I let the door stay open, hold the switch closed with my finger, activated self clean. Let it run for a minute then hit cancel, the stove heating element shut off and the locked door blinked for 5 seconds then finally stopped. Back to normal.

SOURCE: Replacing outer glass of oven door

This is glass because glass does not burn, does not melt at oven temperatures, and is a pretty good insulator. Also allows the cook to watch the cake rise.

I would not replace with anything but factor glass. Too dangerous, even regular glass is not properly treated to be safe in this environment.

The cash for clunkers gets extended to appliances soon, perhaps this makes a new one more affordable?

SOURCE: how do I replace the shattered glass in my GE oven door

No doubt this is a double paned glass panel. Two panes of glass with a divider strip separating the two for a "thermal break". Okay, you will need to remove the door from the hinges, and along the sides of the door, or possibly under the door gasket, you will find multiple screws that hold the two sandwiched halves of the door together. There should be a front panel, formed sheet steel, and an inner formed sheet steel panel which is coated with porcelin. When you have the front and back halves of the door separated, inside of one or maybe both of the panels you will find the clips, screws, or materials that hold this glass panel in place. Possibly it is in it's own frame, and the frame and glass both remove as one unit. Then it will be a matter of contacting Customer Service and Parts for your product, giving the Model #, Serial # and any other data that may be needed in order to replace the part with the correct one. Since this should be tempered glass, it will be quite heavy and at least 1/4" thick or so. The "thermal break" or space between the panes is so that heat does not transfer readily to the outside panel. Watch for any electrical connections for a door switch for the oven lamp, and be careful when removing the springs which allow the door to close and seal when in the closed position. And it might be helpful to take some photos of the disassembly process so that you can have a reference when you are ready to re-install the door. Be careful when removing the broken glass, and dispose of this carefully. Take your time, be patient, and don't force any thing, and you should be fine. Good lock. Kindest regards, Slats.

Can I still use my aeg electric oven if the outer glass is shattered I have company tomorrow and need to cook Christmas dinner the inner glass is still intact


Yes you can, in the emergency, but take care that the remaining glass will be at oven temp. You may want to shield it with a piece of plywood or stiff cardboard, taped on.

My over the oven model 665.61629100 kenmore has cracked door


The outer door frame CAN be replaced if you like. You can view an exploded view diagram at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item 10 under the "Door" parts listing. The part comes in various colors so make sure you select the correct one.

The door can be easily removed by opening it all the way and lifting straight up at the hinges. The door will come off the hinge pins and can be laid on a flat surface for easier access. Place a layer of towels under the door to prevent damage to the door.

You will need to remove the door handle to get the outer door frame off. To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you may need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Remove the door handle and and locate any screws that may be securing the outer door (front) frame in place. Once you install the new outer door frame, re-install the door handle and carefully re-insert the inner door panel. Gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

To answer your initial question, the microwave should continue to be safe to use as long as the inner door seal and door glass are intact. Make absolutely sure you reinstall the door components back together properly. Not doing so will render the oven unsafe to use. Refer to the web site I provided as a reference for how the door components go back together.

NOTE: This part is listed a bit cheaper at appliancepartspros.com. Use the part number from the first website I mentioned as your search criteria.

I need a replacement door for a built in Baumatic 720 series oven


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.
