How To Clean An Oven Door In Between The Glass

How to Clean Between the Glass on your Oven Doors

Hey folks!  Today I want to share one of my most popular posts with you! A couple of years ago, I was trying to photograph my kitchen for an upcoming post, and noticed the grime in between those two glass panels on my oven door.  I did a little research and found out that it wasn’t that hard to clean after all! I hope this post will help you get yours clean too!

How To Clean An Oven Door In Between The Glass
Two weeks ago I wrote a post on How To Clean Your Ceramic Stovetop, and wow…it went crazy viral!  It is now one of my top viewed posts EVER!  I posted it on Hometalk, and somehow, the conversation veered towards getting that space in between the two glass panels on your stove door clean.  I thought, hmmm….I need to figure this out…this is a matter of great importance!  Well, it kind of is, since I have been hanging a tea towel on my stove to hide the gunk that I can’t reach in there.  So, I figured it out, and now…I am going to shame myself by showing you the hideousness that is the inside of my stove, but it will be clean by the end of this post, so you may now refer to me as Donna Reed. This is a tutorial on how to clean an oven door in between the glass.
How To Clean An Oven Door In Between The Glass
I started by opening the door to my stove…here comes the shame part.  It was just gross, like no excuses gross.  This is the part that I could reach all along, but chose not to.  I started with my normal go to…baking soda and a damp scrubbie sponge.  I scrubbed and scrubbed.

This time, baking soda alone just wasn’t going to cut it.
I decided it was time to break out my Homemade Orange Degreaser that I use for really nasty messes.  This crazy stuff will cut through anything!
So, I sprayed it down with the Orange Degreaser and gave it a little scrub, and BAM! All clean!

Now for the fun part.  This is the part when you go, “What the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks is that?”  That my friends is a torx screw.  It looks like a star, and most people do not own the tool to unscrew it.
I bought a set that looks a lot like a Swiss Army Knife for $5 at Lowe’s.  It has every size imaginable.  Now. let’s get cleaning.  Yay…fun, not really.
How To Clean An Oven Door In Between The Glass
Unscrew the two torx screws at the top of the inside of your door.  Have a chair or something handy to rest the door on…once they spring apart, the front feels kind of loose.  Now you can get to the gunk on the inside…lucky you!

Now, it’s super easy.  Take a vacuum hose and clean out the inside first.  There were lots of crumbs in mine.  Now take your favorite window cleaner ( HERE is the recipe for my Homemade Window Cleaner) and clean the glass.  You may need to use your scrubber to loosen up some of the particles, but for the most part, this stuff is not cooked on like the gunk on the inside of your oven.  If you have a real mess in there, you can always use the Orange Degreaser on the inside too.  Now, screw it back together, cause you are all finished!  Pretty easy, right?  I wish I had tried this sooner!

I took this photo with the door wide open, me standing over it so you can see how clear the rug below is.  It’s not so easy to get a shot of the oven door without tons of glare, so I thought this would work well.
So, are you ready to tackle yours?  Now I need to clean the inside…booo hooo :(

    You have answered an age old question for me. I have always wondered how to clean in between the glass in my oven. Thankyou……..kind of……because now I will have to clean my oven ! lol

  2. says

    THANK YOU!! I could not click on this post fast enough. The people we bought this house from had dogs and there is DOG HAIR in between the oven doors…gross!! I’m so doing this tomorrow. I’m so excited. Thanks!


  3. says

    Shut the front door!!!! This is something that has always bugged me and now I can fix it!!!! Pinning this so I won’t forget and so that many others can see it. Also linking to my FB page!! Can you tell I’m excited?

    I did not know it could be cleaned! Thanks for sharing.

  5. says

    So glad to know this!!! I have needed to do this forever, but was afraid I would mess up the stove. Yours still works, right? lol
    Thanks for the info!

