How to clean between glass panels on oven door

Kenmore electric double oven model 790.4812. On the bottom oven door, liquid has spilled into the vents on the top edge of the door and dripped between the glass panels of the door face. Can I remove the inside panel which holds one pane of glass by unscrewing from the front panel of the door in order to clean the glass?

Spills and grease will find their way between the oven door glass. The expert will review this model to provide step by step instructions. I did locate two similar questions that may help. If you wish to check, I attached to the links below.

To clean the inner door glass, you will need to remove the door from the oven as shown in the image below. Place the door on a padded surface. NOTE: That oven door is heavy. Two people may be needed to safely lift that door off of the oven.

Once you remove the door, you can refer to the parts diagram for the oven to determine how to access the inner door glass. The doors on the ovens that begin with model 790.4812 . . . will vary. Here is a link for the Sears website that has oven parts diagrams:

. You will normally need to remove screws from the top trim and or handle. Screws will also have to be removed from the bottom and sides to separate the door components. That first link for a previous answer posted in the above response has a video that shows the basic procedure on one type of oven door. That video may help you with this repair. If you need more help with that process, reply with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore oven.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician clean that inner door glass, you can schedule service through this link:
