My husband cooked corn-on-the-cob in our (Welbilt brand) microwave last night. I wiped down the inside afterwards, and some of the paint came off. I didn't use detergent of any kind - just warm water and a paper towel. Is the microwave still safe to use?

If the wall of the cavity is not rusted too badly, you can sand it down to metal and touch it up with catalytic paint made specifically for microwave oven cavities. You should be able to get this paint at any appliance parts house. After this repair, be sure to wipe down the inside of the cavity to get the condensation cleared out after you cook in it. I usually leave the door open for an hour or so to be sure that it dries out completely.
yes, just don't let anything get hooked onto the part that spins. Possibly put something else in the microwave to hold whatever you are cooking above it like miniature stilts. The microwave should be fine.
Your microwave has a Humidity Sensor and is designed to shut down when too much humidity collects in the microwave. It will start again once humidity level has decreased. Wipe down the inside of your microwave often. If there is already moisture in the unit before you cook pop corn, you're just adding more humidity to it. If this continues to be a problem, I would contact the manufacturer for resolve. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange
If the mocrowave still working, I wouldn't worry about operating it. If you want to have some peace of mind you can buy the paint and do it yourself. Go HERE to get the paint that is specially for microwaves use.
