Question about Baumatic B151 Electric Single Oven
Our second inner glass door has shattered - again within minutes on turning oven on, first door replaced under warranty. Oven not used a lot, not overheating, door only cleaned as in manual, immaculate condition, no chips on knocks etc - is this a fault in the glass of this model, or is it being fitted wrongly so the glass is in a stressed state before switching on heat. Have never had problems with glass oven doors before.

The inner glass panel is a part number 316117500
Anyone who services Frigidaire, and some others can get one for you. Here in the midwest I get lots of my parts from C.E. Sundberg Co., based in Chicago. They have this part on hand in Chicago, St. Louis Park (Minneapolis), Omaha, and Milwaukee, and will ship. Cost should be under $100. Even more info than you asked for, sounds like a FixYa, yes?

Disconnect the element, and run the oven for at least 30 mins,,if it does not blow fuse, then more than likely it is a faulty element.
What I cannot understand is that you say the thermostat light is on after the fues has blown? I would have thought that the light would be not be on, if the fuse has blown.
If after replacing fuse and the stat is in the off position, and the indicator light is on then indeed the stat is faulty.
Plz rate my solution.

Unfortunatey, it happens quite frequently, there is no one reason for it to do so.
The only solution is to replace it.
Over a number of years use, the glass looses it's properties, and this is what can happen.

Strangely enough I had exactly the same problem but today managed to fit the new inner glass and door panels without any problems, here is how.
YOU NEED 2 PEOPLE FOR THIS STEP. Open the door, at the top are 2 large plastics flat head screws, undo these making sure your helper is holding the door securely or itll fall on the floor, te door will unhook once the screws are fully undone
Once off you can close the microwave back up.
Now there are two screws, one in each top corner holding a funny looking plastic wing shape that slides into the inner door. They have a star screw head. Undo both of these and remove the plastic wings. When you remove these the panel underneath will try to fall off so be prepared to catch it, along with the plastic screws undone in step 1. This now unhooks like the main door did.
From here you'll be able to see the back of the inner glass. This is held in by a mesh at the back and about 15 screws, star headed again. you can simply remove all of these, that will release the front panel over the inner glass, again, you might want someone to hold the door open so the panel does not drop when you remove the last screws.
Thats it as far as taking the microwave apart. put your new glass in, remembering to make sure the rubber seal is put back between the glass and inner door.
Simply reverse the process.
It took me approximately 1 hour and I am by no means a DIY person.
