Kenmore micro broken glass door

2 posts in this topic

My Kenmore microwave with convection,(model # 721.89972590) has a broken glass door.   The outer glass on the door broke into a thousand pieces when bumped (?safety glass).  The inner glass and seal are intact as is a black metal sheild with thousands of small round holes which is located between the two glass layers.  Can I replace this outer glass with standard/safety glass or is it some other special type of glass that blocks microwaves.  My wife does not want to turn nuclear green.  Replacement part costs $160 and I am cheap (but not easy).  The microwave oven is 10 years old but works like new and costly to replace with the convection option.

Use only the OEM glass from the manufacturer if you do not want to fry your delicate body parts.
