I wouldn't recommend a DIY power center replacement to someone who didn't know that it was the brown box on the wall.

If it is only your Microwave, then check all your breakers which might not be labeled correctly. turn each one off and on do nothing with the 30 amp one. The 30 amp should be your main power the rest should be 15 or 20 amp. and the 30 amp is on top unless you 50 amp service. don't shut the 30 or 50 off on top. If you do you will lose all power. Same breakers as your home.....

I don't know he might have had a bad PDI, this isn't rocket science...

If it is only the mw, it could be as simple as a GFI is tripped.

Blown converter.

Blown microwave.

We will order both and replace. George, your link will come in handy!

We have a battery charger hooked up so we can finish out the weekend.

Thanks, everyone!
