• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

Oster built-in microwave question: 220VAC on a standard NEMA 5-15P plug?

I recently bought an Oster OJYE1201 built-in microwave. The manual states to supply it with 220V at 60Hz, yet the plug on the cable is a standard NEMA 5-15P. I thought NEMA 5-15P was only for 110VAC. I've written to Oster with no reply. Anyone seen 220VAC 60Hz (2 hot legs) presented on a NEMA 5-15P?

TIA!

I'm not familiar with Ecuador power or power outlets.

So why don't you go back to where you got it and ask them?

I have just buy the same microwave, also with nema 5-15 I tried with 110v and didn't warm the food, so plugged into 220v phase-phase-earth and is working perfect, the plug is not under the correct specifications.
