SOURCE: paint inside microwave oven, Can it be repainted ?

Yes. You need to clean it, sand it shiny, then clean it squeky again.

Then you can get high temperature appliance paint in spray on brush-on form from local appliance part store or places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.

I would suggest you let it dry overnight with the door open before using the oven.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: change of lamp in LG microwave oven MS-194A

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

If you don't have your instructions, please reply back with your brand and model number.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

SOURCE: Oven not switching on after trying to preheat

If there is not enough airflow around the oven it will turn off for safety. It will reinstate itself once it has cooled.

If this does not recover I suggest you call for a warranty service, but I am hopefiul its just the overheat sensor.

SOURCE: Have a GE Profile Microwave/Convection oven.

It may be a bad convection heating element or just a bad thermal cutout.

If it's less than one year old, it will be fully covered under warranty and you can contract GE here to have an authorized servicer come out and fix it free.

If it's out of warranty and you or someone you know wants to check it out, I'd first suggest you take a look at the "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit (behind the control panel, hidden on the left side behind the grille, or attached to the inside of the outer cover) which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Otherwise, see these files: safety disassembly

Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.


You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.


You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.


I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

SOURCE: LG microwave oven rotating but not heating

I have found that the common cause for this problem is either the 'High Voltage Fuse (HV fuse)' or the 'Magnatron Assembly'. In some instances it can easily be both.
My advice is to read throughly how to discharge a 'High Voltage Capacitor (HV capacitor)' to avoid any injury or worse yet, death.
After doing so you can find the HV fuse runing from the HV capacitor, it will be inside a small plastic casing, you will be able to see with the naked eye if it has blown. If so, replace it.
As for the magnatron Assembly, it looks like a large silver cube with a series of magnets inside it, they are not as easy to test to see if they are faulty or not so if the fuse doesnt repair the issue, replace the magnatron assembly as well. I hope this offers some help. Good luck.
