The floor 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.

I would then leave the door open to let it dry untouched overnight.

You didn't mention your oven's brand or model, but it may be that the wheels on the turntable support are worn or there may grease built up in the axles.

Or you may need a new turntable support.

If you need to order a new one, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help point you to the proper distributor.

Paint inside microwave is chipped and blistered. How do you fix it?


HI,
If you are able to spent money for a new Microwave then go for a new one.
If you are interested to repair and reuse the existing Microwave then keep on thing in mind, if you paint it then also it will not lasts for a long time as the metal underneath is rusted.

My oven sparks from the metal plate on the side.


Check to see if there is any rust or cracks in the coating that came from the factory. Some microwaves use metal underneath an epoxy type coating and if it is exposed, it can cause an arc from the microwave generator. If there are any defects in the surface, it can be sanded down and you can purchase a can of interior microwave paint and put a coat of paint over the defective area. Also look for any exposed metal in the area of the sparks, there should no metal exsposed anywhere, if it is, cover it with the paint. hope this helps.

I have LG MS-3444DPS Intellowave Microwave oven. Turntable has had intermittent high pitch squeal and also thumping noise as turn table turns. Turn table has also been very jerky since new. What is the fix...


If you were to take the turntable coaster out and wash it in hot washing up water paying attention to the wheel surfaces, I think that will fix your problem as I suspect the wheels are uneven with deposits stuck to at least one.
Hope this helps.

Sparks coming from underneath turntable.


check for black spot on support for turn table and floor of unit, sand them back to the metal serface and paint if cavity is not stainless steel, if turn table is not turning replace the motor as this could cause this issue as well.

Flash in oven


The flash is usually caused by metal either being placed inside of micro or the interior surface might have chipped enamel exposing the metal underneath. Make sure no metal materials are placed inside while using and that the interior surface is in good condition.

COATING ON INSIDE OF MICROWAVE HAS STARTED TO COME OFF, EXPOSING UNDERNEATH SURFACE, IS IT STILL SAFE TO USE AND EAT FOOD COOKED IN IT?


Nothing special in there. As long as the paint is not flaking into the food you are ok, Be aware that bare metal could begin to arc. There is special microwave paint available but it will not match and look bad unless you redo the entire interior.

Turntable wheel under glass tray broken


If the microwave comes with a roller ring to rotate the glass turntable then I would recommend that it needs to be used when the microwave is operating, as the turntable rotates the food so it can be heated evenly.

I would recommend checking with your local Panasonic repairer he may have access to a new roller or even a second hand one to tide you over.

Carosel quit working


There is a motor underneath the turntable. Very cheap to buy. Turn it upside down and start figuring how to get at the motor. I have seen microwave ovens where you have to bend out a piece that is a pre-stamped opening to get at the motor. Usually, it is just "take out screws" until you get enough sheet metal out of the way.
