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.

Magic Chef microwave oven


On alot of models the door comes as a complete assembly and can't be taken apart. Magic Chef is made by Maytag and I am pretty sure theirs do not come apart. If it does come apart then it is likely held togther by plastic tabs that have to be pried apart. The problem is they break easy and then you will be replacing parts. Guess you will have to decide if it is worth taking that chance because doors are expensive. I don't see your model # in the description but you can try looking a diagram by typing in your complete model # located on the sticker inside the microwave. Try sears.com and click on parts and various other repair sites. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

The outside glass on the microwave door has slipped down. Is that dangerous and can it be fixed?


Its not real good as it could shatter if door closed hard and there to protect against microwave radiation on the front.

A repair shop who looks at this will know first if door can be opened up and fixed or the door will have to be replaced.

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.

Can't get handle off to replace


I am not sure if I can picture the problem but I do know that if they put it together, it can be taken apart. I usually fall back on that. It just takes a lot of studying how the thing is put together. If they put the glass in, it can be taken out. And as a last resort, i would just call the store where I got it or else type into your search engine something like the following---- (your brand of microwave and the model) disassembly of door--------or------replace handle on my (brand and model). Ought to give some answers.

Condensation marks on microwave door


For most microwaves the process is pretty straightforward. You can open the door and you will see the screws that hold the outerinside panel on to the glass. After you remove those screws you will see the screws that hold the ouside cover to the door in place. Once you get that far you will see what is holding the glass in place. Keep in mind to replace the gaskets around the glass right and anything you take off to get to the glass itself. If you are getting condensation from range top cooking then the seal around the glass may need to be replaced. You really cannot hurt anything by taking it apart, but it needs to be put back together exactly the way you take it apart. Good luck and hope this helped.

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.

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.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Microwave door tension spring


See answer here http://www.fixya.com/support/t265705-microwave_door

in different thread.. Basically have to pry plastic trim ring off inside of door with putty knife (careful, it cracks easily) to get to screws on bottom of door. See second pic. Top screws are easily accessible from inside of door. Spring can easily be replaced by hand once you get adequate access. You'll need a fairly stubby right angle screwdriver (I used a cut-down #2 Phillips bit and small Vice-Grips as a make-do) to get to the screws. Also need Torx (T10, I think) to detach the shock absorber doodads from the door where they attach above the hinges. If you're just starting to take the door apart, be careful when you take out the top 2 screws on the inside-- they hold the inside plastic piece on , but they also hold the whole outer stainless/ glass/ handle piece on. It just slips in at the bottom, so be ready to slide it out when you take these screws out.fea33aa.pngc391898.jpg

Glass front on door unglued


First: do not use this unit with the glass improperly installed. Often, these installations use double sided foam tape, available at any hardware store. Carefully remove the screws in the door being careful to catch the glass. Clean the area where the tape will go with glass cleaner or alcohol. Allow to dry and buff to remove oil and grease. Install the tape and glass. Reassemble.
