Glass in oven door is cracked, inner glass completely fallen out
We have had our oven 4 years. Have used it numerous times. Used it a couple of weeks ago and next morning noticed the door glass was cracked like ice... when I opened the door, the middle/inner section of glass fell out in chunks and pieces. The glass on the inside is still intact. Wondering if this is a problem with this product.

You should be able to repair your existing door.
Have a look around the perimeter of the door to see if there are any screws, particularly near the handle. You are looking to take the front fascia off the door, so that you can access the inside. Most doors have the front fascia held on by small brackets glued to the back of the glass that clip on to a fixing on the internal door. The top of the fascia is normally held in place by the handle.
Once you have the front of the door off you can retrieve the piece of glass that has fallen out. You will almost certainly find that the glass has come away from the adhesive that was used to hold it in place.
You will need to clean up the glass and the metal door and re-stick the glass using a high temperature oven door glue
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.
Normally there is a clip on both door hinges to allow easy door removal.
Once door is removed place on a towel on a flat surface. You will find a couple of screws on the top of the door and possibly underneath. Unscrew these and the two halves of the door should come appart. The inner glass is held in place with high temperatute oven sealant. You will need to thoroughly scrape the old sealant from inside inner door and on glass.
Apply sealant bead to inner door (but not too close to the edge) and then gently lower the cleaned glass on to the sealant. Press down gently. Now the sealant must have 24hrs to completely set so place a towel over the glass and place some heavy objects on the towel. House bricks are good if you have any.
Once dry you can then screw both door panels together and refit oven door.
umm. there will always be some assemblence of grease on the door glass, if its on the inner most panel and you can scrub it off, then i would reccomned using a razor blade lying flat to scrape it off, however if it has developed within the panel(s) of glass then the only remedy is to dissassmeble the door and glean them that way.. there was some conflict as to the age of your machine in your description, you say "3-hour cycle for the first use late last spring, if I remember correctly--whatever the directions said to do for the first time, a 4-hour cycle after Thanksgiving last fall and a 3-hour cycle for the second cleaning a couple of days ago since it wasn't very dirty"" so i cant be a mont old??? reason i say is that is the unit you purchased probably come with a pretty kickin warr and the manufacture will want ot make good on your issue if you cant resolve it, betterchance though if only 1 month not 11
