My son spilled some oil and grease onto the door of the oven. While taking the screws off of the inside of the oven door, the outside glass slipped out. I can't figure out how to get it back on. The side trim does not fit within the handle on the top and the rail settings on the bottom. Is there a trick here?

Re: The Glass from the front of the oven door is off.
The glass on this door, is held up only by the lower trim, and sits behind the handle escution(very small contact point) as far as the trim for sides, the slip under top esctution,and behind the door glass(sorta keep the glass from contacting the metal frame of door.} much easier to do with door off of unit, refer to manual as how to remove the door if needed

Good Morning Suzi - Generally,
qualified technicians often perform complicated part replacement such as this,
however this may or may not be specifically for your model. Below are generic instructions
that I found on how to take your oven door apart to remove any stains that may
be caught down in the door vents.
needed: Phillips head screwdriver or small quad bit driver.
A. Open Door remove 2 screws and washers on door lining at door hinge area.
B. Refer to owners guide with door in broil stop position lift door assembly
C. Lay door on table, position so that handle hangs freely over edge of table
D. Remove 2 screws and washers that secure handle to lining assembly.
E. Remove 8 screws that attach textured steel door wrapper trim to lining
assembly 3 at top, 3 at bottom, 1 on each side
F. Lift door lining up and out of wrapper trim assembly.
G. Lay lining assembly on table with wool shield/inner part of lining facing
H. Remove 2 glass clamps via 2 screws per clamp. These clamps attach innermost
clear glass to wool shield.
I. Lift out center clear glass from wool shield, this glass just lays onto the
wool shield and is held in place by the glass/ clamps in item H.
J. Clean each glass with appropriate cleaner, Windex, bon ami, fantastic, etc
K. One glass that remains in door lining assembly can at this time be cleaned
without further disassembly the lining assembly.
I had a similar problem with a spill running into the vent and between the glass. I had to take the door apart clean it and then put it back together. It sounds hard, but it was just a few screws and a little time.
While waiting for someone else to answer my question, I fiddled around with the door parts. I managed to reassemble them! Here's how:
1. start with the glass panel. Slide the glass panel into the slot at the bottom of the front door frame on the stove.
2. next attach the handle. There are slots on the bottom of the handle that fit into the top of the glass panel. Slide the handle slots into the top of the glass panel.
3. screw the handle onto the oven door using the predrilled holes on the inside face of the oven door.
4. last, attach each of the two side trim strips. Slide the top of each strip into the bottom of the handle on each side of the oven door. Then slightly bend the strip outwards so that they are short enough to fit into the bottom slot of the oven door frame on each side of the glass panel.
I have exactly the same problem and my bottom glass panel exploded. My friends did the same. You can take the inside glass panel out via the two screws and clean the inside of the outer glass once removed. Id replace all the rubber seals to as they perish, particularly the one that clips onto the oven itself that meets the door.
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)
all oven doors collect grease to some extent, depending on which pane of glass actually got dirty will determine how difficult it is. your owners manual shoudl describe how to remove the oven door, after that, layont it o nthe table and carefully reomving the screws from along bottom panel you should be able to ge tto your dirty glass, might take a few screws, just dissasmble slowly, dont overtigthen screws and above all remembrer how your taking apart for reassmbly
If you are saying that the grease got in between the layers of glass (lamination), then you will have to disassemble the door, clean the glass, and reassemble. I haven't done this job on your particular model, but have on others and it is a tedious & time consuming task.
If though the grease is just cooked onto the inner surface of the glass on the oven door, you could use a single edge razor to scrape the gunk off (being extremely careful not to flip the blade causing you injury), as you would ice off a windshield with an ice scraper. There are handles made to keep the blade secured while using it (making it less likely to flip and injure the user).
First: do not use this unit with the glass improperly installed. Often, these installations use double sided foam tape, available at any hardware store. Carefully remove the screws in the door being careful to catch the glass. Clean the area where the tape will go with glass cleaner or alcohol. Allow to dry and buff to remove oil and grease. Install the tape and glass. Reassemble.
My husband cleaned this today!! Yahoo--I had over sprayed the glass cleaner and it ran in the vents. If you pull out the drawer on the bottom, and look up you will find that the glass is being held in at the bottom by a "clamp" & 3 screws, one on each end and in the middle. After you remove these, the glass front will come off, and you will see the inner door. There is another piece of glass that I cleaned, and now it looks 100 % better. Of course, the door comes apart easier than it goes back together, we had a little trouble lining up the screws. Don;t push the glass on too tight, the screw holes lined up better when there was a little space.
