Question about Microwave Ovens
We have small holes burned into the liner finish all around the metal rack. In looking at the metal rack, it has burn marks as well. Is the microwave safe to use and how can fix this problem? I had a repair man come in and he wanted to paint over the burn area and sell me a new rack. Is this a common problem with Maytag?
It seems to be a problem with many microwave ovens that support the metal rack. Microwaves are not perfect for the metal rack and often causes pitting in the metal where it gets too hot. You can get the racks redone but looking for a new one may be cheaper. Some racks have a better coating on them.

Its common to all ovens! causes are food spills and oil spills left uncleaned! painting only might fix the problem for a while, but it won't give you a lasting service!!
! you should buy a new rack for much safer use!
keep in mind also to clean the oven after every use! (let it cool first of course!)
