Clean Oven Door Glass

How does one access the oven door to clean the glass. There are 4-5 screws in the door but I am not sure if that provides access to the glass. My daughter has a Maytag range in the home they just moved into and the oven glass looks terrible (inside the glass) from cooked on greese, etc. I cannot see that there are screws on inside of oven door to access glass in order to remove it and clean it.

    While cleaning my daughters spectra oven, soft scrub got between the glass in the oven door. Can anyone tell me how are even if the door can be taken apart to clean between the glass. Thanks

    I have the same problem with our 4 month old Maytag oven glass door. The oven is clean as a whistle but has one drip in between the glass panels.
    What is the sense of a glass door to view baking if you can't keep it clean in between. Inside and outside no problem.
    My model is MER5552BAS.
    Hope there are some answers out there.

Using a long stick/tool, attach a cloth to the end. Remove the drawer and look up at the oven door. There are 2- 3 openings that are big enough for you to reach the mess. Make sure that whatever you are using to clean the glass will not stay stuck inside, so make sure its attached securely. I used the end of back scratcher with a thin cloth attached to it. After a few attempts, I was able to completely remove the stain that was caught between the two panels. AND... I didn't need to remove any screws or dismantle the door. This could void your warranty.

It is much more complicated than that. There are usually more screws once you take out the first 5. There are a total of 3 panes of glass inside the door. If you are very careful to note how the door comes apart once you've removed the screws, then you will be able to do this yourself. Just be aware that this is going to be more complicated than it looks. Lay the door on your counter or floor with the outside of the door up. Take out all the screws around the outer egde of the door. Lift by the handle and turn the top half of the door over so the handle side is on your counter. You will see 2 panes of glass held by the same bracket on each side. You only need to take one of the brackets off and remove both pieces of glass. Now you can clean the inner most piece of glass. Then clean the 2 you removed and put them back. Now reasssemble the door in the reverse steps. Make sure that all insulation and seals are back in place.

    HI, solution is quite easy. Must have two people available for the job. First, remove pan drawer from the bottom of the stove. Secondly, remove the three white screws from the top of the door. Third, have your partner hold the front glass while you lay on your back and remove the five screws from the bottom pair brackets that support the door glass. The glass door will now slide down allowing you easy access to clean the inside of that pane and the other inside piece of glass. To finish simply reverse the procedure.

    I put off cleaning the inside glass because I thought it would be a major job. But with some hints from the solutions on this page and set out to clean the glass and found the task to be quite easy.

    First remove door from hinges by opening slightly and pulling up. Place door on countertop with oven side down and handle on top. Remove the 5 screws from the bottom of the door. Then remove the one screw on the right side of the door and remove the metal brace. Slide the top glass from underneath the handle. This will exposure the glass beneath. There are two panes of glass that can be removed. Unscrew the brace on one side and slide the glass out and clean. Remove the 3 screws holding the second pane of glass and slide that glass out and clean. You will exposure the inside of the oven glass for cleaning. After all glass is cleaned, reassemble. It only took me 15 minutes and my oven looks new. I wish I would have known how easy this was and did is sooner.

    This was really not too complicated. See jsalamorics comments. I did have to remove both side brackets before sliding out the top glass. I have a genie double oven and the top door had an extra step to remove the middle glass. I am so pleased I can finally see clearly through both doors!
    I will also be able to clean the door in my rental unit which has two obvious streaks down the inside. Thanks!

Cleaning glass in oven door double glass


You would have to take the door apart. Two screws at the handle and 3 screws on the bottom. BE sure to take the door off the oven first and lay everything on a soft sheet. Do not put uneven pressure on the door glass, wear safety glasses and do not over tighten any screws.

Kenmore Elite Gas Range C970-441833 - how to clean between glass on the oven


You have to take out the handle screws, all of the srews on both sides of the door. And if you look at the bottom of the door, you should see about 3 or 4 screws as well. When you take out the screws, the inner door should lift right off. PAY ATTENTION TO THE FRAMEWORK AROUND BOTH OF THE GLASS PIECES. IF YOU DO NOT REASSEMBLE CORRECTLY, NOT ONLY IS THERE A CHANCE OF HEAT ESCAPE, BUT YOU ALSO STAND A RISK OF SHATTERING THE GLASS

Maytag Gemini oven glass door panels impossible to clean


We had an ugly spill of hot grease/water from a roast, and lots of it ran right into the vent holes on our oven door, covering various layers of glass and other parts inside the door. Yuck. Thankfully we found this site!

