Can I paint my microwave?

Painting your appliances won't be a permanent fix, but it's a budget-friendly option for outdated items such as your oven, fridge, microwave, stove or washer and dryer. Available in heat-resistant finishes, appliance paint is a durable option that can dramatically change the look and feel of your kitchen.

Correspondingly, what kind of paint can you use on the inside of a microwave?

There are two types of appliance paint that can be used to coat the interior of the oven: brush-on and spray-on. The best type to use is in spray because it saves a lot of time and effort; however, brush-on paint may come in handy for small spot repairs.

Beside above, can I use my microwave if it's rusty? Rust on the outside of the microwave isn't an issue, unless it eats its way through to the interior cavity, allowing arcing and radiation to escape the microwave. As long as the interior of the microwave oven remains sealed and intact, microwave radiation poses no threat to humans; you can sand and repair its interior.

Keeping this in consideration, is it safe to use a microwave with peeling paint?

If the coating is actively flaking or paint is peeling anywhere inside the oven cavity (including under the turntable) discontinue the use of the microwave and replace it. The microwave is not repairable. The inadvertent ingestion of small amounts of peeling coating does not create a health risk.

How do you know when your microwave is going out?
