Cleaning the interior of a GE microwave door completely may require removing the mesh screen from the glass portion of the door, especially if stains are located on the glass behind the screen. These screens are intended to be removed from the glass, though this is sometimes a difficult task.
The metal screen in a GE microwave oven is the primary method of preventing microwave radiation from escaping through the door during operation, so it is important to remove and replace the screen carefully when cleaning the door. The procedure for removing the screen from the door varies from model to model, but most screens are held to the glass by screws. A brush and paper clip can be used to remove food lodged in the glass screen, while standard glass cleaner is suitable for cleaning the glass itself.
