Enamel under the glass turntable has flaked off

I have only used warm soap and water to clean surfaces and last month the paint flaked off under the turntable. It is completely rusted underneath. I'm wondering if this happened to anyone else and if so where was the microwave manufactued due to the lead paint issues in china?

This is due to spills, accumulated moisture from steam / condensation, or both.

It can also be worse if your internal cooling fan is not running, or if the vents or filters are blocked or clogged.

Since the the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and then dried thoroughly.


Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

Let it dry overnight with the microwave door open.

Once that's done, you should occasionally look for accumulated moisture on the floor of the oven and keep it dry.

The model number tag should tell you where it was made.

What's the best way to protect water based enamel paint? I painting a night stand for my daughter and I don't want it to scratch easily. Oil based enamel is more durable but its not an option.


try painting it over with a 2 pack clear epoxy paint
2 pack epoxy paint is about the hardest surface you can get and the clear finish will show the original paint color through
or paint it again using the color in epoxy 2 pack paint
Talk with a professional paint supply shop

Can I repaint a steel enamel finished sink? Has been scratched by clumsy wife!!


Yes you can. they make several products for this at the harware stores. You said enamel but are you refering to porcelain? To do the repair you will need porcelain repair compound and some high-gloss, alkyd-base paint that matches the color of the porcelain. if it is simply enamel then just match the color or repaint the whole sink using enamled paint. what you have to watch and worry about is if the repaired section will be contantly wet, if water gets under the paint it will bubble and flake off and make a mess. So the answer is yes but it may not be worth the trouble.

Paint in the GE micro oven is flaking off.


no problems,,, just paint it,, so long as you use normal paints without any metal in them any enamel paint will do,, but it will work fine as it is,, it realy dont need any paint on it,, its only there to make it look nice,,however if you do paint it you must let it dry out fully before you use it again or you may find it go's with a big "bang!" when the paint catches fire!!!!!!!!!

My microwave oven has are rust spots;can I paint over them?


Yes, you can paint over the spots and no, it's not dangerous. I'd let the paint thoroughly dry before using the oven -- it could otherwise cause paint to buckle/ripple/etc.

Microwave enamel wearing away


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.

Enamel should work, but appliance paint is better.

Microwave Oven Interior Paint


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.

Non-Stick surface peeling off inside microwave.


Normally you can strip and sand the old paint, get it squeaky clean, and use appliance paint. Yes indeed it is a heat-resistant enamel. You can get it from appliance parts stores, Wal-Mart, or home centers, etc. BUT if it's under warranty I would call GE Customer Relations with your model and serial numbers. They're at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET) and I would also suggest you ask them for a referral to a GE-authorized servide center in your area. Good luck. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of this answer.
