Thor Chateau Microwave problems

Bought a Thor Chateau last August and have loved it so far! It was "nearly new" with only 2800 miles and the oven didn't look like it had even been used.

Well, a couple of trips out and went to warm up some breakfast sandwiches in the microwave and it beep a few times and shut completely off. Figured maybe kicked a breaker, but decided to just plug it into a different outlet to try and it worked fine.

Later, plugged it back into original outlet and everything worked. Went to warm up some leftovers and it did it again.

Any ideas? the circuit that it is plugged into appears to go on somewhere else, but haven't found anything else not working?

Microwave when plugged into other outlets gives us no problem, so I figure it must be in the outlet?

You might need to check the wires in that particular outlet to make sure they are tight and not loose which could cause the issue.

Good luck

Thanks for the suggestions. I will try checking the outlet for loose connections.

mine has an automatic transfer switch
I think its between the water heater and the microwave. When one is on the other is not. It's so seamless I've never noticed ours working.
