Re: replace inside oven glass
You can replace the glass if you are somewhat handy, but this is QUITE a project honestly(very time consuming since you have to disassemble and reassemble the whole door to do it). What i would recommend is taking your model number and going to kitchenaid.com click customer service and enter your model in the Locate manuals sections, if you get no results first remove the final number for example kGST307SS2 remove the 2(you will get what i mean with your actual model, which is located when you roll the drawer out on the actual units frame) if you type in KGST307SS2(remember example model) remove the next letter and so on till you get results. The results you want is Use and Care guide, installation instructions (one of the two usually has how to take off the door but NOT how to disassemble it) and the parts list, now the parts lists usually gives a breakdown of the door and where the parts go(id recommend labeling parts with numbers and taking digital pictures just for reference) also the parts lists will give you part numbers etc...order the glass pieces either by calling Kitchend aid 1-800-334-6889 or usually local dealers can get you the parts.
If you think this is to much most service calls range between 40-100$ depending on area, usually average 60-80 from my experiences. you can use the same tab customer service, then in the locate service provider click major appliance, type in your zip and pick gas range and it will give you everyone in the area.

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.
While waiting for someone else to answer my question, I fiddled around with the door parts. I managed to reassemble them! Here's how:
1. start with the glass panel. Slide the glass panel into the slot at the bottom of the front door frame on the stove.
2. next attach the handle. There are slots on the bottom of the handle that fit into the top of the glass panel. Slide the handle slots into the top of the glass panel.
3. screw the handle onto the oven door using the predrilled holes on the inside face of the oven door.
4. last, attach each of the two side trim strips. Slide the top of each strip into the bottom of the handle on each side of the oven door. Then slightly bend the strip outwards so that they are short enough to fit into the bottom slot of the oven door frame on each side of the glass panel.
the glass on this door, is held up only by the lower trim, and sits behind the handle escution(very small contact point) as far as the trim for sides, the slip under top esctution,and behind the door glass(sorta keep the glass from contacting the metal frame of door.} much easier to do with door off of unit, refer to manual as how to remove the door if needed
First take the two inside screws out, (found at the top of the door) they will pop out when you have both sides off so make sure to take them all the way out so you dont lose a washer or one of the screws. The handle is actually secured by these 2 screws and will come off of the door when you remove them.. your metal door can bend slightly in this process, so be careful. as soon as the handle and screws are off you can clean inside of the 2 pieces of glass, also a good time to clean off the opposite side of the door behind the handle. only take the 2 screws off no need to remove the full door. I used a magic eraser to remove the grease and then I cleaned the glass with glass cleaner. I used a small vice to secure the door when putting the handle back on, but you could have someone to hold the piece togeather for you too. (I have a frigidaire stainless steel model)
I'm not familiar with this unit exactly but I'll give you some guidelines. You have a double layer or more of glass and the glass inside the unit is your problem. Generally, cleaning glass on ovens is no problem if you use cleaners that leave no residues, don't stress the glass and don't scratch it. Prepare a flat surface covered with newspaper to clean your glass. You may use a blue glass cleaner, a scrubby or VERY fine steel wool. Never use any cleaner which leaves residue. Use lots of liquid and very little pressure. Finish with a soft cloth. Clean the inside of the door and any of the gasket you can get to. Use only a sponge and detergent unless the area is really a mess.
First, be aware that the door is spring loaded and as you remove items, it will tend to snap closed. Note that there are probably screws that are near the base of the door, probably accessed from below. Remove these first. Then, remove side screws and carefully remove the panel holding the glass. This probably comes out into the room. There is a danger that the glass is not secured inside the panel so have the door fully open when 'dropping' the outside panel. Note the positions of all clips. You may even want to take a digital picture or two. When reassembling, never overtighten anything! All parts should lay flat and insert easily. Get assistance with reassembly...you'll need another pair of hands.
The best way to clean the inner glass is to remove the door from the oven. With the door in the broil open position (first stop) pull up for about 2 inches until the hinge brackets are released from their stops. Close the door all you can and lift the door off the hinges. Lay the door on a padded surface and remove the 4 screws on the bottom. The outside glass will now slide out of its rail and you can clean the inside. To install just reverse the process. If you take your time and observe, it's not that bad of a job...Catriver..post back.
