Samsung 1500w microwave trips arc fault

Hi all, I’ve got a couple units where the Samsung 1500w microwave is tripping the 15 amp arc fault breaker. I’m assuming the microwave is drawing too much power during the spike. Any fixes besides rewriting or replacing microwave?

1500 watts on a 15 amp breaker is a stretch. Close to the max the breaker can handle.

Age of the electrical equipment.
