SOURCE: peeling paint

You need to thoroughly clean it, then sand it smooth to removew all the loose paint.

Once it's squeaky clean and dry, you can apply high-temperature appliance paint, which is available in brush-on or spray-on form at big box stores like Wal-Mart, home improvement centers like Lowe's and appliance parts stores.

SOURCE: inside finish is peeling off

No, 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.

Otherwise, you can have rust and arcing, which can be messy.

SOURCE: PEELING PAINT INSIDE MICROWAVE/TOASTER OVEN

I do have the same problem, but I know they make microwave paint if you can get it from an appliance store or you can order through the web - BUT 2 sites I just looked at said a gloss enamel paint, such as that used to paint "model" toys works just as well. In either case: Smooth the old stuff off, sand lightly (you want no metal dust left -or- damaging any coating on the metal) just sand enough to make sure there's no flakes & it's smooth, then use a gloss enamel paint rather it's approved for microwaves or the Testor's kind.
NEXT -Make sure you DRY with Hairdryer to set the paint, and keep the heat to med or low, don't bubble or scorch your work!) and do not use the microwave for 24 hours!! Leave the door open while drying for several days afterwards if you can. Any fume smells can be absorbed by using -used- coffee grounds and leaving overnight. Google groups was one source the other was a repair listing forum.

SOURCE: The paint in the cavity of my 6 year old microwave

Sand off the loose paint and make sure that there are no holes in the cavity. If there's holes the unit is not safe to use.

If it's just surface flaking, it should be safe to sand back with fine grade wet/dry sandpaper. We usually respray with automotive paint in a colour close to the cavity colour.

Yes it is a certain danger, DO NOT USE your microwave until this has been repaired. You should be able to get specialist paint and kit from your local hardware store. Here's a handy kit I found online:

Inside of microwave top peeling and blistering


If it's paint peeling, then once that paint is gone, rust will set in, which can cause arcing and disintegration of the chassis, when ruins the oven.

This peeling is usually the result of excess moisture accumulating in the oven due to blocked air vents or poor fan circulation.

Once those two issues have been ruled out or dealt with, then always be sure to dry out or leave the microwave open after use.

The peeling paint will need to be removed, then the area should be sanded.

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

I Bought An Old Kenmore Space Saver Microwave. It Doesnt Have A Manual. I Dont Know If It Can Go Over Top Of Electric Range Stove. I Dont know How To Install It. So What Im Asking Is How Can I Tell If It...


One quick way would be to look on the top of the unit. Do you see empty screw holes where the screws going through the cabinet above it will go through and screw into the top of that unit? If no open screw holes on top of unit probably not an over the range model. Also, look under the bottom of the machine. do you see feet??? Or just aluminum screen vent filters. If feet and no filters probably a counter top unit.

Paint inside microwave oven bottom is peeling


The oven cavity will probably start to rust where the paint is gone. If you're up to it, sand it and paint it with a color that matches the interior color. Other then colors, there is nothing special about paint inside a microwave.

Kenmore microwave inside chipping, is this a


Only your microwave's health. *grin* Seriously, it can begin arcing and damage the oven, possibly ruining it.

You'll need to strip the old paint away, sand the area smooth, then clean and dry it thoroughly.

Then you can apply high temperature appliance paint available at hardware stores, home centers, and places like Wal-Mart.

After that, be sure to avoid spills and wipe out the oven any time there is heavy steam.

The paint has started to peel off inside my microwave!


NO. The insides are baked on powder coat. If you paint it, you might as well throw it away. The paint can catch fire, even after it is dry.

Model Number JE2160SF03 Serial Number: DL 901299M Our microwave oven's floor is peeling off horridly. We can see the metal beneath the white surface. We have lived here for two years, and it was a brand...


This is usually due to spills, inadequate ventilation, or cooking on the stove top without having the hood / vent fan on.

It really should be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.