  6. says

    This post is perfect timing. I scrubbed my glass doors with a mix of baking soda and soap forever on Sunday but they are not as clean as I’d like them to be! You answered my question as to why. I can’t wait to do this tonight. :) Megan

    I love your blog. Thanks for posting all the things you do. I thought you might like to know a trick my dad taught me years ago, for cleaning inside the oven and the door much easier.
    If you open the oven door to the first click, you can easily remove it from the face of the oven. Simply open it and grasp both sides firmly and lift. It may slightly catch, but it will slide right off the hinges and you can clean it easily and reach the inside of the oven easier as well. To replace the door simply realign the slot over the hinges and gently push down. You will feel like a genius and your back won’t hurt from straining to reach the back corner of the oven from the side of the door. I have not met an oven this does not work on, but I am sure there is one somewhere. It really is as easy as opening the door and lifting it off the hinges. It even works in my vintage trailers.

      I’m so glad you added your comment to this great post, because the oven doors do, in fact, come off. I remove mine all the time to clean them when I am cleaning my ovens. I clean them over the sink and it’s very convenient this way. Thanks for posting your comment.

    • says

      Thanks very much for this advice. I followed your instructions and just removed my door (Maytag oven.) It slid off very easily, just like you said. Now I can clean the door over the sink. While the door’s off, I’m going to reach inside the oven and wipe it down. Easier to reach, and easier on the back. Great advice!

  8. says

    I love it… Desperately need to do the inside of my door. thank you :( Now I don’t have an excuse to not do it.

  9. says

    I love it. Thank you so much! but now that means I do not have an excuse, I will need to get in there and clean! :) Catrina

    Did you post this on Hometalk? I am putting together a clipboard of fall cleaning tips and I want to include this!

    You have the best ideas!

  11. says

    Jessica…you have made my day…I have been obsessing over the over door looking so bad and thinking that how can I get that door clean from the inside…You are wonder woman!!!!….

  12. says

    You know I love to clean and I must admit cleaning that glass never crossed my mind. I can’t wait for Friday!!! Thanks sis :-)

  13. says

    Some oven doors will have to be removed before removing the inside panel. I found this out a few years ago when I took the door apart on my Kitchen Aid. It was not as easy a job as the door in our last house. It’s too bad that the vents can’t be located on the sides of these doors so that crumbs and liquids don’t get between the door panels. How much you wanna bet it was a guy who designed them? LOL

  14. says

    And you thought my Halloween House Tour was scary! This is the stuff of nightmares!

    Can I just pretend I never read that and blissfully go about my everyday life ignoring my dirty stove?

  15. says

    So glad you figured it out and shared with all of us out here in blogland. I have been needing to clean mine forever and just have never stopped to take the time to see what could be done about it. Thanks to you, I now know and so I am going to be doing this soon especially since the baking season it upon us.

  16. says

    WHOA! Never knew you could do that! HAHA — SO THAT TELLS YOU HOW BAD MY STOVE/OVEN IS! Thanks for sharing this and being so “transparent”…sorry, couldn’t resist :)

  17. says

    I will have to remember this – I went back to read how you clean your stove top. That green scrubby doesn’t scratch?? I use a razor blade to scrape up the crap and it works great – then a polish made for the top….I will have to try it your way next time

    • neasa says

      dont use razor blade……baking soda and a bit of vinegaar is less work and safer for the top of the stove

  18. says

    Nice! I had to learn this about 3 Thanksgiving’s ago, when my MIL cooked a turkey in my oven and somehow got a big giant blob of turkey fat in between the doors. By the time I figured out how to get at it, the fat had putrefied and then solidified… I almost puked trying to clean it.

    Wonderful!!!!!! I’ve hidden this problem with the tea towel for years & now I have this simple solution. Thank you so much.

    I have a mess between the glass on my Maytag stove. I read this and went to the kitchen all excited because I thought the answer to my mess was solved. Mine doesn’t have this kind of screw :( There are lots of screws around all the door. Can I take all of these out and clean between the glass?
    Thank you….

    • Susie Dougherty says

      My GE oven has 4 Phillips head screws….2 on each side. I did remove them, and the rest works just as directed. I am so grateful for this tip, as this has bothered me for years. Stupid design!!!

