My inner door burst into pieces when I was taking food out of the oven and a drip from the food hit the door. Now trying to replace this but is this a problem with this door? When it is made for high heat and moisture why would it have burst the way it did?
The thermal temperature difference between the glass and the food is what would cause the door glass to break. Even though the glass is designed for higher temps, a temperature of something boiling hitting something that has cooled a little will cause this issue.

Any instructions appreciated.
Answer Hello Ray. To change the glass in an oven door, you will need to determine how to remove the door on the model number you are working on. If you open the door to the first stopping point, some oven doors will lift off the unit in this position. On other models, you will see clips on the back of the hinge toward the opening where the hinge enters the range. If yours is like this, you will open the door all the way open, then pull the clips down until they stop and lock in place. Then close the door to the stopping point and lift the door off the range. If you door does not lift off, and it does not have the clips, then you will open the door all the way open. You will see a hole in the hinge at the bottom of the door. You will insert a pin or nail into that hole and close the door to the stopping point. Then you can lift the door off the unit. Once the door is removed, you will lay it on a soft surface and disassemble the door. Pay attention and make notes if needed for reassembly of the oven door. Once you have replaced the door glass, you will reinstall the oven door back onto the range in reverse order of the way you removed it.
