After self cleaning, I opened the door and touched the glass with a damp sponge too soon - Glass is cracked and needs to be replaced. Do I get a WHOLE new door? Can I replace the glass myself (- and if so how do i order the part?) Or is this something I should get a professional to repair?

Hi, I have pasted the instructions for your Smeg oven you below:
9.4 Removing the internal glass panels
The glass in the door should always be kept thoroughly clean. To facilitate
cleaning, it is possible to remove the door (see 9.2 Removing the door) and
place it on a canvas, or open it and lock the hinges in order to extract the glass
The glass panels of the door can be completely removed by following the
instructions provided below.
Warning: before removing the glass panels, make sure that at least one of the
door's hinges has been locked in the open position as described in "9.2
Removing the door". This operation may have to be repeated during the glass
removal process if the door is accidentally freed.
Removing the internal glass panel:
• Remove the internal glass panel by
pulling it upwards, following the
movement indicated by the arrows. Doing
this detaches the 4 pins attached to the
glass from their slots in the oven door.
Removing the intermediate glass panels
(on some models only):
• Some multifunction models have an
intermediate glass panel. Remove the
intermediate panel by lifting it upwards.
• It is now possible to clean the external
glass panel and the panels removed
previously. Use absorbent kitchen roll. In
the case of stubborn dirt, wash with a
damp sponge and neutral detergent.
Replacing the glass panels:
• Replace the panels in the reverse of the
order in which they were removed.
• Reposition the internal glass panel, taking
care to centre and insert the 4 pins
attached to the glass into their slots in the
oven door by applying slight pressure.

No and no...
I would use the self cleaning anyway it gets everything too hot and cuases things to go wrong faster, like burning up the coatings on your wires and such...it is a bad idea but it sells ranges...so go figure.
Definetly noy if your glass has a crack... unless you want to replace it right now...
depends on type of unit,but most separate by opening oven door and removing the screws around the perimeter of the door, be careful reinstalling as to get inner and outer glass re-positioned right along with insulation,this is especially critical because the outer glass can't withstand self-clean temps and will break
It isn't that tough to change the glass assembly. Most of the Frigidaire have 4 screws that hold the front of the door to the inner part- sandwiching the glass in between. It is only sold as a unit- 2 glass pieces, assembled with an aluminum frame. Call All brands Appliance parts at 508-587-7100 and they'll get the part out to you. (Tell them Greasy Wheels sent ya, they'll take good care of you.) The most common reason the glass breaks, is a scratch in the glass. Sometimes it's just a dragged pan, other times it's from cleaning it with a sharp instrument. Don't do that....
