In that case the outlet your using is pushing out too much electricity. Try calling your local electric company for help or a professional electric repair man.

Breakers can trip when an appliance is using more power than what the wire of that curcuit is rated for. i.e. a microwave might use 20 amps on start up on a15 amp breaker. This will cause a trip. Try a smaller watt microwave or run a larger wire size on a propper breaker to the outlet

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.

You have a shorted high voltage capacitor.

Here is a link you or someone you know can use to test it, but please read the safety info:

Call any service center that services appliances or most any electronics parts supplier. You will have to know the specs of the thermo fuse to order one.

If the thermo fuse is blown, most likely there was an overheating condition, and there is a failure somewhere. This can be a serious safety issue. When you change the fuse, it may blow again. It would be best to verify the specifications and for proper operation of the unit before using it again. A qualified service center for microwave ovens can do this for you.

Blown Fuse


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.
