    Liquid became trapped between glass on oven door. can the door be disassembled safely without compromising it function?

    we have the same problem. It is definitely a design flaw. There has to be some way to get between glass and clean it

    Same thing...every time we use the self-clean option! Our kitchen looks clean all with the exception of these white streaks on the inside of our oven. I'm going to follow the advice of the person whose door unfortunatley shattered. Wish us luck!

    I have the GE JSP46W0D2WW as of July 2003 and none of these posts applied to me. I figured out how to disassemble the door and have now cleaned both the removable glass panel and the front face of the window in the oven door itself. Obviously whoever designed this range did not understand that condensate from the vents will drip onto the inner face of the front glass panel and the oven door. He also did not know that the white plastic handle and its surround cannot be cleaned. Also that these would become scorched over time in some places due to heat exhaust from the oven. I could go on... 1. Anyway, first remove the door. This is very easy and is described in your owner's manual. You simply open the door a few inches - the hinges will come to a stop point. Grasp either side of the door and pull upward evenly. The door will slide out of the hinge bracket. 2. Lay the door flat, glass side down, on a tabletop that you have protected with thick cardboard or an old rug. 3. Remove the four screws from tabs along the bottom edge of the door.l 4. On each side of the door, remove the two widely spaced screws (not the two closely spaced screws at the top of the side edge). 5. Carefully lift off the inner oven door. Don't forget to clean the outside window. 6. Now you can get at all the grunge that is otherwise inaccessible, including the awful crud along the bottom edge of the door. I was not able to remove the glass panel from its track at the bottom edge, but if you work from one side to the other a few times with degreaser, old toothbrushes, and toothpicks, you can root out most of what has collected there. When you put the door back together, first align the tabs along the bottom edge of the door, then loosely replace the screws. Do the same with the screws in the side edges.Tighten all screws. Replacing the door is even easier than removing it. Make sure each hinge bracket is angled out to its natural stop point - as if you had the oven door partly open. Align the slots in the door with the hinge brackets - you may want to have a helper eyeball this. Push the door down evenly until it stops. Nothing seems to snap or spring back into place, but the door is secure. I think there is a pressure fit with the brackets. Good luck to you!

We cleaned the inside of our glass door today, it was easy but unfortunately we had a problem. Hopefully this will help you avoid the problem we had which shattered the outside glass on the door.
1) Open the door all the way, but put some support under the door to prevent it from dropping. It helps if you have someone else support the 2 halves of the door.
2) There are 2 screws on the top inside of the door. Carefully loosen both screws. This will detach the front of the door from the back and allow you to clean it. BUT, this is important: Do not allow the inside of the door the swing back toward the closed position as this will cause the glass to shatter.
3) Open the 2 halves of the door only enough to get your hand in and clean the glass. Avoid moving the doors while cleaning and avoid excessive pressure on the clean when cleaning.
4) Once you finished the cleaning carefully place the doors back together and tighten the screws.

    Very good advice on not letting the oven door close while cleaning it. I placed a large cardboard box on the door to prevent it from slamming closed. I also placed a smaller cardboard box under the door to prevent the door face and glass from falling before loosening the 2 top screws (that also hold the handle). Take care not to move the handle around on the front of the door while trying to re-attach the handle as it will scratch the front of the door.

All I know is you would need to be careful because isn't there insulation in the side of the door?

SOURCE: Clean Oven Door Glass

It is much more complicated than that. There are usually more screws once you take out the first 5. There are a total of 3 panes of glass inside the door. If you are very careful to note how the door comes apart once you've removed the screws, then you will be able to do this yourself. Just be aware that this is going to be more complicated than it looks. Lay the door on your counter or floor with the outside of the door up. Take out all the screws around the outer egde of the door. Lift by the handle and turn the top half of the door over so the handle side is on your counter. You will see 2 panes of glass held by the same bracket on each side. You only need to take one of the brackets off and remove both pieces of glass. Now you can clean the inner most piece of glass. Then clean the 2 you removed and put them back. Now reasssemble the door in the reverse steps. Make sure that all insulation and seals are back in place.

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.

Kitchen aid double convection oven - glass needs cleaning!


Had to remove the screws on the BOTTOM of the outside door, then panel came off after all the screws (inside oven door included) were off...
Reversed the order to put back on.. Cleaned (all) three glass pieces nicely... Now after reading the problems with the self cleaning part (doors getting stuck!) - I'm afraid to try mine!

Frigidaire double oven - stove top oven had a spill. The spill went through the bottom oven's door vents and is now in between the glass and I cannot get to it to clean. How can I get this glass clean?


I had a similar problem with a spill running into the vent and between the glass. I had to take the door apart clean it and then put it back together. It sounds hard, but it was just a few screws and a little time.

Staining between glass in oven doors of Kenmore electric stove


I had the same problem with my Kenmore elite. Also told they would not cover it under the warrenty. Seems like alot have this issue with these inner glass panels.
It is a nightmare to remove the glass yourself.
But before you go and pay $150 for a service tech, try this:

Under the oven door there are large vents. If you remove the bottom drawer, you can get better access to them. Or you can remove the oven door entirely and lay it on a blanket...this is not that hard to do.

Buy a bottle cleaner brush with an extra long handle.
Tightly tie a sock around this and spray all over it with Windex. Push thru the vents and wipe, wipe, wipe.
It might take awhile to get it all clean, but it works.
You will need a long handle though..and something flexible. So that bottle cleaner brush works well.

I did it about 6 months ago and worked great.

Unfortunately, just recently I cleaned my oven after allt he holiday cooking spills.
And voila...tons of dark streaks running down the inner glass.
So I will do the windex trick again.

They do need to come up with something better considering the costs of these ovens!!

Self cleaning oven


It may have sliders inside the oven door .Open the door and look at each side for metal slide plates that when pulled upward they seal off the glass for self cleaning. If you dont have those ,I just wasted alot of typing.

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.
