    Judy was doing some cooking in the "Half Time Oven"..... when it just stopped...

    I have checked behind where the fuse panel and all the trip switches are.. and the one marked "Microwave" has tripped... :cry:

    I have tried to lift or switch it back on but no joy...

    Do they reset after a period of time?

    Any idea`s, please.. :thumb:

    as Brian said, if you can unplug the microwave the better...may be a fault in the flex !

    switch the breaker back on then the oven.....if it trips again you have a faulty oven (or flex) and will lose weight rapidly due to hunger.

    Make sure it is pushed right down (off) before attempting to reset. I have found some that need this to reset.

    Agreed John, but American breakers are pretty primative and they may not have caught up with technology yet :Doh:

    Thanks for all the suggestions, those that said to push the LCB switch down past the off to reset were 100% correct..

    Olley on the RVOC told me to try this which I did and it reset..

    Again thanks all for suggestions.. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    I was told by an RV mech". that our electrickery is a different frequency to the US so it"s best to unplug yer" microwave/combi oven if not in use. We had to buy one a few years ago cos" it died and were told that was the cause.:Angry:
