I went out on a new (actually used, it came from the $ears outlet) built in Kenmore/Frigidaire Microwave / Oven combo yesterday with the complaint of no power.
Verified circuit breaker was on. So I pulled it out of the wall. Took the back panel of the oven off and was confused when I had 240V between L1 and N and 0V from L2 to N. So I assumed that the "certified $ears installer" didn't wire it right in the junction box.
So I killed the power and went to check the wires and the box fell apart. It was taped together with electrical tape... I found the neutral just hanging there touching the metal box. So I put a wire nut on it and turned power back on. And now I have proper voltage to the unit. Just no power. Took everything apart and the control boards were burned up. So I called the store where they bought it from and told them to get the installer top fix it or get them a new unit. Because $ears warranty doesn't cover idiotic installs...
Now my question is, why did I have 240 from L1 to N?
