When I connected my microwave oven to a voltage stabilizer which is being used for refrigerator,the microwave oven motor starts working without any functions provided.The motor keeps on rotating at lower rpm. What could be the reason behind this?

Perhaps your "voltage stabilizer" doesn't output sinusoidal voltage and this produces harmonics which upset the oven's sensors. – RedGrittyBrick Aug 23 '13 at 19:39
Does the microwave really need to be connected to the stabilizer? I can understand why a refrigerator would need it, but not a microwave. – wallyk Aug 23 '13 at 20:39
