You'll need:

Silcone sealant - has to be high temperature and costs lots more than normal sealant.
Sealant gun - cheap, about £2.99
Clamps or a brick depending on whether you can remove your whole oven door. If you can, you'll only need a brick!
Screwdrivers - to remove screws.
General cleaning stuff like washing up liquid, scrubbing sponges, cloths etc.

Optional:
Glass scraper for removing baked on grease.
step 1:--First, locate all screws! To locate the screws remove the bottom oven tray drawer.
Once removed, you need to get down on your knees and get out that screwdriver. remove two screws under the door by the hinges and the second set down the sides of the oven.
step 2Remove the sealant The old silcone sealant has to be removed completely before you can reapply it. use an old flat head screwdriver to peel the sealant off. Be very careful when you do this, it takes a little pressure to get the screwdriver under the old sealant and if you slip you'll have a screwdriver in your hand. You could also use a craft knife or similar but whatever you use try not to hurt yourself.

You can pretty much take the stuff off in one go. Once you're done you can carry on using the screwdriver to remove the last bits - any scratches at this point will only give the new sealant extra places to fix into so don't worry too much if you take off any paint.
Generally it's a good idea to remove the screws on the hinges so you can remove the whole door, clean the glass proper then you need to run right round the oven with the sealant so that it is thick enough to form a seal around the glass and the oven. Since I had extra and I never wanted to use the stuff again (plus it dries out) I went round it a second time once the glass was clamped in place to make a full seal. Put the cleaned glass back in place There's no need to rush about putting the glass back in place - sealant takes a while to set.

Get it roughly lined up and put it back in place. If you're doing this on a flat surface, something simple like a house brick put gently on the glass will probably do just a good a job for putting pressure on,

As you can see the glass cleaned up nicely. run a second line of beading round the glass to make sure the seal was complete.

The sealant needs to set for 24hrs! Then you can reassemble your oven and you're done!

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

The front glass of the oven door fell off, didn't break....but, how do I put it back on? Was it just glued?


Hello. Notice in pic 2 of the exploded diagram of the door, part 359 which is the bottom door trim, part# WB07K0379. I believe this holds the glass in the door if I'm thinking of the right model oven. The glass door steel cover (designation 314) is WB57K10049. I'm not sure if your glass panel was glued to the steel cover--that's why I gave the part number for it--just in case it can't be repaired. If you need more info or part numbers, leave a comment and I'll be glad to help you further!

If you can smell the gas when you turn on the oven, it may be on a separate igniter that has gone bad. I would check this first. If you are not getting gas to the oven, there is possibly an issue with the supply line.
