Dirt and grease between glass in oven door

I have a Frigidaire smooth top stove about a year old. There is dirt(looks like lint) and grease between the glass in the oven door. It looks bad. Is there a safe way to clean it out?

Re: Dirt and grease between glass in oven door

My husband cleaned this today!! Yahoo--I had over sprayed the glass cleaner and it ran in the vents.
If you pull out the drawer on the bottom, and look up you will find that the glass is being held in at the bottom by a "clamp" & 3 screws, one on each end and in the middle.
After you remove these, the glass front will come off, and you will see the inner door. There is another piece of glass that I cleaned, and now it looks 100 % better. Of course, the door comes apart easier than it goes back together, we had a little trouble lining up the screws. Don;t push the glass on too tight, the screw holes lined up better when there was a little space.

You have to pull the outer glass off door in other words take the door totally apart unless you have the solid glass on the front and then you can just take the outer glass off with several screws around the top and bottom and i think two on each side

I need to replace the glass cooktop on my Maytag electric stove

  1. Open oven door and remove two screws that secure top.
  2. Lift up front and slide forward about 8 inches so that you can disconnect two wire couplings.
  3. Place on table upside down(I put newspaper down to catch the broken shards of glass) and remove burner unit (1piece, 4 screws).
  4. Place old burners on new stovetop in the same position as original.
  5. Remove 4 white plastic shims (round) from old stovetop and put on new stovetop.
  6. Tighten all screws and then sit it back on stove (two front tabs fit into slots) and then insert screws into holes and tighten.
  7. Took about 20 minutes, including vacuuming broken glass from inside burners and cleaning grease form crevices between burners and old stovetop.
  8. Wrap old stovetop in the newspapers that are underneath it and place it all in a plastic garbage bag to avoid any broken glass from falling out.

Is this an oven or the cook top?

A blown oven element is possible. You may still be able to bake but the oven will seem to take forever to warm up. An easy check would be to crank the heat up full bore and put your hand near the top then the bottom. You should feel more intense heat the nearer you get to a working element.

Soup boiked over on stove top

I had some luck removing food and other stains with the new Vielda Glass Ceramic Scrung (its a sponge)

"Special scour sponge for cleaning glass ceramic cook tops without scratching. Eliminates burnt-in stains and greasy dirt film. Removes grease and loose dirt particles. Microfibre side will create a streak free finish."

I found mine at Walmart. It was a little pricey but if you just use the sponge for the stovetop then it will last a very long time.

Hope this helps.

This would require that the door be taken apart. If you attempt this make sure you mark all glass as to which side and position any spacers are in. Each piece of glass has a right and wrong side to face out. There can be up to four pieces of glass used. If installed wrong the outside will get hotter than it should. during the clean cycle.
