@stolicat I can empathize; my new 1200 watt microwave has tripped my circuit breaker for the third time in as many weeks. My mistake was using it with the room lights on
I’m not sure I should blame my ancient wiring or my ancient circuit breakers – which you can no longer by any new ones of. (I’m awaiting on a couple of replacement used ones from eBay.) And a house wiring update is not in my budget for the near future.
@stolicat amps = watts / volts. So a 1400 watt microwave plugged into a 120v outlet = 11.7 amps. If your breaker was designed for a load of 20 amps, this shouldn’t be a problem unless you have another 8 amps of devices plugged into the same circuit. And 1400 watt is a peak high current draw.
@braveit1 It’s not so much the breaker - I have a 20A breaker running ancient, under-sized frayed wiring which was never meant to handle much more than 1000W.
The house is very old, and has had multiple owners & tenants, and many DYI “improvements & additions” to its electrical, plumbing and heating systems that have led to much mirth and hilarity when something finally fizzles out for good.
I checked google t geta review on this Air Fryer & at Amazon the reviews were good, but this AF was only $49.99 which do mean this deal is $11 cheaper, so it’s cheaper, but not the big deal of the day, IF ya happen ta have Amazon Prime, otherwise it’s $12.99 for shipping, or is $62.98, ergo, ya save about $24 afore taxes; a better deal, though still not hardly the great savings meh is known to offer,…but what the hell!! Still, I’m gonna hold out for some better deal; there’s a whole hour left!! Regardless, I got a Indoor Grill & Griddle(?) ta play with + 10 nice colored knives, so I can grill me a fun chicken!!
