Yes, you can clean it yourself but be sure to take note of the way you dismantle the door. I usually take pictures to be sure of the process.

you need to remove the door. On your model just grab the door and lift and it should lift right off. Then remove the screws that run along the bottom of the door. Remove the bottom trim and the glass should slide down and off. Reverse to assemble

SOURCE: Clean Oven Door Glass

Using a long stick/tool, attach a cloth to the end. Remove the drawer and look up at the oven door. There are 2- 3 openings that are big enough for you to reach the mess. Make sure that whatever you are using to clean the glass will not stay stuck inside, so make sure its attached securely. I used the end of back scratcher with a thin cloth attached to it. After a few attempts, I was able to completely remove the stain that was caught between the two panels. AND... I didn't need to remove any screws or dismantle the door. This could void your warranty.

How to clean inside glass oven door


Taking the door off the oven and lay door on a soft surface so as to prevent scratching ,taking the door apart ( Carefully ), allow for a large work space, lay out your screws, the glass you are trying to reach is an inner glass, so obviously self clean is not going to help. Good luck!

Frigidaire oven door glass clean inside


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.

Tools 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 off hinges.


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 up.


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.


L. Reassemble in reverse order.

I hope this information helps to some degree.

How to clean the inside of the glass door of Electrolux Wall Oven


I scoured the internet trying to find how to clean inside the glass of my Electolux Icon double wall ovens. Short of "The Big Q-tip" method (which only made a smeared mess) I didn't find anything. So I went ahead and started taking the doors apart. I'm happy to report I just finished with fantastic results. So I'm going to do a step by step, I know I would have appreciated reading instructions for it. It's very easy but time consuming. You'll need a large work area because there are actually 4 sheets of glass, a Philips screwdriver, and a straight razor with handle.

Refer to your manual on how to take the doors off - but it's very easy. Simply open the door, flip the locks toward you and pull up and out at the same time. Be careful...the door is very heavy.

Lay door on blanket or towel, especially if it's stainless steel. There are 4 screws along each side of the door. The 2 screws that hold the hinge at the bottom are smaller than the 2 closer to the top.

On the very bottom there are two more screws to hold the bottom outer frame. Under that piece are 2 more screws that hold the inner bottom frame. That's it. Slide out the hinges and you're ready to go.

Remove those 2 frame pieces and keep in mind how they fit back together. Remove the top piece of glass and put on another towel. Now I'm not sure if it matters but I was mindful of the side of each piece of glass as I remove and cleaned them to make sure they went back exactly as they came out.

The first piece is going to be the most time consuming to clean. One took me over an hour. The grease is hard to get off because it just spreads around. I found a straight razor really sped this along, just make sure you always use the razor on wet glass or you'll scratch the glass. It's fiddly...just keep at it. I also used mineral spirits to help degrease. When done I laid this on the dining table.

The next 2 pieces of glass are in a frame that comes out together. The frame is only on the sides so be careful it doesn't come apart on you when carrying it. Inside the frame piece is a rubber gasket to separate the 2 pieces of glass. Watch how the frame comes off, there is a wide and a narrow side. It's easier to take off the frame piece and simply lift of the first piece of glass. The bottom piece of glass sits in a channel of the rubber gasket.

Pretty simple. Lots of elbow grease if you cook a lot. Reverse the order to reassemble. One thing to note - on the door sides near the top, you'll see a silver metal piece inside the black frame. Make sure the screw holes are visible thru the black frame. I have very small fingers so it was easy to do it with my fingers but I would imagine someone with large hands will have some difficulty. Also, when screwing the hinge in place I had to twist the hinge so the screw hold was up against the black frame. The screws are so short that they'll just spin without catching if you don't.

Happy cleaning!

Dirt and grease between glass in oven door


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.
