My Panasonic microwave trips house circuit breaker when START is pressed with any amount of cook time. The clock works fine. I tried a 20-amp house circuit with the same results. If I reset the house breaker, set the clock, put in 1 second on the cook time, press START - <circuit tripped>.

I don't have any service manual to show which parts are which, and since I would be dealing with high voltage - I really would like to know before I go poking around...
