Question about Kitchen Ranges
I need to dismantle the door on my GE oven. It has a lot of gunk in it from using the self cleaning oven feature. It looks awful and needs to be cleaned in between the glass on the outside and inside. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Go to the Dollar Tree and get you a $1 bottle of Awesome. It is truly a wonderful cleaner. I used it to clean my oven door when I rented my house out.

First, determine what this gook is. If it is grayish, it is ash and can be removed with a rag and plain water. You'll always find ash as a byproduct of the cleaning. If it seems to be oven grease and is located in the gasket or gasket area ONLY, get some WD 40 and spray it on the gunk. Let it loosen up and remove it with a rag. You may need multiple applications. If possible, follow up with a soap solution to remove as much of the WD 40 residue as possible. Note, this may cause some smoking when the oven is next cleaned. Be sure to ventilate the area well while using this or any other solvent. Do not use the solvent on glass, it may discolor when heated. Use a standard glass blue liquid glass cleaner or water. If the glass won't clean easily, you may use a WET mild abrasive pad or steel wool VERY gently...so as not to scratch the glass. Follow up with a dampened rag. Anything you leave on the glass will be baked on...so make it clean! You may also use this procedure in the gasket area on the porcelain. Porcelain is a glass-based paint. It should not be scratched. Be patient.
Be aware that if you take door apart that the door is counter balanced. Removing a significant amount of weight by taking off pieces of the assembly may cause it to slam closed. Each of the two thicknesses of glass are mounted separately. Usually, there are some kind of clips holding the glass. Note that there is often fragile insulation inside the door. Avoid touching it or breathing in any dust it may emit. You may need a second pair of hands to align the door front and the bolt holes when re-assembling.
In the future, do not wait too long between cleanings. Use a rag to remove heavy spillage as soon as you find it, don't wait for a cleaning cycle. If your oven is very dirty, use a 3 hour setting or longer to finish the job if you have goo left in your oven after the cycle.
