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

If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth.

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

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

If your waveguide cover / stirrer cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

In the future, I would advise wiping down the walls & ceiling anytime steam and moisture have accumulated in the oven, or at least leave the door open until it dries out.

Paint peeling


The paint you need is called microwave cavity paint. If they don't have it at your local hardware store, you may get it at www.appliance411.com/data.php?rc=277

Be sure to sand the area first with some emory cloth to remove any loose paint flakes.

Not heating properly


I have a GE over the range space saver microwave that was only 18 mos. old when it stopped heating. GE replaced the magnetron for us at no charge but since we did not have a service contract - they charged us $200 to install it. It only cost $375 new installed. Your choice.

My space saver microwave will not heat. When I turn it on it sounds like somthing is getting zapped. I cannot use it. Can you tell me what is wrong and how much it would cost to fix. Model #...


Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

In this model, it is a larger stirrer cover type made of thicker plastic in the ceiling of the oven.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

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.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.

While you have the cover off, look for grease buildup or charring on the metal and the stirrer (an antenna or blade-like device).

Peeling interior


.
This may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.

You can sand the peeled area, even the rusted area in most cases, clean them squeaky dry, and repaint with high-temperature appliance paint available from places liek Wal-Mart, home improvement centers, and appliance parts stores.

No need to replace the microwave if you can clean and paint it properly.
