Whirlpool model WMH53520CS Serial # TR55179656 door glass shattered while not in use 10/16/2018
Exploding glass shards 10 feet out. Fortunately nobody was in front of the over oven wall mounted microwave at time glass shattered or they would have been blinded or severely cut on the face due to mounting hight at head level. After the glass shattered it continued dropping glass on the oven top thus raising the risk of glass being dropped in food if being prepared on stove.
