SOURCE: Rust inside the microwave.

The areas can be sanded and painted, but first make sure there are no holes rusted through. If it's all surface rust, then sand and clean as best as you can. If you have any areas rusted through - get rid of the microwave.
Use the paint sparingly - don't try to cover in one or two coats. Best results are obtained with very, very light coats drying 10 minutes or so (depending on the humidity) in between. 10- 15 coats usually works well.
It's best to do this outside, as you'll have lots of overspray.

As far as the paint - the best I've used for the last 20 years or so comes from A.M.I. Parts. You can find them @ www.amiparts.com or toll free 1-800-522-1264.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: rust under turntable of microwave can i paint it?

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.

SOURCE: the bottom of my microwave

Probably, as long as it's not rusted all the way through.

You need to sand it to bare metal, then it will take paint.

I'd leave the door open and let it dry overnight.

My microwave inside bottom paint is peeling off. I would like to know if there is special paint that cam be use safely to fix it. PD. It is not a matter of buying a new one. Is the challenge of fixing...


You can only use appliance paint which can be bought from the local home improvement store.

The exact instructions will vary from brand to brand and type of paint application used but you can follow these general steps:

  1. Clean the appliance thoroughly with soap and water and leave to dry.
  2. Apply a treatment on rust spots to prevent the rust from spreading or showing up through the new paint.
  3. Unplug and move the appliance to a well-ventilated area or create good air circulation in the painting area.
  4. Remove or protect areas (such as handles and other decorative details) on the appliance that should not be painted.
  5. Paint the appliance according to the product instructions.
  6. Let dry thoroughly before moving.
  7. Apply a second coat if necessary.

Chipping/peeling rusting paint in interior under carousel


Hi,

Scratches and bare spots are fairly common, but should be addressed as soon as they arise so the corrosion will not spread and arcing does not occur.

Unplug the power cord and remove the turntable and the support that is under the turntable. Clean the surface of the support wheels or any other part that rubs on the oven cavity.

Take some mild sanding cloth or scotchbright and clean the bare and rusted areas in the microwave. Use appliance touch up paint to re-coat the surface. You can find the touch up at most anywhere that sells appliances, it comes in a plastic bottle similar in appearance to fingernail polish, yes it does have a brush inside.

Let it dry per the instructions on the bottle or 24 hours if not specified.

Enamel should work, but appliance paint is better.

Peeling interior


.
This may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.

You can sand the peeled area, even the rusted area in most cases, clean them squeaky dry, and repaint with high-temperature appliance paint available from places liek Wal-Mart, home improvement centers, and appliance parts stores.

No need to replace the microwave if you can clean and paint it properly.
