Re: SERVICE STICKER LEAVES MARK ON FRONT DOOR OF...
Yes! I just bought a new Sharp microwave oven today and the stupid door sticker left 4 globs of glue residue behind. The outer door is made of very flexible plastic that could get easily scratched. I used WD-40 as someone else recommended, and that did the trick really well! Just spray some WD-40 on a very soft cloth (I used an old washcloth) and gently work it into the glue residue. Within 20-30 seconds the glue should dissolve. Gently wipe away the WD-40, wash with a little soapy water, and you're done!

Put a bowl of water with a couple of slices of lemon in it. Put it on low power (no convection) and heat the water up to a simmer. Turn off the microwave and leave the door closed for 10 minutes. Open the door and clean with dish soap and water, or for tough marks something like Comet or Mr Muscle Kitchen cleaner as all the dirt will be soft.
You can remove the front glass and trim by removing the two torx screws at the top of the door, they are the ones next to the prongs that stickup from the door when open. Once these are removed the door front lifts up as the bottom is only hooked on. It looks like you need to remove more screws but you don't. A two person job as the door needs to be held in the nearly closed position as you lift off the front. Once you have the door off remove the two screws holding the handle on and it is then just the glue holding the trim on which in your case and mine has failed. I googled for oven door glue and found a very good site which has excellent instructions and video for application. The biggest hassle was cleaning off the old glue (scraper and acetone) and making sure it was aligned correctly before gluing, I used masking tape for a few dry runs as you only get one chance with the glue and it goes off quickly. Hope this helps.
Fill a plastic bowl with 1 qt. of warm water. Add 2 tbsp. of liquid dish
soap and 1/4 cup of chlorine bleach to the water. Thoroughly mix the
Dampen a clean cotton rag in the solution. Wipe all inside surfaces of
the microwave with the soapy rag to remove food debris and stains. Scrub
stubborn residue with a nylon scrub brush.
Moisten another cotton rag with warm water. Wipe the
microwave surfaces with the rag to wash away soap and loose food
debris. Thoroughly rinse the inside of the microwave.
Dry the microwave's interior surfaces with paper towels. If
odors remain in the microwave, fill a microwave-safe bowl with 1 cup of
cool water. Add to the water 2 tbsp. of baking soda, half of a chopped
lemon (including pulp and rind) and four whole cloves.
Place a microwave-safe plate on the microwave turntable. Set the bowl on the plate.
Heat the microwave on high for three minutes. Operate the
microwave according to the manufacturer's directions. Keep the bowl in
the microwave for 15 minutes.7
Remove the bowl from the microwave. Wipe the microwave's interior surfaces with clean paper towels to remove steam moisture.
Leave the microwave door open overnight to completely air out any remaining odors.
Remove the inner strip around the door called the choke. If there are no screws visable it just snaps in place and does break if you are not very careful. This will give you access to the screws holding the outer frame piece and handle on. keep in mind, any repairs done to the door will necessitate a RFe leakage inspection. Boil some water on the front burners and cook the little guy and leave the door alone. Eric
Hi, Go get a can of wd40 and spray a rag with it then use wet rag to rub the old glue off-this will work for any kind of sticker or remains of stickers on most surfaces-wd40 works like magic when removing any old stickers-is especially awesome for Park pass type stickers on car windows!
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.
