Need microwave glass door replacement

I broke the microwave glass door while cleaning it and I need a replacement immediately. Whirlpool model MH6140XKQ white, part # W10206726. I've ordered this from 2 other websites but with the first one they had no idea when it will be delivered and with the second one (SearsPartsDirect.com) I've been waiting for 5 weeks now and just today they told me that estimated delivery will be in April. This is a really old model (2001) and most sites will say that this is a backordered item.

I am just renting my apartment and it will cost too much to replace the whole microwave. Does anybody know where I can find this ready to be shipped? Or can I use a glass door with the same dimensions from a different manufacturer (since all glass doors are basically the same)? Or is there like a generic glass door that can be purchased? Would appreciate any references. Thanks!

    Thanks jyackle5, I will contact these stores to confirm the availability. I've tried other sites that showed the item is available but after checking with their customer support the item is on backorder or the like. Seems like they don't update their websites as often as needed as in the case of the 2 sites I ordered from more than a month ago.

They made Microwaves in 1977? wow. I would try an appliance junkyard, or ebay. We have used a microwave safe plate of the right size and it worked well. Good luck!

Own Whirlpool Microwave oven Model MH6141XKQ. How does one clean the "inside" glass of the door. By inside, I mean between the two glasses on the door.


You will need to remove the door and take the door apart to clean between the glass. This process is not that difficult. Just follow these steps:

1. Open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges to remove from oven.

2. Place the door, face down on a soft surface to protect the door and glass. A layer of towels on a countertop or table is recommended.

3. 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.

4. 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.

Make sure you remember how the door is assembled as you take it apart. If you forget, the following webistes have illustrated parts listings to show how your door is assembled:

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

The tempered glass on the outside of my microwave oven broke. Can I replace this with plexiglass and keep the microwaves from leaking?


Pliglas does not inhibit microwaves. Generally, even the glass door isn't protection either. A special film, usually a polymer, is applied to the inside of the glass. The 'film' looks like a black or gray 'screen' with little holes in it.

I called Whirlpool Corp and told them about the problem. They are sending a factory authorized repairman immediately to repair or replace the door. Thanks to FixYa, I found a solution!

The handle on my maytag microwave oven broke off at the bottom. How do I replace ? Model MMV5165BA


The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.

This is not difficult. 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.

Replacement parts can be found at any of the following sites:

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

I hope this helps you.

Clean between mesh and glass on microwave door


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.
