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

Akz161-03-IX Can you please advise if other people have reported exploding glass doors on this oven


I have experienced 'exploding' doors on all types of ovens. The most common reason is that the glass door has, at some time in its life, had a 'knock or bang'. The glass door could be fine for an indeterminable length of time.

My oven inside glass door exploded tonight while


Very rare, in 35 years I replace maybe 2 to 5 a year out of 1500 to 2000 repairs a year on all major appliances. Make sure you replace it with the exact glass from the manufacturer, usuing your model number. Do not replace with glass from a glass shop.

How do I clean the inside glass on the door - GE Profile JVM1870


I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
Model 665.61639100
Anyway, good luck with this. Hope someone has an answer for you (and me).
Mine has a open slot on the top front of the door. Kinda like a double plate window execpt for the opening in front. Why is this there? I don't know. Weird design. But it leaves for the possibilty of liquid to splash in there leaving it hard to clean (like impossible).

I'm thinking I have to completely remove and disect the door.

Whirlpool glass door exploded in my face! A serious defect!


I would go to a Lawyer unless you have a serious voltage problem. Whirlpool makes pretty good appliances. To have probems with all of them is very unusual. Look for a comon problem. You have not stated your outher problems. I have heard about oven glass breaking with no reason.

Cleaning between double glass oven door


Without disassembling the door, you can't. the glass is sandwiched between two rather rugged metalized gaskets to create an air pocket (or vent space) to keep the outside glass cooler than the inside.

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.
