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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
