The microwave should be wired to a dedicated breaker. All the appliances in the kitchen should have dedicated breakers.
Wiring it to the disposal would be a code violation in most areas, and could be a potential fire hazard.

How do you replace the door switch for the door in the microwave oven?

Take the cover off, the switches should be pretty easy to replace. In the several I've done, they just snap out, unplug, and then snap back in.

Every microwave I've worked on has a wiring diagram attached inside the cabinet. The wires are usually just long enough to reach one switch.

There are 2 Black wires which might be a problem... I have a schematic though. If you still need this info, reply to this post and I'll get it to you. Regards, Robert

The white wire on the inside of my nesco american harvest dehydrator is disconnected, where does it go?

The white wire either pushes onto the circuit board and or to the bottom of the heating element you will see another male clip that a white wire clips to as well. Could be either one of those.

If you would be so kind as to let me know which bundle of wires are wire nutted together I would appreciate that. I took mine apart to thoroughly clean it and assumed three black wires were nutted together. Much to my surprise I now see that there was one of two (don't know which one) blue wires that were wire nutted together w/those black wires. Then the other blue wire twists together with the other remaining blue. HELP!!!! Please :)

Wire Diagram

If the plug is not keyed and you cant tell from the wires, it probably doesn't make a difference. You are telling me it is 21 VAC ... AC dont care - and you dont appear to have a common ground situation.

Thermador MBY microwave

The problem is the push-on connector on the UPPER door-latch switch; if the white plastic around this connector is brown (burning), the connection is going bad.

Cut the three white wires back about 1 inch and strip; obtain a new push-on and solder the three white wires into it-- a crimp is NOT sufficient for three wires into this little connector (defective design). Also clean the two blade on the switch before reconnecting as the heat has likely left a burnt coating.
