Help! I can't have my tv, coffee pot and microwave on at the same time without tripping a breaker. My house was built pre-microwave and electric coffee pot. Do I need to have all new wiring installed in the entire house?

You don't need the entire house rewired. You do need to have some additional circuits installed or stop trying to use everything at once. You could also try to find anothe circuit to plug into.

No, but you need to fix this.
A new circuit for the microwave will help.
