Dedicated Microwave Circuit


More On Microwave Circuits

Microwaves are required by NEC code to be on a dedicated circuit. To find this requirement it is under Single Family Dwelling Kitchen Circuitry NEC 210.52(b) and 210.8(a). according to the NEC code there needs to be 2 or more 20 amp circuits for all receptacles that are for small appliances. these appliances include any counter top appliance and need to be GFCI protected. Your Refrigerator and gas powered stove is also allowed to be on this circuit. There is no minimum restriction that is required on how many outlets are to be on these 2 circuits. Your Garbage disposal, dishwasher, exhaust fans, and microwaves need to be on there own circuits. Many people get caught up on wanting to design a new kitchen so that there house value increases. They end up hiring handymen or unqualified people to wire up their kitchen, that do not understand the code requirements that are needed for safety. They end up finishing the entire project with new cabinets and paint and with new appliances. This is when the licensed electrician receives the call about faulty circuitry in their kitchen. They have breakers tripping, GFCI wired incorrectly, lights flickering and the list goes on. The electrician ends up diagnosing the kitchen circuits only to find out that nothing was done according to code and needs to be redone so that the circuitry is done correctly and safely. This ends up costing the homeowner more because the wiring has to be removed and installed properly. Always seek a licensed electrician to valuate exactly what is needed so your kitchen project does not end up in a disaster.
