  • The glass tray had a hairline crack or stress fracture that was not visible
  • It got a little too hot in one area
  • The expansion from the heat caused the fracture to expand and therefore crack and break
An accidental bumping of the microwave plate on the countertop while going from the microwave to the dishwasher might set up the above situation. The spoon your seven year old left in the mac and cheese might have arced and nicked a small piece of the glass. Whatever the cause, microwave trays break and they break for a lot of reasons.

All foods cooked in the microwave produce heat. Microwaves themselves are not hot, but the foods cooked in a microwave get hot - some much hotter than others.
Even though most microwave glass trays are tempered, they are not designed to hold up under high temperatures. You will see most microwave trays stamped with the words "For microwave oven use only" This is to let us know that it's probably not a good idea to use the trays in a conventional oven.
Any air pockets, cracks or gaps in the glass can enlarge under heat. Since glass isn't very receptive to being stretched, breakage can occur.

SOURCE: glass continually shattering on combination neff oven

That's a huge gap.

You might ask their customer service people to authorize the replacement of the whole door or the glass and the inner door panel where the gap is.

If they won't help you, you could clean it thoroughly, then carefully caulk the gap with high temperature caulk.

Glass turntable in tricity tmc209 says "microwave only" What do I use for convection or combi cooking? Does turntable still need to rotate for convection cooking?

definately dont use the standard glass plate for convectional 'oven' cooking, as it will shatter. i have had TWO plates shatter so far before realising they should only be used for microwave cooking.

The inner door glass shattered and now no power

There's a safty switch which prevents the unit from operating if the door isn't fully closed. When the glass shattered a small piece may have blocked the switch from operating properly. Check around the door seals for any irregularities.

The glass plate in my microwave shattered and I need to get a new one.

Go to "sears.com", click on "Parts Direct", another page will be displayed, enter you model number (usually found just inside door of microwave), select cabinet and you should see your glass plate listed, scroll down to required number and then you will see the part number. Copy and paste that number into search engine and look for best price or just buy from sears

I WAS UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THE GLASS TURNTABLE WAS TEMPERED GLASS, 2 MINS IN A COOKING PROCESS IT SHATTERED. THE MODLE IS MW8115SS

Even tempered glass can shatter. It could have been a factory defect, or a small crack that had gone unnoticed until now. The glass is supposed to be durable, but it does happen from time to time. I found a replacement tray at repairclinic.com for $42. You can search by your model number or use item number 1174113. This was the only site that I could fins that carried the part for your oven. I hope this is helpful to you.
