The glass door fell off. It looks like it was held togather for glue. Now the oven door does not stay open when it is open all the way down. If I glue the door back on, would the door stays open? What glue do I use?

Re: GE Profile range oven door
Theres a bottom trim that installs from under the doorwith 3 phillips screws, this is what holds the door in place. it probably rests under the hanndlesupport and is held up by this strip, take a close look at bottom of door and you see the removable metal strip..

Hello. Notice in pic 2 of the exploded diagram of the door, part 359 which is the bottom door trim, part# WB07K0379. I believe this holds the glass in the door if I'm thinking of the right model oven. The glass door steel cover (designation 314) is WB57K10049. I'm not sure if your glass panel was glued to the steel cover--that's why I gave the part number for it--just in case it can't be repaired. If you need more info or part numbers, leave a comment and I'll be glad to help you further!
The only way to clean this is to disassemble the door. Begin by opening the door about 1/3 and grabbing both sides. then pull and the entire door will come off in your hands. look for the screws that hold the door together. remove them and you can carefully separate the door and the glass to clean it.
Unplug or flip breaker to the range. Remove wire around glass bulb protector by sliding one side out of clip while holding onto glass protector so it doesn't fall into the oven and break. Unscrew old bulb, replace with new one. Hold glass bulb protector over the bulb and hook wire back into its clip. Voila! Back in business. (I didn't unplug it, but discovered that you can't turn off the bulb, so it shines in your eyes while the oven door is open. Also, very stupid thing to do, since the bulb could very easily have broken in my very clumsy hand and given me a bad shock. So do it right, and unplug!)
youlls need to remove the door forom the unit and disassemble the outer door glass, not a major deal, al ittle patience will get it done if oyou would like to know how to do it exaclty youll need to send me the model number so i can look it up for a part diagram..
You will need a window pack, part number WB56T10152 which is not hard to replace. You should be able to order it right from GE, or an appliance repair firm can get it for you, often without extra shipping if they can combine it with other parts they need to order. Should set you back just over $100. You can remove your oven door to make it easier to work on. Use a little screwdriver to pull down the little square hole you will see on the top of the hinge opening on the frame of the oven on each side. That little metal part will lock the hinge open. Next, lift on the door and pull it toward you. The hinge actually stays with the door and lifts right out of the rectangular opening in the oven frame. Reverse procedure to reinstall repaired door.
the old exploding door ploy... 01:00 hrs while sipping on a very fine IPA watch a bit of tellie the sound of glass shattering startles me from the kitchen. preparing to find the daughter's cat, still in the house after evaded bed time radar, on the counter. instead the front glass on the our GE Profile gas range, model JGB908SEK1SS, is slowly spider webbing into pieces. i grabbed the video camera and captured the event. GE sent out a repair guy to quote me a whopping $304.27 to replace their faulty part. foot note here...the range is four yrs old and hadn't been used in more than 24 hrs prior to the glass on the door shattering. i don't believe the glass had a "fracture to it in the production cycle at the factory". being a DIY guy the service tech ordered the replacement part for me. i just received the replacement glass from GE and it's white which would be OK if we hadn't ordered it in stainless steal. did i mention it's taken 2 months to get the replacement glass. i've attached a photo of the cleaned door awaiting installation. i really wish it had been the cat...
