    JES1136 purchased 3-06. June 2008 noticed well under turntable is now bubbling in front section of the well. Since this is past the one-year warranty doubt we have recourse with GE. I do not recommend purchase of this portable unit.

Yes. If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Otherwise, arcing and deterioration can occur.

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

The inside of the microwave is peeling what if anything to do and why


It can sometimes be caused by moist air from cooking food and not having the door left open to dry or just faulty paint work.
There is paint available on the market to repair the damaged paint. It will give you a bit more use out of it.

Sparks coming from underneath turntable.


check for black spot on support for turn table and floor of unit, sand them back to the metal serface and paint if cavity is not stainless steel, if turn table is not turning replace the motor as this could cause this issue as well.

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.

Paint damaged in side microwave oven


1) How is the cavity damaged? Is it just peeling paint, or is it rust? If it's rust then the microwave could be dangerous.

2) The antenna cap usually has a small hole in the centre, but if there are any other holes in it the magnetron itself could be damaged, and holes caused by the magnetrin arcing.

Peeling paint


You need to thoroughly clean it, then sand it smooth to removew all the loose paint.

Once it's squeaky clean and dry, you can apply high-temperature appliance paint, which is available in brush-on or spray-on form at big box stores like Wal-Mart, home improvement centers like Lowe's and appliance parts stores.

Non-Stick surface peeling off inside microwave.


Normally you can strip and sand the old paint, get it squeaky clean, and use appliance paint. Yes indeed it is a heat-resistant enamel. You can get it from appliance parts stores, Wal-Mart, or home centers, etc. BUT if it's under warranty I would call GE Customer Relations with your model and serial numbers. They're at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET) and I would also suggest you ask them for a referral to a GE-authorized servide center in your area. Good luck. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of this answer.
