Question about LG Microwave Ovens
This is the waveguide cover, and it's actually made of plastic or mica.
It is very important - it protects the magnetron and waveguide from grease and food particles, which - if allowed to build up - can cause arcing and damage.
The metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!
The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.
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.
If your waveguide cover is burned or damaged, it will need to be replaced.
