I removed the oven door by lifting it off with the hinges. Disassembled the door parts one at time making sure I remember where I removed the screws until I am able to get to the broken glass. The most difficult part is making sure that the insulation strip & the gasket stayed in place after I replaced the broken glass & doing the reverse process of installing the parts together. Relatively easy process as long as you remember where the parts go. When in doubt, I had to refer to the pictorial of the disassembled door shown on your website.

First, layed tape across all broken glass to keep glass from shattering more and releasing more bits of glass. Pull up and out the oven door. Had table set aside covered with an old sheet to lay door on, After laying door on table, Removed outer screws. Needed phillips #2 & #3 tip widths and electric screwdriver, for inner screws that where difficult to remove. Making notes of what came off first! ( (rt & left, bottom,/top) when removing metal frame braces, and in what order they go in when reassembled . Did the same with screws & set them aside in groups. Then marked the groups of screws. Removed the metal door panel. Carefully removed the in between panel of glass. Set Outer glass aside along with metal "door"and inner door glass,and proped them up in a safe place. Carefully removed the broken & shattered inside glass wearing rubber gloves. Had a garbage can next to the table to with news paper to wrap glass. Cleaned area. Replaced glass taking care not to tighted screws so much as to break the glass. Put added insulation.(Whcih was not the same as in diagram), around the edge. put back the inner glass panel, care not to leave prints, tighten screw ( care not to break glass) Cleaned the door sides and bottom, all had alot of grease buildup.Put back the metal door portion. Cleaned the outer glass door front and back. Being careful not to break it (or leave prints inside). Replaced the side and bottom metal frames. Wiped it down and put door back on stove.
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.
repair was easy except one part drove me nuts... when putting every thing bacck together i found out that the front glass panel sits on top of the side covers of the door ...looking at the side covers you would think they fit over the top of the front glass...not so the glass edges show and are not covered ... hope this helps someone else
I let my husband fix this one, so he can tell you about it!Step one--remove the oven door and place on a padded surface to protect both the door and the surface (table top).Step 2--remove the screws holding the outer door panel in place.Step 3--remove the screws holding the middle door panel.Step 4--remove the middle panel of glass then the screws holding the spacer and inner panel of glass.Step 5--carefully remove the (remains of the) inner panel of glass.Step 6--replace the inner panel of glass and make sure both sides are clean.Step 7--reinstall the items removed (in reverse order).Step 8--replace the oven door onto the range.
The easy part is removing the oven door and reinserting the oven door. Disassembly of the door was straight forward enough by removing the screws from the attached bottom plates. Separating the inner door from the out door was quite the pain. Once accomplished I was surprised to learn that the outer glass pane was not attached but free floating inside the door frame. Also the outside aluminum frame that the outer glass pane laid over was also unattached and free sliding in betwwen the inner and oute door. Getting this back into place then laying the free floating glass pane and keeping it positioned prior to re assembly of the inner and outter door was a tad nightmarish. The actual removal of the brackets to remove the inner broken glass plane was very easy. This is where a good drill or power screw driver comes in handy. Once the brackets holding the glass were removed, you take the broken glass out, put the new in, then reattach that glass pane with the brackets.Hat's off to those who did this whole project in 1/2 hr or less. It was a solid 2.5 hrs of time for me and my wife and I can't say that we drew closer together on this project. Actually a wall of separation started to develop between us until with God's help we finally got the whole door back together and in the oven. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might when you start to take on this project. Amen
Never repaired an oven before, I just used a screwdriver and went slowly taking this over door apart to replace this glass. I just took piece by piece apart until the glass came out and retraced my steps to install the new glass. Sure glad I did this myself, a new convection oven stove would easily set me back 1,500.00 and......save a bundle on service call fees.
Removed the door just like you would do when cleaning the oven; I placed the door on a blanket on the kitchen table and carefully disassembled the door. There were more parts than I expected so keeping track of where everything went was important. I might add that without the use of my cordless variable speed drill motor removal of some of the screws would have been difficult. Adding the weight of the drill motor with sufficient push power I was able to tap the switch which "snapped" the screw loose. Don't think I could have done it with a hand type screw driver without stripping the head. Knowing your tools is very important.
Read all others' directions and suggestions. Screw loosening spray was essential to remove the bracket holding the broken piece. Print out the blow-up showing parts from website. Read directions on removing and replacing door in original manual. Lay oven door on counter top front side up with hinges hanging over edge. I prefer a manual screwdriver - less risk of stripping screws. Start by removing screws at bottom edge. Next, side strips and then top piece with handle. Removing layers, being careful to keep them in order and turned the right way. Note the center piece of glass is held in place only by the parts around it so everything has to be tight and aligned. Put back together in reverse order with replacement glass part. My 10+ year old oven is as good as new. BTW I am a 67 year old woman.
Pulled the oven door out. Took the whole door apart and put it back together. The first time I put it back together the inner glass was still loose so I had to take it apart again and figure out how to hold everything together tightly. Your part was perfect. The glass was exactly the same as two others in the oven door. I wish I had instructions but when the parts fit it sure helps.
Repair went well. The door came off easily after I figered out how to pull the hinges out of the oven chasis. The door dissassembled fine until I reached the 7 tags with screws that hold the inner glass in place. Three of the screws were frozen tight. Probable due to the age of the oven and the heat cycles on them. A little penetrating oil and working with the screws finally worked them loose. Just be carfull when tightening the screws with the new glass. If the screws are tightened too tight it may break the new glass.
I read all the repair stories here. They gave me the courage to try it. I pulled the oven door out and up. I placed the door HANDLE SIDE UP on a pad on a table. I removed the screws from the bottom and sides and began disassembly. First the bottom, then sides. I came apart easily, I set the insulation aside, then removed the screws and bracket holding the glass. I cleaned all the parts and glass. I replaced the glass and insulation and put it back together in reverse order. I put the drill/driver clutch on low so as not to strip any screws. I checked for tightness with a hand screwdriver. I re-attached the door to the oven by pushing both tabs into oven simultaneously. It took a couple of tries. In all, the fix It wasn't too difficult. I was able to handle it all myself except that my wife helped with cleaning the parts and glass. Now it looks like new again.
Overall the project was not bad. There are many pieces to the door. Carefully observe the order in which the door comes apart. This will make putting everything back together a lot quicker. The screws that hold the glass clips in the door were almost impossible to remove by hand. A power drill was helpful. Extra time was needed to wash off the baked on crud. When it was all done, the oven looked brand new.
took the door off, removed the screws, removed the back of the door, took the broken glass out, put new glass in, reassemble door, put door back on.
As others have said, the repair is easy and it's just a matter of unscrewing the screws (with a drill, not with a hand screwdriver) and carefully arranging the parts so you can reassemble in the same order. The trickiest part for me was removing the door. The flat metal part of the hinge extends straight back into the stove about four inches. You need to open the door a bit (about 45 degrees worked for me, but any angle where you feel you have leverage vis-a-vis the hinge will work) and then lift the door at the hinge slightly while pulling straight back. I was worried the hinge would spring out and cut my fingers off, so I kept my fingers away. As it turns out the hinges didn't snap down once the door was removed, so at least on my stove the hinges were not as scary as I imagined they could be. The whole process was a one-person job, though if you have two people, it would be nice to have one person on each side of the door while removing it and replacing it when done. All in all, it was definitely worth it in time and money to do this repair myself -- the oven was back up and working within a day of the broken glass, and I'm sure I couldn't have gotten it done any sooner had I called someone to repair it.
