Midland Chandlers stock pre cut glass for most popular stoves or you can just get a glazier to cut it to size. Just tell him its for a stove.

The actual replacement is fairly easy but it can depend on how long it was last changed with heat and rust doing its thing. I replace ours every year as Jeannette likes a nice clean glass! I carefully knock the old glass out to relieve the pressure on the retaining lugs. Getting the retaining screws out is the most difficult but doable. I clean the threads out with a tap and always use new screws with some copper grease on. I bed the glass on fire cement but you can also use silicone tape .

Replace the rope seal at the same time.
