For basic cleaning, use a non-abrasive cleanser or detergent and water. Clean the oven frame, oven door outside of the gasket and the gap in the gasket. (Don't clean the gasket.) With a damp sponge (with detergent if needed), wipe up any spills in the oven. (Sugary or acidic spillovers could damage the porcelain.) Wipe up any grease that spilled in the oven. Wipe the control panel with a damp cloth then dry. Clean the oven door with detergent and water. Clean the window or glass with detergent and water or glass cleaner. Use care to keep the water from seeping behind the window.
Next if you want to do a self-cleaning cycle. Remove the oven racks, the broiler pan and any other pans or items that are in the oven. Close the oven door. Press the Clean pad and then press Autoset(0) button to get the length of time to run the cleaning cycle. Press 2 or 4 to shorten or lengthen the cleaning cycle. After 5 seconds the door will lock and the cleaning cycle will begin. The door will remain locked until after the oven cools down (at least an hour after the cycle ends). Wipe up any white ash after the oven door unlocks. If you want the cleaning cycle to be delayed, press the Stop pad within 5 seconds of setting the length of the cleaning cycle. Use the number pads to set the time that you want the oven to end the cleaning cycle. (Make sure that it is later in the day with sufficient time to run the cleaning cycle.)
You have 2 pieces of glass that are separated by a frame then sealed. What has happened the seal has been broken and thus allowing air and grease inside. You can take it apart but the grease will come back, or you can buy a repalcement glass and be done with it. The question is, do you want to go to the trouble of cleaning the glass (1-2 hours of disassembly and assembly) probably once every 2 months depending on how often you use the oven, or buy a new one and it will always be clean. One caution, cleaning the glass periodically weakens and flexes the metal frame or band thus making it harder to properly seat the glass.
To dismantle the kitchenaid pro line oven door: there is a lever over the hinges that attach a door to the oven. The lever is right on top of the hinge. Pull the lever up. When that lever is in the up position, you can pull the door out.
Sounds familiar. I saw this thread this afternoon while trying to clean my own oven window. My sense is it is definitely a design flaw. It's just too easy to drip something down the top door vents onto the inside of the multiple glass panes.
Here's what I did. I removed the door, following the manual instructions. Open the door to 1/4 and lift it up. Then I put it down on a soft surface and started removing screws until it came apart. It wasn't too complicated though it took some time. Be sure to keep track of your screws as you do this as there are a few different kinds.
