Customer Question
Microwave oven trips circuitbreaker. ...

Microwave oven trips circuitbreaker.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the microwave's make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Its a Frigidare 5 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Don't know yet.......I have no experience on this

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The problem began a couple of weeks ago. When the CB tripped the first few times, I reset it and it would be OK for a few days. Now when it trips, it stays that way.
