Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly. Does anything work on the unit and when does it trip the fuses?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. the microwave just keeps beeping at odd intervals. I think it is possessed...

My response does not appear to be going through
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
So it works but just trips the fuse at random times?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just the microwave currently. The oven trips the fuse if turned on.

Can you check the power cord connection to the unit also is the circuit breaker tripping?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, the circuit breaker is not tripped. It is wired directly into the power box internally. The unit is built into the cabinetry and has to be pulled out to see behind it. It takes two people to get it out due to its weight.

So it is blowing the glass tube bus fuse correct?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Don't think this is helping. Thanks any way
