The paint or inside in my microwave oven was bubbling up. I didn't think much of it until my husband came down with tongue cancer. He didn't smoke or drink. The only thing that was strange was the way my microwave was bubbling up inside. We were given very grim news, but in time and by swithcing hospitals, my husband is now ok and has been cancer free for 5 years. If ever my microwaves start blubbling up, I throw them out, it wasn't worth the health hazards.

Yeah its still safe so long as the door itself doesn't appear to have holes in it, i wouldn't worry about it getting hot there are safety devices inside the microwave to stop it getting too hot to continue working correctly and even setting on fire, remember cool air is sucked into microwave to cool it down so make sure theres ventilation all around the oven especially the back......

Need to paint the inside of my 2001/240 v. Ge advanium what do you recommed


I wouldn't recommend painting it. The inside of the microwave is a box that allows microwaves to bounce around off those walls. If you paint the inside of your box you could have a serious fire hazard. I would send and e-mail to GE and see if they recommend anything that is microwave safe.

I have a sharp microwave oven .had it for less than a year and the I inside base has bubbled and the paint is coming off is it still safe to use ?


It is always difficult to give specific advice when the oven cannot be viewed. Howeverwith the risk of paint getting into food replacement would be best. With this being a relatively new microwave it may be under warranty or Sharp may offer some credit for the purchase of a new one 1-800-237-4277

if the unit starts to spark then you can buy microwave paint but if it goes through the door or the base then a professonal repair is best,clean the rust with rubbing paper and coat with thin layers let each one dry and build up a good layer of paint,hope this helps.

Whirlpool gold GT4175SPS-2 inside door paint is flaking and revealing metal. Is it safe to use?


Hi,

Scratches, flaking and bare spots are fairly common, but should be addressed as soon as they arise so the corrosion will not spread and arcing does not occur.

Unplug the power cord first.

Take some mild sanding cloth or scotchbright and clean the bare and rusted areas in the microwave. Use appliance touch up paint to re-coat the surface. You can find the touch up at most anywhere that sells appliances, it comes in a plastic bottle similar in appearance to fingernail polish, yes it does have a brush inside.

Let it dry per the instructions on the bottle or 24 hours if not specified.

Bottom of GE interior door microwave is burnt/rusted


just use sand paper to clean the rust then use some high temperature paint (sold in tins) eg spray paint but it must be labeled high temperature and spray 2 to 3 coats . your microwave should be safe again

PEELING PAINT INSIDE MICROWAVE/TOASTER OVEN


I do have the same problem, but I know they make microwave paint if you can get it from an appliance store or you can order through the web - BUT 2 sites I just looked at said a gloss enamel paint, such as that used to paint "model" toys works just as well. In either case: Smooth the old stuff off, sand lightly (you want no metal dust left -or- damaging any coating on the metal) just sand enough to make sure there's no flakes & it's smooth, then use a gloss enamel paint rather it's approved for microwaves or the Testor's kind.
NEXT -Make sure you DRY with Hairdryer to set the paint, and keep the heat to med or low, don't bubble or scorch your work!) and do not use the microwave for 24 hours!! Leave the door open while drying for several days afterwards if you can. Any fume smells can be absorbed by using -used- coffee grounds and leaving overnight. Google groups was one source the other was a repair listing forum.

No one at Delonghi will help, nor will Argos where product was bought. I just want to know if my microwave is safe (bought in May 2006) - the inside of the door (looks like a plastic covering) is bubbling...


There is a fine metal mesh / screen inside the door assembly.

If any of the holes in that screen are damaged or enlarged, then leakage is possible.

If the bubbling / deformity in the door keeps it from shutting fully and flatly, then leakage is possible.

If the bubbling / deformity in the door allows moisture to collect on or near the screen, it may lead to rust, which can damage the screen and lead to leakage.

Please feel free to contact me directly (especially if you include a few photos of the door) if you need more help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Peeling paint


Here is a link to buy the paint.
If the microwave is not creating a spark inside when in use, It's OK to use.
