Re: whirlpool oven door
The rep is right as of yet there is no recalls on this problem and yes they are tempered but in my many travels I hve only seen two do this once you have the glass replaced this will take care of the problem also if you use a oven cleaner that is not made for self cleaning ovens and get even a drop on the glass it will shatter

Be careful with glass oven doors, common problem with shattering glass doors is hanging a wet/damp towel on the handle ( as this is the best place for them to dry!) When the oven is hot! . glass is not able to handle such a extreme change in tempetures. Hope this may have answered what could of happened
The door glass can be replaced.
I would advise you not to use the oven until you get the glass replaced, as it can quite suddenly and without warning shatter into small pieces. thus causing further problems, and possibly injury.
Hope this helps.
Unfortunatey, it happens quite frequently, there is no one reason for it to do so.
The only solution is to replace it.
Over a number of years use, the glass looses it's properties, and this is what can happen.
It is quite common for this problem to occur.
There is no one satisfactory explanation for this to happen, but happen it does.
DO NOT use the oven until you have it repaired.
Contact the makers or one of their repair agents to get a new door glass fitted.
Hope this helps, and in the meantime have a nice xmas, go out and let someone else do the cooking for you..
This is a very common problem with the majority of electric ovens, there is no one particular reason for it to happen, it just happen's.
You have no alternative but to replace the glass, check your household insurance policy, as some policys cover for breakage of glass.
Please` rate my solution.
It is not a fault with the door, and this sort of event occurs quite often, so is not uncommon.
All sorts of things can cause this, sudden change in temp, getting the glass wet whilst it is still hot, a knock or bang form an earlier time could have weakened the glass.
The list is quite long..
Depending on your household insurance, some policys cover for breakage of glass fittings, would be worth checking.
Plz rate my solution
I doubt you will get it cheaper any where, Zanussi is a bit of a closed shop.
If you can let me have the exact model no and the er number, I might be able to help you.
As for the reason it shattered, there are numerous reasons for this to happen, too many to go into, but it is a very common problem with cookers..
They do just go without any warning.
A cold kitchen could indeed be a factor, a badly fitting door is another factor, i could go on and on and on!!!!!
There is no one thing it can be put down to.
Plz let let me have the details I ask, and I will see what I can come up with.
