It's just the microwave that shuts off, not the fridge. Every time the kitchen breaker kicks, I have to reset the clock on the microwave, I've never noticed the fridge shutting off. I just checked all connections on both the microwave and kitchen plug and they are as tight as they will ever be. It's a straight shot to the panel for both circuits (no junctions) and everything in the panel is tight

Like I said, I don't know much about this stuff but the microwave has a micoprosseser that runs on DC which is effected be the wave cycle of the AC when the breaker trips. Maybe someone who knows this stuff will come along and explain this.
