Question about Ovens

1 Answer

The front glass blew out of it! Completely shattered and no one had touched it. Now we need to clean it up. I suppose we need to take off the door and get a new one. OR do we get a new glass plate and repair it? How do we take off the door and/or replace the glass? Please help.

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

Since you did not include a model number this solution will be from the hip as I can not refer to any manuals to assist you. Most ovens the oven door comes off by tilting the door out to the first stop and then lifting is vertical inline with the position of the hinge at the bottom of the door. Some of them may have retaining screws on the inside of the door to keep the door attached to the hinge area that must be removed FIRST. The hinge itself should stay attached to the oven.

I can probably provide you with a source (Maybe more than one) for the door glass if you respond with a model number,

When you attempt to take the door apart lay it down on 2 rugs so you do not scratch it. Use some blocks of wood UNDER the rugs to prop the door up so as not to damage the handle.

The door glass is replaced by removing the screws from the indide of the door. Sometimes you have to remove the trim pieces in addition to the multiple door panels. Everything is done from the inside of the door. You must take out the inner panel, Then the inner glass, then the spacer, the insulation if any and finally the outer door glass. Reassembly is in reverse order. Outer glass, spacer, insulation if any inner glass, the inner panel and re-install the trim if you had to remove it.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I've got a rattan Outsunny cube patio set. My glass on the table shattered in the hot weather and I've been trying to get in touch with Outsunny to complain about it. Can you help me please.


Armoured glass is used for table tops, oven tops etc. To get the glass to break/shatter, it requires temperatures exceeding 200 degrees Centigrade and then cooled quickly in one spot or something has been dropped on it.

The main oven inner glass door panel has shattered


Unfortunatey, it happens quite frequently, there is no one reason for it to do so.
The only solution is to replace it.
Over a number of years use, the glass looses it's properties, and this is what can happen.

Frigidaire Self Cleaning Electric Oven - Inner glass shattered, need part and instructions for door


It isn't that tough to change the glass assembly. Most of the Frigidaire have 4 screws that hold the front of the door to the inner part- sandwiching the glass in between. It is only sold as a unit- 2 glass pieces, assembled with an aluminum frame. Call All brands Appliance parts at 508-587-7100 and they'll get the part out to you. (Tell them Greasy Wheels sent ya, they'll take good care of you.) The most common reason the glass breaks, is a scratch in the glass. Sometimes it's just a dragged pan, other times it's from cleaning it with a sharp instrument. Don't do that....

Microwave door shattered


This is not a job you should do. Microwaves are dangerous things and can cause injury. An improperly fitted door will leak. A new door, installed and checked out by a technician is needed here The economics are beyond my area.
