Cleaning Between the Glass on an Oven Door

 

My screws did need a special screwdriver but I did have a drillbit that fit perfectly.
So, I undid all my top screws…nothing. Wait, there are a few more screws going down the side…still nothing. It didn’t pop open like they promised.

Eventually I found that only the top screws had to be removed. There are even springs inside the door to assist you.
My door did not pop open when the screws were undone. I did manage to get the door apart with one simple little trick. If your oven door popped open with the removal of the screws great, clean away.
If your oven is like mine, you may need one more tool… a simple kitchen knife to gently pry the frame away from the door. It may seem unnatural, but the door just pops right open.
Why this is not in the owners manual, I have no idea. You may want to place a chair under the door to support your oven door while you clean. And here is the oven door, all ready to be cleaned with a degreaser.
If you need more pictures, I hope you get a chance to stop by.
Note: When I posted this I had no idea so many people had the same problem. I had read another post where someone had cleaned between their glass so I tried it. Mine worked so well (with just a little prodding) that I thought I’d share. If you have any misgivings about doing this..don’t. One person said her glass broke, I am truly sorry. Another person said I bent the frame on my oven…I didn’t. This has been my most read post ever, which I find extremely funny because I’m not the best housekeeper. I would actually prefer to be known for my wood crafting and diys.
