I'm sure you've looked there, but just in case...to see our number, I have to open the door and look around the edge of the door. It was on the right-hand side on a little metal plate, on the part that is only an inch or so thick. (Sorry. Brain dead. Language fails me.)

Good luck!!!

I've had that happen to me and my mom when we were cooking. it wasn't even cold in the house, as it happened in the spring time (we had the A/C off, all windows wide open) and we took it out of the oven, and set it on the stove (which was off), and we all went to the living room (waiting for it to cool down) and we heard something that resembled those action movie scenes where something glass is blown up. it scared us! I'm glad nobody was hurt in your house though, I hope everything ends up well!

We had this happen to us too!  We had made lasagna and had taken it out to cool and it seemed not even 5 minutes later it sounded like a firecracker had gone off. Thank the gods that we weren't directly in the kitchen because one of us could have gotten seriously hurt.  It took us hours to clean and there is still sauce stains on the ceiling. I have since then gotten rid of all the glass bakeware just in case.

I sorry to hear about your oven but glad that no one was seriously hurt.

Wow! I can't believe the damage that caused! Thank goodness no one was hurt.

I think I'd cry if that happened to my oven.

No response yet. Of course, it's only 9 am, my time, on a Monday morning..... not that I'm impatient or anything!  I'd be interested to hear what other people's experiences with the company were like.

I remember my mom telling me that this can happen with different temperatures. And sudden temp changes, and the glass can loose its holding and or stability after years of use.
When I use my glass dishes I put it in a cold oven and it heats with the oven, that way I don't loose dishes.
Its terrible that happened though. Undecided

I just had a thought:  I live fairly close to a military base that has artillery going off constantly.  I wonder if the daily rattling weakened the glassware.  Honestly, the KABOOMs are bad enough to knock pictures off the walls at times-- maybe the rattling stressed the glass?  It didn't have any cracks or anything, but I wonder if it was structurally weakened....

Great news! Except for a $100 deductible, the oven is covered under our insurance. I will never, ever snicker at explosion clauses again, figuring that there is no way that anything in my house could possibly explode.

And now for a PSA: If you rent, and don't have renter's insurance.... get some.

AWESOME!!!!

Never occurred to us to get insurance to fix it. (Of course, mine was my own dang fault...) So glad yours is covered!!! Grin

OMG - that is the most extreme case of glass bakeware explosion I have seen, to have taken out even the oven door.  Thank goodness noone was hurt, especially with dogs and kids in the house!

Glad to hear that your insurance will cover replacing the damage - does that mean new stove period, or just replacing the glass?  What about replacement cookware?  I think that the newer glass bakeware is not as carefully produced, or tempered as it used to be.  But it could very well be that there was a tiny fine bubble or crack in the glass from previous use.

Completely agree with the renters insurance.  Had a coworker who had parents who forced her to get it when she moved out.  Within a couple of months of her moving out, there was a massive storm, which lifted off part of the roof of the building next to hers, and a chunk of roof crashed through her wall into her closet.  She ended up replacing her entire wardrobe, and thank goodness she was not home at the time!
