset.Did it blow a fuse and if so can I change it.


Is it a built in or counter top model? If countertop
, check gfci.
Do the lights/ panel work? If so, could be many things including door switch, fuse etc.

Machine will not turn on


from online Microwave Repair Manual: Totally dead oven (no lights, no clock, no display, no fan, no heat...)First, check power to the outlet using a lamp or radio you know works. The fuse or circuit breaker at your service panel may have blown/tripped due to an overload or fault in the microwave oven or some other appliance. You may just have too many appliances plugged into this circuit - microwave ovens are high current appliances and should be on a dedicated circuit if possible. If you attempt to run a heating appliance like a toaster or fryer at the same time, you *will* blow the fuse or trip the circuit breaker. A refrigerator should never be plugged into the same circuit for this reason as well - you really don't want it to be without power because of your popcorn!

If you find the fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped, unplug everything from the circuit to which the microwave is connected (keep in mind that other outlets may be fed from the same circuit). Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the same thing happens again, you have a problem with the outlet or other wiring on the same branch circuit. If plugging in the microwave causes the fuse to blow or circuit breaker to trip immediately, there is a short circuit in the power cord or elsewhere.

The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.

Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.

Assuming these are not your problems, a fuse has probably blown although a dead controller is a possibility.


While you can do some repairs on your microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, go to the link at the top of this post.

Loss of power to Whirlpool over the stove AccuWave GH5184XPS-4. Checked circuit breaker and GFI -all OK. No other electrical problems known.


Remove unit and check trip/reset switch on unit. Double check GFCI receptacle with plug tester with GFCI test button.

My unit will shut down completely periodically


Some appliances do not work well when used on a gfci protected circuits. Move the microwave to an outlet that is not reqiured to be gfci protected and it should work fine . If you do not have a dedicated outlet for your microwave , it is a good idea to install one , or have an electrician install one for you.

The microwave stopped working


Ck your gfci breaker in your wash room or bath room. If this dosn't fix it it may be an internal fuse. If this is the case you will need to find what caused breaker to blow or it will happen again.

Periodicallytripping of a GFCI on a 2 circuit shared ground


are you talking same ground or do you mean shared neutral on a multi-wire branch circuit???If this the case one appliance may draw more current on that phase and the current imbalance is sensed by the g.f.c.i.

GFCI Trips After an Hour


It is possible that the extention cord is the problem. Over time wires will heat voltage will drop. Along with the added distance on the code the voltage drop cause a drain and trips the GFCI. Try replacing GFCI and also try opperating without the extension cord.

Where do I find the fuse?


yes you do and this is not reall advisable as there is high voltage components inside.thre is normally a fault with the machine if it blows a fuse.if you want to still try then make sure yoiu unplug it and short the plug on some metal to get rid of any stored charge.the main things to blow a fuse is the door switches sticking,the bulb blowing or a fault with the high voltage system which you would need a special multimeter to yest,hope this helps

Our Engineering Compamy Here In CANADA Montreal Quebec, Is Recommending To Use A 20Amp 2P-120V GFCI Breaker To Split A 15/20---120V Receptacle?? I Heard From Siemens Canada, That We Can Connect The Split...


First of all, is this to power a microwave?

If so, it is always recommended that microwave be on it's own breaker with nothing else attached to that breaker. This is due to the typically high current draw (12+ amps) of the oven.

The most important items which should be on a ground fault interrupter are those which may fall into water or get wet, but it's of course never a bad idea to use a GFI.

If this doesn't answer your question, please rephrase it with some more details.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
