Question about Hotpoint Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Hi. I have a hotpoint ud47i fan assisted oven which keeps tripping the oven related fuse box. Can't find any obvious faults. Strange thing is that once I reset the fuse box, the oven works again for 5-10 mins before tripping. Apart from spending a lot of money replacing the oven, can anybody suggest the problem? Oven or electrics? Thanks

The oven is tripping the circuit because it is pulling to many amps.

Best thing to do is get an electrician to install a larger amp circuit for you. This will fix the problem and should be cheaper than another stove.

Testimonial: "Thanks, really appreciate the advice. I thought maybe as the unit is 5 years old that it may of been a faulty circuit board. Great advice. "

The fact the breaker in the fusebox tripped indicates a fault in the appliance that is probably safety related. If it was the mcb (micro circuit breaker) it indicates a sudden overload. If it was the rcd (residual current device) it indicates there might have been a live circuit shorted to earth.

The fault is likely to be internal and it is potentially dangerous for unqualified people to fiddle about inside microwave ovens. Many brands are cheap throw-away items these days because a visit to the repair shop tends to cost more than a replacement.

The Neff brand is a premium brand and although repair costs are expensive it is likely to be (marginally) cheaper than a replacement.

Hotpoint model 6671P convection microwave keeps tripping mains panel Fuse when start is pressed. Could this be a problem with a fuse in the Microwave or is is a dud magnatron? How best to test?


Too many watts on same circuit. Plug it into a different outlet and see what happens, not on same circuit. So one that stays live when micro trips circuit breaker.

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.

Exhast fan and light not working. Can hear relay trip when button pressed. Microwave/convection oven functions work ok.


Hi,
This may just be a blown bulb if the fan and light are in series.
If the bulb and fan connections check out ok, it may be a fault in the power supply to that side of things.
Do not operate with covers off or override interlocks to test. Test only with unit unplugged.

Tripped a breaker


sometime the kitchen has gfc outlets around the walls and one of them tripped. but not likely , it sounds like the microwave fried some valuable circuitry.
