Condensation in door glass of GE XL1800 microwave

We have a GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 microwave and there seems to be condensation in between the glass on the door. I can't wipe
it from the inside or the outside. It goes away overnight, but should I be concerned about a broken seal or leakage? Appears to happen
when steam is rising from the cooktop.

Your ventilation seals may be aging, but they have nothing to do with microwave energy leakage, (And microwave energy is not ionizing radiation anyway, so it does not cause cellular mutation or cancer)

You should check your grease filters (if you are venting to the outside) or your charcoal filter (if recirculating).

If you are venting outside, check your outside vent flap for proper operation, and check your outlet and ductwork for a bird's nest or mouse nest, etc.

If you have other questions, feel free to contact me directly, because FixYa doesn't always notify us when there are follow-ups.

SOURCE: condensation betwejn the front door glass

This would require disassembly of the door panels, which is not recommended unless really required.

You can download the installation guide to help you troubleshoot and correct your venting issues. That should be priority one.

It may be a clogged filter, a bird's nest in the outlet, etc. etc. Failure to vent can cause control panel and keypad trouble if it continues.

SOURCE: Broken handle on GE Spacemaker XL1800 microwave

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.

SOURCE: My Ge SpaceMaker XL1800 Microwave Oven won't power on any more.

1.Check power outlet for working.
2.If it is than you have broken fuse inside the m/w.
3. To change the fuse you have to disconnect the power to m/w, take the upper grill off, take the screw on top of control panel, lift the control panel up and removed. The 20 Am fuse located behind this panel.

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.

Condensation inbetween glass door on GE Spacemaker

Your glass seal has failed and I doubt it makes sense to replace the door. Yes, it can be dangerous as the moisture becomes worse you risk the chance the glass could over-heat and blow out. Sounds like you need to replace it, sorry!

Condensation marks on microwave door

For most microwaves the process is pretty straightforward. You can open the door and you will see the screws that hold the outerinside panel on to the glass. After you remove those screws you will see the screws that hold the ouside cover to the door in place. Once you get that far you will see what is holding the glass in place. Keep in mind to replace the gaskets around the glass right and anything you take off to get to the glass itself. If you are getting condensation from range top cooking then the seal around the glass may need to be replaced. You really cannot hurt anything by taking it apart, but it needs to be put back together exactly the way you take it apart. Good luck and hope this helped.
