The problem is that the holding screws that secure the glass in place were most likely OVER TIGHTENED.All the screws around the support holders of the glass have to be tightened just right and the glass can cool off without the pressure that makes it pop.

SOURCE: Replacement of glass top
Check your warranty in the back of your use and care book. If the unit was manufactured prior to 1/1/06 it may have a five year part (not labor) warranty as long as you did not physically abuse it. The glass top comes as an assembled top (glass, the black seal, and the metal frame holding it)
Disconnect power. remove screws under the front edge of cook top. lift cook top and remove crossbars holding burners up against glass top. Unhook cook top / frame assemble. Install new top in reverse order.

SOURCE: broken inner glass door
NO, I would not recommend this at all. However, I have seen the stoves used without one of the inner glasses with no problems. I am a factory servicer for frigidaire and have seen people use these with one of the glasses broken and haven't seen a problem yet. But again, it's not recommended. www.applianceoutletservice.com

You will need a window pack, part number WB56T10152 which is not hard to replace. You should be able to order it right from GE, or an appliance repair firm can get it for you, often without extra shipping if they can combine it with other parts they need to order. Should set you back just over $100. You can remove your oven door to make it easier to work on. Use a little screwdriver to pull down the little square hole you will see on the top of the hinge opening on the frame of the oven on each side. That little metal part will lock the hinge open. Next, lift on the door and pull it toward you. The hinge actually stays with the door and lifts right out of the rectangular opening in the oven frame. Reverse procedure to reinstall repaired door.

This job is best done by two people, one to hold the glass in place, and the other to operate the screwdriver and position the handle and trim pieces.
The glass is held in place by the handle assembly at the top and a metal track at the bottom. You remove the glass by removing the handle. Open the door part way until you have access to the back of the door. The door handle is held in place by two screws on the back (the oven side). Remove the screws, taking care to hold the handle in place. Be sure to brace the glass, then slowly move the handle away from the door frame. Remove the glass. The side trim pieces will probably fall away from the door frame, although they will probably not fall all the way out. My advice is to carefully remove them. Be careful; they have tabs on the bottom edge that hold them in the door frame and these tabs are easily broken. If yours are still in one piece you might just reuse them.
Remove the old glass panel and clear the bottom track of any debris. Put the new glass panel in, beginning with the bottom track. Set the oven handle on the top edge of the glass panel; there are tracks on the back of the handle assembly the top edge of the glass fits into. Bring the handle toward the door frame, taking care not to let the glass panel slip out of the tracks. The door handle has two collars that go through holes in the door frame. Once you've got the collars through these holes, you can put the two screws back in that secure the handle to the door.
Take one of the side trim pieces. Each trim piece has a narrow edge and a wide edge (like a capital "L"), The narrow edge faces the front and the wide edge faces the side of the door. Each piece has a corner edge with a little tab sticking out. These face down. The opposite end of the trim piece has recessed edges. These slide under the edge of the door handle. You want to insert this end first, then work your way along the length of the trim piece pushing the narrow edge between the door frame and the glass panel.
Here's the tricky part. To get the bottom in, the best thing to do is to open (or better yet remove altogether) the drawer beneath the oven to gain access to the screws that hold the bottom track of the glass panel to the door. Loosen the screw that holds the track in on the same side as the trim piece you're working on; the screws are on the bottom of the track about 1 inch in from the edge. Loosen the screw slightly and pull down on that edge of the trim as you push the trim piece in behind the glass. Repeat until the trim piece tab slips through the hole for it on the track. Tighten the screw back in place.
Repeat this process for the other trim piece. If you're patient and gentle, it shouldn't be too difficult. I just did this myself today (2/7/09).
