Most microwave ovens draw more than 1KW they are only 70% efficient on average.

How many amps is this microwave?


You do not give a make and model. The average microwave is about 1000 watts output power, with an efficiency of about 70%, meaning that it draws about 1400 watts. At 110VAC this equates to a current draw of about 12 A, quite high.

I put my Microwave on for 30 min and it suddenly stopped working, suggestions?


If there is no power at all to the display or the panel then it is failure of the board. But if there is power without heating, if the turntable/fan/light works, then it can be related to failure of relay, Magnetron, Waveguide or capacitor.

My microwave does not heat as hot as it use to. What would cause that.


Here is a simple power test.
Place a measured cup of water into the microwave. Run the micro for 2 minutes. A 1000 watt micro will boil a cup of water in 2 min. Check the power output of your machine. It will be found on the model number tag. A 700 watt micro will take about 3 minutes. If this occurs, the machine is working properly.
Otherwise, check the outlet voltage, should be 110 or higher.
Outside of this, you could need a high voltage capacitor or magnetron.

How can i convert our 220 volts wall outlet to 110 volts for a microwave oven.


Find the breaker for it (a double for 220) and substitue a single breaker (for 110). This will leave one wire unused from the breaker box to the outlet. You'll have to change the outlet of course to accommodate a normal 110 plug. You can also skip the breaker part and just change the outlet and cap off 1 of the hot wires. Just make sure to kill the power and be safe!

How many micro wave ovens will a 20 amp circuit support?


Please stick with me to the end ... some examples are for example only. There is no 1000 watt circuit per'ci.

This will not be possible overload, this is an accident waiting to jump on you, my friend

Install dedicated circuits for these ovens, my friend. It will cost you a little but will be better than having dissatisfied guests or talking to the zoning board or boarding house authority or (gasp) the fire inspector after the fire.

If you don't do this, when the breakers start flipping off, tenants will run extension cords to outlets that have power. A whole different and worse, problem!

Rule of thumb, lighting circuits should be designed to operate at 80%, for example, if you have 800 watts of lights on a 1000 watt circuit, you are at the max.

So, there is a possibility that your circuit for lights is already near max. Adding ovens is trouble. Don't forget the iPOds and cell phone chargers as well as lap top chargers, walkman chargers (older students), little TV's, DVD players, clock radio's, electric shavers, curling irons, steamers, popcorn makers, lava lamps and occasional electric heaters that will be snuck into the room.

What is a 1000 watt circuit ... good question. Ohms law comes into play here.

Volts X Amps = Watts
120 volts X 8.333 amps = 500 watts (a smoothie blender) 300 watts (slow cooker) 200 watts (hand mixer) = 1000 watts.


A 15 amp circuit will protect #14 wire and can carry about 1800 watts (a toaster (1500 watts), for example).

A 20 amp circuit will protect #12 wire and can carry about 2400 watts (i am using a big paint brush here. these numbers are pretty close but not exact and I am not a licensed electrician.)

When I wire, I aim lots lower, preferring to OVER build than to under build.

10 amp circuits are rare in modern homes. In general practice, if the need was to be protected at 10 amps, the wire used in the circuit would be #14 and it would be protected by the breaker at 10 amps. In this case, it is the device plugged into this 10 amp circuit that needs protection rather than the #14 wire (which would be technically oversized)

Another consideration for you is where is the water? If you have an outlet that is 5 feet from a water source (bath - kitchen - etc) it must be protected by a GFIC

A 30 amp circut will protect #10 wire --- but this is not a normal household circuit.

Maybe the best option is for you to have your electrician install a sub panel in the vicinity of use and run several 20 amp circuits from that location to the various rooms.

The answer to your question "How many (1150 watt)micro wave ovens will a 20 (amp circuit handle)" is TWO with nothing else on the line. The National Code requires dedicated circuits for micro wave ovens, BTW. A commercial application may have a different (more stringent) standard in your town.

I'm not finding it in the owner's manual, but there is a tag inside the cavity which should tell you either how many amps it requires or how many input watts it consumes.

If it gives you power in watts, just divide: #watts / 120V = current in amps.

If that tag doesn't tell you, maybe one on the back of the unit will.

It will probably be 13-18 amps, depending on whether its power output is 950 watts or 1200 watts.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

d:%5cele%5crepair%5cmicrowave%5cge_hotpoint%5cmini_manual_behind_grille_small.jpgdee77f7.jpg

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

On that mini-manual, there should be a troubleshooting flowchart, and it will have a few different current measurement values on it. You should be able to decipher the normal draw from that.

If you're just trying to figure out how many amps the breaker should be on the microwave's power line, figure 15A for an oven rated at less than about 1000 watts output power, and 20A for an oven rated at over 1000W.

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

Surface and night light bulbs


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the bulb you need is part #AP2029997, made by GE. You can also purchase these bulbs at any hardware store. They are the half sized small base, 40 watt bulbs. If you can't find 40 watt, make sure you use a lower wattage rating. If you have questions, or if the model number is incorrect, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Need small microwave for inverter on houseboat


Look at the rating sticker on the oven and use the AC power rating as your guide. The cooking power of the oven is not important, but the power it needs from the AC supply is. Voltage times current is the supply power needed (watts), and you want an oven that will draw less than the inverter's continuous rating, less any power being used by other appliances.

For instance, a microwave rated for 120 volts AC at 10 amps needs 1200 watts. Your inverter would be OK with this as long as other devices aren't using more than another 1000 watts. You can't use the inverter's peak rating. That's only for brief bursts, like when the microwave first kicks on and draws some extra current.

Any mid-power (600 watts or so) oven should be OK.

Using too much electicity!


We have been checking our electricity units
Not sure how you are checking but your microwave would blow fuses or trip a breaker if it was drawing more than it did since they are only ~ 50% efficient (any of them) which means a 1000 watt unit is pushing the limits of normal household circuits anyhow.
I bought two Kill-A-Watt power monitors for our two households and we are all happy with their convenience and the ability to quickly check anything that plugs into a standard US outlet and they are plenty accurate enough for us heathens.
Take a look:

I didn't price-shop too much but ours came to only $14 each plus shipping of $10 US.
