The outer oven window shattered today on the stove. The oven was heated to 220C, happily baking chips and chicken nuggets as it has so many times before. I was standing in the kitchen when it happened and I can say no water was splashed onto the glass, I hadn't opened/slammed the oven door. Nothing like that. It just shattered. Is the glass replaceable or are we looking at buying a new stove? Thanks!

The double-glass is held down by the inner framework, which secures with fairly hefty Philips screws.
These screws and frame can become baked on over years of fat / oil being dried and hardened into a shellac-type 'superglue'.
Lay door horizontal, or as open as it will go, pour olive oil over screws and brush edges of window and frame.
Leave to soak (unheated), at least overnight.
The interior of the door has glass wool heat insulation.
Apply rubber gloves and long sleeves if the spiky glass wool fibers irritate your skin (like mine!!).
Unscrew frame, lift glass out.
Electrical stockists which sell stove parts (may) possibly have a match, otherwise search the web, manufacturer, etc.
I have the same problem. I have a maybe gas oven and stove too and the outer glass shattered when we were moving. But we live in Boquete Panama and all these answers only really apply to the US. Any answers.
Hello- I would be careful using the oven mostly because the inner glass will be VERY hot to the touch, meaning you will get burned if you touch it. If you have children I would refrain from using the oven, too risky. If it is just you, or just adults then you should be ok to use it until you can repair it. Keep in mind that you will probably lose a lot of heat out the door and it make take longer to bake. Again, be wary of the inner door glass if you use the oven. Do a test run with a low heat and see how it performs. Hope this helps, best regards.
Unfortunately no your ceramic glass top cannot be repaired and will have to be replaced. as for the burners as long at the metal heating part of it isn`t damaged and its just the outer white coloured insulation that is cracked or chipped this is okay and still operate normally.hope this helps
Lisa, I do not have a solution, but have the same problem. My KA superba micro has been used about 10 times. While it was off, and while no one was home, the outer glass in the door shattered. I suspect this may be a defect.
