Question about Ovens
I assume you know where to get a new control panel for the oven since you have done it before but if not, let me know. To protect the controls you can use a heat shield. http://www.heatshieldproducts.com/ is a great place to find something that will work or I would contact a local heating and air conditioning service and see what they have or would recommend. Anything use on automotive exhaust pipes and around the engine should be good for your purposes. Let me know how this turns out.

The heat you are noticing is probably from the transformer inside rather than from any escape of microwave energy. In the oven is free standing then it may need more space around it to cool, if built in then ensure any vents around the housing are not closed off or obstructed. A microwave oven heats food by dielectric heating. This is accomplished by using microwave radiation to heat water and other polarized molecules within the food.
This excitation is fairly uniform, leading to food being adequately heated throughout (except in thick objects), a feature not seen in any other heating technique.
Microwave ovens heat food quickly, efficiently, and safely, but do not brown or bake food in the way conventional ovens do. This makes them unsuitable for cooking certain foods, or to achieve certain effects.
Microwaving food raises several safety issues, largely connected with leakage of microwave radiation outside the oven, as well as reducing risks, such as that of fire from high temperature heat sources. There has been some concern that microwaves might damage food (microwave radiation has sounded alarming to some), but the dominant view is that microwaved food is as safe to eat as other food.
Telephone the manufacturers if in doubt. I doubt it’s a serious problem. The back of the fridge or freezer is also hot.
Take care and God Bless.
