Broken outer door assy
I broke the door by accidentally "bumping" the lower door handle stepping off a ladder while changing light bulbs at mother-in-law's. Yes, I broke my mother-in-laws oven!
Partselect.com saved my bacon and my marriage. The repair is fairly straight forward. The door is opened about halfway to allow access to the clips on the hinges. Once the clips are down, the door just lifts right off.
The Outer door is essentially stainless steel and tempered glass laminated together. There are three screws top and bottom of the door that must be removed to allow the back of the door to be lifted out of the front.
Once you have the door separated, you must remove the heat shield behind the handle with one screw and pry the shield up a little. It is held in place with double sided sticky tape as well.
Once the heat shield is up, you can remove the two nuts holding the handle in place.
Once the handle is removed flip the door over, face up, and then just slide the glass outer assy up. It is held in place by two tabs on the bottom that slide into two holes in the front oven door assy and the now removed handle.
Remove the protective plastic taped to the new door and then just slide back into place and reassemble the door.
Fairly easy. You might need an extra set of hands to actually lift the door out of the oven and to get the two halves back together when you try to line up the screws.
