    My incubator door was a 3 ply glass door, but when i got it the middle glass was shattered, dont ask me how that happened, but does any one know how to take the door apart so i can get the broken glass out, you can see it at the bottom of the door, any help would be appreciated.[​IMG]

    Can you post a bigger picture? It is hard to see on that small one. What brand is the incubator?

    Rebel, My experience with those type of glass doors is that the insulated glass is glued into the frame, usually using what appears to be silicon sealant. If you dont see any screws holding the frame together, then its probably glued. Takeing the door apart to replace one glass frame might result in the breaking of the other glass. The glass is also usually tempered,($$$$) and not just your run of the mill window glass. If the glass is indeed tempered and if you do get it apart successfully, the glass alone will probably cost you around $30 for just one pane. It has to be cut and then tempered and most glass shops dont do this inhouse. I found this out when I had to replace a glass shelf in a glass cabinet a couple of months ago. I guess the question I would ask myself would be, is the risk of breaking the other two panes of glass worth it for the little bit of extra insulation properties you would gain from replaceing the one broken pane?
