Question about KitchenAid KGSA906P Gas Kitchen Range
We have this unit and during a move, the oven door needed to be removed and was subsequently dropped - shattering the glass. We need a diagram/service manual and the part number in order to replace the glass.
Also, after reading the other users issues with overheating while self-cleaning and the various problems that result we were wondering if there was a preventative fix to this design flaw?
Thank you for your help!

Generally, the procedure is a straightforward mechanical one.
First, check below the door for screws and remove them. Next, open the door and find the screws on the side and inside of the door. Remove them. Careful...when the door panel comes off, the door will be much lighter and will slam closed if not restrained. The panel should 'fall away' from the door. Have someone assist you here! At each stage, take a digital picture of the disassembly so you can assist yourself in putting it back. Clean the glass with a blue cleaner and buff out. Use a scrubby or very fine steel wool to gently remove any stains from the old glass you're reusing. Do this on a bedding of newspaper. Always handle glass by the edges.
When installing the glass, it should generally be apparent which way it goes in. Some glasses have patterns on them which correspond to the door opening...if it is the outer which is being replaced. Note them. There may be an up or down as as a result. Any foils or patterns are positioned to the direction you won't have access to later.
You'll likely need a second pair of hands to put it all back together. Take your time. Don't force anything. Tighten screws evenly.

No doubt this is a double paned glass panel. Two panes of glass with a divider strip separating the two for a "thermal break". Okay, you will need to remove the door from the hinges, and along the sides of the door, or possibly under the door gasket, you will find multiple screws that hold the two sandwiched halves of the door together. There should be a front panel, formed sheet steel, and an inner formed sheet steel panel which is coated with porcelin. When you have the front and back halves of the door separated, inside of one or maybe both of the panels you will find the clips, screws, or materials that hold this glass panel in place. Possibly it is in it's own frame, and the frame and glass both remove as one unit. Then it will be a matter of contacting Customer Service and Parts for your product, giving the Model #, Serial # and any other data that may be needed in order to replace the part with the correct one. Since this should be tempered glass, it will be quite heavy and at least 1/4" thick or so. The "thermal break" or space between the panes is so that heat does not transfer readily to the outside panel. Watch for any electrical connections for a door switch for the oven lamp, and be careful when removing the springs which allow the door to close and seal when in the closed position. And it might be helpful to take some photos of the disassembly process so that you can have a reference when you are ready to re-install the door. Be careful when removing the broken glass, and dispose of this carefully. Take your time, be patient, and don't force any thing, and you should be fine. Good lock. Kindest regards, Slats.

Had to remove the screws on the BOTTOM of the outside door, then panel came off after all the screws (inside oven door included) were off...
Reversed the order to put back on.. Cleaned (all) three glass pieces nicely... Now after reading the problems with the self cleaning part (doors getting stuck!) - I'm afraid to try mine!
