I've bought an American microwave (GE PEM31) for its physical size (it's
very shallow). It takes 1.2KVA (110VAC @60Hz).
Q1) Does anyone know if I just need to drop the voltage or does the
frequency matter? I do not really mind if the platter rotates a tad slower,
the timing settings are a bit off. The microwave frequency is determined
by the mechanical structure of the magnetron.
Q2) Suggestions for suitable supplier of converter (or I shall just use RS,
Maplin, or Farnell) and what are they called (transformer, auto-transformer,
inverter, converter, etc)
Q3) Is there a better source of information if it is not available here?
Q4) If I open it up to find answers, what am I looking for?
PS I am new to this group so apologise in advance for everything.
