The following Dacor Oven needed the oven glass replaced on the inside of the oven door. Well talk a little bit about how we repaired it and how an oven door’s glass can break in the first place.
First we’ll start by removing the oven door from the oven itself. Next, we lay down a protective blanket on a nearby countertop and proceed to disassemble the oven door.
Once the oven door is disassembled and we have access to the glass, we can remove the glass and replace it with a brand new piece of oven door glass.
Oven Glass Repair and Thermal Shock
Oven door glass is usually made out of a Heat Barrier Glass, Ceramic Glass, or Pyroceram Glass. The oven door glass has to be able to withstand the very high temperatures inside of an oven without breaking. Oven temperatures can sometimes reach 900°F during an oven’s self-cleaning mode.
The most common way that oven glass breaks is by spilling cold water on it. If the oven is being used and the inside glass is very hot, spilling sometimes even just a single drop of cold water on it can cause the inside oven door glass to break. Glass really doesn’t like very extreme and very fast temperature changes. This effect is called Thermal Shock.
Thermal shock occurs when a thermal gradient causes different parts of an object to expand by different amounts. (Source: Wikipedia)
You may still be able to run your oven with broken oven door glass, but we strongly advise against it. You will run the risk of breaking the outer oven door glass also from thermal shock. This time not from spilled water, but from the temperature difference between the inside of the oven and the temperature in your kitchen.
