    The crack is all the way through the floor of the microwave from the front left corner to the rear right corner. If you push on the floor at all it moves down.

It depends on how bad the crack is.

Generally, it will have to be sanded and repainted with high temperature paint, but it depends on the depth, etc.

Why is the inside painting cracking & rust is oosing out?

Hello Miriam;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The reason your micro wave liner is cracking is the way you place the food in the microwave.

The rust is coming from the steel frame where the liner is cracked.

A small crack is probably ok if you had a lot of leakage you will feel a tingle sensation in your hand if you are really worried take a small piece of foil and cover the crack that will prevent any radition from leaking, I used to repair microwave ovens and I know with the current models it is not possable for much to escape, unless there is a large hole I once serviced a commerial microwave that was used with most of the front glass missing, the user reported some tingling in his hand.

Panasonic steam convection microwave ceramic floor cracked and a hole melted into the ceramic field.

This was probably a manufacture defect right from the begining which would explain what happened. My guess there was a very small crack and quickly developed into serious problem.

My friend was going to wax her legs and was warming the wax up in the microwave when it bubbled over and made the wax bowl stick. Pulling to get it out she spilt it everywhere , in microwave , on my...

since it is a sticky wax and not paraffin or candle wax do not reheat it to remove it. Get an ice pack or stick some ice cubes in a ziplock bag and rub on the wax until it freezes/gets cold enough to crack. It should come off of all of those surfaces pretty easily once it has been cooled enough not to be sticky.

How to change microwave bulb

Remove the two screws that holds grill. They are located at the edge of the unit. Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. It will pop right out.

Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. The grill should pop right out.
Locate a small access cavity on the left.
Remove the screw that is located near the front of the microwave door.
Lift up the sheet metal floor to access the bulb. The bulb is located under the sheet metal "floor" on the left.
Place a flash light on the microwave floor and shine the light in the light area. This will help you see better when you replace your bulb.
Look for a small shiny reflector that hides the bulb. Use your two fingers to squeeze it a bit. Making sure not to bend it.
The bulb connection should come right out.
After you replaced the bulb, re secure the reflector and the sheet metal floor with the single screw. Test the bulb by plugging in your microwave.
Once you see that the bulb works. Unplug your microwave again and re attach the front grill. You are now done.
Hope this help in solving the problem, take care.....

Front Plastic door is cracked and needs replacement.

Do not use a microwave with a cracked door as it could be emitting dangerous microwaves.

Sadly the cost of replacing the door would be more that the cost of a new microwave. Look for a good sale and treat yourself.
