Microwave door shattered

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?

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.

Replace outside 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.

I need to replace the light bulb in my whirlpool self-cleaning oven but I can not remove the glass cover. How do I remove it?


hello,

Here is a solution to go about the glass bellow

Removing 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.

  • Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet and move your microwave onto 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 bracket.
  • 2 Open 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.
  • 3 Remove 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.

  • hope this solution help?

    Thanks for visiting fixya.

    Kitchen Aid microwave door -- outer glass


    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.

    KitchenAid Built-in microwave middle glass shattered


    not a problem, first you can refer to your user manual as to how to remove door, (pg 21) heres a link if you misplaced it.
    http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%204456573.pdf

    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
    the numbers after you model example, kemc308kss** (01,02,03,04) these last 2 digits will also determine which glass you actually have

    http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?searchTerm=kemc308kss&siteCd=WHRCOM
    Once the door is off and you have the correct glass, changing the glass is nothing more then reomving screws from the door frame, layer by layer until you get to the broken pane, not real difficult at all
