When I went to use microwave I discovered the inside glass completely shattered while nobody using it. The internal frame was also slightly buckled in one area. It looks as though the entire door needs to be replaced as it will never seal properly again. Where can I get a spare door and is it worth fixing? Have tried microwave which works ok, but may be unsafe to use in this condition.
Inner glass door has shattered on my Neff combi microwave oven (H7860SOGB/02; FD7507). How is it held in place? Appears to be an inner frame holding it in but no obvious screws or fixings. Is it pressure fitted and can I remove it and then refit?

Re: Microwave door shattered
This is not a job you should do. Microwaves are dangerous things and can cause injury. An improperly fitted door will leak. A new door, installed and checked out by a technician is needed here The economics are beyond my area.

The glass will break if the food being heated is not covered and fat/grease heats up to flash point on the glass or there is a cut in the glass or the food banged against the glass or the glass was stressed by an incorrectly fitting door.
A new door is possibly available or glass.
You have an expensive Monogram microwave so you can expect the parts to be expensive also. The outer glass assembly by itself ballpark cost is about $160 and requires a complete dis-assembly of the door to replace since the screws are all inside. Then if you go by the book--- the door should be checked for microwave leakage after the repair which requires a special test meter. They also sell a complete door assembly at around $300 that comes completely assembled. You need to compare that cost against the age of your microwave and possibly a new unit which I think is still available. Either way its not a cheap fix.
your microwave door allows you to quickly clean out any accumulated
food or grease. This also makes it easy to get to all the crumbs and
debris around the door hinges. While you have the door off its hinges,
examine the plastic panel and glass window for signs of damage. Make
sure you install a replacement door that is designed for your brand of
microwave to ensure that it will fit correctly.

a workbench or sturdy table. For cabinet-mounted microwaves, pry off
the decorative grills or front panels and remove the mounting screws.
You should then be able to slide the microwave out of its mounting
the microwave door and remove the glass tray. Use a flathead
screwdriver or putty knife to pry off the plastic cover on the inside
of the door. Work around the edge of the glass until the cover slips free.
the door by pulling the mounting pins out of the hinges at the top and
bottom. You may need an assistant to steady the door so you can have
both hands free to work with the pins.
Lisa, I do not have a solution, but have the same problem. My KA superba micro has been used about 10 times. While it was off, and while no one was home, the outer glass in the door shattered. I suspect this may be a defect.
then Ill include this link as well, which is apart breakdown for your GENERAL oven, and i do this so you can see the different panes of glass( ther are 4 of them inthe oven door, each one different so ordering hte right one will be half the battle. http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208186032.pdf
