Re: how to replace inner oven door
Generally, the job is just alot of screws. Depending on the model, most screws are found either inside the door or on the lower edge. Some models...mostly GEs... have a way of removing the door from the hinge. Doors are heavy and are usually spring counterweighted.
Is it an easy job? Depends...if you're mechanically inclined it is straight forward. You will need an assistant as these doors do come apart and they are heavy. Often, the manufacturer or a parts house has an exploded diagram to let you see what you're facing.
Oh, and use a good quality screw driver and apply pressure when turning out screws. You don't want to ruin the heads!

Hi, it sounds like you put the door on yourself? The inner glass of my oven door (less than 1 year old) shattered when I put it in cleaning mode. We had to call a serviceman which fortunately was a part of the warranty we purchased and he said it could have been a microscopic fault in the glass, but he replaced it and it's been good to go. I've never heard of installing the door yourself for an oven, but even so, I just thought I would share our experience. It's a dangerous situation since it could shatter outwardly and hurt you or someone else so you might want to ask for a service person to come and look at it. Hope this helps!
You should be able to repair your existing door.
Have a look around the perimeter of the door to see if there are any screws, particularly near the handle. You are looking to take the front fascia off the door, so that you can access the inside. Most doors have the front fascia held on by small brackets glued to the back of the glass that clip on to a fixing on the internal door. The top of the fascia is normally held in place by the handle.
Once you have the front of the door off you can retrieve the piece of glass that has fallen out. You will almost certainly find that the glass has come away from the adhesive that was used to hold it in place.
You will need to clean up the glass and the metal door and re-stick the glass using a high temperature oven door glue
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.
Normally there is a clip on both door hinges to allow easy door removal.
Once door is removed place on a towel on a flat surface. You will find a couple of screws on the top of the door and possibly underneath. Unscrew these and the two halves of the door should come appart. The inner glass is held in place with high temperatute oven sealant. You will need to thoroughly scrape the old sealant from inside inner door and on glass.
Apply sealant bead to inner door (but not too close to the edge) and then gently lower the cleaned glass on to the sealant. Press down gently. Now the sealant must have 24hrs to completely set so place a towel over the glass and place some heavy objects on the towel. House bricks are good if you have any.
Once dry you can then screw both door panels together and refit oven door.
Has the inner glass come away from the metal inner door?
If yes, then there are two ways to do this. The first is to buy a new inner door and fit it to your outer door. The second is to get a tube of high temperature sealant and repair the existing door. To repair it you'd have to take the door off the oven and take it apart. Easier than it sounds. Once
the door is off and taken apart, it's a case of take the glass off,
clean the glass and the metal, apply the sealant, place the glass on
top and then put a weight on it for 24 hours to set. Then rebuild the door and refit it to the appliance.
To get to the glass on the inside of the door you need to do the steps listed.
1. Open door 4" and pull straight up at that angle
2. Lay door on flat surface with the handle down to surface.
3. Remove all screws that you see .
4. The inner housing should be removable now.
Then you should see the glass. Reverse the steps to put back together.
Not sure if you still need to get your oven door off still but I have the same oven and have spent the last several hours trying to remove it and searching the web to discover how to remove it until I have just discovered a wonderful video tutorial on YouTube www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSzc4Uqbbr8 that discribes exactly how to do it (just copy and paste it into your address bar. It is the fourth and final instruction in the video but it really is easy. The hinge is a latching over system type that folds back into the glass apparently. Just get a screwdriver and where the end of the hinge dissappears into the housing of the oven just flick up the hinge with the screwdriver and the locking mechanism folds back towards you and the glass. Once both are done just jiggle and pull up the door and it will remove easily....godsend!