"fixetheoven" was certainly on the right track, but missed a key step that makes this job much, much easier. (Maybe they had a few too many sips of wine during the process?! :-)

Anyway, the key to make the job easy, and do-able by one person, is to pull the door off the hinges before starting to remove any screws! Here's how we did it:

1. Open the door about four inches or so, it will stay in place. Hold the door at the sides and lift it up, sliding it right off of the hinges! Now lay it carefully face up on a table so you have easy access to the screws, and no danger of the glass dropping out of the bottom of the door (as apparently happened to "fixedtheoven".)
2. Remove the two screws that hold the panel on one side of the door. (One screw is halfway up the side panel, the other is on the bottom edge of the door.)
3. Slide the panel off, paying close attention to how it fits into place so you can return it to its original position later!
4. Remove the two screws that hold the panel on the other side of the door, and slide that panel out as well.
5. Remove the three screws that hold the panel across the bottom edge of the door, and remove that panel.
6. Now you can slide the front glass out from under the top edge of the door.
7. Clean the front glass, the side panels, and the bottom panel, as needed.
8. There will be another layer of glass inside the door. If it needs cleaning on the underside, remove the screws from one of the metal brackets that hold the glass in place. You can then slide this piece of glass out from the metal bracket at the other side.
9. After cleaning everything, reassemble the door by reversing the above steps.
10. Lift the door by the sides and carefully slide it back into place on the hinges. Be sure it is properly in place and being held there before you let go!!
11. Now go pour that glass of wine and sip to your heart's content, while admiring how clean your oven door is!

Cleaning Oven Door Glass inside face


First take the two inside screws out, (found at the top of the door) they will pop out when you have both sides off so make sure to take them all the way out so you dont lose a washer or one of the screws. The handle is actually secured by these 2 screws and will come off of the door when you remove them.. your metal door can bend slightly in this process, so be careful. as soon as the handle and screws are off you can clean inside of the 2 pieces of glass, also a good time to clean off the opposite side of the door behind the handle. only take the 2 screws off no need to remove the full door. I used a magic eraser to remove the grease and then I cleaned the glass with glass cleaner. I used a small vice to secure the door when putting the handle back on, but you could have someone to hold the piece togeather for you too. (I have a frigidaire stainless steel model)

Clean Oven Door Glass


To remove oven door:
1. The oven door is held to the oven door hinges by two
screws. (One in each hinge.)
2. To remove the oven door remove the two screws.
Two screws
3. Close the door to the broil stop position and lift up.
then remove the door handle and take out all the screws around the edges of the door and pull the out side cover from the inner but a word of caution there are about three or 4 pieces of glass they are tempered and about 100 bucks a piece and most times they wont get real clean and will get messy again

We cleaned the inside of our glass door today, it was easy but unfortunately we had a problem. Hopefully this will help you avoid the problem we had which shattered the outside glass on the door.
1) Open the door all the way, but put some support under the door to prevent it from dropping. It helps if you have someone else support the 2 halves of the door.
2) There are 2 screws on the top inside of the door. Carefully loosen both screws. This will detach the front of the door from the back and allow you to clean it. BUT, this is important: Do not allow the inside of the door the swing back toward the closed position as this will cause the glass to shatter.
3) Open the 2 halves of the door only enough to get your hand in and clean the glass. Avoid moving the doors while cleaning and avoid excessive pressure on the clean when cleaning.
4) Once you finished the cleaning carefully place the doors back together and tighten the screws.

I'm not familiar with this unit exactly but I'll give you some guidelines. You have a double layer or more of glass and the glass inside the unit is your problem. Generally, cleaning glass on ovens is no problem if you use cleaners that leave no residues, don't stress the glass and don't scratch it. Prepare a flat surface covered with newspaper to clean your glass. You may use a blue glass cleaner, a scrubby or VERY fine steel wool. Never use any cleaner which leaves residue. Use lots of liquid and very little pressure. Finish with a soft cloth. Clean the inside of the door and any of the gasket you can get to. Use only a sponge and detergent unless the area is really a mess.

First, be aware that the door is spring loaded and as you remove items, it will tend to snap closed. Note that there are probably screws that are near the base of the door, probably accessed from below. Remove these first. Then, remove side screws and carefully remove the panel holding the glass. This probably comes out into the room. There is a danger that the glass is not secured inside the panel so have the door fully open when 'dropping' the outside panel. Note the positions of all clips. You may even want to take a digital picture or two. When reassembling, never overtighten anything! All parts should lay flat and insert easily. Get assistance with reassembly...you'll need another pair of hands.
