Kenmore Microwave--cracked outer plastic door
From just about 4 years of use our Kenmore microwave (Model#721.80039700) has developed a crack ON THE PLASTIC PORTION OF THE DOOR ONLY from the lower right hand corner of the glass down to the edge (see pic).
I've done a little research and it seems that as long as the door seal and glass are intact (they seem to be) it is still safe to use. I've ordered a tester to see if it's emitting anything and we are not using the oven until it's been tested.
is there a replacement part for this in case things aren't okay? I can't seem to find it on this site...

Thanks Jeff. I was also thinking of just replacing the whole door assembly. It's double the price of the panel but supposedly a lot easier. What do you think?
