Paint peeling inside microwave

Can you tell me please is it dangerous to carry on using my microwave if the paint has bubbled and cracked, and is now peeling off?

    I noticed the breaker popped while heating soup for 5 minutes. After resetting the breaker everything seemed to work ok. I removed the soup and noticed the paint in the bottom of the oven had bubbled up and there was water beneath the paint. I have always been very careful of keeping it clean and wiping up all spills and condensation inside the oven. I have looked for any recalls but have had no luck. I have been looking for the receipt but have not located it yet, but it was purchased within the last year from Walmart, I believe. Can you help, please?

If the unit has been operating properly for some time with no issues, I would say it is fine to continue to use. The issue I would have would be with the possibility with the paint falling into the food.

It would be interesting for you to call the manufacturers' support line and ask why this is happening. Maybe they will offer you a replacement if it was a manufacturing process defect. Mention that the paint may have fallen into the food.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Yes it is a certain danger, DO NOT USE your microwave until this has been repaired. You should be able to get specialist paint and kit from your local hardware store. Here's a handy kit I found online:

Paint is peeling off how can I fix it and do you know if its dangerous


I wouldn't advise trying to fix it and it's not dangerous. When heating food it causes condensation on the inside of the oven which pools at the bottom and causes rust and paint peel.

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 paint is peeling inside the microwave, is this dangerous?


Yes it is! if this goes unchecked the magnetron will arc where bare metal is exposed and eventually it will short out destroying a very expensive part.

Paint inside microwave oven bottom is peeling


The oven cavity will probably start to rust where the paint is gone. If you're up to it, sand it and paint it with a color that matches the interior color. Other then colors, there is nothing special about paint inside a microwave.

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.

Inside finish is peeling off


No, 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.

Otherwise, you can have rust and arcing, which can be messy.

Here is a link to buy the paint.
If the microwave is not creating a spark inside when in use, It's OK to use.

Peeling paint


The only real danger is if it continues, it can deteriorate the metal, allowing sparking and possible leakage.

It's a good idea to clean, sand, clean again and repaint the area.

High temperature appliance paint is available form stores like Lowe's and Wal-Mart.
