Vintage Hotpoint Customline wall oven needs thermostat, timer

I need to find information and sources for repair parts for this vintage oven. It heats, but the clock and timer do not work, the probe is missing, and the thermostat seems to be off as it appears to get too hot. The rubbery gasket is also missing except for a strip across the top of the opening on the oven side, not on the door. If there was one on the door, there is no sign of it now.

I can read a serial number of 1278447, but the Cat No. is hard to read. My best guess is 102366601 with the first 3 and last one digit the hardest to be sure of.

There is also a push-button switch in the bottom center of the control panel that I am unsure of. The button directly above it turns on the oven light.

Based on the age of an extensive remodel on this house, I am guessing it is from the late 60's to early 70's in age. It is in otherwise excellent condition.

SOURCE: Oven digital lighted display is dim

I replaced the C3 capacitor on the circuit board and works fine. This was mentioned in a prior post and took 5 minutes and was under $5.00 for the part.

SOURCE: My clock and temperature display is dim

Hi, this will happen over a period of time and its just heat related. the control panel isn't insulated properly and , there has been a larger than normal transfer of heat to the inside of the control panel where the circuits are housed.

If this is a problem, i recommend replacing the control board. it will fix the dim issue.

    The top oven is over-heating with no change in temp display. A red-hot heating element on the left side of the oven (facing it) shows through the floor of the oven.

    Good Morning Eileen, thank you for your inquiry!
    I understand that your Electrolux double wall oven is having over heating issues. It is possible that this could be a faulty thermostat, control panel, or element. Since it could be anyone of these underlying having a technician out would help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. If you need help locating a technician you can visit your manufacturer's website for additional assistance with locating a technician. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

    Trying to find a bake element for the small side oven on an older westinghouse model #KF745MXW1 or KF745MYW1...serial number KNC21616

    I have found the part # for it it's 5300207851 however searching all my parts supply houses that i normally use they say it's no longer available. Perhaps it may take some searching on your part but having the part number will possibly help you find it. Their is some places that restore vintage appliance and info on them could be found by a google search for vintage appliances and perhaps they may have one they need to knock a ton of dust off of and ship to you.

    Good luck,

    278.4088891 Kenmore wall oven. The display goes black


    Sounds like the "display" part of the timer is faulty or has a bad connection. As the cooker still heats up then the "relay" is working ok.

    A replacement timer will be roughly £70 - £80

    Hope this helps

    I have a F0 on the display of my double oven JTP45 model

    Giggles01: I wish I had an answer other than calling GE. We are about to install a used oven of the same model/same vintage. I've been unable to locate a manual and need some information from it. Would you be willing to tell me the cut-out size the manual calls for regarding the installation of the oven? Most 30" ovens require a 28.5" cut-out, and I need to confirm that for the JTP45. Thank you!
