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.

For basic cleaning, use a non-abrasive cleanser or detergent and water. Clean the oven frame, oven door outside of the gasket and the gap in the gasket. (Don't clean the gasket.) With a damp sponge (with detergent if needed), wipe up any spills in the oven. (Sugary or acidic spillovers could damage the porcelain.) Wipe up any grease that spilled in the oven. Wipe the control panel with a damp cloth then dry. Clean the oven door with detergent and water. Clean the window or glass with detergent and water or glass cleaner. Use care to keep the water from seeping behind the window.
Next if you want to do a self-cleaning cycle. Remove the oven racks, the broiler pan and any other pans or items that are in the oven. Close the oven door. Press the Clean pad and then press Autoset(0) button to get the length of time to run the cleaning cycle. Press 2 or 4 to shorten or lengthen the cleaning cycle. After 5 seconds the door will lock and the cleaning cycle will begin. The door will remain locked until after the oven cools down (at least an hour after the cycle ends). Wipe up any white ash after the oven door unlocks. If you want the cleaning cycle to be delayed, press the Stop pad within 5 seconds of setting the length of the cleaning cycle. Use the number pads to set the time that you want the oven to end the cleaning cycle. (Make sure that it is later in the day with sufficient time to run the cleaning cycle.)
Generally speaking it is not a manufacturing fault.
Can be caused by many reasons.
The main reason is because of a cold surface coming into con tract with the inner door glass, for example, wiping the hot glass door with a cold damp cloth, or banging thr door to hard to close it, there are other reasons as well, but to reiterate, it is not a manufacturing fault.
Please rate my solution.
We just replaced the inner glass last night. The door needs to be removed, then take the screws out that holds the inside panel on. I suggest writing notes of the steps that you take when you remove the panel and glass. Our model had three pieces of glass. Be careful replacing the door, we knocked the lock loose which in turn knocked the sensor for the light to come on. We had to take that part of the oven apart also to fix it. Hope this helps. I may not have done this if it wasn't for the broken glass.
I just took my oven door off and took it apart to clean the glass inside. I don't have a maytag but they probably all work alike. Just open the door like you are going to broil something and just lift it up. It should slide right off. Shouldn't have to unscrew anything. Hope this helps. Arlene
