The peeling of the white coating inside of the microwave oven is dangerous in terms of creating a fire hazard and potentially contaminating the food you cook within it. This can be prevented by cleaning up all splatters and spills immediately before using the microwave oven again. You can fix the peeling by replacing the microwave oven or repairing it. To repair it, you will have to remove the peeling coating and then repaint the interior of the microwave with paint that is designed for microwaves in general. Though, if you do this, you will have to let the paint dry up for at least 24 hours. I hope this helps you!

    You can buy this paint from any good hardware store like Home Depot. I believe the paint you can use is enamel paint, but just to be sure, ask customer service about this at Home Depot. They would know the answer to this best of all.

High temp paint is NOT the right stuff... Why you ask? Because after applying it, after 1 hour to NO MORE than 8 hours later, it must be heat cured in a NON-FOOD over @ 650 degrees F for 45-60 mins to cure it.

The best, longest lasting paint IMO is a good EPOXY base prime with an epoxy appliance paint. If rust holes are in it, it can be fixed, but MUST be done proper (welded) and sanded smooth as any sharp cabin disturbance will cause arcing. Preperation is key so STRIP all the factory cheap azz powdercoat and start from metal. Roughing is not enough as I can tell you the rust you see extends much farther under powdercoat that looks perfectly fine. I usually chem strip with Aircraft remover (Don't substitute). This will get the bulk, but not all of it unless you reapply 10x and the cost per can would defeat fixing it. A heat gun works wonders.... I start by using slow cure epoxy glue to seal the seams in the cabin. Let sit overnight. Hit the epoxy to smooth and rough it so the finish coats stick proper. With this technique the paint should outlast the factory cheap china clearcoat over bare steel by 4x or better.... In other words.... The last time it will need to be done (Except maybe in commercial apps)

SOURCE: plscti/ teflon coating inside the microwave

Is it plastic or paint? I would be surprised if it were plastic, as that would probably not withstand the microwave energy.

If it needs to be repainted, that can be done if it is cleaned and dried.

High temperature appliance paint is available from stores like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

SOURCE: The clear coating inside the glass door is crumbling. Dangerous?

It depends on how much the radiation is dissipated. Normally the grill on the door prevents and escape of radiation and so this cannot be a threat but a reading outside the door will be good to confirm and if so the door must be replaced.

The white ceiling coat has come away and is falling off. Microwave is out of guarantee. Have I any come back on this. Also, is this dangerous?


Is this by chance a Samsung Microwave?? I just answered a similar question with a picture right before this. In the other post, it looked like the Micro was either painted while it was already rusted or it is rusting from the inside out into the cavity where you cook food. In either case, regardless of age, I would contact the manufacturer and explain to them that this could be a factory defect. Safety issue would be possible paint/rust flakes in uncovered food. If manufacturer puts you off, contact Better Business Bureau.

Is my microwave safe to use if the inside of the oven is pealing?


Most likely if the metal screen in the door is intact. That screen and the metal cover on the back and sides surrounds the insides of the oven reflect the microwaves back into the oven. Just be careful about the peeling plastic inside.

Arcing and flashing during cooking cycle


Arcing and flashing either has to do with having metal parts inside that are not chromed perfectly (better yet only put metal in if it's a microwave convection oven on convection setting only), or some of the powder coating on the inside of the cabinet is damaged. Or a twist tie etc was inside during use. If the cabinet is damaged dispose of unit.

Coating inside oven has de-laminated and rust is forming under coating. Warranty?


Hello spark... no warranty unless the microwave is under 1 year. If there is a lot of rust and delamination you are best off to replace this oven.

The problem with delamination is that it exposes bare metal and can result in dangerous arcing.

If it is not real bad, sand off the rust and spray paint it with microwave cavity spray paint available at this link http://www.appliancezone.com/ShowProduct.aspx?ID=8338&AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1

I'm getting a flash inside the oven and the plastic on the inside roof has a burn mark. I removed the plastic cover over the micro wave generator and it did not spark. is the oven dying? It is a 1983 0ver...


It looks like the metal part inside the oven is exposed to the high frequency rf waves. this may sound strange but try coating the metal part with fresh paint. remember no metal inside the oven will stand the waves created inside the oven the spark u see is the waves hitting the exposed metal part inside the oven

Paint off inside top of microwave exposing metal. Safe to use?


It would be dangerous to do so. Any exposed metal inside a microwave is source for sparks and is extremely hazardous. I would recommend getting the paint job done up, or even better, buy a newer model.

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.
