My e wave microwave appears to be in fine working order until the door is opened. It then trips the breaker and ceases working. Ater the house breaker is reset, the power is restored to the microwave until the door is opened again.. I havve tried plugging the microwave into another area that is on a different power breaker but again the breaker trips and the microwave ends all functions. Have you any solutions to my problem?

My vacuum stopped working and tripped a circuit breaker in my apartment. I plugged it into a circuit with higher amperage, and the circuit tripped after the vacuum ran for a few seconds then a bit of smoke puffed out of it. I assume the motor is burned out. Can I repair this? Considering buying a refurbished one for around $70 - which is probably less than round trip shipping back to the manufacturer (this is way out of warranty).

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank


You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
