    Hi
    I would like to know if a microwave oven (Sharp) desiged for 100volts 60cps would be workable with 100 volts, 50cps.
    Your comments are highly appreciated
    Thank you

    The machine should work without damage on 50 cycles.

    You may notice a slight reduction in power depending upon the generosity of the internal power supply design.

    If the machine is old enough to use a synchronous timer control, as opposed to an electronic one, the timer will read slow. That is a setting of one minute will actually correspond to 72 seconds.
