Hello JudyKitz,
That mesh is there to protect the user and acts as a shield to contain microwave energy to the cooking compartment. Never compromise that material.. You can purchase replacment liners at this site http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5130353 If you prefer, you can get a thin piece or sheet plastic cut to fit at many local hardware stores or home centers..You may want to make a paper template or take accurate measurements with you for that method.. Hope this helps you..

The bottom inside part of my Oster microwave is peeling up pretty bad where the plaste circle with wheels turn the glass. Don't use it much for this to happen....is it still safe and is there any recalls...


Using the microwave with exposed metal can cause additional problems. You can remove the loose paint, lightly sand the area and reprint with microwave cavity paint. The paint can be purchased from your local parts distributer, or find it online. Follow the instructions on the can.

PROBLEMS WITH MICROWAVE OVENS PEELING INSIDE


It`s not you that`s caused the problem, it`s the condensation from the cooking which gets under the paint, It`s worth investing in a stainless steel lined oven. Ian

Small tear on plastic lining covering the inside of the door


That clear cover (sometimes called the inner door screen) is very important.

It protects the metal mesh / screen from debris and corrosion. The metal screen allows you to see "what's cooking" (*grin*) but prevents microwaves from leaking out of the door due to the precise size of the openings in the mesh.

If the mesh rusts or gets grease or food on it, it can arc, and this can damage the screen, then microwaves can leak, causing a burn or fire hazard. (No "radiation" threat, though)

If no arcing or other damage has occurred yet, you can clean the area squeaky with alcohol, then dry it completely and use the smallest possible amount of clear Scotch tape or packing tape to cover the tear and make sure it's flat.

If this fix doesn't work, or it's too big an area, you will have to replace the sheet, which can be ordered.

You'd have to heat it up with a hair dryer, peel it off slowly, then clean the area with something like acetone, then peel and stick the new one.

If you need to or prefer to order it, I would need your brand and model number to help you further.

PEELING COATING IN MY SUNBEAM MICROWAVE OVEN


Yes, if the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

Otherwise, you can have rust and arcing.

Microwave door has burnt patch: is it safe to operate?


From your other post:

The paint should be available at big box stores like Wal-Mart, home improvement centers like Builder's Square, Lowe's, or Home Depot, or hardware stores or local appliance parts stores.

You can order the plastic sheet (called the "door film") here. It is part # WB06X10490.

Be sure the mesh is clean and dry before installing the new film.

Non-Stick surface peeling off inside microwave.


Normally you can strip and sand the old paint, get it squeaky clean, and use appliance paint. Yes indeed it is a heat-resistant enamel. You can get it from appliance parts stores, Wal-Mart, or home centers, etc. BUT if it's under warranty I would call GE Customer Relations with your model and serial numbers. They're at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET) and I would also suggest you ask them for a referral to a GE-authorized servide center in your area. Good luck. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of this answer.
