The area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

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.

Was working then made a raspi noise now nothing works

Sounds like you might have a problem with metal in the oven. Look inside the oven including the "ceiling" and see if the finish has worn off, leaving bare metal. If so, wash that area thoroughly, dry, sand lightly. Then apply some appliance paint that comes in tiny bottles and costs about $4.

The enamel is wearing off where the back side meets the base on the inside of the oven. No sparks are flying but is this repairable? Emerson MW8775W Microwave Oven

Small areas inside the cavity can be repaired. The bare spot must be very smooth. You can sand it down if needed and then repaint. There is a m/w cavity paint sold in a spray can, but I've had really good luck using regular appliance touchup paint. Just be sure the spot is very smooth when you finish. Use several thin layers of paint instead of one thick layer and you should be ok.

The inside finish on the oven door is coming off--is this harmful?

its not harmful at all,,,it just dont look to nice,, the microwave will still work fine as any microwaves will just bounce off the inside of the door and be reflected back inside the oven just as they do on all the other sides of the oven,,, after all the door is only coverd in paint,, and that dont stop microwaves so dont worry about it,, all the paint has come off the inside of my microwave door,,, and its been working like this for years now

Painted finish coming off inside of jenn air microwave

You will have to look at the hole picture to see if it cost feasible to have this repaired under warranty.
If this is tripping a breaker you should not use it. But for the most part it would be better to look at getting a new one.Sorry there is no easy way to take care of this, so I hope its under warranty and they replace it for you.

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.
