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.

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

Since you did not include a model number this solution will be from the hip as I can not refer to any manuals to assist you. Most ovens the oven door comes off by tilting the door out to the first stop and then lifting is vertical inline with the position of the hinge at the bottom of the door. Some of them may have retaining screws on the inside of the door to keep the door attached to the hinge area that must be removed FIRST. The hinge itself should stay attached to the oven.

I can probably provide you with a source (Maybe more than one) for the door glass if you respond with a model number,

When you attempt to take the door apart lay it down on 2 rugs so you do not scratch it. Use some blocks of wood UNDER the rugs to prop the door up so as not to damage the handle.

The door glass is replaced by removing the screws from the indide of the door. Sometimes you have to remove the trim pieces in addition to the multiple door panels. Everything is done from the inside of the door. You must take out the inner panel, Then the inner glass, then the spacer, the insulation if any and finally the outer door glass. Reassembly is in reverse order. Outer glass, spacer, insulation if any inner glass, the inner panel and re-install the trim if you had to remove it.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Kitchen Aid microwave door -- outer glass


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.

Oven door glass repair


Get a tech to do this. You will end up breaking the replacement glass if you are not careful. It is too hard to explain to replace the glass by not seeing what you are doing.

TKC 8522/2 top oven outer door shattering


It is not a fault with the door, and this sort of event occurs quite often, so is not uncommon.
All sorts of things can cause this, sudden change in temp, getting the glass wet whilst it is still hot, a knock or bang form an earlier time could have weakened the glass.
The list is quite long..
Depending on your household insurance, some policys cover for breakage of glass fittings, would be worth checking.
Plz rate my solution
.Thanks.
