Normally you have to separate the door panels as shown in the photo below.

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

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: remove a door on a microwave

I wouldn't remove the door myself if I were you. If you just got the microwave, it should be under a return/replace policy, or a warranty. I would recommend returning the microwave and getting a sturdier one, as you don't know if the problem exists for all microwaves in that series, and most stores don't allow the replacement to be return/replaced.

The keypad controller is defective, behind it there is the microprocessor ic mounted on a board with several other parts. The whole keypad and circuit board must be replaced, and the cost just for the part will run more than a new microwave.

Can I buy a new door. Current door is cracked on the corners.


You easily replace the door on most microwave ovens by opening the door all the way up and lifting straight up at the hinges. The door should lift off of the hinge pins. On some microwave ovens, you may have to remove the upper grill cover over the door (if equipped) to accommodate door removal.


NOTE: Some doors have a hinge pin that needs to be removed, or screws holding the door in place at the hinge.


There are several parts sources available that you can may try to purchase replacement parts:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites on the list also offer helpful exploded view parts listings to aid in parts identification and location. Just type in your model number and locate the parts listing for the door. Some manufacturers only sell the door as a complete assembly. Others may sell individual parts. To save money, you may also try just purchasing the door facing parts that are cracked. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this advice is helpful.

On the inside of the door of my microwave front window is an adhesive plastic covering that if you pull it off there is a black mesh screen exposed. is that clear sheet suppose to be removed.


The metal mesh is a filter screen to keep the microwaves in the oven while letting you see the food. The plastic sheet that's peeling off is meant to keep that screen clean. It's not supposed to be removed, since then food can get into the holes in the screen. A buildup of foods can lead to overheating and burn the paint and possibly damage the door. It should be replaced.

The part number is WB36X10068. A Google search turned up several sources. Here's one, but there are others. The new sheet has the adhesive applied, you just peel off the protective film and stick it in place. Clean the door inner surface first so the new sheet will stick firmly.

Good luck with the repair, and thanks for using Fixya!

I NEED TO REPLACE PART 83242. HOW DO I REMOVE


I do not know what part #83242 is. A search of several reliable parts web sources, yielded no positive results. So, I'm guessing this may be a door handle(?). If so, to access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you need to remove the entire door, simply open it all the way and lift at the hinges. The door will lift off the hinge mounts. You may wish to remove the door for an easier means of working on it. Especially, if the microwave is mounted above your range.

If you have questions, please let me know. If this is not what you are needing assistance with, please post back with the name of the part you are trying to replace. I hope you find this information helpful.

Removed splatter shield


The parts can be ordered from the Panasonic authorized parts rep. You have to contact Panasonic for details.

I strongly recommend to have any work on a microwave oven done professionaly. There are radiation leakage issues if the door is not re-assembled properly. After doing any service the microwave oven must be tested for radiation leaks. I doubt that you have the radiation testing equipment to make sure that there are no leaks.

Door Window steams up on Microwave


Is the internal cooling fan running? You should feel air flow from the grille in the front or back (as the case may be).

If it's just steaming up the inner face of the door, that's fairly normal, but if the steam is appearing inside the layers of the door, that is not normal.

Since it's new and you've got a warranty, I would call Emerson.
