There is a screen behind the outer glass of the door which protects you from harmful microwave emmisions. Residue will build up here over time. Trying to clean this screen may damage it and subject you to serious problems. I have been using Microwave ovens for 35 years with no problems. I dont worry about this because germs will be eliminated by the emmisions.

    If the spots are not accessible from the inside or outside, you will have to live with them Joek. Please don't try to take the door apart.

hi my name is mark, the spot probably is a hot spot. something is absorbing some of the microwave energy.or something that food was cooked on in oven got hot enough to cause spot. you can check taking a glass or bowl of water setting it off to the side of the spot, and after it times out, carefully feel spot to see if it heated up. thanks for your question.

Glass door

It doesn't appear to have been involved in a recall, but since its a non-US model, I probably can't get much more info on it.

Many if not most glass suppliers from the phone book will handle tempered glass too.

Microwave door has burn spots on the glass of the door...

The brown spots are usually grease / smoke deposits. Usually there are indeed two sheets of glass in the door. If the grease is not arcing or smoking, and the metal screen / mesh (that blocks microwave leakage) is not damaged, then it's likely better left alone. It might be useful to boil a few cups of water with a little vinegar inside the microwave to help dissolve the deposits. In case you want to take it apart, I have attached a photo from a similar model that illustrates disassembly of the door. It is not necessary or advisable to remove the door or hinges when disassembling the door.
