Since the GFCI outlet didn't trip, it's not a ground fault. The specs you
list don't exactly jibe as 700 watts @120 volts doesn't equal 10 amps, but
in any event it would appear you have a problem with the microwave, assuming
it is in fact a dedicated circuit. Try plugging a toaster or similar
appliance in that outlet and see if it works

My microwave is on a separate circuit with a outlet ( the type name
escapes me )...something fault or whatever. its white with a black and
red button. The specs of oven is 700watts, 120 v ac 60 hz, 10 amps.
Today, as reheating on high for 2 and 1/2 minutes, it conked out. This
never happened before. I pressed both buttons on the outlet which did
not seem to have any effect, so i had to go to the basement and reset
the fuse. Is there something wrong with the oven or the circuit?
I;m sorry, I left out the consumption power...its 1150 w. Well the oven
is working now after I tripped the fuse back on.
