Can I remove the seal tape from my microwave door, clean the stains, and replace with new?

I have a whirlpool above range microwave oven, model number MH613OXEB. There is severe discoloration on the glass front door, which I believe is caused from steam buildup where the plastic seal has separated slightly from the back of the door. If I buy a replacement seal, can I remove the old seal and clean the flat bubble screen, or do I need to remove that screen as well, and order a new one?

SOURCE: damaged inner seal tape on whirlpool microwave door window

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: I have a Whirlpool Microwave

Open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges to remove from oven. Now, place the door, face down on a soft surface to protect the door and glass. Set up a layer of towels on a counter top or table to lay the door down on it. Remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The panel is pressed in place and can be removed by using a small screwdriver or putty knife and carefully insert along the seam of the inner panel. Work your way slowly around the perimeter of the glass to release the clips that hold it in place so you can pry the plastic up and pop the panel loose. Use care not to pry against the glass. With the inner panel removed, the glass should be easily accessible and can be carefully lifted out and cleaned. Clean with a good non-streaking glass cleaner.

Replacing a door switch on a whirlpool microwave


On most over the range models (you didn't mention your model number) you can access the door switches for testing after removing the grille and control panel assembly.

It would likely be the primary door switch, but that varies by model.

Also, on some models, this is caused by a blown TCO / thermal cutout / thermostat on the magnetron.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

NOTE: If you wish to remove the door, all you need to do on most models is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. You may have to remove the grille cover located above the door on some models to accommodate being able to lift the door.

How do I remove/replace the plastic seal on the inside door of a MH1150XMQ-1?


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.

There are stains in between the glass on the door. How can I remove and clean this?


Hello :

Disassembling the door yourself will void the warranty and may require a service technician to repair any damage or put the door back together. It is recommended that a service technician complete this for you. It is not recommended that you disassemble the door yourself.

Things You Will Need:
Glass cleaner
Soft cloths
Glass stovetop cleaner
Steps to Remove the Glass:
Make an appointment with a service technician to remove the glass from the door.
Use glass cleaner to remove as much of the debris as possible.
For tougher stains and food debris, use a glass stovetop cleaner to aid with removal.
Once the stains and debris are removed, allow the service technician to reassemble the door.
 
Cleaning Through the Door Vents:

When the glass cannot be removed or is no longer covered by the warranty, there are other, more creative, ways that can be used to clean it.

Things You Will Need:
Long handled cleaner
Bottle brush
Yardstick/ruler wrapped in cloth
Bent hanger wrapped in cloth
Dryer vent brush
Glass cleaner
Soft cloths/towels/long socks
Duct tape (optional)
Steps to Clean Between the Glass:
Some Microwave ovens have small vents along the bottom or top of the door. These vents go in between the glass (and are likely part of the problem with other materials getting in there as well). By inserting a towel on a long-handled stick, you can gently clean between the glass without disassembling the door.First, find the vents on the door if you have them.
It may be easier to remove the door from the hinges and lay it flat on the floor. Many microwave oven doors simply lift right off of the hinges, others will require loosening a few screws first. Replacing the door should be easy to do at the end of the cleaning and will not void the warranty.
Start by choosing a long-handled cleaning tool. There are a variety of options available, so be creative.
Secure a towel or soft cloth (long socks work well) to the handle with duct tape or other strong tape. Make sure it’s well fastened so it doesn’t come off and become stuck in the door.
Moisten the towel or soft cloth with the window cleaner or other cleaning product.
Insert the cleaning tool through the vents.
Move the cloth back and forth to remove the debris from between the glass.
Remove the cloth.
Repeat with a clean cloth until all of the debris is gone.
Replace the door on the oven and enjoy the clear, clean view.

WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .

Kenmore mirowave # 72162643200 handle is broken


I have the exact same problem and the cost for a tech to replace the door is $80 less than buying a new one. They have to remove the unit from the cabinets and pull off the exterior box to unscrew the door hinge. Mine is only 3 years old. I also bought a new oven range. Never really use it. Decided it was time to use the self cleaning. It did not work. $280 to put a new board in. 4 months later I went to clean it and again it did not work. The f*^ing thing only cost $500. Decided Easy off will have to do. Kenmore s*&ks

As for the door... I very CAREFULLY used super glue/ gel and it did the job!

Kenmore Over the Range Microwave


If you think the window is stained, you ought to see the rest of the inside! Wife is probably right. (wink, wink, nod, nod)
Actually, you can take the cover off, remove the front panel without much effort and clean everything and get a lot more life out of it. Microwaves usually die because of heat related problems caused by buildup of yuck on the guts.
Hope Ya Make your Wife Happy!

Modelnn-h264/s254 1100 watts


This door screen as it's called protects the metal mesh screen from moisture and food debris. The door screen must be replaced or the mesh screen can arc and be damaged, which can lead to microwave leakage. You can order a new screen from Panasonic at: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/Epartr/PartsListChoice.asp It may be this part: F31455H00AP DOOR SCREEN A 5.75 But it might be better to call Panasonic at 800-833-9626 and be sure this is the right part. Be sure to have your FULL model nuber (with suffix) when you call. Be sure to use a cleaner like acetone, etc. to remove all the old adhesive before applying the ne wone, or it will not stick. The door must be squeaky clean and dry.
