Peeling interior The paint (?) on the inside ceiling of my microwave is peeling. Does this mean the unit is unsafe and/or not working correctly?

    This is what I thought, but wanted to be sure. It also has lots of rust on the inside of the door, on the ledge under the glass window from condensation, so I guess it's time to get a replacement. Thanks!

This may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.

You can sand the peeled area, even the rusted area in most cases, clean them squeaky dry, and repaint with high-temperature appliance paint available from places liek Wal-Mart, home improvement centers, and appliance parts stores.

No need to replace the microwave if you can clean and paint it properly.

Goldstar MA 1012 W model seems to be stuck in the defrost mode. I press the cancel and think it is off and a few seconds later the microwave turns on by it self. I have to unplug it between uses,

The problem you may have is arcing (sparks) inside while cooking.  If you see this then it's time to replace the microwave.  It will depend what material is under the paint.  Just keep an eye on it while cooking and if you don't see any sparks then it should be ok.

Inside of microwave top peeling and blistering


If it's paint peeling, then once that paint is gone, rust will set in, which can cause arcing and disintegration of the chassis, when ruins the oven.

This peeling is usually the result of excess moisture accumulating in the oven due to blocked air vents or poor fan circulation.

Once those two issues have been ruled out or dealt with, then always be sure to dry out or leave the microwave open after use.

The peeling paint will need to be removed, then the area should be sanded.

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

Paint inside microwave oven bottom is peeling


The oven cavity will probably start to rust where the paint is gone. If you're up to it, sand it and paint it with a color that matches the interior color. Other then colors, there is nothing special about paint inside a microwave.

The paint has started to peel off inside my microwave!


NO. The insides are baked on powder coat. If you paint it, you might as well throw it away. The paint can catch fire, even after it is dry.

It`s not you that`s caused the problem, it`s the condensation from the cooking which gets under the paint, It`s worth investing in a stainless steel lined oven. Ian

Inside finish is peeling off


No, 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.

Otherwise, you can have rust and arcing, which can be messy.

Paint peeling inside microwave


If the unit has been operating properly for some time with no issues, I would say it is fine to continue to use. The issue I would have would be with the possibility with the paint falling into the food.

It would be interesting for you to call the manufacturers' support line and ask why this is happening. Maybe they will offer you a replacement if it was a manufacturing process defect. Mention that the paint may have fallen into the food.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

You need to thoroughly clean it, then sand it smooth to removew all the loose paint.

Once it's squeaky clean and dry, you can apply high-temperature appliance paint, which is available in brush-on or spray-on form at big box stores like Wal-Mart, home improvement centers like Lowe's and appliance parts stores.
