Question about Thermador MBBS Microwave Oven

Inside front of oven door is a water build-up

It looks like a smudge on the front glass of the oven door but looking closer it seems like something is behind the glass on the front of the oven door.  Is there any way to remove glass to clean this????

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

    You need to remove the choke cover, then remove screws to take apart the layers of door screen / door glass of the door.

    Did you take out the screws?

I need a microwave wave guild cover


Connie, look inside to see if something metallic is in the oven, like aluminum foil. Sparks should not be present. Also remove the grate/shelf if there is one and check under the turntable for metallic pieces. Actually take the turntable out. Test using a glass of water. 1/2 min on high, water should get warm

Steam got inside door of microwave behind glass. Now there are white spots where water dried. How do I clean the inside?


Look and see if there are screws holding the inside of the door to the outside of the door.
If so, remove the screws and the door should come apart, and may be cleaned.
God bless your efforts.

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.

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:

Microwave door has burn spots on the glass of the door...


The brown spots are usually grease / smoke deposits. Usually there are indeed two sheets of glass in the door. If the grease is not arcing or smoking, and the metal screen / mesh (that blocks microwave leakage) is not damaged, then it's likely better left alone. It might be useful to boil a few cups of water with a little vinegar inside the microwave to help dissolve the deposits. In case you want to take it apart, I have attached a photo from a similar model that illustrates disassembly of the door. It is not necessary or advisable to remove the door or hinges when disassembling the door.
