    Thanks so much for your advice and for responding so quickly. I called GE and the microwave oven is still under the service agreement/warranty. I scheduled a repairman to come fix it for me so we should be up and running again soon.

    Depending on the model number, you may only be able to order the entire door from the manufacturer. Please post back with your brand and model number, so I can give you a more accurate recommendation.

Shouldn't be difficult or expensive to replace. However, I would recommend that you get a professional to do this, as an improperly fitted glass shield could cause radiation damage from microwaves and could prove hazardous.
I don't think this will be covered by a warranty, but I recommend you get in touch with the point of purchase or th manufacturer for further information.
Hope that helps..

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.

The inner door glass shattered and now no power


There's a safty switch which prevents the unit from operating if the door isn't fully closed. When the glass shattered a small piece may have blocked the switch from operating properly. Check around the door seals for any irregularities.

Glass continually shattering on combination neff oven


That's a huge gap.

You might ask their customer service people to authorize the replacement of the whole door or the glass and the inner door panel where the gap is.

If they won't help you, you could clean it thoroughly, then carefully caulk the gap with high temperature caulk.

GE Microwave/Convection Oven - Door Glass Just Exploded!!!


This happened to us 3 weeks ago with our 3 year old Kitchenaid microwave. Several hours after its last use it just shattered. In doing research I discovered that this has also happend with GE microwaves, all 3 years old. The cause seems to have been a batch of defective glass supplied by a third party. Whirlpool was very quick to cover the cost of the replacement, even though our microwave was out of warrantee.

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

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 that demonstrates how it's done.
