Thanks for the numbers.
The 628 in the model# tells us it was built by Frigidaire. The date code in the serial number is less clear because it is a different code than their current serial number designations that have been in use since the mid '80's. The style of the stove makes me think late '70's, I would guess '77 or '78 from the first 3 digits of the serial number.
The thermostat should be easy to check. If the broil function in the large oven works, the thermostat should be ok. It is a simple switch that should read closed across the contacts when you turn it to any temp setting when the oven is cool.
The power for the oven will also go through the selector switch which routes the power to different components depending on the setting.
The power also goes through switches in the clock that allow the timed bake and self clean functions to work.
If there is no wiring diagram in the stove, you will probably need one to diagnose the problem if the thermostat checks ok. I would suggest getting one while it is still available in case you need it in the future.
Once you have found out exactly which part you need, you should be able to use the Frigidaire part number from the parts list on the Sears site to track down a replacement part through a local appliance parts dealer. You may have to take the part to them to try to visually match up a replacement. Thermostats and selector switches are usually pretty generic in their operation between manufacturers, the problem lies in finding one that will mount to your control panel properly and that your knob will fit so that you can keep the same uniform look along your control panel.
Please post back with what you find out or if you have any questions.

Hello! I have this stove in black where something went bad inside last week (made like a crunching sound). It still runs but seems to only be getting 110 electricity. Clock and lights work and the large oven stays warm. Everything was working fine until this happened. Could be an inexpensive fix- I willing to sell it for repair or parts if you are interested. The griddle alone sells for $170.00 through Sears. Cynthia
