I need a new door for Delonghi Combi micro/grill model no. DMX30
I was about to use the oven when the phone rang and when I hung up I went straight to the oven and switched on, thinking that I had already put the food in, but the grill rack had fallen over against the door and consequently burnt a hole on the inside.

Brand and model would help but I'll guess at this. If micro is a wall hung unit over the range, you usually need to remove the top grill assembly above the door. Then look inside directly above the area where the bulb is located. You should see a metal cover with usually 1 screw in it to remove. Once screw is out that metal plate usually pulls forward and upward to reveal the bulb and socket. Replace bulb and reverse procedure to assemble.
If the micro is a counter top model---the complete outer case usually needs removed if you don't see a small access door by the bulb. Remove all screws around back edge and any screws in the side panels---then lift back edge and pull outer case rearward to remove.
If you're replacing the entire door, this is a very simple process that only requires you to open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door lifts off the hinge pins, and the new one can be reinstalled by aligning it back on the hinge pins. (You may have to remove the hinges from the old door and install them on the new one on some models).NOTE: In some cases you may have remove the upper grille guard to accommodate lifting the door. The mounting screws for the guard on located across the top of the oven.If you only need to replace the door handle, it can easily be replaced on MOST microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass.

Hi, I take it that this is a combi microwave? Some of these have settings on the front to microwave/grill/etc... so make sure its on the right one first!!
If you have selected the correct one then the m/wave does not work it could be several things!
Microwaves run to earth and need diodes to do this if these break down it will not m/wave! It could also be a internal fuse? ( but very unlikley if everything else works) Then you have the Mag or transformer which could be down to! M/waves run on a high power side and a low power side. The low power will not hurt you to much but the high power side will. My advice to uou is not to touch as it could be fatal as these things carry a high charge even when they are unplugged!
It is a safety fuse !but somthing has made it blow,and needs checking by microwave engineer.Possibly door interlock fault.Micros can kill even when UNPLUGGED be carefull. If you live in cheshire we can FIX IT Grandadfixer
there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's
manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.
Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.
it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and
see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom
covering the light(s), instead.
If not, chances are
you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If
so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.
On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.
screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special
driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.
Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.
Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.
Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
