First...record, film....something while dismantling oven door. This all started due to cleaning the interior glass. Had to hire a repairman to put door back together...I lapsed in remembering where one clamp ( outside the door) went. $200 later door is reassembled and CLEAN...but the glass moved. So called back repairman. In the process of debating with him re: the glass movement...I hit the glass piece on the corner and it shattered .. My fault...I ordered a new glass piece for at least 1/2 the cost repairman quoted and preceded to repair. I took pictures to remind me of proper placement of screws and clamps....put back together and guess what glass does not shift!! Being a woman...I am very proud of myself.. Just remember to document your steps and you will be fine.

I lifted the door from the oven. I reviewed the break down of the parts. The only tool needed was a screw driver to disassemble the door. I stacked each part in the order it was removed and replaced them in reverse order. PS, I cleaned the old glass before it was reinstalled it.

Broke inside glass by touching it while hot with wet rag

first you have to remove door, so open door all the way, pull back the lever on each hinge, then close door all the way, it will be able to be pulled straight out then, but be careful, its a heavy sucker. I layed a blanket out on table and layed door on blanket, start by taking out screws around the edges of door, keep these in separate container.(don't lose any). now you need to separate the door in half, this can be a lil difficult, mine had grease build up on one end that I had to be scraped . pay special attention to how the brackets go and how the door comes apart, this info will be needed later, now that door is in half, you will need to start taking the 2 other layers of glass out, please pay attention how you take apart, it has to be replaced exactly right. take pics if needed. when you get to the broken glass, take out carefully, and place glass over opening, centered well. now you have to start replacing the other layers, the replaced broken glass is kept in place by pressure, once you get the other glass layers in do not lift up door, you will need to put in the screws under the door, one of which tightens the hinge base to the door, these are the screws that tighten the replaced glass, I found this out the hard way and had to undo the whole thing again to recenter the glass, once tight, just keep going backwards replacing the other half of door. once you do this you will either say, wow that stunk, or wow that was easier than I thought. if you don't have patience, then take the door and glass to a repair shop, because you are dealing with 3 pieces of glass costing 50.00 each. be smart.

Turned off circuit breaker. Unscrewed two screws, although they required a square tipped screwdriver insert which I fortunately had phone estimates for this job were between $150 - $180. Could not have been easier.

Inner glass was broken on my oven door.

After a couple hours of frustration, I finally called the repair man and had it fixed properly. All the instructions I got from the the various websites didn't really address my model. Just getting the door off the over (with my type of lock) was a challenge. It is really important to have the proper tools for this job and I didn't have them. Live and learn.

Oven locked and heated up, we then shut of the breaker. After resetting the breaker the oven would not turn on.

I ordered it from PartSelect one evening and had the replacement glass one day later. It was the quickest service I have ever experienced. Now, I can continue to use my microwave. Thanks for such great & timely service.

Spilled liquid on hot door glass

Hardest part was getting the oven door off. Since I bought this house with oven already in place, I had no owner's manual. Tried to get it off with tips found on this site, no go. Went online and found the manual which said to insert allen wrench in holes in hinge, then lift up FROM THE BOTTOM. That is the key. Got door off, then found that replacing the inner glass is a multi step process that starts with the outside door, then multiple brackets to the next inside glass, then more braces to next glass, then finally you are at the broken (inside) glass.My advice would be to take pictures on cell phone or whatever of each level, so you know what goes where when you put it all back. I figured it out but would be faster with a picture. Anyway, got all together and the oven works fine, door looks great!.

We have double wall ovens and each one only had a single oven rack in it. After 3+ years, I was tired of dealing with the issue so I ordered two new racks from PartSelect. They came quickly and fit perfectly. All I had to do was open the box, remove the rack and slide it into the oven. No muss, no fuss. Why didn't I do this years ago??

Remove racks before self-cleaning

Similar to another customer, the racks were not removed before self-cleaning. The issue was that I AM THE HUSBAND and I admit that I did it. Ooops. Great price and if I do it again, I will go back to parts select to get a replacement.
