Clean between mesh and glass on microwave door

I have a whirlpool MH1150XMB2 and I can't figure out how to clean the splatter between the mesh and the glass.

    When I moved into my new home, the microwave (Whirlpool Model MX6150XHQ-1) had a buildup between the mesh and the glass in the door. It is so unsightly. How can I remove it?

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) that demonstrates how it's done.

Can't clean the microwave glass because there is a mesh glued to it.

The mesh is required to prevent microwave radiation from escaping through the front of the unit. This should never be removed. You should be able to wipe clean the mesh with a damp soapy cloth. Make sure all internal areas are dry before using the machine.

Cannot clean the inside door between glass and mesh - any ideas?

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.

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.

Dirty Door Glass inside the choke - how do I clean it?

Its very hard to take apart the doors They normally have a lot of screws. May have a plastic snap on cover that's covering them up. Some of them are even sealed and can not be taken apart.

Anytime you work on a door you must check it with a microwave leakage meter. The door has metal gaskets and a screen that blocks the microwaves upsetting them will cause it to leak.

This is not a do it yourself repair.
