I googled it, perfect!
Were these instructions helpful?
Replacing the oven door hinges was easy. Insert pins into the holes where the oven door meets the oven and lift off. place oven door on table with outside part facing up. unscrew the screws but keep track of which screws were used on the sides. There are 2 screws that are a different color and go on the brackets on the bottom. Lift off the face, swap out the hinges and reassemble and put the door back on. Take out the pins (they will already be on the new hinges) Done. The glass required me to flip the door over and unscrew the interior screws, I simply took off each layer and place it in the exact order to put back on, I slipped out the broken glass, and put the layers back on. secured the outside door and I was done.
The instructions from previous submissions were great (thank you for the door removal hints). Good thing I kept the door removal pins after 15 years (an allen or larger nail will do if you threw them away). Keep the door on a large flat surface with a towel under it so it doesn't scratch and keeps the work area clean. The door handle does not need to be removed and can be off the surface to keep it flat.
I did find this very helpfully video
Remove screws from top of outer door, depress clamp for the screws and slide out the outer door panel; remove each of the inner panes by removing screws from their brackets (lay aside in order); remove final inside broken pane from it's brackets. Clean and replace each pane in reverse order. There is no need to get into the hinge assembly, or completely remove the door from the oven.
There were several on line tutorials on how to remove the door, replace the glass, and reinstall the door. The steps were all relatively simple to follow and the entire process took about 20 minutes.
The repair went quite well, as I disassembled the door and laid out the parts in order to facilitate the reassembly. I cleaned all the inner glass panels before reassembly using a product called 'Bar Keepers Friend'. It cleans wonderfully and does NOT scratch the glass. I also want to thank the person I talked to at this site who really knew what I needed and got the item shipped that day. The part arrived when expected and undamaged.
After watching your video of the inner glass oven door repair, I a 55 year old woman repaired it all by myself. Taking it apart was easier than putting it back together though. Still, the repair took me less than an hour and saved me several hundred dollars had I called a repair man. Thank you.
3 days of internet searching to find that the door hinges are out of date. There is a small hole under the hinge arm. You need to place a nail into the hole on each side, close the door allowing the tension to come off the hinge. Then lift and pull the door up and away to remove. Remove the screws from the top and sides keeping the order of removal. The hard part was cleaning up the broken glass and then cleaning the remaining glass. Center the new piece of glass, replace the screws into the door in reverse order. Don't over-tighten. Place the door back onto the hinges. Lower the door, remove the nails and you are back in business. Make sure the door is seated all the way so the door closes properly.
I watched a Youtube video to see how to fix my oven. So happy to see the site had my pieces. I am NOT a handyperson but decided to try it. My son-in-law located the hinge locks and easily pulled those forward. The door lifted out quite easily. I unscrewed all the screws in the door and carefully lifted each part as it came loose. After so many years, the parts were very greasy and dirty. I lifted out the broken glass and disposed of it and, one by one, I just scrubbed all the parts clean. I carefully reassembled the pieces and replaced all the screws. The heating element was a very easy fix. I turned off the power, removed 2 screws that held it to the back wall of oven, pulled the connector wires apart carefully, disposed of old unit, connected new unit like the other one was, replaced screws and "voila!" done.
