Take a profile of the glass shape (cut out the shape from cardboard) and go to a glass supply shop ( glass windows , doors , shower screens etc)
they should be able to cut and then temper the glass to make it heat proof for the door
if they cannot temper it they should be able to tell you where you can get it done

    ring around to other places
    glass is glass and to make it different it is placed in a furnace and heat treated treated
    there are places that sell glass and have the equipment to do it
    It may take a search on google if there is no one local

My inner door on my new world cooker exploded could it be i put it the wrong way round


Hi, it sounds like you put the door on yourself? The inner glass of my oven door (less than 1 year old) shattered when I put it in cleaning mode. We had to call a serviceman which fortunately was a part of the warranty we purchased and he said it could have been a microscopic fault in the glass, but he replaced it and it's been good to go. I've never heard of installing the door yourself for an oven, but even so, I just thought I would share our experience. It's a dangerous situation since it could shatter outwardly and hurt you or someone else so you might want to ask for a service person to come and look at it. Hope this helps!

The main oven inner glass door panel has shattered


Unfortunatey, it happens quite frequently, there is no one reason for it to do so.
The only solution is to replace it.
Over a number of years use, the glass looses it's properties, and this is what can happen.

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....

TKC 8522/2 top oven outer door shattering


It is not a fault with the door, and this sort of event occurs quite often, so is not uncommon.
All sorts of things can cause this, sudden change in temp, getting the glass wet whilst it is still hot, a knock or bang form an earlier time could have weakened the glass.
The list is quite long..
Depending on your household insurance, some policys cover for breakage of glass fittings, would be worth checking.
Plz rate my solution
.Thanks.

Just the glass piece. Look up parts on any parts site or let the supply house do it for you. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks
