Convection oven tripping breaker...Newmar 07 KSDP GE Profile Convection Oven
It's happened twice now this week. As I research this I see that Microwave Convection ovens draw 12.4 amps? The circuit breaker it trips is 15 amp.
A YouTube electrician says that breakers will tolerate the rated load temporarily, continually they will tolerate 80% of the rating. That would be 12 amps, no wonder it trips the breaker, if it is drawing 12.4.
So, I am asking myself, why would the Convection circuit no have a 20 amp breaker. It seems that several other outlets are on this circuit.
The breaker is a double breaker, one switch is 15 the other 20.
Anyone think I have a problem with the oven?
Why not upgrade it to a 20/20 breaker? Anyone think Newmar would use two different gages of wire?
Lots of Newmar rigs out there, what is happening to me that is different from others?
