On our 22 month old Rangemaster Professional 110 gas cooker, we heard a loud shatter then the tinkling of glass as the pieces fell down inside the door. The oven had been used some 3 hours before. Any one know the reason for this, is it a manufacturer issue or just bad luck?
There are no holding screws on rangemaster oven door glasses, they are held on by clips, simple fact is that if you have a glass door it can shatter full stop, it can also seem like it has shattered for no reason whatsoever, they do that on any brand you care to mention, I can tell you though that Rangemaster acted on what they thought was too many doors shattering to make them better, its also worth noting that Rangemaster has a far lower threshold of faults than most other manufacturers, meaning that if there is a problem it doesnt usually last long, unlike some other brands....... and no, I am not a Rangemaster employee :-D

Re: Door glass shattered 3 hours after cooking
The problem is that the holding screws that secure the glass in place were most likely OVER TIGHTENED.All the screws around the support holders of the glass have to be tightened just right and the glass can cool off without the pressure that makes it pop.

No not if it has never had one fitted by the manufacturer as it wont have a safety device fitted to close the gas supply in the advent that the lid is closed while a burner is still a light which would shatter the safety glass and cause injury to the user. Some glass lidded cookers where imported to England when i was an apprentice gas engineer and no safety device fitted and the lids exploded and where soon made illegal.
Hi there folks It also happened to me, so after ringing rangemaster they said it can happen due to faults in the glass, unfortunately my warranity had run out and they wanted t charge a fortune to repair. so i had a look inside the door my self which is only four screws on the sides to remove the outer skin to find it was a single piece of ordinary toughend glass about 300mm x 300mm fixed in place with six clips like the ones you find one those glass picture frames, i got a new piece from me local glass merchants for less than £10 and it took only mins to fix job done, I hope this help someone and it my save you quite a bit of cash Cheers folks Markbricky
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.
We have the same problem on a Rangemaster Toledo 110. It is not a fuse.
The 'Hot' light still comes on because that is a different (parallel) circuit.
Examination by a competent electrician has found that the soldering for the wires that power the warming metal strip under the glass is faulty. You will have to ask for a replacement part.
There may be a design flaw, so you might want to enquire about the professional all gas burner top and just use the griddle as a warming plate over the second wok burner.
The left hand oven needs a new flame failure device fitted , it is a normal oven not for slow cooking . This repair can only be carried out safely by a registered Gas Safe engineer . Visit WWW.gasSafeRegister.co.uk or ring freephone 0800 408 5500 to find one in your area.
