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.
It's safe to run in the very short term, but if you run it too long without fixing the blemish, it may arc and char more.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Yes, you can paint over the spots and no, it's not dangerous. I'd let the paint thoroughly dry before using the oven -- it could otherwise cause paint to buckle/ripple/etc.

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.

Testimonial: "Many thanks for such a quick reply and solution. Bonnie"
SOURCE: oven and microwave combo
Your microwave is plugged into an outlet built into the top of the oven. This outlet has a "circuit breaker" that trips when using the self cleaning feature. This is a design flaw that Jenn-Air/Whirlpool refuses to acknowledge.
You just need to reset the breaker button that the microwave is plugged into. It's right next to the outlet.
Of course, getting to the reset button is your only challenge. You need to pull the microwave and oven out of the wall/cabinetry in order to get to it. The unit is heavy so you will need help. Or, call a certified repairman and they should be able to do this for you in 30 minutes or less so the service call should not run you more than @$85 if it is no longer under warranty.
I would also suggest you contact Jenn-Air to complain about this issue and seek reimbursement from them if necessary.

It is my understanding that you can't get parts for a Welbilt Microwave anymore. The good news is that you can make one work from another m/w. Take your shield to a local appliance parts dealer and find a shield a little larger than yours. You should be able to cut it to fit your oven using the old one for a pattern. The rivets shouldn't be a problem as Whirlpool, GE, and Maytag all use similar plastic rivets to secure the shields.
Hope this helps.
