Do you have a can of compressed air (duster) or an air compressor? That would be SO much easier...

Otherwise, you normally 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.

LG door panel separating


DO NOT use this microwave in the current condition it is in- please! Although microwaves do not emit ionizing radiation, it does emit non-ionizing radiation and electromagnetic fields- and there is a lot of research studies being done possibly linking microwave exposure to cancer.
If your microwave is in that bad a shape, bring it to an authorized microwave repair shop or junk it and buy a new one.

How do you remove Whirlpool microwave mh7140x door to replace white plastic door face?


If you are referring to the disassembly and replacement of the door, just follow these steps:
1. Open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. On some microwaves, you may have to remove the upper grill cover over the door (if equipped) to accommodate door removal. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

NOTE: Some doors have a hinge pin that needs to be removed, or screws holding the door in place at the hinge.


2. On MOST microwave ovens, all you have to do is remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The panel is pressed in place and can be removed by using a small screwdriver or putty knife and carefully insert along the seam of the inner panel to release the clips that hold it in place so you can pry the plastic up. Work your way slowly around the perimeter of the glass to pop the panel loose. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that shields you from harmful RF radiation.

3. With the inner panel removed, locate the door handle screws and remove with a screwdriver.

4. The panel glass should be "sandwiched" in place (double layer on most ovens) and should either lift out, or have retaining clips holding in place. Remove and set aside.

5. The remaining piece(s) comprise the door frame. Replace as necessary.

REASSEMBLY: Re-insert the panel glass, followed by the inner door panel, gradually working your way around the perimeter of the door glass to ensure it snaps back into place and seats properly.


There are several parts sources available that you can use to purchase replacement parts:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites on the list also offer helpful exploded view parts listings to aid in parts identification and location. Just type in your model number and locate the parts listing for the door. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this advice is helpful.

Own Whirlpool Microwave oven Model MH6141XKQ. How does one clean the "inside" glass of the door. By inside, I mean between the two glasses on the door.


You will need to remove the door and take the door apart to clean between the glass. This process is not that difficult. Just follow these steps:

1. Open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges to remove from oven.

2. Place the door, face down on a soft surface to protect the door and glass. A layer of towels on a countertop or table is recommended.

3. Remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The panel is pressed in place and can be removed by using a small screwdriver or putty knife and carefully insert along the seam of the inner panel. Work your way slowly around the perimeter of the glass to release the clips that hold it in place so you can pry the plastic up and pop the panel loose. Use care not to pry against the glass.

4. With the inner panel removed, the glass should be easily accessible and can be carefully lifted out and cleaned. Clean with a good non-streaking glass cleaner.

Make sure you remember how the door is assembled as you take it apart. If you forget, the following webistes have illustrated parts listings to show how your door is assembled:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
