thanks for the info.. the link is unfortunatley for high end wood doors.. sorry to not give enough info.. i had the home built in 1992 while inthe midst of my 20 years at payless cashway's. The windows were from crestline/sne and the doors from castlegate like the stock we carried and the 5/0x6/8 entry doors in a few different styles of etching on the oval glass in the door as well as the replication of the pattern on the flanking 1/0 sidelights... the plastic oval mould is warping away and breaking the studs on 1side of the mould so you cannot just screw it back the trim also supports the insulated glass panel.. now i need to replace the plastic oval trim.. castlegate entry systems(in pittsburg,kc) has not answered any calls .. anyone know of any other moulding try that make oval trim/mould for then oval lites? thank you!

Sounds like we have the same door! The frame with glass fell out. Amazingly the glass didn't break, but the plastic frame is splintered. I too need to replace the window...wondering if possible to just have a frame built.

I just learned that Castlegate went out of business many years ago, before 1997. Masonite bought them out. I contacted them at (620) 231-8200 and they're going to have a local salesperson contact me to see if there's anything they can do to help me get a frame to put the window in and have it reinstalled. Hopefully they can also help you! Good luck!
