NO! This is baked enamelo finish and any paint you put on it will burn off or catch fire. Buy a new door panel
or get a new microwave from Cash Converters or whatever secondhand or Pawnshop as these units are so cheap now that one can be picked up for about $50

SOURCE: whirlpool gold GT4175SPS-2 inside door paint is

Hi,

Scratches, flaking 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 first.

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.

Paint is peeling inside the top of the microwave. Does this affect the safety or efficacy of the microwave. Can I repaint it? If so, with what?


Yes you can repaint it. Use an epoxy based paint and clean the metalwork with sand paper first.
The only health question is if you get the flaking paint in your food - yuk!

Paint in the GE micro oven is flaking off.


no problems,,, just paint it,, so long as you use normal paints without any metal in them any enamel paint will do,, but it will work fine as it is,, it realy dont need any paint on it,, its only there to make it look nice,,however if you do paint it you must let it dry out fully before you use it again or you may find it go's with a big "bang!" when the paint catches fire!!!!!!!!!

Can a microwave door be painted on the inside as paint is flaking off. I would like to resurface the inside or the door


No, you can't do that. It would make chemicals from the paint saturate your food. You do not want that.

Gas bbq grill paint is flaking off


My recommendation is to Reolace the grates w/stainless steel. The paint used on bbq grills is no really a paint. It's more like a very thin powder coating. There are high temp paints available, but the pigment is questionable for food proceeses.

Enamel under the glass turntable has flaked off


This is due to spills, accumulated moisture from steam / condensation, or both.

It can also be worse if your internal cooling fan is not running, or if the vents or filters are blocked or clogged.

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


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

Let it dry overnight with the microwave door open.

Once that's done, you should occasionally look for accumulated moisture on the floor of the oven and keep it dry.

The model number tag should tell you where it was made.

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.
