Re: broken inner glass door
NO, I would not recommend this at all. However, I have seen the stoves used without one of the inner glasses with no problems. I am a factory servicer for frigidaire and have seen people use these with one of the glasses broken and haven't seen a problem yet.
But again, it's not recommended.

I had the same problem with my Kenmore elite. Also told they would not cover it under the warrenty. Seems like alot have this issue with these inner glass panels.
It is a nightmare to remove the glass yourself.
But before you go and pay $150 for a service tech, try this:
Under the oven door there are large vents. If you remove the bottom drawer, you can get better access to them. Or you can remove the oven door entirely and lay it on a blanket...this is not that hard to do.
Buy a bottle cleaner brush with an extra long handle.
Tightly tie a sock around this and spray all over it with Windex. Push thru the vents and wipe, wipe, wipe. It might take awhile to get it all clean, but it works.
You will need a long handle though..and something flexible. So that bottle cleaner brush works well.
I did it about 6 months ago and worked great.
Unfortunately, just recently I cleaned my oven after allt he holiday cooking spills.
And voila...tons of dark streaks running down the inner glass.
So I will do the windex trick again.
They do need to come up with something better considering the costs of these ovens!!
It is simple enough not to need a manual.
1- open the door, then pull outwards. The door mounts slide right out.
2- lay flat on a towel on the floor. Remove screws on the inside of the door.
3- remove each piece and layer of the door and glass panels. Set them aside in order so you know how it goes back together
4- replace broken inner glass panel
5- put each piece back together, install screws
6- slide door (mounts) back into their homes on the front of the range
It is surprisingly simple. All you need is a #2 Phillips screwdriver and a bit of patience.
Tip: make sure to clean each glass panel while you have the door apart. Use a razor blade for those stubborn burnt on stains.
With any plain electric oven yes, as long as it's not a microwave. You will ofcourse loose a lot of heat and can do the same as I wrote underneath regarding a microwave oven to counter this loss. Only then wrap the foil around the door from the inside because the electric oven tends to get hot and would melt the tape.
Even when it's a microwave and you just have to cook you could tape some aluminium foil to the door from the inside and *do* make sure there are no cracks where radiation can leak out.
