Food, grease, drips and streaks can get in between the glass panes in a variety of ways. Sometimes it drips down through vents in the top of the door. Grease from the oven can travel through steam vapors into the door where they settle leaving spots and streaks. Removing anything from in between the glass pieces will be a challenge. Here are a few methods that have been successful.

Disassembling the door:

*Disassembling the door yourself will void the warranty and may require a service technician to repair any damage or put the door back together. It is recommended that a service technician complete this for you. It is not recommended that you disassemble the door yourself.

You will need:

• Glass cleaner
• Soft cloths
• Glass stovetop cleaner

Steps to Remove the Glass:

1 Make an appointment with a service technician to remove the glass from the door. Do not hesitate to call A plus Appliances at 415 513 8624 to help you out
2 Use glass cleaner to remove as much of the debris as possible.
3 For tougher stains and food debris, use a glass stovetop cleaner to aid with removal.
4 Once the stains and debris are removed, allow the service technician to reassemble the door.Cleaning Through the Door Vents

When the glass cannot be removed or is no longer covered by the warranty, there are other, more creative, ways that can be used to clean it.

Steps to Clean Between the Glass:
1 Some ovens have small vents along the bottom or top of the door. These vents go in between the glass (and are likely part of the problem with other materials getting in there as well). By inserting a towel on a long-handled stick, you can gently clean between the glass without disassembling the door.First, find the vents on the door if you have them.
2 It may be easier to remove the door from the hinges and lay it flat on the floor. Many oven doors simply lift right off of the hinges, others will require loosening a few screws first. Replacing the door should be easy to do at the end of the cleaning and will not void the warranty.
3 Start by choosing a long-handled cleaning tool. There are a variety of options available, so be creative.
4 Secure a towel or soft cloth (long socks work well) to the handle with duct tape or other strong tape. Make sure it’s well fastened so it doesn’t come off and become stuck in the door.
5 Moisten the towel or soft cloth with the window cleaner or other cleaning product.
6 Insert the cleaning tool through the vents.
7 Move the cloth back and forth to remove the debris from between the glass.
8 Remove the cloth.
9 Repeat with a clean cloth until all of the debris is gone.
10. Replace the door on the oven and enjoy the clear, clean view.

admiral logo Admiral is an American appliance brand currently manufactured by Whirlpool Corporation. The brand is sold at The Home Depot.

Ross Siragusa founded Continental Radio and Television Corp. as a maker of consumer electronics (radios and phonographs) in Chicago during 1934. This later became Admiral Corp. Its annual sales were about $2 million. Admiral supplied the U.S. military with electronic equipment during World War II, and was one of the major television manufacturers in the early era of that medium. In 1950, for instance, Admiral was selling a line of seven TV sets, with four models having a 12.5 in (32 cm) tube size (between $179.95 and $379.95, equivalent to $1,738 to $3,863 today), a 16 in (41 cm) model at $299.95 ($2,897), and two 19 in (48 cm) models (at $495 and $695, equivalent to $4,782 and $6,714). Success in television sales enabled the company to branch out into major appliances such as refrigerators by the 1950s.

During World War II, Admiral was the weekly sponsor of the CBS Radio Network Sunday news program, World News Today, and Admiral used the promotional slogan “America’s Smart Set”. Admiral was also one of the first major advertisers on television, sponsoring Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows, Lights Out, Fulton J. Sheen’s Life Is Worth Living, Admiral Presents the Five Star Review – Welcome Aboard, and Notre Dame football games. Annual sales approached $300 million and the company employed 8,500 people by the early 1960s.

The various divisions were sold to other companies by the mid-1970s due in part to competition from imported consumer electronic goods from Japan. Rockwell International acquired the company in 1973, selling the appliance operations to Magic Chef which was sold to Maytag which was acquired by Whirlpool.

The Milwaukee Admirals hockey team derives its name from Admiral appliances. In 1971 when the team was sold by its original owner to a group of investors, one of the investors, Edwin J. Merar, owned an appliance store. The team was renamed the “Admirals” after the Admiral refrigerators sold in his store.

In 1991, Maytag contracted with Montgomery Ward & Co. for the exclusive use of the Admiral brand on its consumer electronic goods. Montgomery Ward later went bankrupt and closed all stores. After Maytag’s sale to Whirlpool, the brand became exclusive to The Home Depot. During the 1990s, the Admiral brand name was being used on Zenith products.

The Television business continues with AOC International. AOC (originally Admiral Overseas Corporation) is an international brand of LCD and HDTV display devices.
