The area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

If the metal is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth.

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

Door won't stay shut, microwave will not start

Contact the maker or Google the model number for "parts"

That part likely will require the unit to be taken apart to replace it.

Purchased the Maytag MMV3180 (SS) microwave last week. It doesn't matter what I cook, when cooking is finished there is moisture inside the oven. The door is steamed up, and water is dripping off the...

I would say quite normal. Ensure that the door is left open for a while when you have finished, that will allow the moisture to disperse.
I cut down alot on the steam by using kitchen paper towel over the food. The towel gets wet instead!
Don't use recycled paper towel unless it states suitable for microwave use as there may be plastics and metals in those.

I have rust on the door. The unit is 13 years old. Does it make sense to sand and paint the door, replace the door, or replace the unit. If sand and paint, what type of primer and finish paint. If...

lots of questions that may be too difficult to help make a decion.

1) Depends on the degree of rust and whether it is inside or outside.
Outside is easier to deal with. Inside it would be subject to heat burning and odour as most are baked enamel finishes and are not paint at all, but a ceramic compund.
Outside can be rust removed which creates its own undercoat as it dries using the rust particles in an altered chemical state. An enamel paint is preferred or even a ceramic based compund.

replacingt the whole door may involve dollars to $100 unless you can find a second hand market for spares.

Frankly, because Microwaves have become so cheap now ( even secoid hand ones) you can pick them up from $50 to 200 depending on size and wattage. i would consider that it has had its time and replace the whole unit. After 13 years of service its time to retire it and move up. Newer ones are more power efficient and better sealed against radiation leaks than the older ones

The inside finish on the oven door is coming off--is this harmful?

its not harmful at all,,,it just dont look to nice,, the microwave will still work fine as any microwaves will just bounce off the inside of the door and be reflected back inside the oven just as they do on all the other sides of the oven,,, after all the door is only coverd in paint,, and that dont stop microwaves so dont worry about it,, all the paint has come off the inside of my microwave door,,, and its been working like this for years now

Can a microwave door be painted on the inside as paint is flaking off. I would like to resurface the inside or the door

No, you can't do that. It would make chemicals from the paint saturate your food. You do not want that.

Painted finish coming off inside of jenn air microwave

You will have to look at the hole picture to see if it cost feasible to have this repaired under warranty.
If this is tripping a breaker you should not use it. But for the most part it would be better to look at getting a new one.Sorry there is no easy way to take care of this, so I hope its under warranty and they replace it for you.
