It depends on the make and model of oven. Mostly they fix differently.

How do you clean inbetween the oven glass door?


Hi,

To clean between you need to remove one of the pieces of glass...usually the inside is the best....

There are a few screws on the inside of the door theat hold the frame, which holds the inside glass...

remove the frame and carefully remove the inside glass... clean the inside of the outside glass, then clean the inside of the inside glass and then reinstall the froame over the inside glass...

Now you have a clean ove glass again...

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:

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

There are stains in between the glass on the door. How can I remove and clean this?


Hello :

Disassembling the door yourself will void the warranty and may require a service technician to repair any damage or put the door back together. It is recommended that a service technician complete this for you. It is not recommended that you disassemble the door yourself.

Things You Will Need:
Glass cleaner
Soft cloths
Glass stovetop cleaner
Steps to Remove the Glass:
Make an appointment with a service technician to remove the glass from the door.
Use glass cleaner to remove as much of the debris as possible.
For tougher stains and food debris, use a glass stovetop cleaner to aid with removal.
Once the stains and debris are removed, allow the service technician to reassemble the door.
 
Cleaning Through the Door Vents:

When the glass cannot be removed or is no longer covered by the warranty, there are other, more creative, ways that can be used to clean it.

Things You Will Need:
Long handled cleaner
Bottle brush
Yardstick/ruler wrapped in cloth
Bent hanger wrapped in cloth
Dryer vent brush
Glass cleaner
Soft cloths/towels/long socks
Duct tape (optional)
Steps to Clean Between the Glass:
Some Microwave ovens have small vents along the bottom or top of the door. These vents go in between the glass (and are likely part of the problem with other materials getting in there as well). By inserting a towel on a long-handled stick, you can gently clean between the glass without disassembling the door.First, find the vents on the door if you have them.
It may be easier to remove the door from the hinges and lay it flat on the floor. Many microwave oven doors simply lift right off of the hinges, others will require loosening a few screws first. Replacing the door should be easy to do at the end of the cleaning and will not void the warranty.
Start by choosing a long-handled cleaning tool. There are a variety of options available, so be creative.
Secure a towel or soft cloth (long socks work well) to the handle with duct tape or other strong tape. Make sure it’s well fastened so it doesn’t come off and become stuck in the door.
Moisten the towel or soft cloth with the window cleaner or other cleaning product.
Insert the cleaning tool through the vents.
Move the cloth back and forth to remove the debris from between the glass.
Remove the cloth.
Repeat with a clean cloth until all of the debris is gone.
Replace the door on the oven and enjoy the clear, clean view.

WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .

please rate !

How do I clean the inside glass on the door - GE Profile JVM1870


I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
Model 665.61639100
Anyway, good luck with this. Hope someone has an answer for you (and me).
Mine has a open slot on the top front of the door. Kinda like a double plate window execpt for the opening in front. Why is this there? I don't know. Weird design. But it leaves for the possibilty of liquid to splash in there leaving it hard to clean (like impossible).

I'm thinking I have to completely remove and disect the door.

Can't clean the inside of the glass door--the screen blocks it


Have to replace the door. You probably removed the protective plastic cover inside the unit intended to keep material from passing through the screen into the area where the glass is located. That was my problem. I thought the plastic was shipping material. My Bad! No way to clean the glass from the inside because they "never imagined" someone would remove the plastic cover.

Water has penetrated inside the door


Any water in between the glass and the door should evaporate eventually.
I wouldn't advise trying to open any seams in the door or removing the glass to get the water out as that would permanently damage your microwave.

Your models manual talks about steam/water condensation that gets trapped between the door and the glass and what to expect:

Glass front on door unglued


First: do not use this unit with the glass improperly installed. Often, these installations use double sided foam tape, available at any hardware store. Carefully remove the screws in the door being careful to catch the glass. Clean the area where the tape will go with glass cleaner or alcohol. Allow to dry and buff to remove oil and grease. Install the tape and glass. Reassemble.
