1. Open door and place a nail in the small circle in each of the two side hinges. This step is crucial. It keeps the hinges from springing back into the oven when the door is removed.

2. Remove the 2 screws on the oven door at the top of each spring. Close the door until stopped by the 2 nails, then lift the door up and off the hinges.

3. Lay the door on a soft surface(some oven parts may be greasy), inside of the door face up, and remove the 5 screws holding the main two halves of the door together. Remove the top piece.

4. Remove the 4 screws that are under the insulation strips. This will damage the strips, but there is no other way. Just try to keep as much of the strip as you can.

5. Continue removing screws and layers of glass (ours had 3 inner layers)until you reach the inner most piece.

6. Replace the broken glass and then reverse the process to put everything back together.

Notes: We work slowly and methodically, so the whole process took us over an hour but we also took this opportunity to really clean every crack and crevasse that is normally hidden. All in all this was not a very hard job and worth doing it as a DYI project instead of calling a repair person.
