I have a fairly large microwave mounted above my double oven Jenn air convection oven WW2780B. The microwave is (I think) plugged into a regular 110 volt outlet ...and not into the Jenn air.

I did all of this many years ago and I think that, after I had it all put in...I realized that the double oven probably had an appliance outlet .....which I didn't use.

No problem for years, but now a combination of the 10,000 light (kidding) Christmas Tree; newer, larger big screen TV AND the microwave on the same circuit...is blowing the 15 amp breaker. Without the Christmas tree....or without either of the other items...no problems.

Before I mess up my neat installation...I need to know if there is an appliance outlet on the double oven. I presume that the appliance outlet ( if it exists) would feed off of the wiring for the double oven and might cure my problem. I'll uninstall the microwave ( it is BIG, HEAVY, and about 6 feet off of the floor) and plug it into the oven's appliance outlet if that will help.

I went to the Jenn Air site but the manual that I found there didn't help.

Thanks, and any help appreciated. thanks Rich

Is your oven gas or electric?

Far as I can tell, there shouldn't be an appliance outlet or a regular plug any where on that unit.

It is electric...Even if the answer is NO......I am ahead because I didn't have to pull the whole mess apart to find out there isn't one there. R

No convenience outlet in a Wall Oven (some ranges have them) - you may just have a weakening 15 A breaker if this is a new issue. Unusual to have kitchen/microwave circuit combined with television room etc - that's against code here

Thank you. Some years ago a local "electrician" came in and dealt with the breaker blowing problem by replacing the original 15 amp breaker with a 20 amp. It "solved" the problem but I knew it wasn't the right way to deal with it.

A month ago, I had a real electrician come in and go over the house wiring He, of course, found that the breaker was the wrong size for the wiring ...so I had him change it back to a 15 .

No issues UNTIL the Christmas tree was put up the other day. We will run the Christmas tree to another outlet ( that doesn't blow when we have the issues) and I thnk that will solve the problem. Thanks for all of your help Rich

Wonder why he didn't upgrade it to a dedicated circuit -

No problem for years, is blowing the 15 amp breaker.

Yep, no conduit. In hindsight..I should have had him do it anyhow...but..I forgot about the Christmas tree trouble time. Thanks for all of the help. Great site! R
