Question about LG Microwave Ovens

LG door panel separating

Our LG microwave door panel seems to be falling apart. The glass piece is about 1/2" away from the frame about 3/4 of the way around the cut out of the door and the plastic backing on the inside of the door gives quite a bit. It seems like the two pieces need to be taken apart and the glass needs to be pushed back up against the front cut-out or frame of the front of the doot.

DO NOT use this microwave in the current condition it is in- please! Although microwaves do not emit ionizing radiation, it does emit non-ionizing radiation and electromagnetic fields- and there is a lot of research studies being done possibly linking microwave exposure to cancer.
If your microwave is in that bad a shape, bring it to an authorized microwave repair shop or junk it and buy a new one.

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.

The glass on the microwave door on the outside has slipped down and there is no screws to take apart the door and fix the glass. Does this fall under the warranty? My 5 years is up on 12/01/09.


I would contact customer service (for Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here about the warranty and to find your nearest authorized servicer.

If not, it's pretty easy to fix this yourself.

There are probably broken tabs on the inner or outer door panel.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

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

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

How to change the handle


To access the door handle mounting screws, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to simply pry the plastic up and work your way gradually around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens 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 have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Microwave door glass has slipped down into the frame


What usually happens is there are tabs on one of the inner door panels that holds the glass up.

If one tabs breaks, the other one soon will, then the glass slips down.

If the mesh / screen is still in place and undamaged, and the door is otherwise undamaged, there shouldn't be any leakage.

You or someone you know may be able to take the door apart and use epoxy to fashion new retainers for the glass.

Or you can usually order the specific door panel piece that you need but if you want to, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Door spring


this model is very tricky you will damage the inner frame if your not experienced ,call for service and save your money,there are 2 springs inside the frame that criss/cross and they may look alike but are not,when you undo the screws the door glass will let go and fall to the floor if you don't know and crack the inner fram assy. thats plastic ,there are 4 screws that hold the door together that you can see and 2 more inside you can't. the 2 on the bottom of the door that support the glass are hard to getat.the micro wave oven can be seperated from the bottom unit and pulled foward for access of screws.
