Condensation in oven door glass after steam clean

After I used the steam clean feature for the first time on my new Whirlpool range, there is condensation between the glass on the oven door that won't go away. Does this mean a seal problem? I am hesitant to use the self clean not knowing if the oven door seal can be a problem. Any advice appreciated,

Why are there brown/white streaks inside oven door glass after using self cleaner 1 time?


Thank you for your post, friend!

From my understanding after you used the self-clean feature on your Frigidaire range you now have brown and white streaks on the indoor glass. Typically streaks can be removed by cleaning the interior glass. Normally it is recommended to have a professional clean the inside glass but a consumer can do it as well. Use caution when following the steps some pieces can have sharp edges. You will need to have a Phillips head screwdriver or small quad bit driver.

A. Refer to owners guide for instructions on how to remove oven door.


B. With door in broil stop position lift door assembly off hinges.

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 up.

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.

K. One glass that remains in door lining assembly can at this time be cleaned without further disassembly the lining assembly.

L. Reassemble in reverse order.


Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Cleaning glass in oven door


Extend your door hinges and remove entirely over to a table or other flat surface where you can do a step-by-step dis-assembly. Begin by removing the bolts at the bottom of the door, then the main panel and side flanges can be removed. The glass slides out from the tabs and you can give it a good cleaning at this point. Reverse your order to re-assemble, and put your door back on the oven. It's not as bad an exercise as it would appear. Just take your time and watch what you're doing. I used the hinges as a shim, and had it laid out on a pool table for easy, elevated examination.

When I use the convection oven, the glass door totally steams up....is this normal? I don't remember it doing so when it was new, but maybe it did. The condensation is between the glass on the oven door...


It is not normal for this to happen. The seal must be perished or worn allowing moist warm air to come into contact with the cooler outer glass thus condensation is forming on the inside.

It is not a major issue as it will depend on the moisture content of what you are cooking but it will obviously prevent you seeing inside when it occurs.

It is one of those minor irritating things that can happen.

The only way to solve the problem long term is to have the thing resealed as normally it is a mastic seal rather than fibre one.

How to get the glass front back on oven door of Whirlpool range


Ok. Heres what I was dealing with....Dissasembled. NOW (after you scrubbed everything to your liking try this.
1: With the door laying "oven" surface down on a flat surface. Gently place glass sheet/pane down squaring it up evenly as you can.
2: (Might sound strange) Grab the door handle and reposition it where it needs to go and slide the glass in the "ledges". Even everything up square as possible. Insert screws(2), but do NOT tighten all the way.
3: Now you have 2 (L & R) uprights. Insert "handle" end of uprights first, then align carefully the "tips" into the holes, and then snug the oven handle screws.
4: Carefully align the metal "base" channel/seat with the glass so the window/glass seats on the bases slots/shelves. Align all holes and insert screws (4 - 2 screws on both sides of base), finally align the center screw and tighten snug.
5: Replace door on Range Unit ande get cookin again!!

Hope this helps. I think its a poor design to let anything inside the door. Nice Range/Oven unit. Just a bad door design in my opinion.

Oh Yeah. The door hinges only took me 4 months to figure it has built in hinge locks. THEY are VERY convenient and once you know how they work. They are an AWSSOME invention for what they do!!

How do I use the steam clean self-cleaning oven?


The SteamClean option spot cleans the oven in 20 minutes and is recommended for cleaning light spills on the bottom of the oven cavity. When used routinely, the SteamClean option reduces the need for frequent self-clean cycle use. To use the SteamClean option, pour 12 ounces (1 1/2 cup) of water into the bottom of the oven cavity, close the oven door and push the SteamClean button. At the end of the cycle, consumers wipe out the bottom of the oven, easily removing oven soils. The steam cleaning option is eco-friendly and does not require frequent use of the self-clean cycle, which can create a strong odor. Read this in a post about the new whirlpool ranges

I do not have the manual for a Whirlpool SelfCleaning oven Model wcp58580. I just want the instructions on how to get it to the self clean feature. Thanks, Mary


There is something wrong with the model number you've provided. Generally, there is often a door latch to move. Many older units have a door shield which needs to be positioned before starting to protect glass. Set the length of time you'd like the unit to run and set the control to clean. You may also have to set the temperature to clean. If you have a mechanical timer, set it so the stop portion is about 2.5 hours later than the time you're starting the cycle.

If you get the correct model number, you can get access to the manual at whirlpool.com

Whirlpool RF367LXS Ceramic Glass Range not working


Almost every time I run the SELF CLEAN cycle on my Whirlpool Self Cleaning range, it fails to function after completing the self clean cycle, even though it completes the cycle of cleaning and unlocks the door. What I do to solve the problem, I power off the BREAKER for the range at the main electrical panel in the house and wait 30 seconds, then power on....and the whole system works just fine until the next time I clean it. This has been a problem from the beginning. My theory is that the electronics get heated up and, like a computer, the system stalls out and needs a complete hard reboot. Good luck!
