Can paint chipping off inside the microwave cause problems? Can it possibly cause a short circuit problem? If a short circuit occurs what parts can it affect and can they be replaced?
ANSWER Hi Greg. It is very important that the interior cavity of the microwave be covered completely with white microwave paint. A short will occur and can directly damage the magnetron , transformer, and the control panel. To be exact on the parts affected can be different depending on the model #. I would use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist. you in your diagnosis. The wiring diagram is found inside the control panel. Unfortunately these parts are not available. Thank You.
