What causes steam in between glass microwave door

Cooking food in there will cause steam as the microwave heats the water content in your food to make it hot. This will mean some escapes and will settle somewhere it can find cooler than the rest of the unit

Condensation inbetween glass door on GE Spacemaker

Your glass seal has failed and I doubt it makes sense to replace the door. Yes, it can be dangerous as the moisture becomes worse you risk the chance the glass could over-heat and blow out. Sounds like you need to replace it, sorry!

Water has penetrated inside the door

Any water in between the glass and the door should evaporate eventually.
I wouldn't advise trying to open any seams in the door or removing the glass to get the water out as that would permanently damage your microwave.

Your models manual talks about steam/water condensation that gets trapped between the door and the glass and what to expect:

Condensation betwejn the front door glass

This would require disassembly of the door panels, which is not recommended unless really required.

You can download the installation guide to help you troubleshoot and correct your venting issues. That should be priority one.

It may be a clogged filter, a bird's nest in the outlet, etc. etc. Failure to vent can cause control panel and keypad trouble if it continues.

The manual / guide is found here:

GE XL1800 Door

OK, I'm no handy man and I just figured out how to do this. Open the door and remove the black plastic cover surrounding the inside glass. I used a regular flat head screw driver to pop this out.

Now I removed the 3 screws holding the inner panel against the glass on the front door. After removing the screws, the inner panel is held in place by a series of plastic clips. Go around the perimeter and pop the plastic clips out so the inner panel including the mesh comes out of the door.

Now you have complete access to clean the inside of the glass door!

I found it easier to do this operation with the door completely off the microwave, but you should be able to do this with the door in place too.