      FYI I have Maytag, and it has 9 phillips screws on the door. That’s good, because phillips screws are easier than the other ones. Years ago we paid a repairman to take apart the door and clean it. I watched him and it appeared simple, just like Jessica describes above. Now that I’ve read this blog, I’m going to do it myself. I just now removed the door following Jalet’s advice above. It slid off and was very easy, like she said. Now I’m removing the screws. I think it will be as simple as watching the repairman. I have to remember to keep track of where each screw goes when I’m putting the door back together. Good luck to you.

    • Norma says

      Dear Anonymous,
      I also have a Maytag oven and just happened to have removed the door to clean between the glass earlier this week. However, our ovens have several pieces of glass inside and you need to take careful note of how it comes apart. I almost didn’t get mine back together again because I thought it would be a simple fix. NOT!! I am happy to say that I finally
      did get it back together (with only one leftover screw!) and am now enjoying a sparkling clean oven door!!

    Genius ….Thank You :)

  24. says

    wow!! awesome!!! ill tell my mom about it!! mine doesnt have a window…now, got any ideas how to clean between two stationary glass doors? they re the balcony doors of my apartment unit, along with 2 sliding glass doors and a sliding screen. even the crevice wand on a vacuum hose doesn t fit between there to clean up dirt and leaves….any ideas, anyone???

  25. says

    I had no idea you could take the door apart! You are a genius! Now if you will just tell me how to get motivated to clean the whole darn thing!

  26. says

    Thank you! I’ve always wondered how to clean that area! :) Now, since I am in nesting mode big time, I will go tackle that project. But first I have to go buy that funky screw driver :)

  27. says

    Wow! Now I have no excuse! Thanks for this great tutorial. I think you may find it goes viral as well (especially since I just saw it featured on Lil Luna).

    Wow thank you so much for this great tip Jessica; as I have needed to do this for so long!

    I can’t believe I just asked my husband if he had a torx screw remover—He DID!! So here we went and took apart the two doors…and yes, by all means, Hold onto that bottom door because it will drop quick! But now I have clean oven doors inside and out and even read your blog about cleaning the ceramic top prior to reading about cleaning the door…So now my stove is spic and span top and bottom ( I cleaned the oven last week) This is def. going in my Pintrest in “Good to know” Thank you. Keep sharing

    Random Helpful tip that is considerably less toxic than using Greased Lightning for the next time you don’t have vinegar. Use Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking soda to form a goopy paste. Wipe the paste over the entire inside of your oven, everywhere that needs to be cleaned. Let it sit. it works best if you allow it to dry completely. This seems to work best if coated with a medium thickness and allowed to sit for at least a half hour. Then scrub to your little hearts content. Elbow grease and its gone. You may need a second application for the really nasty stuff. I like this solution because both ingredients are cheap, easy on your hands and don’t leave anything toxic for those of us with kids and pets. If you missed some, or didn’t wipe it all the way off, when you heat the stove it doesn’t smell horribly. Also another side note. This mix will also take the nasty off your cookie pans, and the bottoms of pots and pans. <3

    omg don’t do this if you have a Fridgidaire oven, unless you have another human being present to assist. I had to remove a buch of scews, the over door fell off, glass almost broke and the handle of the oven fell off. It’s sitting in pieces until my husband get’s home and in the mean while I’ve got to keep 2 monkey toddlers away from it…oh, and Thanksgiving is tomorrow. LOL

  34. says

    I found you on pinterest and was so excited that somebody had discovered how to clean my uncleanable oven door! It’s a bummer when you have the whole kitchen gleaming (which doesn’t happen very often) but you still have ugly drips reminding you that you still have something to clean…but can’t! LOL—THANK YOU!!

  35. says

    HOLY COW!!! So glad I saw this on your side bar! I just cleaned my stove the other day and was ticked that I couldn’t get in between the glass. The inside was all bright and shiney… The glass door looks like someone threw up in it. HA HA HA! Now I know what to do! YAY!!!!! Thanks, Jess!

  36. says

    I saw this on the sidebar too and it’s exactly what I needed! My oven door is disgusting and I’ve been wondering how to clean it. Now I just need to get motivated…

    Thanks for the tip!

    First remove the door from the range. Cleaning it as described, is likely to sping the door hinges, that is a safety hazard for gas ovens.

    This is most likely a dumb question, but here goes: What is “Greased Lightening”???

    I have did this two or three times. A plain old phillips screwdriver will also work in these screws.

  42. says

    Best advice I’ve received in years! @Jalet: I’ve already removed the door; it did slide right off. My Maytag has 9 phillips screws; I’m starting on them now. Maytag’s vents and double glass door always look dirty. Too many openings, vents, and seals in the wrong places. Steam and grease get inside but you can’t clean. The self-clean cycle works in the oven itself, but outside where everyone can see, it looks dirtier on the door, vents, and seals after self-cleaning. Definately a non-cook must’ve designed this!

The Maytag door always looks dirty. The entire unit has too many openings, vents, & seals in the wrong places. Steam, grease, & gunk get in but you can’t get in to wipe clean. Even after self-cleaning, the outside-where everyone can see-is visibly gunky dirty around the door, seals, & vents. Definately a non-cook must’ve designed it.

    This is great but one other thing – what’s “Greased Lightening” and where can you find it? Sounds like something that I would love to have on hand! Please add this to one of your posts as I am really curious. Thanks for all the great info!

    • says

      Greased Lightening is a degreasing product…they sell it at most grocery stores, and I love it. It basically breaks up hard to clean grease and makes it easy to wipe away…hope this is helpful!

  48. says

    Well, be very careful however you clean your oven door glass…my door shattered into thousands of shards right into my lap and all over me (I was sitting in the floor while cleaning the glass). Just out of the clear blue. It does not break like tempered glass pieces either. When I went to look for replacement glass (two days before Thanksgiving), I found that Maytag no longer makes black replacement glass for my model. I also found that oven glass shattering is not that rare – found several reports online. Next project: new almond glass door being changed to black with high temp spray paint and primer. Keep your fingers crossed for me (and a prayer too, please).

    Thanks for linking back to this in today’s post! I have struggled to figure out how to clean the inside of the oven door since we bought our house this summer. How does that space get so gross????

    OMG … I hate to omit it, but my stove is in desperate need of cleaning and I also never knew how to clean in between the glass. I guess I never really tried :) But, I am so glad you posted about this. I think I’ll give it a whirl this weekend!

  51. melody says

    Most ovens you can also remove to oven door from the stove this makes a world easier for cleaning your oven also. Simply open oven door and pull out.

    I always look at the oven and think I really need to find a way to clean that. Thank you so much for figuring it out :-)

    Took me an hour start to finish, but it’s done. It was easy, and I can’t believe how clean it came out. Mine actually had three panels of glass. I had to unscrew a glass panel in between the two outer panels, but the work was well worth it. It’s like brand new. You have no idea how it bothered me that I couldn’t get that clean. Thank you oh wise one!!!

  55. says

    Genius!!! I just did mine and my oven handle is attached with the screws too so it made it a little harder to put back together but It looks amazing!!!

    • Kirsten says

      I just saw this post and just did mine to. It has been bugging me for a long time, just didn’t know how to clean it. When I took my two screws out my handle fell off too, I thought I was screwed when I shut the oven door part all the way since I didn’t have a way to open it, but it was easy to open. This worked awesome will definately be using it again!!!

  56. Kathe says

    Thank you! I just finished and those annoying streaks are now gone. Hardest part was putting the door back on because of the springs on the hinges. A quick trip to YouTube and a couple of nails later and we got it back on!

  58. Cathi says

    WOW!!! who knew?!?!? Thank you so much for the tutorial… I spilled turkey drippings in between mine during my first Thanksgiving in my house (embarrassed to say 14.5 years ago!! Whoops!) …yes, you can spill stuff in between those two layers of glass if you are trying to save your too heavy turkey from falling, while trying not to burn yourself!!!! I can’t wait to try this…for years I have been saying to my husband “there has got to be a way to open that up” and he would always say “nope, they don’t even sell a tool for that”– Well guess what he is going to be doing!!?? : )

  59. Jen B says

    Do you have the ability to see into my house? Just kidding. Just cleaned my oven two days ago and noticed those spots between the glass with wondering…Saw this on Facebook. Those spots will soon be gone. Thank you!

  61. Gael says

    I suggest doing a search on Google before disassembling doors. If your oven is in warranty, this is usually covered (door disassembly). If you DIY, you void the warranty. Not all oven doors are the same, so while this one was a breeze, there are others that aren’t. You won’t know until it’s too late, though. Maybe it’d be better to do the first time via service call and watch to see if it’s something you can reasonably do. I’m not sure if I dare take ous apart or not after reading some less successful attempts folks have made.

  62. says

    I have been wondering if I could clean the inside of the oven window, thanks so much for the 411. I am doing this now.

  63. Liz says

    Very, very helpful! I recently used the baking soda method to clean my horribly dirty oven (as in, never-been-cleaned-in-ten-years dirty) and had pretty good success (letting it sit overnight) but a combination of water and baking soda seeped to the other side of the window. It looks absolutely horrible. I eyed those screws, and guessed that we probably do have the appropriate tool, but wondered if it was safe. You’ve done the research for me! I guess there is no wiring or anything else in between the two sides of the door, so now I am feeling emboldened to try it myself.

  64. RH says

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I hadn’t had my stove long before some batter dripped and fell sideways or something into the oven door BEHIND the glass. I’ve been fussin’ about it for a couple of years now!

    Thank you!! I managed to accidentally bump into the oven door when it was on with a knife that had butter on it. Yes…a small dab of butter found it’s way inside the door and I had no idea how to get it out of there!

    Was checking out Greased-Lightning on their website and it says not to use it on continuous cleaning ovens…what is the difference between a self- cleaning oven and a continuous cleaning oven….have never heard of a continuous cleaning oven….

    I had luck with washing soda, (not baking soda), it cut through my stove grease pretty quick.
    and thanks for the how to, I just may try it. If, if I don’t keep hiding it behind a towel.

  70. Sarah says

    My stove has regular Phillips screws. Yay

  71. Miley says

    Do NOT do this unless you know how your oven is put together! It is not as simple as she makes it seem. On my oven, I removed the top screws and the handle and guards all fell apart! Then the glass broke! If you are going to clean the inside glass, take the door OFF the hinges and lay it on a flat surface. You should make an edit on this post so people don’t break their oven doors!

  72. Terri says

    I have the the screwdriver already so I’m ready to clean it, never knew you could clean between the doors, very happy I can, thank you!

  73. jen says

    Well i did as you said but my oven has a extra peice of glass that I do not want to remove because its very complicated but your trick got my oven 90% clean thats Good enough for me :)

      Good call, Jen! I would be very careful if there is an extra piece! I’m glad it mostly worked for you :)

    My comments are last year I bought a new flat top range self clean .My daughter first time I cooked on it she spill t Gravy all down the front and in between the glass in tell just now I had know idea how to clean it…Silly the answer seems so simple.I never even checked for screws…On the ring in the toilet try a pumis stone it should work just fine.

    Fantastic idea! I will definitely try it this weekend.

  78. Mj says

    Thank you. Have something in between the glass. This will help. U rock. Thanks again

  79. Roxanne says

    On most of these new ovens you can take to bottom draw out and there are 3 holes it you take a bent coat hanger and ruubber band a cleaning towel around the coat hanger yu can clean the oven door and not take it apart. I clean mine regularly (oven door) and I dont’t have that build up.

  80. says

    Jessica, what a wonderful discovery. Thanks for letting all of us gals know too! I’m going to get my hubby to help me too.

    If you partially open the door & pull up it will come off. Much easier to clean & to reach inside

  88. says

    Ok! I’m headed to Home Depot to buy a torx screw! I have had enough with the dirty glass, I CAN”T TAKE IT ANYMORE! LOL! I tried someone else’s tip about sticking a hanger tied with windex wipes. That was a fruitless waste of time! So now Im onto this! Wish me luck!

