If only the surface is damaged or rusted then unplug the unit and wipe the damaged surface with a soft rag to remove loose flakes of rust.If the rust is under a glass shelf, remove be shelf. If the shelf is held by sealer, use a razor blade or utility knife to slice through the sealer. After the shelf has been removed, clean off any strips of sealer that remain.Buy a spray can of enamel paint for your make of microwave oven from a dealer who sells your type of oven. Also buy a tube of RTV [room temperature vulcanizing) sealer if the unit has a glass shelf.Following directions on the can of paint, refinish the damage. Let the paint dry.Install the glass shelf.
