Question about Maytag MER6772 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range
First time I used the self cleaning option on the oven. Started with the lower unit. Noticed the glass started to look like honeycomb on the inside. When the oven was cool enough to open, I saw how badly it was cracked. Do I need a new oven or new glass? The stove is 4 1/2 years old.
this is called thermal breakage. basically, when the mfg. makes the glass, they either don't cook it long enough or let it harden long enough during manufacturing. remember, the glass is supposed to withstand over 1200 degrees, which is temperature during self cleaning. have a technician replace the door glass, as warranty should cover this.

Thank you for your post, friend!
From my understanding after you used the self-clean feature on your Frigidaire range you now have brown and white streaks on the indoor glass. Typically streaks can be removed by cleaning the interior glass. Normally it is recommended to have a professional clean the inside glass but a consumer can do it as well. Use caution when following the steps some pieces can have sharp edges. You will need to have a Phillips head screwdriver or small quad bit driver.
A. Refer to owners guide for instructions on how to remove oven door.
B. With door in broil stop position lift door assembly off hinges.
C. Lay door on table, position so that handle hangs freely over edge of table
D. Remove 2 screws and washers that secure handle to lining assembly.
E. Remove 8 screws that attach textured steel door wrapper trim to lining assembly 3 at top, 3 at bottom, 1 on each side
F. Lift door lining up and out of wrapper trim assembly.
G. Lay lining assembly on table with wool shield/inner part of lining facing up.
H. Remove 2 glass clamps via 2 screws per clamp. These clamps attach innermost clear glass to wool shield.
I. Lift out center clear glass from wool shield, this glass just lays onto the wool shield and is held in place by the glass/ clamps in item H.
J. Clean each glass with appropriate cleaner.
K. One glass that remains in door lining assembly can at this time be cleaned without further disassembly the lining assembly.
L. Reassemble in reverse order.
Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Hello ewaters56 - Honestly, I suggest contacting a professional to have the inner glass panel replaced and I do not recommend for the oven to be used.
