    Sorry, the link I provided earlier was too long and didn't show up completely.

    If you have your owner's manual, there are step-by-step instructions on removing the door. If you don't have it, you can probably find it online on the Whirlpool site.

    I think JJJ probably heard a pop because the spring-loaded hinges weren't locked prior to removing the door.

    I removed the door, cleaned it, and replaced it in about an hour. It wasn't an easy task, but it can be done.

    Here are the instructions:

    To Remove the Door:
    NOTE: If the door removal pins included in the
    Anti-Tip Bracket Package are not available, nails
    or screws may be used. Be careful that the length
    of the nail or screw does not damage the oven by
    chipping or scratching the porcelain surface.
    To remove:
    1. Open the door about halfway. Insert door
    removal pins into both hinge hangers. Do not
    remove them while the door is removed from
    the range.
    2. Close the door as far as the door removal pins
    will let you.
    3. Rotate the door toward the range. Lift up the
    door until it stops. Do not use the door handle to
    lift the door. Rotate the door toward the floor and
    pull it toward you.

    To Replace The Door:
    NOTE: The door removal pins you inserted must still
    be in both sides of the door.
    1. Grasp the door on the sides with your fingers on
    the front of the door and your thumbs on the
    inside surface.
    2. Rest the hinge hanger so that it is flat (at the
    bottom of the hinge hanger on the bottom of the
    front frame slot).
    3. Position the door with the hinge hanger slots
    almost parallel to the front frame.
    4. Push up and in until the hinge hanger slots
    become fastened to the range. Lower the door
    and rotate it slightly from the front to the back
    until the slots are fully fastened. The hinge
    hanger will be close to the bottom of the front
    frame slot.
    5. Pull door open about halfway and remove the
    door removal pins. Save door removal pins for
    future use.
    6. Close the door.

Why are there brown/white streaks inside oven door glass after using self cleaner 1 time?

Thank you for your post, friend!

From my understanding after you used the self-clean feature on your Frigidaire range you now have brown and white streaks on the indoor glass. Typically streaks can be removed by cleaning the interior glass. Normally it is recommended to have a professional clean the inside glass but a consumer can do it as well. Use caution when following the steps some pieces can have sharp edges. You will need to have a Phillips head screwdriver or small quad bit driver.

A. Refer to owners guide for instructions on how to remove oven door.

B. With door in broil stop position lift door assembly off hinges.

C. Lay door on table, position so that handle hangs freely over edge of table

D. Remove 2 screws and washers that secure handle to lining assembly.

E. Remove 8 screws that attach textured steel door wrapper trim to lining assembly 3 at top, 3 at bottom, 1 on each side

F. Lift door lining up and out of wrapper trim assembly.

G. Lay lining assembly on table with wool shield/inner part of lining facing up.

H. Remove 2 glass clamps via 2 screws per clamp. These clamps attach innermost clear glass to wool shield.

I. Lift out center clear glass from wool shield, this glass just lays onto the wool shield and is held in place by the glass/ clamps in item H.

J. Clean each glass with appropriate cleaner.

K. One glass that remains in door lining assembly can at this time be cleaned without further disassembly the lining assembly.

L. Reassemble in reverse order.

Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

How to clean between glass oven doors on whirlpool oven?

You need to remove the inner door panel, Usually a few screws holding it on. On some models the handle screws also need to be removed. Do it slowly and carefully as the door may want to swing up quickly, once the weight on it is removed. Pay close attention to each step so all screws etc go back in the same place. Make a diagram as you take them out to be sure.

I self cleaned the oven for 4 hours and it worked great. I decided to take the front glass off to clean inside it. it was quite dirty inside and the self clean did not effect it. Once I put everything...

The procedure to Disassembling the door is as follows:-- 1. Set the oven door wide open. 2. Lift the hinge jumpers with your thumb and index fingers, then turn them fully outwards to the end of stroke. 3. Turn the door towards the closure position and lay it on the jumpers: in this way the hinge's spring is blocked. By fully closing the door the hinges are unhooked from the connection slits which are integral with the oven muffle. 4) Re-assemble the door by carrying-out the aforesaid operations in the opposite order. Disassembling of the door glasses:-- for your safety, before removing the glasses you should remove the oven door. To facilitate the cleaning, after having removed the door from the oven, you can proceed with the disassembly of the glass. Release the two upper blocks so that the glass can be removed. After the cleaning you should reassemble the glass, replace the blocks and lock into position. Check that all components have been assembled correctly and than you can re-assemble the door onto the oven. check fig:-- For more help click this link directly. The model and brand is different in the picture but the procedure to assemble the door is similar to your model Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Cleaning glass in oven door

Extend your door hinges and remove entirely over to a table or other flat surface where you can do a step-by-step dis-assembly. Begin by removing the bolts at the bottom of the door, then the main panel and side flanges can be removed. The glass slides out from the tabs and you can give it a good cleaning at this point. Reverse your order to re-assemble, and put your door back on the oven. It's not as bad an exercise as it would appear. Just take your time and watch what you're doing. I used the hinges as a shim, and had it laid out on a pool table for easy, elevated examination.

Frigidaire Self Cleaning Electric Oven - Inner glass shattered, need part and instructions for door

It isn't that tough to change the glass assembly. Most of the Frigidaire have 4 screws that hold the front of the door to the inner part- sandwiching the glass in between. It is only sold as a unit- 2 glass pieces, assembled with an aluminum frame. Call All brands Appliance parts at 508-587-7100 and they'll get the part out to you. (Tell them Greasy Wheels sent ya, they'll take good care of you.) The most common reason the glass breaks, is a scratch in the glass. Sometimes it's just a dragged pan, other times it's from cleaning it with a sharp instrument. Don't do that....

Spills in between glasses of the oven door.

The door must be taken apart at least most of the way to clean glass. Just so you know, this is a problem with a LOT of the newer makes and models. If there are 2 screws behind the handle, take them out and some of them come apart enough to get your hand a paper towel in to clean. Otherwise, the door must be removed and completly diss-assembled.

Whirlpool RF367LXS Ceramic Glass Range not working

Almost every time I run the SELF CLEAN cycle on my Whirlpool Self Cleaning range, it fails to function after completing the self clean cycle, even though it completes the cycle of cleaning and unlocks the door. What I do to solve the problem, I power off the BREAKER for the range at the main electrical panel in the house and wait 30 seconds, then power on....and the whole system works just fine until the next time I clean it. This has been a problem from the beginning. My theory is that the electronics get heated up and, like a computer, the system stalls out and needs a complete hard reboot. Good luck!
