Range Shut off

I have a Frigidaire range that malfunctions when I am preheating. The range is 12 amp and the microwave on the same circuit is 12.3. they are on 20 breaker. Is that why my range malfunctions? If so, how can I fix the problem? TIA!

Yes if both units are running then it can blow the breaker.

Only fix is to move one to another circuit.

What type of range is only 12 amps?
A range as I know it needs to be on a 40 or 50 amp circuit.
Microwave should be on a dedicated circuit.

Is the range gas or electric?

Welcome to the forums.

Please post the model number for the range.

Most likely the malfunctioning within the range has nothing to do with the breaker or the circuit.

The consequence of too much of a load on a correctly wired circuit is tripping of the breaker.
