My Repair & Advice
Clean the inner door with fume free oven cleaner before removal. Rinse with clean wash rag.
Remove door and set inside face down on table, with hinges hanging off table.
Remove 4 of the 8 screws (the two at each inside face corner hold the hinges on)...remove the two upper corner screws, and the two towards the center. Remove lower and side trim (note the sides install BEHIND the front glass edge.
Remove inner silver panel, noting the insulation's position around the glass frame.
Remove third glass panel.
Remove the 7 screws and clamps holding the inner glass/frame in place...set down with screws still in them so you don't flip the hold downs accidentally.
Clean all 4 pieces of glass with dish soap and hot water, as you'll be eating and breathing chemical cleaners later..
Re-assemble in reverse order. The two inner glass pieces are the same size and interchangeable.
The silver panel tucks under the bottom lip of the inner door to keep an air passage open.
Put side pieces in place with tape you can remove later (4th hands).
Replace outer glass, reinstall the bottom trim with the 4 screws, and remove tape holding the sides in place.
Install door on oven and collect your brownie points!
