On alot of models the door comes as a complete assembly and can't be taken apart. Magic Chef is made by Maytag and I am pretty sure theirs do not come apart. If it does come apart then it is likely held togther by plastic tabs that have to be pried apart. The problem is they break easy and then you will be replacing parts. Guess you will have to decide if it is worth taking that chance because doors are expensive. I don't see your model # in the description but you can try looking a diagram by typing in your complete model # located on the sticker inside the microwave. Try and click on parts and various other repair sites. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Need to know correct size of microwave door glass for LG model MG-604w mine is broken after a fall, can I still use without glass?

NO, do not use the microwave with a broken door glass, this glass is specially protected to stop any dangerous microwave leakage, it is also something you cannot replace yourself, take it to a reputable service centre so that once the glass has been repaire the oven can be tested for safety purposes.

Can you use a microwave if the glass on the door is broken?

It is not advisable. The door is a critical safety part of the microwave oven. The glass being gone will allow heat in areas of the door not designed for heat. The glass also is a support for the safety mesh that contains the microwave energy to the cavity.

Loose handle.

To access the door screws on MOST microwave ovens, you need to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains:

This can be peroformed with the door in place, or with the door removed. If you have any questions, please post back with your complete model number and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Cannot clean the inside door between glass and mesh - any ideas?

Unfortunately it is not possible to do this without dismantling the door. The mesh is very important for containing microwave energy in the oven cavity. If the door is dismanteled it is important not to damage the mesh and to have the oven tested for possible leakage after it has been re assembled.

How do I clean the inside glass on the door - GE Profile JVM1870

I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
Model 665.61639100
Anyway, good luck with this. Hope someone has an answer for you (and me).
Mine has a open slot on the top front of the door. Kinda like a double plate window execpt for the opening in front. Why is this there? I don't know. Weird design. But it leaves for the possibilty of liquid to splash in there leaving it hard to clean (like impossible).

I'm thinking I have to completely remove and disect the door.
