I did not take the door off the oven, i dissassbled it in place. all the visible screws on the door have to be removed. The "vent" air diflector or what ever it is , between the upper and lower doors has to come off also to access the screws that hold the front of the door on. The only confussion i had was the bracket that holds the third layer of glass. I forgot that it is held on with the same bracket/screws that hold the secound layer on.

unscrewed the oven door, took off the entire door, pulled apart the glass pieces and replaced
I found some of the feedback posted on this site very helpful. Taking photos as I went along was also very helpful in remembering how to put it back together. There are several over-lapping pieces to the door and you have to be careful to put things back together in the correct order. Lining up the screw holes on the hinges with the door is also a little tricky.
XLarge pizza tray in a 450 degree oven - slam the door & CRACK. Replacement glass arrived on Saturday - VERY FAST DELIVERY. Placed 2 allen wrenches in both hinges - open the door half way & lift up. Place the door on a towel. Removed 6 screws, lift & seperated the inner oven covering, removed the broken glass & cleaned inside & replaced with new glass. More time was spent cleaning & coming up with a tool to fit into the hinge
1) Look for the part at partselect.com, make sure you have the model and part number ready. Once you find the part, don't order yet. 2) Start your do-it-yourself repair by removing the oven door. On each side below are two arms/hinges, look closely and you will find locks on each side. Use your finger or flat screwdriver to slide towards you (this is where you start clicking your camera in evey step). Once you did it, wiggle the door a little bit, make sure they're unlocked, then pull it out carefully and hold it tight since it's little heavy. 3) At this point, you only need the phillips screwdriver. Look for all the screws, and unscrew it all, one step at a time (again make use of your digital camera). Remove the parts one at a time until you take out the broken inner glass. Measure it against the dimensions shown in the partselect.com. At this point you feel comfortable putting it back in-reverse, then you order the part. It took me 3 days for the part to arrive, but it's no big deal. 4) It's a bit difficult for me the first time, I can't figure out how to put them back (that's why I recommended the digital camera), plus I have to clean the inside and the other two glasses so it took me 1-2 hrs. I assure you if you follow my instructions, 15-30 minutes max, no sweat. 5) My wife promised me $300 for the labor (competitive price), I'm still waiting though.....Good Luck
I ordered the part online and after recieving it I downloaded the manual from kitchenaid online and it explain exactly how to replace this part and I followed the instructiones and it worked with not too much difficult . It took me about an hour between reeding the instructions and doing the job itself
opened door and secured the open position with a 3/8 allen wrench through the hole at the base of the support arm. (small bolt or other round, short object can be used). This locks the door in a 75% open position. Locking the door open allows easy lift and removal. Six screws and the door is apart. Clean and reassemble.
I just removed the door and change the glass. Really easy.
