It can be fixed by removing the door. Open the door and try to lift upwards. When the door has come out, dismantle it by removing the screws and when you can reach the glass frame, measure the size of the glass reqd. The glass can be bought from any glass dealer by giving the correct size. Make sure if the glass has to be tapered at the corners. When it is received, you can reassemble it yourself

The double-glass is held down by the inner framework, which secures with fairly hefty Philips screws.
These screws and frame can become baked on over years of fat / oil being dried and hardened into a shellac-type 'superglue'.
Lay door horizontal, or as open as it will go, pour olive oil over screws and brush edges of window and frame.
Leave to soak (unheated), at least overnight.
The interior of the door has glass wool heat insulation.
Apply rubber gloves and long sleeves if the spiky glass wool fibers irritate your skin (like mine!!).
Unscrew frame, lift glass out.
Electrical stockists which sell stove parts (may) possibly have a match, otherwise search the web, manufacturer, etc.
If you are trying to clean between the inner (heat shield) glass and the outer glass (safety glass for looks), you may not have to remove the whole door. On most models, the outer glass is either integral to the handle and frame or at least is trapped by the handle and frame. Open the door and look inside. There should be either two or four screws right at the top that hold the handle and frame assembly in place. You may find that when you take these off, the handle slides off, and the glass can either slide up or the whole frame will rock outward. Be VERY careful, this is safety glass and shatters into 2mmx4mm pieces easily if you bump it.
If the whole door has to come off, most new models don't even need screws taken out... you just pry up the two metal tabs next to the hinges, and it unlocks and you slide the door up off the hinges. See the link for instructions if you need to remove the door and take it apart. This covers most oven doors. Cleaning between the glass of an oven door Frigidaire Jim Carson
Most of the time that GE attaches any type glass to hot metal these days they use silicone seal. It is uses to attach glass cooktops into the metal frame of the cooktop. Get a tube of GE clear silicone seal and glue the glass around the complete edge getting a good seal and contact at the glass edge and metal panel. Let it dry 24 hrs before reassemble. The silicone seal turns to rubber when dry and is quite heat resistant. It won't stand up to direct flame but should hold your glass well.
open the door, loosen the two large screws (t20x or large flat head) near the top of the inner door, this will loosen the main outer door and you can slide it up and off. Look to the hinges and you will see retaining brackets held with two t20x screws, remove these and you then slide the rest of the door off enabling you to work on it on a flat surface. Lie it down with the broken glass as the lowest part. Remove two t20x screws from the two plastic holders near the top of middle frame, slide them out and remove the middle angled frame. Pay attention to which groove in the bottom of the door they are positioned for reassembly. You are now faced with a frame with absolutely mountains of t20x screws which will all have to be removed. when this is done, lift off the frame and you are left with the inner frame, broken glass and mesh panel. carefully take off the mesh screen and discard the broken glass ensuring that you do not inadvertently throw away the black thin seal (looks like a large rubber band). Use a toothbrush to ensure all glass is removed from the inner frame and that the inner edge of the frame is free from food debris etc (This is probably what caused the glass to shatter as the microwaves are attracted to food debris and would have cooked the glass causing a hotspot, this is usually evident if you look at the starting point of where the glass broke). Give the seal a clean also and reposition in the groove around the inner edge of the first frame. position the new glass panel, position the mesh screen and the middle frame. When putting all the screws back in, alternate them. left right top bottom until they are all back in (do not over tighten). Then reassembled the rest of the door by reversing the dismantling info. Let me know how you get on, please leave some feedback.
Normally sometimes the gum whichhold the glass tends to dry off and results in the glass coming off the frame. So if you can get a good quality GLASS bonding adhesive which can withstand heat it will be useful to glue it back to the frame. Clean the surfaces and allow time to keep it under pressure for best bonding.
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
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.
that is your heat safety glass if the outer pane is still there,you will need to dismantle the oven door and reseat it in its frame in the oven door,the screws are on top of door and on inside when door is down,im sure you'll find it..and dont run self clean w/o safety glass in place,outer glass wont take the extreme heat of self clean feature
