Why is My Microwave Clock Always Wrong?
Your microwave clock is always wrong because there is something wrong with the power supply to the microwave. The microwave clock is powered by the AC power it gets from the wall outlet or the DC power it gets from the batteries.
When you shift the microwave from AC to DC power supply, it can change or reset the microwave clock. Moreover, when there is power outage in your area, the microwave won’t get power supply for a few hours. So, its clock will be reset.
If there is noise or fluctuations in the power supply line in your house or that particular power outlet, it can affect the microwave clock. It is possible that the clock on your microwave runs faster or slower than the actual clock.
Some people have a habit of unplugging the microwave from the wall outlet at night. It directly affects the clock on the microwave. If you remove the microwave plug from the power outlet, you will have to set the clock on your microwave when you plug it in again.