  89. says

    PERFECT!!! That was a 15 minute project and I have a clean oven! The best part besides the oven glass being sparkly- all they had was this big torx screw driver set- I didn’t want anything that big so the guy sold me the big set for $3 dollars instead of $15 because I only need one! Good people in this world! Im a happy camper! Thanks!

  90. Denise says

    I am soooo excited! I just followed your instructions and finally cleaned the window of my oven. It came out so clean, it looks like a new oven. I never noticed those screws on the door before and already had that screwdriver tip in the house so I was ready to go. It looks great! Thank you so much for this tip.

  91. says

    I so need to do this. I’m sure I’ll find all sorts of gross goodies in between there. Thanks for sharing your tutorial. Pinned.

  92. tracy says

    Please BECAREFUL! Not all ovens are the same. I did this a few years ago and broke side plastic that held glass apart. And had very difficult time getting back together. Also grease lightening is dangerous. It will ruin wood I know for sure.

    Has anyone out there tried this on a GE Profile? I am kind of afraid to. Its sounds GREAT but my drop came when my oven was less then a month old we were making a turkey and it dropped on the vent in between the glass the design is so dumb that it can get right in there. I called the place where i purchased it and they said it is a bummer and they would not come out and fix it so i could clean it, they said it does not go back together well so they do not guarantee it.. so i wondered if anyone has tried it on this make?

    Continuous clean has a special coating that reacts with food every time you turn on the oven. If you have nasty spill (pie filling) it could take several days/weeks for the filling to burn off. Self cleaning ovens will take about 4 hours and the inside temperature of the oven will reach 1000* and turn everything to ash. You will have to lock the door during the cleaning process or the feature will not work. As a retired Home Ec teacher, I only buy self cleaning ovens!

    How to clean the oven door. This also works here in Cyprus although the ovens here are manufactured in Greece, not British or American made as they are in the UK. Thanks for that and it looks back to new, No more tea towels hanging on the handle. Sylvia.

    I’ve used cleaning vinegar (bought it at Ollie’s), used a steam bullet and a lint free cloth, took about half an hour but got as many sides of the double glass doors as I could reach without taking the whole thing apart. Hope this helps.

    I have a built in JennAire. UGH! I went so long with the spidery-hairy things/dust in between mine!

    The JennAire has 3 phillips screws at the top. The front will come off if you are not careful. What is just to clean one glass on some is not as simple on the JennAire. There are actually 3 pieces of glass–1 on the inside of the door, 1 on the outside and then a glass insert with the black framing around it. Mine was mostly dirty in between the inner glass and the middle. There are only 4 screws holding the brackets to the middle glass. You will need a nut driver for those. Be very careful as the brackets you are unscrewing do slide off. I would hate for someone to break their glass! I can clean both from and back of the middle glass then. It wasn’t too difficult to get everything put back together again and now I have a clean door!

    Thanks for the tips!

    I agree Sue, side vents would make so much sense – my hubby took the oven door apart for me today, so the entire stove would look clean (new kitchen cupboards are coming in another few weeks!!) Now I’m looking for hints to prevent the whole mess from happening again, surely there must be a way to prevent the grime from getting between the glass in the first place; I will keep looking, and hope someone gets the message, that the design just isn’t working the way doors are built right now!

    Greased Lighting is a DEGREASER spray cleaner. I have found it at Home Depot.

    I have taken an empty paper towel roll and attached it to the vacuum hose with a rubber band to get in tight spots. It collapses smaller than the crevice tool.

    Thanks! Also, I really need help on cleaning between my microwave door glass! Help!

      I called the repair service to come and clean mine; it was still under warranty. The repairman told me to NEVER EVER clean it myself. H said the glass was razor sharp and that it was capable of slicing a finger right off one’s hand. I hate that glass door; it should never be manufactured that way.

  105. DARCI says

    I was able to do the part that you suggested with the two torque screws but unfortunately my oven door has 3 panes of glass so there was still an “in between two” that I wasn’t able to get to. :(
