How do I clean the inside glass on the door - I have some splashes on the inside glass on the door and there is the black mesh guard covering it making it impossible to clean. Any help or tips greatly appreciated.
OK, I'm no handy man and I just figured out how to do this. Open the door and remove the black plastic cover surrounding the inside glass. I used a regular flat head screw driver to pop this out.
Now I removed the 3 screws holding the inner panel against the glass on the front door. After removing the screws, the inner panel is held in place by a series of plastic clips. Go around the perimeter and pop the plastic clips out so the inner panel including the mesh comes out of the door.
Now you have complete access to clean the inside of the glass door!
I found it easier to do this operation with the door completely off the microwave, but you should be able to do this with the door in place too.
As I have a small walk in like Kitchen I put the steamer so it was putly under it & noted after some time that my Microware over had steam between the two sheets of glass on the door is it unsafe to use?. it is a samsung C106 model can an one help, I did think for a hundred pounds to be safe & buy only from Argos as it is only a hundred best to be safe then sorry timothy cambridge

That mesh is the door screen which prevents microwave leakage. It must be intact or replaced, or a fire hazard exists.
You can order Dacor parts by part number from
That is normally caused by the clear plastic adhesive cover either having been removed or missing. It covers the perforated door inner and stops condensation and food particles from getting inside the door cavity where is cannot be cleaned.
The metal mesh is a filter screen to keep the microwaves in the oven while letting you see the food. The plastic sheet that's peeling off is meant to keep that screen clean. It's not supposed to be removed, since then food can get into the holes in the screen. A buildup of foods can lead to overheating and burn the paint and possibly damage the door. It should be replaced.
The part number is WB36X10068. A Google search turned up several sources. Here's one, but there are others. The new sheet has the adhesive applied, you just peel off the protective film and stick it in place. Clean the door inner surface first so the new sheet will stick firmly.
Good luck with the repair, and thanks for using Fixya!
Unfortunately it is not possible to do this without dismantling the door. The mesh is very important for containing microwave energy in the oven cavity. If the door is dismanteled it is important not to damage the mesh and to have the oven tested for possible leakage after it has been re assembled.
I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
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.
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.
That clear cover (sometimes called the inner door screen) is very important.
It protects the metal mesh / screen from debris and corrosion. The metal screen allows you to see "what's cooking" (*grin*) but prevents microwaves from leaking out of the door due to the precise size of the openings in the mesh.
If the mesh rusts or gets grease or food on it, it can arc, and this can damage the screen, then microwaves can leak, causing a burn or fire hazard. (No "radiation" threat, though)
If no arcing or other damage has occurred yet, you can clean the area squeaky with alcohol, then dry it completely and use the smallest possible amount of clear Scotch tape or packing tape to cover the tear and make sure it's flat.
If this fix doesn't work, or it's too big an area, you will have to replace the sheet, which can be ordered.
You'd have to heat it up with a hair dryer, peel it off slowly, then clean the area with something like acetone, then peel and stick the new one.
If you need to or prefer to order it, I would need your brand and model number to help you further.

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.
