Cleaning Oven Windows

I have a gas stove with a window in the door. When I use the self-cleaning feature, it cleans the interior of the oven well but it does not clean the glass window in the door.

First of all, does this happen with your oven?

Second, if it does, how do you clean it.

Thanks,

My oven door has a double pane of glass and the door itself has these slits so over the years some stuff has spilt down the door and stained the glass. Uncleanable. I just ignore it now.

We use a cleaner called Mr Miracle for our ovens at my apt. complex(I caretake), but ours are all electric but that stuff is powerful. The longer it sits the better it cleans but be careful of overspray it will ruin finish on just about anything lol...

yeah that will work but I'd hope you clean your oven often enough where it doesn't build up that thick

The point is that oven cleaning DOESN'T clean the glass, no matter how often you clean the oven.

I think we got the point but some also thought you were asking a question.
It seems not all that uncommon for some ovens to develop staining between the two sheets of glass in the door. I resorted to taking the door apart to remove such staining with ammonia. Now we cover the glass with a sheet of aluminum foil except when baking stuff like bread or cookies.

To clarify:

The deposits are on the surface of the window facing the oven, I can feel them. I won't be taking the door apart.

I clean my oven regularly, the window doesn't clean.

I am asking how to clean the window.

I just spray oven cleaner on the glass and let it sit for an hour or so. Scrub with a nylon scrubbie. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

I use Dawn Direct Foam, let it sit and scrub clean, rinse well. Works for me!
