    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

Why do most microwaves come with white interior rather than stainless steel?

Hello,

I have a Danby microwave that is stainless steel all around. Now when it needs a replacement I am having trouble finding a microwave with a stainless steel interior. Even the most stylish, new microwaves on the expensive side come with a white epoxy interior.
Is there a reason for that?

Thanks

Easier to see the food platters so they can be cleaned up?!?!

Cheaper to! Painted metal rather than SS.
