    The door glass has a burnt discoloration area on the bottom. It is Model MH6150XHB-1 but is not included any any recalls. It has grown over the course of a couple of years. The inside of the door has a plastic sheeting over the window. In these areas it seems to have air bubbles. Can this hurt anything? Also, the turntable has not worked in about 3 years.

    I've had the same issue of discoloration in the door on Model MH6141XKQ, for the past several years. It appears to be a reaction from steam from cooking on the stovetop. We got it in 2002. A few days ago it stopped heating, and the turntable no longer rotates. Buttons, fan, light all still work. Not sure if the problem is related. Will let you know if I find out it is.

    Also would like to know if this is fixable, or should I just start looking for a new microwave?

No power dead

power outages cause power surges and will damage electronic control boards. I suggest replacing the Control board and checking the interlocking door switches. Whilst inside the microwave check the magnetron for discoloration around the magnetron horn or gun as it were. If it don't look clean and new, otherwise burnt it's bad !

Need to know correct size of microwave door glass for LG model MG-604w mine is broken after a fall, can I still use without glass?

NO, do not use the microwave with a broken door glass, this glass is specially protected to stop any dangerous microwave leakage, it is also something you cannot replace yourself, take it to a reputable service centre so that once the glass has been repaire the oven can be tested for safety purposes.

Can you use a microwave if the glass on the door is broken?

It is not advisable. The door is a critical safety part of the microwave oven. The glass being gone will allow heat in areas of the door not designed for heat. The glass also is a support for the safety mesh that contains the microwave energy to the cavity.

How to replace a blown bulb

  • check the size of the bulb required before you buy a replacement bulb. Most use a 40 watt appliance bulb. I
  • Confirm that the oven is not on. Allow it to cool to room temperature if it has recently been used.
  • Open the oven door and use a flashlight to light the area where the bulb is located. Do not put weight on the door itself, but go in at an angle or sideways.
  • Find the shield or cover over the bulb, gently pull or twist it off. Some glass covers are surrounded by a wire clip or a ring that is screwed in to the back then Gently remove either the wire clip or ring. Since the cover is most likely glass, be careful then Unscrew the entire glass cover similar to a jar lid in older versions of ovens. repeat process if there is more than one bulb..hope this helps pls do let me know

    Microwave oven flashed and groaned, staining cover of waveguide

    I suspect the water content of the frankfurther was your issue. Operating a mwave at full capacity without adequate load to absorb energy would cause something like this to occur. Ultimately the energy had to go somewhere, it chose the weakest point to dissapate. You mention to glasses of water heated up fine? Then no worrie if theres no additional funny noises.

    Suggest you lower the power level to around 25% to cook a furter. :o) Or put a mug of water in with it.

    Glass front on door unglued

    First: do not use this unit with the glass improperly installed. Often, these installations use double sided foam tape, available at any hardware store. Carefully remove the screws in the door being careful to catch the glass. Clean the area where the tape will go with glass cleaner or alcohol. Allow to dry and buff to remove oil and grease. Install the tape and glass. Reassemble.
