    WD-40, which should be a staple in any household, got almost all the glue substance off the front door of the microwave,,,,,,,,,it looks alot better...........thanks, Lbcoaster!!!!

    I had the same problem! after seeing the wd-40 solution I tried a little bittle of cooking oil and it worked fine...just be sure to use a SOFT cloth because that door scratches very easily (I scratched it with a paper towel!)

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!

If you spray wd 40 or a light oil on a rag and work it into the glue this will break down the glue and make it easier to clean up.
Hope that helps...

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.

My Siemens HF759 (Stainless steel) front has come away from the glass and is only hanging via the top of the glass by the handle. How do I put it back?

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.

Unable to eliminate odour from previous cooking despite the fact that I wipe the microwave with a soapy cloth & then with a clean cloth each time to Microwave is used

  1. 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 solution.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Place a microwave-safe plate on the microwave turntable. Set the bowl on the plate.
  6. 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
  7. Remove the bowl from the microwave. Wipe the microwave's interior surfaces with clean paper towels to remove steam moisture.
  8. Leave the microwave door open overnight to completely air out any remaining odors.

    How to repair cracked plastic rim on outside of door? Is it safe to use crazy glue?

    Yes, crazy glue is safe -- suggest letting it dry 24 hours before using oven. The heat could generate eye-watering fumes.

    The clear plastic cover is glued on. It can be removed with a heat gun to soften the glue. Then clean with Goof Off or WD40 and alcohol before installing the new one.

    Need to dissemble microwave oven door GE model JVM 1631 BB 002 to remove spider.

    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.

    Cannot Remove Sticker Goo on Door of New Sharp R-420lw Microwave

    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!

    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.
