Speaking an a retired Samsung Main Repairs Agent, it is not covered by warranty, as the paint peels if left wet after cooking/steaming etc.
If you get into the habit of leaving the door open until it cools down each time, it would have given you good service.

SOURCE: samsung otr microwave vent quit working

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Waveguide Cover

If the microwave is sparking or arcing the waveguide cover might be damaged and shorting out. Try removing the waveguide cover and see if the problem goes away. If there are any damaged spots in the microwave ceiling or sidewalls, repair them and paint them with microwave oven paint. Replace the waveguide cover if it is burnt or if it will not stay in place.

Microwave Oven Paint

If the microwave is sparking or arcing on the side walls the paint might have chipped causing pitting in the metal oven wall. Use microwave safe paint to touch up any bare metal spots.





Rack Support

If the microwave is sparking or arcing near one of the rack supports, remove the support, repaint any bare metal, install a new support.

When I use my microwave, it seems it was spark happening when I use it. I'm afraid to test it again. Please tell me how I should know it's safe to use


2 things cause sparks.... a damaged Waveguide RF window or bare metal inside the cooking area. If you note bare metal you can sand and paint it with an appliance enamel paint. (no lead paint!) Just make sure to only sand the area your painting as any sanding scuffs not painted will hasten a repeat performance of the sparking routine. The RF will bounce off bare metal and cause the sparking. Once PROPERLY painted it no longer sparks.

If it is coming from the area of the Waveguide RF window... Make sure the window is replaced before next use.

My oven sparks from the metal plate on the side.


Check to see if there is any rust or cracks in the coating that came from the factory. Some microwaves use metal underneath an epoxy type coating and if it is exposed, it can cause an arc from the microwave generator. If there are any defects in the surface, it can be sanded down and you can purchase a can of interior microwave paint and put a coat of paint over the defective area. Also look for any exposed metal in the area of the sparks, there should no metal exsposed anywhere, if it is, cover it with the paint. hope this helps.

I have a sansung microwave. Is it harmful to use if inside the top of the micro is peeling paint. Use alot for heating water for tea. Please advise Thank you


The paint plays no role in protecting you from the microwaves. The metal case is what contains the radiation, so you should be just fine.

Was cleaning inside of microwave and noticed the paint was bubbled and when I cleaned this area, all paint came off and metal was exposed 9about a 2 inch area). Should I use the microwave or will arching...


Hi Bonnie,

Do not use the microwave with the exposed metal surface.

What you can do is pick up some appliance touch up paint, it comes in a small plastic bottle with a brush. It looks similar to fingernail polish. It should be available at an appliance store such as Sears, Lowes, Home Depot etc.

Clean the area good and use sandpaper or steel wool if needed to make sure the area is smooth and clean. Then use the touch up paint to recoat the surface. Let dry before using the microwave oven, usually a couple hours or so.

Enamel under the glass turntable has flaked off


This is due to spills, accumulated moisture from steam / condensation, or both.

It can also be worse if your internal cooling fan is not running, or if the vents or filters are blocked or clogged.

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


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

Let it dry overnight with the microwave door open.

Once that's done, you should occasionally look for accumulated moisture on the floor of the oven and keep it dry.

The model number tag should tell you where it was made.

Paint off inside top of microwave exposing metal. Safe to use?


It would be dangerous to do so. Any exposed metal inside a microwave is source for sparks and is extremely hazardous. I would recommend getting the paint job done up, or even better, buy a newer model.

PEELING PAINT INSIDE MICROWAVE/TOASTER OVEN


I do have the same problem, but I know they make microwave paint if you can get it from an appliance store or you can order through the web - BUT 2 sites I just looked at said a gloss enamel paint, such as that used to paint "model" toys works just as well. In either case: Smooth the old stuff off, sand lightly (you want no metal dust left -or- damaging any coating on the metal) just sand enough to make sure there's no flakes & it's smooth, then use a gloss enamel paint rather it's approved for microwaves or the Testor's kind.
NEXT -Make sure you DRY with Hairdryer to set the paint, and keep the heat to med or low, don't bubble or scorch your work!) and do not use the microwave for 24 hours!! Leave the door open while drying for several days afterwards if you can. Any fume smells can be absorbed by using -used- coffee grounds and leaving overnight. Google groups was one source the other was a repair listing forum.
