Is this by chance a Samsung Microwave?? I just answered a similar question with a picture right before this. In the other post, it looked like the Micro was either painted while it was already rusted or it is rusting from the inside out into the cavity where you cook food. In either case, regardless of age, I would contact the manufacturer and explain to them that this could be a factory defect. Safety issue would be possible paint/rust flakes in uncovered food. If manufacturer puts you off, contact Better Business Bureau.

My Microwave got bubbles on the top ( ceiling). Is it still safe to use it or better to get a new one..( this one must be around or over 10 years old..) Need an answer asap please..

Hello, Elke -

By "bubbles on the top (ceiling)" of your microwave, do you mean it seems that the paint / interior coating is bubbling and may eventually peal off? If so . . .

Read the information here:

The well-respected U.S. magazine, Conusmer Reports, which evaluates the quality of a variety of consumer items, states microwave ovens have an average life expectancy of 9 years. See:

Best wishes.

as i advised another questioner never buy a microwave with a painted interior as they will always to buy STAINLESS your paperwork and check your g/tee but if is it not in g/tee it is obviously not fit for purpose so take it back to the shop anyway.

The metal is showing inside. The white coating is pealing. Is this dangerous?

The peeling of the white coating inside of the microwave oven is dangerous in terms of creating a fire hazard and potentially contaminating the food you cook within it. This can be prevented by cleaning up all splatters and spills immediately before using the microwave oven again. You can fix the peeling by replacing the microwave oven or repairing it. To repair it, you will have to remove the peeling coating and then repaint the interior of the microwave with paint that is designed for microwaves in general. Though, if you do this, you will have to let the paint dry up for at least 24 hours. I hope this helps you!

The clear coating inside the glass door is crumbling. Dangerous?

It depends on how much the radiation is dissipated. Normally the grill on the door prevents and escape of radiation and so this cannot be a threat but a reading outside the door will be good to confirm and if so the door must be replaced.

A plastic container with hidden piece of metal caught fire in my Sharp r1490 and burned with a big flame. Several small holes were burned in the ceiling panel. Are we in danger of radiation exposure/ is...

The microwave oven is not safe to use, the fire has compromised the interior of the oven, if you run the microwave it will start to arc and eventually short out the magnetron, because the white enamel paint has been burned away. If you have holes in the ceiling there is danger of radiation leakage, for safety reasons the oven should be replaced.

Burnt ceiling

Well microwave probably was too close to the ceiling and it wasn't getting enough air through and it got hot then bam you have a hole in your ceiling... if your microwave is completely ruined then don't bother with it just get a new one but if it works try moving it farther away from the ceiling.. good luck =]]
