Question about Kitchen Ranges
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 have the GE JSP46W0D2WW as of July 2003 and none of these posts applied to me. I figured out how to disassemble the door and have now cleaned both the removable glass panel and the front face of the window in the oven door itself. Obviously whoever designed this range did not understand that condensate from the vents will drip onto the inner face of the front glass panel and the oven door. He also did not know that the white plastic handle and its surround cannot be cleaned. Also that these would become scorched over time in some places due to heat exhaust from the oven. I could go on...
1. Anyway, first remove the door. This is very easy and is described in your owner's manual. You simply open the door a few inches - the hinges will come to a stop point. Grasp either side of the door and pull upward evenly. The door will slide out of the hinge bracket.
2. Lay the door flat, glass side down, on a tabletop that you have protected with thick cardboard or an old rug.
3. Remove the four screws from tabs along the bottom edge of the door.l
4. On each side of the door, remove the two widely spaced screws (not the two closely spaced screws at the top of the side edge).
5. Carefully lift off the inner oven door. Don't forget to clean the outside window.
6. Now you can get at all the grunge that is otherwise inaccessible, including the awful crud along the bottom edge of the door.
I was not able to remove the glass panel from its track at the bottom edge, but if you work from one side to the other a few times with degreaser, old toothbrushes, and toothpicks, you can root out most of what has collected there.
When you put the door back together, first align the tabs along the bottom edge of the door, then loosely replace the screws. Do the same with the screws in the side edges.Tighten all screws.
Replacing the door is even easier than removing it. Make sure each hinge bracket is angled out to its natural stop point - as if you had the oven door partly open. Align the slots in the door with the hinge brackets - you may want to have a helper eyeball this. Push the door down evenly until it stops. Nothing seems to snap or spring back into place, but the door is secure. I think there is a pressure fit with the brackets.
Good luck to you!

All I know is you would need to be careful because isn't there insulation in the side of the door?

I guess we need to remove one of the two pieces of glass of the door to clean in between. But how to remove and get back in place.

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.
