Is my microwave safe to use if the inside of the oven is pealing?


Most likely if the metal screen in the door is intact. That screen and the metal cover on the back and sides surrounds the insides of the oven reflect the microwaves back into the oven. Just be careful about the peeling plastic inside.

The plastic cover on the window of the door is peeling. iIs there any danger in this? Other than that the microwave is working perfectly. Does this cover or the microwave have to be replaced?


The plastic cover on the door stops food particles and steam entering the inside part that is not easily cleaned.
That's all.
It is like thick selotape.

On the inside of the door of my microwave front window is an adhesive plastic covering that if you pull it off there is a black mesh screen exposed. is that clear sheet suppose to be removed.


The metal mesh is a filter screen to keep the microwaves in the oven while letting you see the food. The plastic sheet that's peeling off is meant to keep that screen clean. It's not supposed to be removed, since then food can get into the holes in the screen. A buildup of foods can lead to overheating and burn the paint and possibly damage the door. It should be replaced.

The part number is WB36X10068. A Google search turned up several sources. Here's one, but there are others. The new sheet has the adhesive applied, you just peel off the protective film and stick it in place. Clean the door inner surface first so the new sheet will stick firmly.

Good luck with the repair, and thanks for using Fixya!

How nice of them!
Often it is caused by the use of hand cremes affecting and tarnishing the metal coating or the plastic pigments.Many items suffer from handremeitis
including the letters on keyboards car door handles, AC knobs etc etc.
Unfortunately it is the way of life that is associatedkin care and vanity.

Can't clean the inside of the glass door--the screen blocks it


Have to replace the door. You probably removed the protective plastic cover inside the unit intended to keep material from passing through the screen into the area where the glass is located. That was my problem. I thought the plastic was shipping material. My Bad! No way to clean the glass from the inside because they "never imagined" someone would remove the plastic cover.

Hello JudyKitz,
That mesh is there to protect the user and acts as a shield to contain microwave energy to the cooking compartment. Never compromise that material.. You can purchase replacment liners at this site http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5130353 If you prefer, you can get a thin piece or sheet plastic cut to fit at many local hardware stores or home centers..You may want to make a paper template or take accurate measurements with you for that method.. Hope this helps you..

Hole in plastic on inside of door


check the conductivity of the plastic with an ohmmeter by placing the probes an inch apart on the plastic surface. If the resistance is large or infinity, the plastic probably performs no role in stopping the microwave radiation. If so, any epoxy probably can be used to close the hole safely. Make sure you don't use too much and if possible place tape over the repair and orient the microwave so the epoxy presses against the tape while drying to prevent it from oozing into any door hinge/close mechanism. Otherwise, a piece of microwave door glass from a broken unit can ge glued over the hole and should stop the radiation. You can check for leakage with test units but be very carefuly anyway.
