Hey all. I’m a new sense user and have spent way too much time the past three days staring at my energy meter – super cool.
Anyway, I noticed a consistent 2000 Watt draw when I use my microwave which seems quite high. It’s on a dedicated “microwave” 20A breaker but that’s slightly more than the max 80% of 20 Amps which I thought was the guideline.
The microwave is a Panasonic NN-SN651B and it lists an input of 12.4 Amps so it appears to be drawing 34% more than expected. The microwave works fine but this seems… a bit disturbing. The sense seems to be accurate for other loads I can measure through different means so I tend to trust the measurement. Anyone else experience extra powerful microwave ovens?
