    It is a National Panasonic nn-c888c convection/microwave and the glass was broken during transit. Where can I get the glass here in the Philippines.

    It needs to be tempered glass to withstand heat and to prevent shattering if it breaks. (again).

    Your oven may be subject to a safety recall due to defective glass or a door frame that is too tight, resulting in glass breakage.

    Please reply back with your brand and full model number so we can help you.

Microwave glass usually has a special metal screen on the inside to keep out harmful microwaves.

It doesn't appear to have been involved in a recall, but since its a non-US model, I probably can't get much more info on it.

Many if not most glass suppliers from the phone book will handle tempered glass too.

Need to know correct size of microwave door glass for LG model MG-604w mine is broken after a fall, can I still use without glass?


NO, do not use the microwave with a broken door glass, this glass is specially protected to stop any dangerous microwave leakage, it is also something you cannot replace yourself, take it to a reputable service centre so that once the glass has been repaire the oven can be tested for safety purposes.

Broken microwave door glass


Be very careful with microwaves. I would not work on it myself. Technicians actually have a meter to measure for leaks after they put it back together. I would be surprised if you could get parts for it anyway. You risk life and limb if you get it wrong.

Door handle broken away from microwave unit.


The door handle can easily be replaced. This is a common problem with microwave oven doors. You would think the manufacturer's would make them a bit more durable.

This is a very simple repair. 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 about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Broken door hook


The plastic cover on the inside of the door is purely push fit.
To force it off I used 2 strong stainless steel dinner knives.
By easing one knife between the internal glass and the plastic cover I managed to spring one corner by using the other knife on the external bottom edge of the plastic cover.
Try concentrating on one end and once this springs out it is easy to free the rest without having to take it off completely.
The hook is simple to do but be careful with the spring.
All in all it took 3 minutes!
