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?

You're a hair over 80% with 1500 watts on that 15 amper, if breaker trips instantly I suspect it's not a current issue but rather an arc fault or equipment failing. Breaker or micro imo.
