Old GE wal mounted oven Model J55BE-1

We purchased a home that comes with this type of wall oven . The control knobs are a little too confusing to ubderstand. Instead of description like "bake", "broil", or "warm" etc., ir comes with little illustrations. The temp. knob is ok, except for the setting knob. Is there any way website that I can go to for explanations on these illustrations? I rhink athe oven is wellover 15 yrs. old. Thanks so much!

Temp control knob loose on old Frigidaire oven

my best guess its A Frigidaire wall oven, circa 1966-1970,

unsafe to use at any time if the temp controller trips the circuit breaker

could be the oven thermostat causing the trip as well

if Frigidaire are still in business

You will need to ask an electrician to fit a /tested used controller or new superseded part temp controller and knob

How to self clean a 1989 model self clean GE oven How do I set?

I found that you cannot turn the CLEAN knobs both off before you release the latch on the door. You cannot unlatch the door
if the Oven Set knob is turned from Clean to must still be on Clean to unlatch....simple, huh? Well, it was confusing
at the time!

JTP15 GE Oven - vibration noise

We have a double ge wall oven. The vent fans had become really loud. I checked the price for new fans...$275 each! Plus service of $200. If your oven is not too old, go to GE service purchase a 1 year service contract for $93.00. Wait one one month till it takes effect. Call them and request service and the entire replacement is free.
