The old exploding door ploy...
01:00 hrs while sipping on a very fine IPA watch a bit of tellie the sound of glass shattering startles me from the kitchen. preparing to find the daughter's cat, still in the house after evaded bed time radar, on the counter. instead the front glass on the our GE Profile gas range, model JGB908SEK1SS, is slowly spider webbing into pieces. i grabbed the video camera and captured the event. GE sent out a repair guy to quote me a whopping $304.27 to replace their faulty part. foot note here...the range is four yrs old and hadn't been used in more than 24 hrs prior to the glass on the door shattering. i don't believe the glass had a "fracture to it in the production cycle at the factory". being a DIY guy the service tech ordered the replacement part for me. i just received the replacement glass from GE and it's white which would be OK if we hadn't ordered it in stainless steal. did i mention it's taken 2 months to get the replacement glass. i've attached a photo of the cleaned door awaiting installation. i really wish it had been the cat...Exploding Door - 77f7f82.jpg

How to clean a ge spectra electra xl44 series stove. Just slide door lever from left to right, and turn oven to clean, and forget about it. ???? anything else to do ? Nothing to spray inside oven...


Hello,
    Self Cleaning

  1. Remove oven racks and soak them in soapy water.

  2. Turn on your automatic oven cleaner; this usually entails locking the door and turning the function switch to "clean."

  3. Let the oven do its work; it will heat for several hours, charring off baked-on foods
  4. Fast Cleaning
  5. 1 Remove oven racks and place them in soapy water to soak.
  6. 2 Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  7. 3 Turn the oven off and spray the inside with oven cleaner.
  8. 4 Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  9. 5 Wipe the cleaner and dirt away with a damp sponge, rinsing frequently.
  10. 6 Dry with a soft cloth.

Replacing outer glass of oven door


This is glass because glass does not burn, does not melt at oven temperatures, and is a pretty good insulator. Also allows the cook to watch the cake rise.

I would not replace with anything but factor glass. Too dangerous, even regular glass is not properly treated to be safe in this environment.

The cash for clunkers gets extended to appliances soon, perhaps this makes a new one more affordable?

Interior Range Window cracked - How to Replace


It is simple enough not to need a manual.
1- open the door, then pull outwards. The door mounts slide right out.
2- lay flat on a towel on the floor. Remove screws on the inside of the door.
3- remove each piece and layer of the door and glass panels. Set them aside in order so you know how it goes back together
4- replace broken inner glass panel
5- put each piece back together, install screws
6- slide door (mounts) back into their homes on the front of the range

It is surprisingly simple. All you need is a #2 Phillips screwdriver and a bit of patience.

Tip: make sure to clean each glass panel while you have the door apart. Use a razor blade for those stubborn burnt on stains.

Exploding glass door


lyrica...you should call the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Second, go here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

Get your manual above and get the section on removing the door. Lay the door on a padded surface so that the outside is facing down. Then, find the appropriate screws and carefully remove them. You may want to take a few digital pictures. It should all come apart and then reassemble. Avoid touching insulation or breathing any dust from it. Caution when cleaning oven glass: use only blue cleaner and mild abrasive pads to remove burned on stuff. Never install any glass that is chipped or scratched.
