SOURCE: 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.

Need to clean inside of the glass front panel. also want to get the handles of it and the grill white again not stained smokie colour


You might be able to get a manual for it on the manufacturers web site.

Have you looked into the price of a new door assembly? Given all the issues with the old door, it might be the best way to go. Plus, some doors simply can't be taken apart.

If you do decide to attempt to disassemble the door, you will need to have the microwave leakage level checked with a calibrated meter.

Hi, i have a dirty window , have cleaned both sides without touching it. think its between the glass and the liner. can' find my manual. can i take the bake of the door glass off some way to clean...


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today. It is hard to take apart without breaking it! It is held together with all plastic clips and they break! But you can by putting a putty knife in the inside door seam all the way around and pry the clips down to pop the door apart.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Our oven door has become dirty from juices spilled and has got in bewtween the glass on the door. Can this be taken apart and cleaned out????


Depending on the make and model of microwave it should be cleanable.
If you have countersunk screws along the outer of the door edge, unscrew the screws and then the plastic from should pry off allowing access to clean the inside portion or let you remove even more screws allowing access to the inside.
Some have a plastic bead on the inside of the door that covers up the screws. That is held on by long plastic clips, covering the screws that hold the front on.
Hope that helps.

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 parts can be ordered from the Panasonic authorized parts rep. You have to contact Panasonic for details.

I strongly recommend to have any work on a microwave oven done professionaly. There are radiation leakage issues if the door is not re-assembled properly. After doing any service the microwave oven must be tested for radiation leaks. I doubt that you have the radiation testing equipment to make sure that there are no leaks.

Clean the inside glass


Normally 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) here.

Dirty Door Glass inside the choke - how do I clean it?


Its very hard to take apart the doors They normally have a lot of screws. May have a plastic snap on cover that's covering them up. Some of them are even sealed and can not be taken apart.

Anytime you work on a door you must check it with a microwave leakage meter. The door has metal gaskets and a screen that blocks the microwaves upsetting them will cause it to leak.

This is not a do it yourself repair.

Cleaning the door insides


The door should come apart with a little prying. Be careful because the plastic can break fairly easy. You can look at this description to see what pieces are involved. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=503590
