Question about Kenmore 62222 / 62229 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Bottom is rusty in the roller groove

Paint in the roller depression was damaged on one side. It has become rusty and the rollers have carried the rust around the entire groove. I have purchased some "microwave paint" in a spray can. Is it possible to repair? Is is safe to continue using the microwave in this condition?

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly first.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint.

Microwave quit


Hi there,

Well first of all you can try to clean the turntable- Remove your glass turntable cooking tray from your microwave. Gently wash with warm soapy water to remove any debris. Next remove the turntable guide and clean it in the same manner, with warm soapy water. Pay particular attention to the turntable rollers. There could be spilled food particles caught in the rollers, hindering the rollers' movement. Also, gently cleanse the internal cavity of your microwave, paying special attention to the area below the turntable. With the internal cavity, turntable, and turntable guide completely clean and dry, return the parts to your microwave. First place the turntable guide on the bottom of the microwave. There should be a circular groove in the bottom of the microwave cavity keeping the turntable guide in place. Follow the guide with the turntable cooking tray. Carefully place the glass tray over the turntable guide and onto the drive bushing. The drive bushing should fit neatly into the grooves on the bottom of your glass cooking tray. It may take some adjusting before the tray will sit properly onto the drive bushing. If further you have the same problem then this could be a failing turntable motor...... Please post comments for further help or information.......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

The bottom of my microwave has gone rusty. Is it


You need to clean it, sand it shiny, then clean it squeaky again.

Then you can get high temperature appliance paint in spray or brush-on form from local appliance part stores or places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.

I would suggest you let it dry overnight with the door open before using the oven.

Bottom of door inside badly rusted - oven works fine


Yes you can paint it.. Begin by removing the rust with either a wire brush or a thick paste product called naval jelly. Then prime the area and finally paint it with appliance paint, abailable in a spray can at most hardware stores in the color of your appliance.

Paint damaged in side microwave oven


1) How is the cavity damaged? Is it just peeling paint, or is it rust? If it's rust then the microwave could be dangerous.

2) The antenna cap usually has a small hole in the centre, but if there are any other holes in it the magnetron itself could be damaged, and holes caused by the magnetrin arcing.

My microwave is rusting inside. mainly the area where the turning wheels meet the base. I have sand and painted with microwave paint but after a few weeks the paint area around the wheels is rusting again.


try the microwave touch-up paint again but this time clean the spots you sanded with rubbing alcohol. also make sure the rollers turn freely

LG microwave oven


As long as the waveguide itself isn't damaged, you should be able to replace the shield without issue... That shield only prevents food from splashing onto the waveguide itself and is not part of the microwave RF protection... Check your local hardware store for touch up paint.. shouldn't matter what brand as long as it contains rust inhibitors.. Good luck...

Paint has chipped off bottom of MW


Surely you should have a 12 month warranty with it, take it back to the shop and tell them it's going rusty, and that it's not fit for purpose. Read your consumer right's which are usually available on the internet, then quote it to them if they argue about it. They should either repair or replace the machine.
