Microwave - Electrical Requirements and Breaker Size

The electrical and breaker size requirements for our Countertop and Over-the-Range Microwaves are as follows:

  • The microwaves require a 120 volt, individual, properly grounded branch circuit with a 3 prong grounding type receptacle protected by a 15 or 20 amp circuit breaker or time-delay fuse.

  • Over-the-Range microwave models should always be on a dedicated circuit.
