It should not pose a hazard as far as operation goes.. only if it becomes a sanitary issue..

Clean the interior per mfg suggestions.. and you may have to clean it more often now that you have this issue.

Microwaves cannot travel through metal.. you can actually use small pieces of foil (flat pieces) in most microwaves to shield items.. without any issues.

Best of luck

SOURCE: my microwave oven has are rust spots;can I paint over them?

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.

This is just okay but if you're quite doubtful you may bring this to any appliance service center for repaint

Paint is peeling off how can I fix it and do you know if its dangerous


I wouldn't advise trying to fix it and it's not dangerous. When heating food it causes condensation on the inside of the oven which pools at the bottom and causes rust and paint peel.

On the back seam of the oven where the floor meets with the back side, there seems to be some rust. is this a problem?


It is strange as the inside of micro wave ovens are usually stainless steel. Clean off the rust, you may find it is not rust at all. If it is rust it will be problem because it means that eventually dangerous radiation will be able to escape from the oven. But clean it first and inspect if there has been any corrosion of the material under the rust.

Coating inside oven has de-laminated and rust is forming under coating. Warranty?


Hello spark... no warranty unless the microwave is under 1 year. If there is a lot of rust and delamination you are best off to replace this oven.

The problem with delamination is that it exposes bare metal and can result in dangerous arcing.

If it is not real bad, sand off the rust and spray paint it with microwave cavity spray paint available at this link http://www.appliancezone.com/ShowProduct.aspx?ID=8338&AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1

This is actually a one-year-old Panasonic Inverter NN H965WFX 1250 watt microwave. The light inside flickers and staggers a bit, and the microwave does not heat or cook properly. The first time this...


Inside is a screen which sometimes arc. These are normally available from the dealers and is not very expensive. Microwaves are dangerous and repairs are better left to trained people.

When the oven is cooking for over 5 mins part of the door goes a white opaque colour inside the door, it is as if the seal is broken and steam is getting inside the door itself.


That's probably what's happening, but it's not dangerous as long as the internal cooling fan is running and the screen / mesh between the door panels is not arcing or rusting.

It's suggested that you leave the door open for a few minutes any time you cook and notice a moisture buildup afterward.

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