Question about Emerson MW8102SS 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
Older model. When wiping clean inside top of microwave, some of the paint flaked off exposing metal. Can oven still be used?
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.

Yes, but if this is not fixed, it may flake off and get in your food, or allow grease or food particles to build up on the surface.
The loose paint should really be sanded off, at least.
Then when it's clean and dry, you can apply a little high-temperature appliance paint, available from department stores, home improvement centers, and appliance parts stores.
