Outdoor kitchen has limited power

I have a 2014 sandpiper 365saq. The outdoor kitchen has a brand new mini fridge and built in mircrowave. The microwave has lights on and displays the time. When you use it, it looks like it is working but after ten minute, the item is hardly warm. The fridge has lights on when plugged in, but never gets cold after weeks.

Everything inside works perfectly fine. I am on 30 amp site and plugged into shore power always.

You help would be amazing.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. check the microwave for power setting it might be on the lowest. I would also say check the frig thermostat and ensure it is on the coldest setting. Let the forum know what you find.

X2 on checking settings. A microwave will not normally run on significantly reduced voltage. Also check the wattage on the microwave. It may be a lower wattage and require more "cooking time" than the one you may be used to at home.

I put the fridge on coldest setting. I came back two hours later and it was actually getting hot/warm inside the fridge.

The fridge is done. Buy a new one. The system is running backwards. In the kitchen with the door closed the compressor gets heated up and just fails. Chance are the compressor valve is shot.
