Question about Microwave Ovens

Superglue and Microwaves

The glass tray in the microwave cracked. They want some $50 bucks to replace it. Ouch. I was thinking of maybe using some superglue to put it back together. Wasn't sure if the superglue would be compatible with the microwave energy, though. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the reply, rjbeg123. Unfortunately, the seller on EBay wants $12 just to cover the shipping. Including the shipping charges, a replacement plate on EBay would cost more than retail.

Absolutely not compatable with the expansion and contraction of glass as it heats and cools. I dropped my plate and was able to get a replacement on Ebay for a $12.00 including shipping.

I have a Emerson lf320em4a with cracked glass can I take the glass out and would it still work


It is a microwave designed to work as sold ....not with modification. Microwaves can cause cancer I believe. Have the glass replaced , have the machine properl repaired or buy a new one would be my thinking.

What would cause the glass tray in the microwave to shatter


  • The glass tray had a hairline crack or stress fracture that was not visible
  • It got a little too hot in one area
  • The expansion from the heat caused the fracture to expand and therefore crack and break
An accidental bumping of the microwave plate on the countertop while going from the microwave to the dishwasher might set up the above situation. The spoon your seven year old left in the mac and cheese might have arced and nicked a small piece of the glass. Whatever the cause, microwave trays break and they break for a lot of reasons.

All foods cooked in the microwave produce heat. Microwaves themselves are not hot, but the foods cooked in a microwave get hot - some much hotter than others.
Even though most microwave glass trays are tempered, they are not designed to hold up under high temperatures. You will see most microwave trays stamped with the words "For microwave oven use only" This is to let us know that it's probably not a good idea to use the trays in a conventional oven.
Any air pockets, cracks or gaps in the glass can enlarge under heat. Since glass isn't very receptive to being stretched, breakage can occur.

Need new glass tray for Kenmore microwave bought in 1977. Model # 99371.


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!
