Inside door glass broke

  • Customer: MANNY from LIVERMORE, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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.

I removed bottom drawer of the kitchen aid oven.I could see the gas valve.I opened the door of the oven and removed plate on bottom of the oven .there was no screws holding it down ,I removed a couple of screw for the burner and took out 2 screws for the heating element . In the back of the oven .there is 2 wires .one goes to the gas valve located behind the bottom draw.you know can see it from the front with the draw removed,than move the oven out and take the 4 screws holding the back plate .you will see the other wire the element plugs into .you unplug 2 wires and a few screws and you are done.you save alot of money and since this happens alot .you can compare this to changinging a light bulb.It needs maintence from time to time.

Oven wouldn't light

My analysis was flawed. The $100 gas valve was acting erraticaly, so I replaced it. On a hunch, I took the top front off the stove and immediately saw a row of mini relays mounted on the $300 control board. The one labeled "bake" was black!
It is just too small for years of gas on / gas off high current. (The gas valve is indestructable. I took the old one apart. It's only a heater wire wrapped around a bimetalllic arm that lifts a soft pad off of the valve orfice.)
I removed the control board and desoldered the "bake" relay and the "light" relay. I cleaned up the bad "bake" relay contacts and swapped the two relays. Works fine. Better $100 mistake than a $300 control board. (Could have been $0, though.)

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!

Removed oven from wall unit and took the back off. Removed the old socket assembly by depressing the ears and forcing unit into the oven. The electrical wires were easily removed since they are spade connections and slip off. They also are different sizes so that there is no chance of erroneously putting them back in an incorrect order. The new unit simply slips in from the front and snaps into place. The most difficult part of the entire process is removing the old unit. A little "friendly persuasion" is required to get the old unit out.

This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.

inside glass broke due to oversize pan

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.

Oven light not working

I turned off the breaker (I'm a little nervous even unplugging a 220 plug). I first removed the cover from the back of the stove to get to the wiring/socket. Removed the two wires from the leads - they just pull off by hand but use a needlenose pilers if it is stuck. One is larger so no need to try to remember which one goes where. I removed the glass cover and bulb from inside the oven. I read another post on this site that said there were clips that you had to press to get the old socket out which helped. That part was a little tricky as the insulation around the socket makes it hard to see and the opening is really tight. I finally found the clips and pressed one then got that side out enough to hold the clip back then pressed the other clip and I was able to push it right out. I did not have the strength to press both clips with enough pressure but if you do, that would probably be easier. From inside the oven, I pushed the new socket through the hole - there was a little notch in the opening that had to match up with the socket. I had to push pretty firmly until I felt both clips snap in place. Replaced the wires, turned on the power, screwed in the bulb and cover and I had light!

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

Take the door off the oven by sliding out the old hinges that hold the door on to the oven. Put the door up on a protected table so that the hinges can hang down and free of the table. This step will make the job go much more simple. Proceed by removing all visable screws. Make a mental note on how the old hinges are held in and how the door comes apart. Take your time this is not a hard task! I am a homemaker, was taking care of my grandson that day and still accomplished the task in under an hour. The repair people wanted $145.00 labor only to install this part!

Igniter problem on one gas burner

  • Customer: Roland from Houston, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 15 of 17 people found this instruction helpful
I had to remove the two separate components of the gas burner unit, each had two screws. I lifted then tilted the lower portion of the burner unit to allow access to the underside of the igniter. I removed the wire and then with an offset screwdriver I removed the single screw that held the igniter in place. I reversed the steps to install the replacement, very quick fix.

I was also very pleased with how quickly the order was processed and the part was delivered, only three or four days with standard shipping.

replaced inner glass that cracked when some cool water was drizzled on it accidentally

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
