A 46-year-old male asked:
is it dangerous to use a microwave with rust on the inside of the door?

Rust: In my opinion the danger would come from leakage of microwaves going into the room through openings in the lining of the door if there are worn and open areas in the lining of the door. An appliance repairman is best qualified to answer your question,however.
