SOURCE: Rust inside the microwave.

The areas can be sanded and painted, but first make sure there are no holes rusted through. If it's all surface rust, then sand and clean as best as you can. If you have any areas rusted through - get rid of the microwave.
Use the paint sparingly - don't try to cover in one or two coats. Best results are obtained with very, very light coats drying 10 minutes or so (depending on the humidity) in between. 10- 15 coats usually works well.
It's best to do this outside, as you'll have lots of overspray.

As far as the paint - the best I've used for the last 20 years or so comes from A.M.I. Parts. You can find them @ www.amiparts.com or toll free 1-800-522-1264.

SOURCE: my microwave oven has are rust spots;can I paint over them?

Yes, you can paint over the spots and no, it's not dangerous. I'd let the paint thoroughly dry before using the oven -- it could otherwise cause paint to buckle/ripple/etc.

This is just okay but if you're quite doubtful you may bring this to any appliance service center for repaint

SOURCE: rust under turntable of microwave can i paint it?

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.

SOURCE: my ge microwave is rusting under the turntable.

This is due to either liquid spills or steam buildup or both.

In rare cases, you may have bad air flow (blocked vent or clogged filter) or a weak internal cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan.

It's recommended to wipe off any moisture that accumulates inside, and leaving the door open a while after cooking may help, too.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels, etc.

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

Then you can get high temperature appliance paint in spray or brush-on form from local appliance part stores or places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.

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

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (such as charcoal filters, etc.) by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

You shouldn't need to remove the oven from the wall to take care of this problem.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

WaLL ge microWAVE RUSTED INSIDE


Frankly I'm surprised to hear that there is rust inside your microwave oven. Usually the inside is made with stainless steel and does not rust. Are you sure that it is rust? Could it be built up grime? If it is then use some Fantastic and wipe it away.

Good luck

Paint inside microwave is chipped and blistered. How do you fix it?


HI,
If you are able to spent money for a new Microwave then go for a new one.
If you are interested to repair and reuse the existing Microwave then keep on thing in mind, if you paint it then also it will not lasts for a long time as the metal underneath is rusted.

Microwave safety after repainting


Too generic...Did you use the high-temp appliance enamel recommended, or a spray...or worse?

Was the rust inside where it can contact food through the circulating air, or on the outer body?

First thought based on how I read the question: Never use that machine again...but that's based on the word "in" instead of "on my microwave".

If the rust was around the door frame, outside the seals, and you used an enamel (of course) then you may be OK...but...
Considering the fact that a cheap microwave is a drop in the bucket when compared to your family's health...Why risk it?

On the bottom of my microwave, the coating started "chipping" off and now there is a fairly large area that appears to be rusting and makes where the turntable wheels rest look really dirty. Is there...


This is often caused by spills and condensation.

The metal will have to be sanded smooth and clean.


You can use a wire brush and naval jelly to get rid of the rust.

If any rust remains, you can use Rust Reformer paint to stop the rust process, then sand it smooth when it's dry.

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

I have a Spacesaver Microwave (manufactured 1988) that still seems to work ok, but I noticed on teh back wall under the glass tray the coating has rusted away. Should I continue to use this microwave?


Hi,

As long as the oven's metal bottom is sound underneath the rust, there isn't a problem. The cooking chamber walls are so thick and highly conducting that they reflect the microwaves extremely well even when they have a little rust on them. However, if the metal is so rusted that it loses most of its conductivity in the rust sites, you'll get local heating across the rusty patches and eventually leakage of microwaves. If you're really concerned that there may be trouble, run the microwave oven empty for about 20 seconds and then (carefully!) touch the rusty spots. If they aren't hot, then the metal underneath is doing its job just fine.

Thanks.

Bottom of door inside badly rusted - oven works fine


Yes you can paint it.. Begin by removing the rust with either a wire brush or a thick paste product called naval jelly. Then prime the area and finally paint it with appliance paint, abailable in a spray can at most hardware stores in the color of your appliance.
