Kelvinator Electrical Outlet Safe For Microwave?

Hello,

I have an old Kelvinator stove/range with a regular power outlet on it. The range is from the 90's. I was wondering if it is safe to plug a 1300w microwave into the outlet? I have tried it and it does work, but is it safe?

Attached are some diagrams of the Kelvinators circuitry which was printed on the back.

Hi, I donít see a problem with that, the outlet is protected by a 15 Amp fuse.

Usually a microwave is left plugged in all the time.
Having a power cord by that rear burner all the time not safe.

Thanks Geochurchi.

Probably a poor design choice to have the outlet back there. Thankfully the microwave plug is 90į so it just goes right off the side. Plus, I've never actually used the back burners comes to think of it lol.
