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?

Is it a dual purpose circuit breaker? Is it a legacy arc fault circuit breaker? Is it a broken microwave oven?

Me? I toss microwaves if they act up in any way.
