G E Profile walloven

Yesterday I spilled a cup of coffee with milk and sugar. It ran down the oven door and leaked between the two layers of glass on the door. How do I take the door apart to clean between the two layers of glass? I don't really want to pay for a service call, for a cleaning job. Thanks for the help.

Unfortunately, you will probably have to call for service. It is a very detailed task with many screws, seals and insulation involved.

How to clean inside glass oven door

Taking the door off the oven and lay door on a soft surface so as to prevent scratching ,taking the door apart ( Carefully ), allow for a large work space, lay out your screws, the glass you are trying to reach is an inner glass, so obviously self clean is not going to help. Good luck!

Range/Stove/ Oven Door Glass Replacement

I see many questions come up at about oven door glass that has broken and how to replace the glass. For many ovens it is a relatively simple task. It will take about an hour for most people, depending on the skill level, and the type of door.

To do this job you should have handy a screwdriver, usually a Philips head medium sized, a plastic tarp, especially if your glass in the door is already broken, and of course the new glass. It is also a good idea to measure the new piece of glass to make sure that it is close in size before taking the door apart.

For your safety, make sure that the power is turned off to the oven before starting this job also. The open the oven door and remove the screws on the inside face of the door. If the door can be remove easily you can remove it, but it is not necessary to do that. Make sure that you place the pieces of the door as they come off and the screws in a place to keep them organized for when you put everything back together.

For most ovens you will find the oven glass held in by tabs, similar to a picture frame. Pull the tabs back to release the glass. Carefully remove the old glass from the frame. If it is broken, be very careful not to cut yourself. Also contain the glass on the trap to make cleanup easier. For many newer ovens, you will have three layers of glass. Do the same process for each layer.

When the old glass is removed, then simply replace each layer of glass and press the tabs back in place for each one. Then replace the brackets or inside pieces of the door, and secure with the screws.

This is how easy it is to replace the glass for many of the ovens.

Another word about broken glass in ovens…..
Many of the people that have broken glass state that it broke after running the self-clean feature of their oven. For many of you this warning will be too late…but for those of you that see this before, be warned!

Outside door glass has slid down

Sounds like the door gasket/seal has pulled away from the rest of the door frame and layers. You might be able to take the door off of the hinges, and cabinet, and take apart the layers to readjust.

First, you will need a heavy blanket to place the door on once you have removed it from the oven. Open the door slightly, until it stays open by itself, about 15 degrees. Lift the oven door off of the hinges and place on the heavy blanket. (The hinges may snap shut when you pull the door up and off, but this is actually normal. It takes a bit of finesse to get the door back on the hinges if they will not stay out.)

Remove the 4 screws across the bottom of the door. Next, stand the door up with the bottom on the blanket and the front facing you.(Hold the door by gripping firmly around the middle edges to maneuver door)

Now, while holding the handle, remove the 2 screws that hold the handle on, unscrewing them just enough until the handle is free. (You do not want the spacers dropping off the screws) Hold the door together with one hand while placing the handle out of your way.

Once again, grab the door firmly by the middle outer edges and lie the door down, the inside facing down. You should be able to lift up the outer panel and glass and clean the inside of the outer glass.

Reverse the above procedure to reassembly the door. You can also take the door apart further if you have stains inside the other glasses. Here is a link to a schematic for your oven door.

If I DO NOT want to use the self cleaning feature is there any other safe way, including using soap and water, to clean the oven without ruining it? (I don't want to use the self cleaning feature)

  1. Oven door : Wash the door and window with soap and water and rinse with clear water. Use glass cleaner only if sprayed on a cloth first. Do not use abrasive pads, powdered cleaners, or steel wool on glass and enamel, or the surfaces will be scratched.
  2. surface burner : To absorb a spill when it is hot, pour salt on it and wipe it up when the oven has cooled. A mildly abrasive baking soda and water paste can be used in the oven, too.
  3. Racks:Remove oven racks and clean them in warm, soapy water. Stubborn messes can be cleaned by using mild abrasive cleansers or a soap filled scouring pad. Rinse and dry the racks before returning them to the oven.
  4. Metal trim:Metal trim can be cleaned with glass cleaners or mild cleansers, soap and water. Abrasives or cleaners made for oven interiors should not be used.

Spills in between glasses of the oven door.

The door must be taken apart at least most of the way to clean glass. Just so you know, this is a problem with a LOT of the newer makes and models. If there are 2 screws behind the handle, take them out and some of them come apart enough to get your hand a paper towel in to clean. Otherwise, the door must be removed and completly diss-assembled.

Glass window cleaning!

You have to remove the inside skin of door, pull door up and off of hinges and lay on floor to make this easier. Then you remove clips or brackets that hold the glass to door and clean. Very simple, but time consuming, mainly lining skin back up on reassembley.
