Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
y G.E. microwave oven interior is bubbling and peeling. What causes this? I don't use
any cleaner other than dishwasher soap and water after I do the dishes. I do not use the micro for any long period cooking. No reason for this as far as I'm concerned.
how do they not want to assume any responsibility there the ones who made this!!
how big is the area? i would call them again and threaten them with a lawyer see if they change there tune!!! how old is this? this make me mad and its not even mine!!
The combination oven and microwave wall unit is 5 years old. This has been on-going for a year. A tech from the place I bought the unit just left and said after he filled my house with nauseting fumes, that that was the best he would do, not could do. That was all he was going to do! He sprayed the interior with a G/E/ recommended appliance paint but it raised up and will most likely peel off again. I will not use this oven and micro again for fear of the fumes being heated and going into our food.
Will lmost likely have to get a lawyer!
Ann But, my question still hasn't been answered? What could cause this?
all i can say is that they did not prep the surface for painting just like when your gonna paint a car the surface has to be cleaned really good for the paint to adhere if not then you will get peeling or bubbles in the paint ive read the reviews and theres alot of people with this problem some even have it when its still new and with it being under warrenty yet they gotten a new microwave but this is what you do if you want to repair it yourself
You need to thoroughly clean it, then sand it smooth to remove 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
The tech did all of that and just finished. Got the appliance paint from G.E. at the hefty price of $48.00 pr. can. He used a primer first then the paint and it still is not going to work. It looks like a reaction to the product now!
i dont blame you one bit but the fact remains is that it came like this from the factory you and 20,000 people if not more have this same problem and ge dosent want to own up to it think about it why would they even make a paint for the interior anyways that ought to say something thats my opinion i would put a sign in front of my house saying dont ever buy a ge microwave boycott them
