MOM! When you say" Front Panel Door Seperates". Do you mean the front PLASTIC escuteon, or door cover? There is no seal as such like a gasket. The metal shield,or screen that you look through into your microwave is the seal. A microwave,( if it could be seen) is about the diameter of a pencil. It is neither gas, or liquid thus it cannot squeeze through openings smaller than it's diameter. So! the small openings or holes (That you look through) in the front screen of your microwave door are seen as solid metal by a microwave and the microwave is reflected back into the cavity. The only safety issue is damage to the screen.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.


You'd have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) to get to the inner parts.

You can also watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

How do I test a microwave for 'leakage'?... Does calling to a cell phone placed inside a closed microwave indicate 'leakage' if the cell phone rings/receives the call? Thank you


The "cell phone" test is a fraud. Cell phones operate on a frequency range much lower than microwaves (800 MHz for phones and 2.5 GHz for the ovens), and the metal screen in the microwave door won't affect them. The phone will ring loud and clear and it doesn't mean the oven is leaking microwaves.

You can buy a "microwave leakage test card" at some stores that supposedly change color when you hold in front of the door if the oven is leaking microwaves. This is also a fake. It actually responds to heat, on the thory that if heat is escaping around the door then microwaves are too. That's wrong.

The only sure way to test for microwave leakage is with a standardized leakage test meter. This is a fairly expensive electronic device. You really don't need to worry about microwave leakage unless the door of the oven is visibly out of alignment so that it isn't closing and sealing properly. If the door hasn't been getting slammed shut and the oven hasn't been dropped, everything should be fine. Take the oven to a service shop for a leakage test if you are concerned.

One final note: Microwave energy drops off rapidly with distance. Just don't stand right in front of the oven while it's running.

Hope this helps ease your mind. Thanks for using Fixya!

Damaged internal door panel


For most models, door panel parts are available and can be replaced separately.

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


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

The best place to order Panasonic parts is Tritronics. You can also call them at 866-779-5835.

Normally the problem is a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

There may also be a piece on the side edge of the door which needs to come off, too.

Removed splatter shield


I am currently fixing my microwave, which has done the same thing. Go to http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/smartsearch.aspx?SearchText=%60AMicrowave

just select your brand and under parts, select doors and handles. It will be called Door film, peel & stick. For my microwave, it runs from $16.00 to $21.00. Seems like a very easy fix.
