The protective film is usually covering the glass door. If it's not there and the glass is still in good shape, no problem... just install the microwave and you're in action!!

What is the protective film in the microwave that must be remove before use.


The owner's manual sometimes doesn't address the protective films that must be removed.

There is a protective film on inner door screens which must not be removed.

Your best bet is to call the manufacturer's help line.

In manual page EN-8 It says "Do not remove the light brown Mica cover that is attached to the oven cavity to protect the magnetron. What is a magnetron and what mica cover are they talking about


The Magnetron is the high-power device that produces the microwave energy that is directed into the microwave oven cavity by means of a waveguide, which is a metal boxlike duct that transmits the microwave energy from the magnetron to the oven cavity. The Mica cover is a microwave-transparent film that covers the open end of the waveguide where it enters the oven cavity. It is there to prevent dust, dirt, and other things from getting into the waveguide. If that happens, the waveguide can develop electrical arcing, which will destroy it and the magnetron.

How to get the protective film off of a stainless microwave


It just peels off. Since this presumably is a new oven, the film should be removable in large pieces

Blue film partly removed


The blue film is supposed to be removed. It is used only to protect the appliance from scratches during shipping. Some consumers mistakenly leave this film on thinking it will make the appliance last longer. Eventually, over years of use, the film becomes difficult to remove and may remove the finish if you try to peel it off. It is not required for the safe use of the microwave oven.

The film on the inside of the microwave oven door has bubbled & is raised off the glass. Is it safe to use.


No, that must be patched or replaced. It's critical.

The film protects the door screen from getting food, grease or moisture in it, which can lead to corrosion and arcing.

The screen prevents microwave energy leakage, which can cause arcing and fire.

If the bad spot is not too big, you can cut it away and clean it squeaky clean and patch it with clear packing tape.

If it's too bad to patch, you'll have to see if you can get new film, or if you need to order the inner door panel or whole door.
