This job is best done by two people, one to hold the glass in place, and the other to operate the screwdriver and position the handle and trim pieces.
The glass is held in place by the handle assembly at the top and a metal track at the bottom.  You remove the glass by removing the handle. Open the door part way until you have access to the back of the door.  The door handle is held in place by two screws on the back (the oven side).  Remove the screws, taking care to hold the handle in place.  Be sure to brace the glass, then slowly move the handle away from the door frame.  Remove the glass.  The side trim pieces will probably fall away from the door frame, although they will probably not fall all the way out.  My advice is to carefully remove them.  Be careful; they have tabs on the bottom edge that hold them in the door frame and these tabs are easily broken.  If yours are still in one piece you might just reuse them.
Remove the old glass panel and clear the bottom track of any debris.  Put the new glass panel in, beginning with the bottom track.  Set the oven handle on the top edge of the glass panel; there are tracks on the back of the handle assembly the top edge of the glass fits into.  Bring the handle toward the door frame, taking care not to let the glass panel slip out of the tracks.   The door handle has two collars that go through holes in the door frame.  Once you've got the collars through these holes, you can put the two screws back in that secure the handle to the door.
Take one of the side trim pieces.  Each trim piece has a narrow edge and a wide edge (like a capital "L"), The narrow edge faces the front and the wide edge faces the side of the door.  Each piece has a corner edge with a little tab sticking out.  These face down.  The opposite end of the trim piece has recessed edges. These slide under the edge of the door handle.  You want to insert this end first, then work your way along the length of the trim piece pushing the narrow edge between the door frame and the glass panel.  
Here's the tricky part.  To get the bottom in, the best thing to do is to open (or better yet remove altogether) the drawer beneath the oven to gain access to the screws that hold the bottom track of the glass panel to the door.  Loosen the screw that holds the track in on the same side as the trim piece you're working on; the screws are on the bottom of the track about 1 inch in from the edge. Loosen the screw slightly and pull down on that edge of the trim as you push the trim piece in behind the glass.  Repeat until the trim piece tab slips through the hole for it on the track.  Tighten the screw back in place.
Repeat this process for the other trim piece. If you're patient and gentle, it shouldn't be too difficult.  I just did this myself today (2/7/09).
Good luck.

Oven door keeps open ay ideas about the fault cheers


make this test and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU


Door Hinge

An oven door repair may be needed if the door hinge breaks or is bent out of shape. Oven doors have two door hinges, a left and right. On some ovens the same hinge is used, on other ovens the right hinge and left hinge have different part numbers. The door hinge sometimes is sold with all necessary parts and springs, other times the parts need to be ordered separately. An oven door repair for a door hinge is a relatively easy repair for a do-it-yourselfer.

Outer Door Glass

If the outer door glass is broken, it can be replaced. This oven door repair requires that the oven door be removed from the oven and layed down on a sturdy flat surface. The outer door glass is made of tempered glass. Use eye and hand protection when performing this oven door repair.

Glass inside oven door is dirty. Is it possible to disassemble the door to clean the glass?


You can remove the oven door and dis-assemble it to clean it but you are looking at quite a task to do so.. Most of the kitchen aid brand requires two pins to be inserted into the door hinges while the door is in the open position to allow the door to be open. When you have inserted the pins into the hinge start to close the door and the pressure of the hinge spring will be applied to the pins allowing you to now lift on the door removing it from it's slots in the face of the oven. The hinge will slide out of the oven face.

Once you have the door removed you can begin the task of taking the door apart. Lay the door inside part down on a table or counter, remove the screws from the bottom of the door trim (piece that holds lower part of glass) and remove the trim. Now you should be able to slide the outer glass downwards (some models required side trims to be removed also). Now you can remove the handle assembly and then begin to remove the inner door liner and inner glass package.
Be careful and pay attention to screw size/location.
Take pictures at each step to aid in re-assembly!
Good luck!!

Exterior glass trim on Kenmore Electric Range 880-5981


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.

Slid the bottom storage compartment completely out. On the bottom of oven door are four (4) screws that hold trim piece that support outer glass panel. Remove screws and carefully remove complete glass and trim assembly. There are two (2) corner trim panels that are also secured by two (2) of the screws being removed. At this point you can clean all glass (both the outer panel that was removed and the inner insulated glass) and all other built up goop. Simply reverse process to reinstall.

Door glass shattered 3 hours after cooking


The problem is that the holding screws that secure the glass in place were most likely OVER TIGHTENED.All the screws around the support holders of the glass have to be tightened just right and the glass can cool off without the pressure that makes it pop.
