Replace the door before you use it the screen if there for your safety from radiation and you cantbe certain of its integrity anymore, if you delegate to use it anyway stay back 3+ feet from unit when its operating for your safety.

A small fire started inside the oven. Only the glass broke everything else seems fine. Can I continue using it.


Maybe, maybe not.
You can probably find a replacement glass tray at a Good Will store.
I don't think I'd run it indoors any more. I'd set it on a couple of cinder blocks in the middle of my concrete driveway and hook it to a long, heavy duty extension cord.
Wear a face shield and stand back at least 10 feet after pressing the start button.

You should go to YouTube and search "Can you microwave that".
It's a series of videos.

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!

I broke the range glass door on the fef364dwb. What do I have to do to replace glass in door


If your oven took a hard enough hit to break the tempered glass window, you probably caused other damage inside as well.

If your oven is relatively new, you can probably order a door from the manufacturer or a FixYa.com advertiser.

You may find it will be more economical (and safer) to replace the oven.

How do you clean inbetween the oven glass door?


Hi,

To clean between you need to remove one of the pieces of glass...usually the inside is the best....

There are a few screws on the inside of the door theat hold the frame, which holds the inside glass...

remove the frame and carefully remove the inside glass... clean the inside of the outside glass, then clean the inside of the inside glass and then reinstall the froame over the inside glass...

Now you have a clean ove glass again...

Steam got inside door of microwave behind glass. Now there are white spots where water dried. How do I clean the inside?


Look and see if there are screws holding the inside of the door to the outside of the door.
If so, remove the screws and the door should come apart, and may be cleaned.
God bless your efforts.

The tempered glass on the outside of my microwave oven broke. Can I replace this with plexiglass and keep the microwaves from leaking?


Pliglas does not inhibit microwaves. Generally, even the glass door isn't protection either. A special film, usually a polymer, is applied to the inside of the glass. The 'film' looks like a black or gray 'screen' with little holes in it.

Condensation inbetween glass door on GE Spacemaker


Your glass seal has failed and I doubt it makes sense to replace the door. Yes, it can be dangerous as the moisture becomes worse you risk the chance the glass could over-heat and blow out. Sounds like you need to replace it, sorry!

Microwave door has burn spots on the glass of the door...


The brown spots are usually grease / smoke deposits. Usually there are indeed two sheets of glass in the door. If the grease is not arcing or smoking, and the metal screen / mesh (that blocks microwave leakage) is not damaged, then it's likely better left alone. It might be useful to boil a few cups of water with a little vinegar inside the microwave to help dissolve the deposits. In case you want to take it apart, I have attached a photo from a similar model that illustrates disassembly of the door. It is not necessary or advisable to remove the door or hinges when disassembling the door.
