I am replacing the glass on my microwave. The glass shattered when the oven, below, was put on clean. The double-back tape that held the glass onto the front panel was a real challenge to remove. I use paint stripper, lacquer thinner and finally a heat gun and a chisel. The last combo took a majority off. I then went back with the lacquer thinner and WD-40 which got the rest. What a mess! If I had known what a problem it would be, I would have just bought the whole panel assembled. Anyway I am at the point where I am ready to attach the new glass onto the stainless steel panel. Can someone help me on the proper adhesive? I have auto trim double-back tape, but I was wondering if silicon RTV would be better. I am not sure if the old bonding method was the cause of the problem or not. If anyone has a solution I would appreciate your input.

Hi
Yes a silicon RTV should do the job - make sure that it is high temperature.
oven glue kit is a kit available in the UK suited to gluing glass into ovens. Otherwise look out for a high temperature silicon.
