Hi, we removed a thick piece of plastic thinking it was supposed to be taken off the inside door of our microwave. Now the door has visable splatter and I'm not sure if door can be taken apart to clean it . Also was wondering if there's anyway to get another splatter shield from the company? Oh, and the door front fogs up, probably from removing the splatter shield? Any help would be greatly appreciated
we "inherited" a Panasonic 1250W Genius Sensor microwave that the waveguard (protective plastic film on inside of the door) was removed. There are splatters on the inside glass which need to be cleaned. I am sure there is a way to take the door apart to clean, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know how to do this?
Do a google for how to clean a microwave door and it shows you how to take the screen off and clean it. I have same problem with a brand new Frigidaire--splatters between screen and door--looks bad! and I contacted company and they said call a service tech! I can't afford to!!!

Re: removed splatter shield
The parts can be ordered from the Panasonic authorized parts rep. You have to contact Panasonic for details.
I strongly recommend to have any work on a microwave oven done professionaly. There are radiation leakage issues if the door is not re-assembled properly. After doing any service the microwave oven must be tested for radiation leaks. I doubt that you have the radiation testing equipment to make sure that there are no leaks.

That mesh is there to protect the user and acts as a shield to contain microwave energy to the cooking compartment. Never compromise that material.. You can purchase replacment liners at this site http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5130353 If you prefer, you can get a thin piece or sheet plastic cut to fit at many local hardware stores or home centers..You may want to make a paper template or take accurate measurements with you for that method.. Hope this helps you..
THE DOOR ON MY MAYTAG MICROWAVE OVEN HAS A SCREEN OVER IT. I HAVE SOME FOOD SPATTERS THAT PENETRATED THE SCREEN AND I CAN'T CLEAN THE GLASS THAT THE SCREEN PROTECTS. HOW CAN I REMOVE THIS SCREEN TO CLEAN THE GLASS?
A LOUD ticking sound could very well be a High Voltage Arc. This is usually caused by a breakdown of insulation on High Voltage Wires, or components. It can also be arcing between the door frame and the cavity. Usually where the bottom of the cavity floor meets the door frame. Indication of this will be small areas on the door where it looks like the paint has been chipped off, but if you look close you will see it is small burned marks. Another area is the Splatter Shield located inside and at the top. It looks like a Plastic Cover. It is not plastic, but a fiber material. Grease, and food will get trapped on and under this Splatter Shield. Over a period of time the grease and food particles will break down from being cooked over and over again. They will then form Carbon. Which will Arc when Microwaves are present. Remove Push-Pins holding Splatter Shield. Clean by washing with dish detergent . If burned (arc) spots are still present after washing, replace Splatter Shield or arcing will continue. Once Carbon has burned through, it will continue to burn.
