Maytag Gemini oven glass door panels impossible to clean

My Maytag Gemini electric range has drips and streaks between the glass door panels which I can't clean. It looks terrible. What can I do to clean them? The top oven looks worse than the bottom oven, but the bottom has streaks, too. Also, how do I remove black marks from the ceramic cook top?

    I knocked a utensil holder off the countertop and it bounced back and hit the bottom glass panel. The glass pane shattered into several hundred pieces. I have been trying to find a replacement glass for this bottom door panel but have not been able to find one anywhere. I have even tried EBay and have not had any luck. The black panel number is 74006663. This is a Maytag Gemini Range Model Number MER6770AAB. Any thoughts as to where to get a replacement glass? Thanks!!

We had an ugly spill of hot grease/water from a roast, and lots of it ran right into the vent holes on our oven door, covering various layers of glass and other parts inside the door. Yuck. Thankfully we found this site!

"fixetheoven" was certainly on the right track, but missed a key step that makes this job much, much easier. (Maybe they had a few too many sips of wine during the process?! :-)

Anyway, the key to make the job easy, and do-able by one person, is to pull the door off the hinges before starting to remove any screws! Here's how we did it:

1. Open the door about four inches or so, it will stay in place. Hold the door at the sides and lift it up, sliding it right off of the hinges! Now lay it carefully face up on a table so you have easy access to the screws, and no danger of the glass dropping out of the bottom of the door (as apparently happened to "fixedtheoven".)
2. Remove the two screws that hold the panel on one side of the door. (One screw is halfway up the side panel, the other is on the bottom edge of the door.)
3. Slide the panel off, paying close attention to how it fits into place so you can return it to its original position later!
4. Remove the two screws that hold the panel on the other side of the door, and slide that panel out as well.
5. Remove the three screws that hold the panel across the bottom edge of the door, and remove that panel.
6. Now you can slide the front glass out from under the top edge of the door.
7. Clean the front glass, the side panels, and the bottom panel, as needed.
8. There will be another layer of glass inside the door. If it needs cleaning on the underside, remove the screws from one of the metal brackets that hold the glass in place. You can then slide this piece of glass out from the metal bracket at the other side.
9. After cleaning everything, reassemble the door by reversing the above steps.
10. Lift the door by the sides and carefully slide it back into place on the hinges. Be sure it is properly in place and being held there before you let go!!
11. Now go pour that glass of wine and sip to your heart's content, while admiring how clean your oven door is!

My wife and I figured it out today. Once you know what to do, it's easy, and only involves removing 7 screws. (20/20 hindsight) You'll need to have an extra pair of hands holding the door together when the last screw comes out. Otherwise, the bottom edge piece can drop out of the door and the outer glass cover along with it. Just be aware. If you don't have an extra pair of hands to help, follow the progression below to make sure you can control gravity during the dismantling process. Not a big deal, just want you to avoid the same surprise we had. Tools needed: Phillips Head Screwdriver and a glass of your favorite wine.
Open the lower oven door so you can get access to the upper door screws located on the bottom edge of the door. Take a quick sip of wine. Put a folded blanket over the bottom door while it's open to protect the glass from anything that might accidentally fall. Take a quick sip of wine. Using a Phillips head screwdriver, remove the one side screw on each side of the upper door. Then, while holding the side panel piece with one hand, remove the screw underneath with the other hand. That screw is located on the bottom edge that is directly below the screw you just took out. Do this for each side. The side panels should come off once the bottom edge screw is removed for each side. Take a quick sip of wine.
Now remove the next two of five screws from the bottom edge of the door that are located on either side of the middle screw. Take a quick sip of wine. Before removing the middle screw, make sure you have a firm grasp of the bottom edge, holding it up upward against the door handle frame. Otherwise, it will drop out on you when you remove the middle screw. Remove the middle screw. Let the bottom edge piece and the glass cover drop free from the door handle frame. Take a longer sip of wine. Clean, reassemble and enjoy the Maytag Gemini that you thought was engineered. My wife loves hers, except for this little design flaw. A simple re-engineering of the door would preclude removing 7 screws.....a hint for the engineer designing the next generation oven.

    Correction: Last sentence reads "thought was engineered" and should have read "thought was perfectly engineered"..........sorry for leaving the important word out. We love our Maytag !!!

    that's what happens when you take too many sips of wine! Thanks for the advice!

    I had a somewhat similar problem with my glass doors in Tacoma, WA. Fortunately I was able to get it cleaned and the person who cleaned it use the same method as stated by Dtamburo. It works, it really does!

There are stains between the glass of the upper oven door


Sadly the only solution is to strip down the door and clean the glass. It's a lot of effort for little return and you should re gasket the door afterwards to re seal it, but there is no guarantee it won't happen again. Contact Maytag to complain here:

The front top inside glass on the door ofre my Gemini has some drip streaks. How do I clean it?


you have to take the door off
I DO NOT RECOMMEND CLEANING IT
there are 3- 4 layers of glass you have to take apart
so there is a big risk of breaking something
but if you dare
open the door
look at your hinges
you will see a tab
pull them down
open door
and lift upwards the door will come out of the socket
remove all the screws and you will be able to access the glass
good luck

Used self cleaning feature of my electric Maytag Gemini stove. Lower oven glass window in door basiciall cracked into thousnads of small pieces. What did I do wrong and how do I get the stove fixed?


You didn't necessarily do anything wrong. The glass may have been banged at some point and weakened it. The only thing you can do is call an appliance parts store with your model and serial numbers and get them to look up the price and availabilty of the lower oven, inner glass. If you can get the door off the range, and it should come off, it may be more reasonable for you to take the door into the shop where you ordered the glass and get them to put it in for you.

Maytag Gemini Stove Code F1-4 (bottom door won't open)


F-1 error is a Temperature Runaway. It Maytag's way of letting you know that oven overheated. Nothing you have done but it may have shorted out the oven sensor or the keypad. Check the sensor and see if it's closed. If it's okay, replace the keypad.

Oven windows


I have the same problem. Two years ago the service representative came to my house to replace the door seal in my upper oven. He had to take the door apart to remove and replace the part. I used that opportunity to clean the interior glass partitions. I watch how he took it apart and put it back together again. I would not recommend trying it yourself. Also, local service reps. would clean it for you for a nominal fee. The problem is taking the bigger heavier door in which I have to do with mine.
