Door glass shattered 3 hours after cooking

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?

Thanks in anticipation.

    We have a Rangemaster Toledo XT and had exactly the same problem occur today! The cooker is just over 2 years old and was last used yesterday. For no apparant reason today the glass shattered.

    We have contacted Rangemaster and even though the warranty has ran out they are replacing the glass at no cost. We feel that it is a known fault and therefore Rangemaster caused no problem with replacing it.

    Thank you very much for answering my request, Rangemaster are coming out on a free of charge call to replace the glass, so we'll see what the engineer says then.

    Soapy or anyone else can you please confirm the outcome of this matter. My Rangemaster 110 glass literally exploded all over the kitchen this morning and Rangemaster are wanting to charge over £200 for replacement when this is clearly a design fault with health and safety issues.

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

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.

Would the cooker display panel glass "Just break" when cooking?

The glass is toughened glass and sometimes the heat treat is not even. When this happens, heat stresses can cause it to shatter or if the mounting is pinching on one side.

What is the make and model and I will see if there are any parts available?

Can i fit a glass lid to my Rangemaster Toledo 90? It has never had one fitted and wondering if one can be fitted. Thanks

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.

I have had this cooker since Nov 2013 while cooking sausages 01.02.15 the oven door shattered. I believe this is a design fault

Be careful with glass oven doors, common problem with shattering glass doors is hanging a wet/damp towel on the handle ( as this is the best place for them to dry!) When the oven is hot! . glass is not able to handle such a extreme change in tempetures. Hope this may have answered what could of happened

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.

GE Microwave/Convection Oven - Door Glass Just Exploded!!!

This happened to us 3 weeks ago with our 3 year old Kitchenaid microwave. Several hours after its last use it just shattered. In doing research I discovered that this has also happend with GE microwaves, all 3 years old. The cause seems to have been a batch of defective glass supplied by a third party. Whirlpool was very quick to cover the cost of the replacement, even though our microwave was out of warrantee.

Door glass shattered 3 hours after cooking

The problem is with the glass. They apparently did not use a strong enough tempered glass during manaufacture. I would call the company and tell them what has happened. They should replace it. It must have been a design flaw or something else. They should make it good. They may want to make a recall.
