I assume that you mean the entire fireplace glass doors-and-screen assembly.
Those usually have four bolts inside the fireplace (both sides, top and bottom) that tighten against the brick sides of the fireplace.
Good Luck!

Glass Door on Fireplace

PLEASE READ ALL BEFORE YOU START! OK, Open your doors and look at the top behind the door, you should see a metal bar across the top under the brick that supports the brick(lentil bar), should be two brackets at the top (each side), they are either screwed into the metal bar OR there is a squeeze type bracket and BEHIND the metal bar there are screws you just loosen up and the top will be free, the bottom may have nothing or it may be screwed to the floor or the wall OR it may just be pressure screws pushing against the brick, NOTE, some of the real old doors have a bar attached to the top of the door frame that is like a shower curtain and all you have to do is grab the bar and turn it usually counter clock wise and it will loosen. TAKE THE GLASS DOORS OUT FIRST!!! This makes the frame much easier to work with. Fold them open to a slight V and feel at the top where the hinge pin appears to be, there should be a peice of small spring steal and you will need to push it up and pull the door toward the center(top only), once the top is free lay it over and remove it. Now go back to the top of this message and take the frame out, the screen is attached to the door frame. it is kind of difficult not seeing or being able to talk to hear what you see BUT this might get the old one out. The new one should go back in just like the old one came out UNLESS it is a CUSTOM MADE DOOR (Custom Doors usually are the same install)
