Tip & How-To about Ovens

Range/Stove/ Oven Door Glass Replacement

I see many questions come up at Fixya.com about oven door glass that has broken and how to replace the glass. For many ovens it is a relatively simple task. It will take about an hour for most people, depending on the skill level, and the type of door.

To do this job you should have handy a screwdriver, usually a Philips head medium sized, a plastic tarp, especially if your glass in the door is already broken, and of course the new glass. It is also a good idea to measure the new piece of glass to make sure that it is close in size before taking the door apart.

For your safety, make sure that the power is turned off to the oven before starting this job also. The open the oven door and remove the screws on the inside face of the door. If the door can be remove easily you can remove it, but it is not necessary to do that. Make sure that you place the pieces of the door as they come off and the screws in a place to keep them organized for when you put everything back together.

For most ovens you will find the oven glass held in by tabs, similar to a picture frame. Pull the tabs back to release the glass. Carefully remove the old glass from the frame. If it is broken, be very careful not to cut yourself. Also contain the glass on the trap to make cleanup easier. For many newer ovens, you will have three layers of glass. Do the same process for each layer.

When the old glass is removed, then simply replace each layer of glass and press the tabs back in place for each one. Then replace the brackets or inside pieces of the door, and secure with the screws.

This is how easy it is to replace the glass for many of the ovens.

Another word about broken glass in ovens…..
Many of the people that have broken glass state that it broke after running the self-clean feature of their oven. For many of you this warning will be too late…but for those of you that see this before, be warned!

2 Remove the outer screws , starting from lower side of the panel.
3Removethe inner screws. Keep all set of screws ordered, and take note of theorder you remove them. You will follow reverse order in reassembly.
4 the frame will be free now,
5 Remove the external glass panel and leave it in a safe place.
6 Replace the inner glass.
7 Clean outer glass and metal door, re-assemble it and mount it back

I also report testimonials for your model:

"
removed the door from the oven by releasing clips attached to the door hinge -- very nicely engineered. Removed about 6 philips head screws to allow the door assembly to be taken apart for access to the glass. Lifted out the broken glass, cleaned the inside of the door, installed the new glass, reassembled the door (a two minute project), and reattached the door to the oven. Cleaning the inside of the door"

"
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. "
