I spilled a glass of orange juice and it ran between the glass oven doors on my stove. It has a few slits and I guess that's how it got in. I tried pouring soapy water in the slits and some of it came off. There are still a few drips. The stove is a month old. Help!

I can't think of a way to clean between the glass without taking the whole thing apart. And since it's pretty new and most likely under warrenty I wouldn't do that.

I would call the manufacturer to let them know of the problem and see if they have any suggestions. Since it's such a new stove they may not know of this issue and hopefully they can tell you how to clean it and prevent it from happening again.


We had a GE range and had a problem with the paint chipping on the stove top. I called and they sent a guy out to see what was going on, he used a touch up paint which lasted about a month before it chipped off again in the same spot and I had more chips in the mean time .. very frustrating with a brand new stove. GE ended up replacing the range and told me they'd be recalling my model but I haven't seen it recalled yet!

Good Luck to you!

I bought a house owned by a bachelor. All kinds of things needed cleaning including the glass between the panes on the oven door.


They do come apart. Just be careful reasembling to get the seals in the right place.

What is the brand of the oven on which you had the problem ?
I have a new Jenn-air double oven, and some grease got in between the glass door panels also - on both ovens !
Did you have to get someone to take the doors apart to clean them ? This seems like a major design flaw.

Hi, Sorry about your stove.Both ovens !! Is your stove fairly new ? Mine is only a few months old so called the store where it was purchased.They sent a man out to clean it. I think it is a flaw in the stove that stuff can get in between the doors.


Good luck with yours, Liz

The door comes apart with just a couple screws on the bottom. Fairly easy. Only takes a few minutes.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to take the door apart as this is to only way to clean inside the glass. This site explains the problem and process:

Do you know the best and quickest way to clean an oven glass door on the inside?

I have always used a brillo pad. Years ago, I was taught to used straight ammonia for the metal shelves inside. I would set them in two large garbage bags and pour an entire bottle in and let them sit in the tub overnight. The next day I would let them drain, rinse them off and if needed, use a brillo on some of the parts that were more difficult to clean. It works very well. However, you may want to try soaking a towel in annomia and placing it on there for a while. Just be careful using annomia. Make sure it's well vented.

My new oven of only 2 years is now starting to look a bit "foggy". I tried cleaning the glass in the oven door (2-ovens) and can not loosen the foggy build-up on both sides of the glass. Any ideas? I have only tried Fairy liquid to date. Thanx.

I make a brushable paste using baking soda & perioxide. Then I use a small paint sponge and cover the glass with the mixture. Wait about 20 min and then wipe it clrean with a micro towel, I have a stainless steel stove with black glass top & it works lokr a charm!

How do you clean in between the glass on the oven door?

My husband and I had to take the door apart.
Open the door and unscrew the handle, and gray piece.
Definitely a two person job.
