Question about Panasonic NN-T990SA Microwave Oven
I own a Emerson MWG9111SL Microwave. I've had it 6 mo. The paint has come off under the turntable and now it is rusting. I cannot keep moisture down in the oven. It is always damp. It doesn't have to be used much to get that way. Could the browning element be part of the problem.
I'm afraid that it is not safe anymore. I have a Panasonic that is chipping and rusting. It is about 8 years old. Should I replace it or try the paint? Is chipping and rusting common in microwaves? If so, why?
Moisture accumulation can sometimes be caused if the cooling fan is not running properly or if the vents in the back are blocked or there is not enough free space around the sides and back of the microwave.
One thing that helps is to keep the door open a few minutes after using it and to wipe down the inside after use.
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.
