Re: Grease in between glass on oven door
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.

The door usually has about 4 to 8 screws on the inside. Remove the door first by opening it to 45' and lift it off its hinges. Sit it on top of the stove carefully after putting an old towel and a garbage bag on top of it. Remove the screws in the door and the inside will lift off the outside skin. Clean the glass with oven cleaner and reassemble. Ours needs doing too!
Good Morning Suzi - Generally,
qualified technicians often perform complicated part replacement such as this,
however this may or may not be specifically for your model. Below are generic instructions
that I found on how to take your oven door apart to remove any stains that may
be caught down in the door vents.
needed: Phillips head screwdriver or small quad bit driver.
A. Open Door remove 2 screws and washers on door lining at door hinge area.
B. Refer to owners guide with door in broil stop position lift door assembly
C. Lay door on table, position so that handle hangs freely over edge of table
D. Remove 2 screws and washers that secure handle to lining assembly.
E. Remove 8 screws that attach textured steel door wrapper trim to lining
assembly 3 at top, 3 at bottom, 1 on each side
F. Lift door lining up and out of wrapper trim assembly.
G. Lay lining assembly on table with wool shield/inner part of lining facing
H. Remove 2 glass clamps via 2 screws per clamp. These clamps attach innermost
clear glass to wool shield.
I. Lift out center clear glass from wool shield, this glass just lays onto the
wool shield and is held in place by the glass/ clamps in item H.
J. Clean each glass with appropriate cleaner, Windex, bon ami, fantastic, etc
K. One glass that remains in door lining assembly can at this time be cleaned
without further disassembly the lining assembly.
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.
umm. there will always be some assemblence of grease on the door glass, if its on the inner most panel and you can scrub it off, then i would reccomned using a razor blade lying flat to scrape it off, however if it has developed within the panel(s) of glass then the only remedy is to dissassmeble the door and glean them that way.. there was some conflict as to the age of your machine in your description, you say "3-hour cycle for the first use late last spring, if I remember correctly--whatever the directions said to do for the first time, a 4-hour cycle after Thanksgiving last fall and a 3-hour cycle for the second cleaning a couple of days ago since it wasn't very dirty"" so i cant be a mont old??? reason i say is that is the unit you purchased probably come with a pretty kickin warr and the manufacture will want ot make good on your issue if you cant resolve it, betterchance though if only 1 month not 11
all oven doors collect grease to some extent, depending on which pane of glass actually got dirty will determine how difficult it is. your owners manual shoudl describe how to remove the oven door, after that, layont it o nthe table and carefully reomving the screws from along bottom panel you should be able to ge tto your dirty glass, might take a few screws, just dissasmble slowly, dont overtigthen screws and above all remembrer how your taking apart for reassmbly
