I understand your concerns about that oven door glass breaking. There are isolated incidents of that glass breaking but there is no common widespread problem with that oven door glass based on the information that I see. The normal cause for that glass breaking is an installation problem. Before installing the door back on the oven, make sure that the oven is properly leveled inside that cabinet. Check the door hinges for proper alignment and installation. A misalignment of the door could put stress on the glass when it is installed on the oven. I recommend that you have a service technician install the new glass and check the range to help prevent it from breaking again. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services . The second incident of the glass breaking could have been caused by stress on that glass when the door was leaning against the table. The oven door is somewhat heavy. The glass is not intended to have much force applied to the edges.

There is not a non-glass outer cover that will fit this model of oven. The above tips should help you prevent the glass from breaking again once it is installed properly.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.
