    I have a over the stove microwave hood that has gotten colored
    moisture between the glass on the microwave door. Boiling brats in
    beer and the exhaust fan didn't do a very good job of exhausting the
    steam. I know it is just a cosmetic issue, but I am thinking of
    selling the house and it might be a little distracting to potential
    buyers to see little patches in between the glass door. Are there any
    easy ways to clean this out or do I have to try and find a new door or
    even a new microwave hood assembly? Thanks for any info provided.

    You could get a new door from the manufacture, but you will have to make
    sure you do a radiation test to make sure that it seals properly when
    shut. It would be best to have the manufacture rep change the door.

    Also, considering the incredible amount of money you will get for the
    house in relation to the cost of a microwave oven, you can sell it with
    a new microwave oven installed. The may even make the kitchen more
    likeable to the new buyer. That is what I would do.

  3. Can the door be dismantled?

    Usually the door can be taken apart, just make sure you don't leave out the
    metal screen when you put it back together.
     
  5. Yeah, if you leave the screen out and stand too close to the window you can
    get a nice sun burn from it.

    Joking aside, like James said it should be pretty straight foward if you can
    figure out how to take the door apart. Looking at mine I'd guess that it
    pops apart. Look for screws and if you don't see any take a small flat
    screwdriver and pry gently around the entire door. If it has some difficult
    spots look for screws under labels.

    A lot of times you must remove the overall cover for the top, sides
    and bottom to get at the screws for the door hinges.

    A lot of times you must remove the overall cover for the top, sides
    You don't really have to get to the door hinges to take the door apart, well
    not usually.
