One way is to separate the door panels, bang out the dent from the other side, then burnish the area.

Otherwise, you can replace the damaged piece. You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here.

If she's really the forgiving type, maybe she'd settle for your placing over the dent a little magnet or sticker that says, "I love my wife"? *GRIN!*

Discovered dent on back of the microwave just purchased. It is on the edge of the part which protrudes on the back. Will this cause problems in the future, the microwave seems to work okay now.


No will produce any problem, BUT you must obligated to call the company or stores where did you buy the microwaves. You must keep your right to protect the consumer. Do it.
God bless you

I have a small dent in my stainless steel refrigerator. I've tried a plunger and the blow dryer and dry ice trick any other ideas?


Because it is stainless steel it is not likely that it will come out the compressed air and blow dryer are you best bet but it is unlikely that it will come out

First of all, is the hole a factory one that you never noticed before? If so, leave it alone. I know that microwaves generate a lot interior heat and it needs to escape someway. Secondly, if it is not a factory made vent hole and you can't be sure if it caused from a lot of use, and if the oven still works fine, I would not worry about it if it were me.

If the door seal is damaged or out of alignment, there is a chance of leakage, which can cause burns, damage to the oven or even a fire hazard.

The door on my Whirlpool 1200 watt microwave has some paint missing on the inside of the door. It's just below the door window. I think my wife had a small fire a year or so ago and she is concerned about...


If the 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.

Otherwise, you may get rust and/or arcing.

Should the door creaks


I'd say you're right that the damage is causing the problem when the material expands.

This will eventually wear away the material and could lead to other problems unless you lubricate the tight spot regularly.

As much trouble as it is, I think returning it will mean less trouble than you may face otherwise.
