Microwave issue

We have an issue with our 2010 Forest River 29ft travel trailer, the microwave overheats when using and shuts down and sometimes power breakers trip when using microwave. Breaker is on but microwave shuts off for about 15minutes and cannot use, anyone running into this problem?

As cheap as microwaves are, I would trash it and go to Wally World, Target or Kmart and get a replacement. Not worth the hassle of seeing if it is covered by warranty and a trip to the dealer.

The cooling fan probably quit for some reason. Should be able to hear the fan when the MW is running. Of course unless you are good at appliance repair you should stay out of a microwave. Fans are not real expensive but then neither are MW's from wally world. It is just getting one that fits the FR frame.
