Replacing glass in LG Range?

November 13, 2012 - 3:28pm -- pdurusau

I have been steaming bread with the cup and pan method but every time I do, I cover the door window on my LG range with a large towel. Which takes time. Which lets heat out.

I checked with LG and they don't make a replacement door with no window.

Has anyone replaced the inner glass in an LG or other gas range with metal? Thinking if I got the exact dimensions on the inner glass, I could salvage an old metal oven door and have it cut to git. Then replace the inner glass with the metal.

Source for WFO door?

May 30, 2011 - 4:52pm -- MNBäcker

Howdy, folks.

I'm looking for either ideas or a source for a 10 inch high and 24 inch wide door for my WFO that I'll be building this fall. I've seen Ovencrafters advertise one that folds down when you hit it with the peel and then rights itself up again when you take the peel out, but there are no pictures on their website. I don't want to have a three inch thick door laying in the front of my oven... Is there a way to build a door that would swing UP and ideally stays up until I bump it again with the peel?

Thanks in advance,

Oven Door

January 30, 2011 - 12:36pm -- ClimbHi

This forum has been a bit slow lately, and since I've been meaning to post this for a while now, here's something for the cause. While I was firing for this week's batch (a small batch of basic baguettes and some roasted poblano peppers this week), I took a few pics of my oven door. The question of how to make a door comes up pretty often, and this is how I solved it for my own oven.

GE/Hotpoint/others oven glass yours for the cost of shipping

June 9, 2010 - 1:59pm -- Thor Simon

I know many of us have at one point or another broken the inner glass of our oven doors with spilled or splashed water while steaming.

GE sells the inner glass for most of their ovens only as a "glass pack" with the two inner pieces held together by a stamped metal frame.  It's seldom the case that both sheets of glass break at the same time (in fact, I've never heard of the second sheet breaking at all).  The metal frame comes apart quite easily, it's just crimped together at one corner, and can clearly be reassembled a few times before it's "used up".
