Question about GE JE1640 Microwave Oven
This is due to grease or food particles stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.
It can be fragile, and 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 metal of the cavity or waveguide is charred or chipped, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.
Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Home Depot.
If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.
