Cracked Microwave Case safe to use?

Have a GE Over the Range Microwave. Only a few years old, minimal use. Noticed a crack in the control panel case to the right of the clock and around the side. GE has instructed us to contact a repair tech, but I imagine the service call alone would be more expensive than getting a new microwave. There are no other apparent issues with the unit. Is there any danger in using the microwave with a crack in the case?

That does not seem to really be an issue or dangerous. Could probably be simply repaired with some epoxy. Filled in and sanded down. Maybe someone else will remember what material would be best for this if it bothers you.
