The glass is not removable, due to safety reasons when the unit is being used.

The inner glass door on my oven exploded over christmas sending glass all over the kitchen no one was in the kitchen at the time or we would have been injured


That can happen with tempered glass. It sometimes happens with car windows too. Tempered glass is treated so that when it breaks, it shatters into little mainly rectangular pieces instead of very sharp shards and splinters. Because of the treatment, it's under stress and can sometimes break if there's a scratch or nick or sudden temperature change. It's possible that over time your oven's inner door had gotten scratched by things in the oven rubbing it, or it had been heated in spots where food spatters absorbed lots of microwave energy. It's a rare thing to happen, not really a result of anything you did, and not likely to happen again.

A kettle of soup boiled over on my new Kenimore Elite Electric Range. Some of the liquid that fell down the front went into the vents at the top of the door and dripped down onto the inside of the glass...


This question was asked almost 2 years ago, but thought I'd respond anyway. On the bottom of your oven door there are slots. Pull out the drawer beneath the oven door so you can work under it. Find something that will fit through the slots, a yard stick worked for me, or maybe a wire coathanger. Attach a paper towel or cloth securely to it and put it though the slots to reach the soiled area. It will take some manuvering. I would not recommend taking the door apart. When I did some research on this some time ago, I read that it can be difficult or impossible to get it back together again.

How do I clean the inside glass on the door - GE Profile JVM1870


I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
Model 665.61639100
Anyway, good luck with this. Hope someone has an answer for you (and me).
Mine has a open slot on the top front of the door. Kinda like a double plate window execpt for the opening in front. Why is this there? I don't know. Weird design. But it leaves for the possibilty of liquid to splash in there leaving it hard to clean (like impossible).

I'm thinking I have to completely remove and disect the door.

I need to replace the handle. Can you give step by step help?


To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also 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.

There are spots in the glass in the door can you take it appart


There is a screen behind the outer glass of the door which protects you from harmful microwave emmisions. Residue will build up here over time. Trying to clean this screen may damage it and subject you to serious problems. I have been using Microwave ovens for 35 years with no problems. I dont worry about this because germs will be eliminated by the emmisions.

Condensation betwejn the front door glass


This would require disassembly of the door panels, which is not recommended unless really required.

You can download the installation guide to help you troubleshoot and correct your venting issues. That should be priority one.

It may be a clogged filter, a bird's nest in the outlet, etc. etc. Failure to vent can cause control panel and keypad trouble if it continues.

The manual / guide is found here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

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.
