Cleaning Oven Door Glass inside face

We were recently fixing a dish in the oven which required us to bake liquid milk/cream. As we were putting the dish into the oven it spilled onto the open oven door. Some of the liquid entered the vents at the top of the door. After cleaning up the spill the dish was place into the oven and the door was closed. As soon as we did liquid ran down the inside face of the class which appears to be inaccessble. There is nothing in the Dacor manual about cleaning or getting to the inside of the glass. Is this somethign that we can do ourselves or do we need to call a service technician?

First take the two inside screws out, (found at the top of the door) they will pop out when you have both sides off so make sure to take them all the way out so you dont lose a washer or one of the screws. The handle is actually secured by these 2 screws and will come off of the door when you remove them.. your metal door can bend slightly in this process, so be careful. as soon as the handle and screws are off you can clean inside of the 2 pieces of glass, also a good time to clean off the opposite side of the door behind the handle. only take the 2 screws off no need to remove the full door. I used a magic eraser to remove the grease and then I cleaned the glass with glass cleaner. I used a small vice to secure the door when putting the handle back on, but you could have someone to hold the piece togeather for you too. (I have a frigidaire stainless steel model)

Glass inside oven door is dirty. Is it possible to disassemble the door to clean the glass?


You can remove the oven door and dis-assemble it to clean it but you are looking at quite a task to do so.. Most of the kitchen aid brand requires two pins to be inserted into the door hinges while the door is in the open position to allow the door to be open. When you have inserted the pins into the hinge start to close the door and the pressure of the hinge spring will be applied to the pins allowing you to now lift on the door removing it from it's slots in the face of the oven. The hinge will slide out of the oven face.

Once you have the door removed you can begin the task of taking the door apart. Lay the door inside part down on a table or counter, remove the screws from the bottom of the door trim (piece that holds lower part of glass) and remove the trim. Now you should be able to slide the outer glass downwards (some models required side trims to be removed also). Now you can remove the handle assembly and then begin to remove the inner door liner and inner glass package.
Be careful and pay attention to screw size/location.
Take pictures at each step to aid in re-assembly!
Good luck!!

Spill between glass panes on oven door


The only way to clean this is to dismantle the door. Most brands you can remove the door and set it on a counter to dismantle. This can be very complicated, depending on the brand and model. Leaving the gravy inside the door won't hurt the range, and self cleaning usually will not clean this completely. It usually just bakes it on harder. Good Luck Appliance Specialists

Ranges self cleaning instructions


Hi
An oven is a standard piece of equipment in the kitchen of a home or apartment. Often, the original instructions for operating and cleaning the oven have been lost or are not included with the lease of an apartment or purchase of a pre-owned home. To get the most use out of your oven and keep it functioning properly, it is important to know how to use it.
Adjust the racks to the desired position. Some Frigidaire models feature heating elements on the top of the oven while others are located on the bottom. Generally, moving your dish farther away from the heating source will result in a slower cooking time or reduced browning. Choose the desired oven temperature and set by turning the temperature knob or manual punching in the numbers followed by the "Enter" or "Start" button. Allow the oven to pre-heat before placing dishes into the oven to bake.

How to use..

Open the door while standing to the side of the oven. Standing directly in front can result in burns from the hot air. Wearing a dry oven mitt, place pans onto the desired oven rack. If baking more than one dish, stagger the pans on different racks, so that one is not directly on top of the other. This will help ensure even heating. Close the door and set the timer, using the numeric key pad or up-and-down arrows followed by the "Start" or "Enter" button. If you want to encourage additional browning on top of the dish, set the oven to "Broil" after the dish has cooked through. Monitor the dish carefully, as food can burn quickly. Remove the dish when completed using dry oven mitts, and turn off the oven.

How to Clean..

Do not attempt to clean the oven until it has cooled completely. The oven's exterior and the interior frame can be cleaned using a sponge dampened with hot water and dish detergent. The glass portion of the door may be cleaned with paper towels and glass cleaner. For ease of cleaning, wipe spills as soon as possible after they occur. Wait until the oven has cooled and then clean using the sponge method. If this does not work, a spray-on oven cleaner can be used, according to the manufacturer's directions for a manual cleaning oven, or for a self-cleaning oven, push the self-cleaning button and allow the oven to cycle through the automatic cleaning, usually about 1 hour. Never scrub the rubber seal around the over door, as this can lead to deterioration and prevent the oven from sealing properly.

hope you will be helpfull

I'm not familiar with this unit exactly but I'll give you some guidelines. You have a double layer or more of glass and the glass inside the unit is your problem. Generally, cleaning glass on ovens is no problem if you use cleaners that leave no residues, don't stress the glass and don't scratch it. Prepare a flat surface covered with newspaper to clean your glass. You may use a blue glass cleaner, a scrubby or VERY fine steel wool. Never use any cleaner which leaves residue. Use lots of liquid and very little pressure. Finish with a soft cloth. Clean the inside of the door and any of the gasket you can get to. Use only a sponge and detergent unless the area is really a mess.

First, be aware that the door is spring loaded and as you remove items, it will tend to snap closed. Note that there are probably screws that are near the base of the door, probably accessed from below. Remove these first. Then, remove side screws and carefully remove the panel holding the glass. This probably comes out into the room. There is a danger that the glass is not secured inside the panel so have the door fully open when 'dropping' the outside panel. Note the positions of all clips. You may even want to take a digital picture or two. When reassembling, never overtighten anything! All parts should lay flat and insert easily. Get assistance with reassembly...you'll need another pair of hands.

First, determine what this gook is. If it is grayish, it is ash and can be removed with a rag and plain water. You'll always find ash as a byproduct of the cleaning. If it seems to be oven grease and is located in the gasket or gasket area ONLY, get some WD 40 and spray it on the gunk. Let it loosen up and remove it with a rag. You may need multiple applications. If possible, follow up with a soap solution to remove as much of the WD 40 residue as possible. Note, this may cause some smoking when the oven is next cleaned. Be sure to ventilate the area well while using this or any other solvent. Do not use the solvent on glass, it may discolor when heated. Use a standard glass blue liquid glass cleaner or water. If the glass won't clean easily, you may use a WET mild abrasive pad or steel wool VERY gently...so as not to scratch the glass. Follow up with a dampened rag. Anything you leave on the glass will be baked on...so make it clean! You may also use this procedure in the gasket area on the porcelain. Porcelain is a glass-based paint. It should not be scratched. Be patient.
Be aware that if you take door apart that the door is counter balanced. Removing a significant amount of weight by taking off pieces of the assembly may cause it to slam closed. Each of the two thicknesses of glass are mounted separately. Usually, there are some kind of clips holding the glass. Note that there is often fragile insulation inside the door. Avoid touching it or breathing in any dust it may emit. You may need a second pair of hands to align the door front and the bolt holes when re-assembling.
In the future, do not wait too long between cleanings. Use a rag to remove heavy spillage as soon as you find it, don't wait for a cleaning cycle. If your oven is very dirty, use a 3 hour setting or longer to finish the job if you have goo left in your oven after the cycle.

Cleaning glass on oven door


The marks may be on the inside part of the glass. If so then the door will need to be taken apart for cleaning. You can use a razor blade scraper and glass cleaner to soften the buildup. Self cleaning won't remove if it is on the inside.
