This door is radius and would be difficult to replace. Repair clinic claims the part is due in at the end of this month, I wish you luck on your search. I have not seen someone make this correctly as the metal supports at the bottom are attached to the glass and the stainless steel outer panel is just a panel stuck to glass.
Think about calling up the Sears 800-4MY-HOME line... the parts dept can look up your model with the LIS and have the part sent to your address and a Tech to install it for you if you don't know how, plus if you do pay for a tech repair for like $40 they do a clean and prevenative maitnence check on any other appliance you may have thats acting weird.
There's a safty switch which prevents the unit from operating if the door isn't fully closed. When the glass shattered a small piece may have blocked the switch from operating properly. Check around the door seals for any irregularities.
You can purchase parts for Panasonic microwaves but home repair is not recommended due to them being lethal if you do something wrong. I would find a good local repair shop and they should be able to find the part and repair. It might not however be cost effective, depends on the part price.
This happened to us 3 weeks ago with our 3 year old Kitchenaid microwave. Several hours after its last use it just shattered. In doing research I discovered that this has also happend with GE microwaves, all 3 years old. The cause seems to have been a batch of defective glass supplied by a third party. Whirlpool was very quick to cover the cost of the replacement, even though our microwave was out of warrantee.
