If you have a cartoon on, looks pretty close to normal. If anything else, it looks like an oil painting or cartoon. Someone told me it might be the convergence amplifiers, if so, how much is that going to run me. Any advice on what the problem is.

Re: My picture looks like an oil painting or cartoon
If you lose your video or weaken the video driver you just might be looking at straight color that looks funny like you described... but looking at this picture ... I see the flash from the camera and and lots of video (the black and white) but it does look dark over-all... which I would first try to reset my screen control that is located on the bottom of the flyblack.
the convergence looks fine.

Apart from trying to get a dealer colour code, Here's what I would do.
1) Take a picture in bright sunlight.
2) Download the picture to my computer.
3) Print the picture on my Canon printer.
4) Take the picture outside and compare to the car (on a sunny day)
5) Take the picture to my local Canadian Tire or Lordco or Napa store, and match to the "rattle can" paint selection.
I assume you want to paint it. Preparation is the key. Rustoleum has some pretty good products that look close to stainless steal. Clean the outside thoroughly. The paint will only stick well to metal surfaces. Plastics will tend to crack and peel. Tape and paper off all the parts of microwave not being painted. You will not want to get paint on labels, keypad, plastics or the door seal. Paint takes and hour to dry between coats. Practice with long strokes on something else first. Several thin coats is better than one thick one. Fumes can be strong. Outdoors without wind or a garage will be the best area to paint. Paint is oil based and you will need paint thinner( or WD-40 in a pinch ) for cleanup. I don't think painting would be wise inside the microwave. I painted my range hood, and I swear it looks like its stainless steel. I used the brushed nickel color. Good luck.
Ok, sounds like you are having water vapor condense in your crankcase, must be pretty humid where you are. 1- Make sure the crankcase has a vent on it somewhere. 2- Be sure you are running the compressor long enough to get the oil hot enough to evaporate any water that does get in there. If the compressor is over sized and just runs a few times a day it may not run long enough to flash off the water that does collect. 3- That unit looks pretty big if you sized it to spray paint with it may be way too big for your normal shop use (see 2 above).
The oil could be from a slow leak on the refrigerant lines which of course is a Freon leak. Where are you seeing the oil exactly pictures would help. Schrader valve's could be the issue if close to that area.
Paint flaking of is cosmetic only,,,If you want to take the time too paint it,,youll need to clean the erea,,make shure there are no oils or other dirt on the motor,,If it needs to be sanded to smooth the surface so you dont have a dip in the paint then use 600grit,,,,re-clean the surface again,,,Use 500F engine enamel,,,Dont just do a little spot though as you really want too match your paint surfaces.
I have painted many Microwave oven cavities. You have to sand down the pealed off rusted areas and completely clean and degrease. Before painting, I use laquer thinner as a cleaner degreaser. Fumes can be a bit strong but it has worked well of me. I normally buy an automotive spray paint. They have a lot of different colors and a lot of the import colors can really come close to the color inside the microwave. Spray on thin layers till you get good coverage and make sure you let it dry thoroughly before trying to use. The paint in a Microwave isi not a special microwave energy protective paint. it is only there to make it look pretty and protect the metal. So a good automotive paint normally works fine.
It's a regular 12mm bolt (it doesn't look like a "plug") protruding horizontally from the back corner of the oil pan (aluminum pan with a waffle pattern, pretty much centered just in front of the front axle).
