Glass is glass, breaks for a multitude of reasons, without real obvious problem hard to say why it would crack, It's worth calling the manufacture though, depending on age and a saftey issue involved perhaps they will do somethin for you

The inner glass of my stove broke. Where can I cut a new one??


A local appliance parts supplier might be able to help. Otherwise, you may have to contact the manufacturer/distributor to determine availability and source.

I have 48 " 6 burner stove natural gas.Stove is


the glass in the ovens should not crack when self clean is used. it could be that there was a minut crack in the glass or a build up of moisture in between to door windows that expanded at the extra heat but this should be brought up with the manufacturer for replacement.

I hope this was useful.

Used self cleaning feature of my electric Maytag Gemini stove. Lower oven glass window in door basiciall cracked into thousnads of small pieces. What did I do wrong and how do I get the stove fixed?


You didn't necessarily do anything wrong. The glass may have been banged at some point and weakened it. The only thing you can do is call an appliance parts store with your model and serial numbers and get them to look up the price and availabilty of the lower oven, inner glass. If you can get the door off the range, and it should come off, it may be more reasonable for you to take the door into the shop where you ordered the glass and get them to put it in for you.

Self cleaning caused interior glass to crack


hi there,

this is called thermal breakage. basically, when the mfg. makes the glass, they either don't cook it long enough or let it harden long enough during manufacturing. remember, the glass is supposed to withstand over 1200 degrees, which is temperature during self cleaning. have a technician replace the door glass, as warranty should cover this.

thanks

Glass top range cookware


Here's the recommended cookware for glass top ranges:

Aluminum and Copper - have good heating characteristics, but may leave metal transfer marks on the glass.

Stainless - may take longer to heat and may not heat as evenly (some stainless has a copper liner to aid in heat transfer). More resistant to leaving metal transfer marks.

Baked Enamel - great heating characteristics, provides uniform heating and resists marks on glass surface.

Cast Iron - NOT recommended due to the weight of the metal. Can cause potential cracks or breakage.

Now, any reference to metal transfer marks are merely disclaimers from most manufacturers that the potential exists that the cookware could leave marks on the stove surface. Using a good cook-top cleaning product after the surface cools will aid in removing any of these marks. This does not mean this cookware should not be used.

All cookware used on glass cook-tops should have flat bottoms. There should be no ridges, grooves, or warping. This creates an uneven heat transfer between the pan and surface and can potentially cause the glass to break. Most manufacturers will not honor a warranty where it can be determined that the consumer used the wrong cookware.

Make sure you wipe up any spills on the stove surface that contains sugars or milk. These ingredients (if allowed to burn on the surface and are not cleaned up) will eventually cause damage to the glass surface by either removing the finish or leaving pits and cracks. Wipe up all spills AFTER the surface has been allowed to cool using a non-abrasive cleaning rag or sponge. The green scrubbing pads are considered non-abrasive and CAN be used. DO NOT use steel wool or SOS pads! A small straight blade razor can be used to remove stubborn items by gently scraping in one direction. I don't believe you can use any cleaning product that contains ammonia either.

All of this information can be found in the owners manual that came with the appliance. If you don't have a user/owner's manual, post back with your model number and I'll see if I can locate it for you. I hope this helps you.

Interior Range Window cracked - How to Replace


It is simple enough not to need a manual.
1- open the door, then pull outwards. The door mounts slide right out.
2- lay flat on a towel on the floor. Remove screws on the inside of the door.
3- remove each piece and layer of the door and glass panels. Set them aside in order so you know how it goes back together
4- replace broken inner glass panel
5- put each piece back together, install screws
6- slide door (mounts) back into their homes on the front of the range

It is surprisingly simple. All you need is a #2 Phillips screwdriver and a bit of patience.

Tip: make sure to clean each glass panel while you have the door apart. Use a razor blade for those stubborn burnt on stains.
