This would not be practical. The step-up transformer would have to be
rated to atleast 1500 Watts. This is going to weigh a lot and be fairly
expensive. It may infact approach close to the cost of a new microwave
If the microwave is not marked 50/60 Hz on the back plate this may end
up being very hard on the main power transformer in the microwave oven.
It is going to probably run fairly hot, and under efficient.
You can enquire to the manufacture if they have a power transformer as a
replacement for your model that is rated for the AC mains specifications
that you plan to use it on. The cost of replacement may reach the cost
of a new oven.

on the operation of the microwave???
