Question about Frigidaire GLMV169 Microwave Oven
That is a bit tricky, because if the hinge is allowed to get loose, microwave energy leakage can occur, which can lead to arcing and possible fire.
I would say to pull out the remaining screw and match it up at a hardware store, but that may make the hinge too loose to stay in place.
So only do that if you can totally immobilize the door. Duct tape comes to mind.... ;)
One other option is to try a few different sizes in the open hole without removing the remaining screw.
Try 6-32, 8-32, and 10-24 by about 1/4" to 1/2" long. You may also want to try similar metric sizes. When you find one that fits, you can apply some Loctite, insert it fully. Then remove, Loctite and reinsert the remaining screw. If you want, you can use nail polish instead of Loctite.
The three service manuals that cover these models are here, but they don't have part numbers for the screws:
