Be careful with glass oven doors, common problem with shattering glass doors is hanging a wet/damp towel on the handle ( as this is the best place for them to dry!) When the oven is hot! . glass is not able to handle such a extreme change in tempetures. Hope this may have answered what could of happened
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.
The glass is replaceable. You need to get the exact glass replacement kit from the manufacturer. I had to have mine replaced about a year ago due to condensation between the 2 glass panels and was able to get the replacement for $0.00.
Suggest to Siemens that the glass on yours should not have shattered and therefore was probably defective and you may luck out and get the glass for free. It's worth a try.
Unfortunatey, it happens quite frequently, there is no one reason for it to do so.
The only solution is to replace it.
Over a number of years use, the glass looses it's properties, and this is what can happen.
It is quite common for this problem to occur.
There is no one satisfactory explanation for this to happen, but happen it does.
DO NOT use the oven until you have it repaired.
Contact the makers or one of their repair agents to get a new door glass fitted.
Hope this helps, and in the meantime have a nice xmas, go out and let someone else do the cooking for you..
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.
