Question about Microwave Ovens
Goldstar Microwave has a small tear on the plastic lining covering the inside of the door, is it ok to keep using the microwave----if not can the cover on the inside of the door be replaced?
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.
