After reading all who did a simular repair, I was better prepaired for what to expect before my wife and I bagan to take apart the oven door. It may help or hinder if you had extra help. At least two people and no wittnesses for intertainment.
Consider paying to have it done if your not willing to attempt to repair the oven door glass from this poorly designed door and its componets.
I wish we had a video camera to record the repair due to all the steps involved.
For the most part, all internal parts float together and only the most inside sheet of glass is screwed down.
You will need a work table to place the door on, scewdrivers, penatrent spray, cleaning solution and rags or towels.
After removing the door from the stove, just by opening the door slightly and lifting upward evenly, the door will come off the stove with its hinges attached.
With the door front facing up, and handle off the work table so door lays flat, we removed the screws along the bottom of the door.
With the screws removed, the bottom strip comes off. A strip on each side may now drop off.
This will allow you to lift the bottom end of the panel just enough to detach it from the clips that hold it on the top end. Theres one on each side.
The 2 fixed clips go inside slots of the door panel.
It may take a little tugging back and forth, up and down to remove the panel.
There are side strips by now will come off now too.
Once this panel is out of the way, you can remove each piece. Remember the order and record if you can.
The glass that was broke is secured by screws that may require some spray penatrant to loosen.
Make sure you use a perfectly fitting screwdriver as to not strip out the screw heads.
Carefully remove all broken pieces of glass than vacuum the surrounding area.
Clean all glass panels with glass cleaner and paper towels or newspaper.
With the heat gasket in its proper place, install trim with a new glass panel and return each piece in the order you removed them.
Make sure everything is returned to its proper position before you re attach the inside door panel. It may require a little effort to align everything together to accomplish this.
Return the door to the oven by inserting the door hindges into the door slots and you are done!
Sit down, have a cocktail and ask yourself if it was worth the trouble. I thought it was.
