Question about Sharp R-510HW Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Arcing at rear vent, blew circuit breaker, previous voltage imbalance to house

Pop, flash and death of oven occurred upon pushing Start. The regular household outlet used also died, its' breaker won't reset. Same pop and flash happened using protected kitchen outlet which did not trip. When I moved here (a rehabbed army base) a TV popped/died when first turned on; A computer Power Supply/Surge protecter would beep whenever central air started. NYSEG power people said to call an electrician, but when I said I would fix it myself, said they'd be right over. They "found" that the 110/110 setup for this house was like 130/90 and fixed it. Maybe 'till now? Apart from all this, this unit vibrated REALLY a lot, though customer reviews said this was"normal". A toaster oven on a pad on top made vibration just real. (Not used simultaneously). Whatdoyouthink?

I would replace all of the wiring and install a higher grade fuse box. Who knows what the army could have setup in there.
