1951 Caloric Ultramatic Broiler Unit Won't Come Out

I have a built-in 1951/52 Ultramatic wall unit which is in pristine condition except for the broiler unit. Apparently, it was rarely used by the previous home owner and when I try to open the drawer to try to use it, the drawer is frozen-up. They even left the original manual for the stove and oven! These instructions state that I should remove the outer broiler door (which I can do with no problem) and to ''release trigger'' and slide unit out. I see no ''trigger'' which they refer to. The picture looks similar to the ''handle'' that one pulls up to release and remove the oven floor, but the only thing in the broiler is a slot-shaped hole. I would like to remove the unit so I can lubricate the runners and actually use the broiler. And it would sure help with lighting the pilot light since the ''button'' is located between the broiler drawer and the oven/broiler wall. What a PAIN! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Frigidaire oven won't heat past 355


Contact a professional to have the unit diagnosed for repairs. Sounds like the heating elements are either faulty or the main control board won't allow the unit to heat up correctly.

Have a Frigidare custom imperial double oven, built in, 60-70's. Bottom oven unit went out sometime ago. now my top broiler unit went out. do they still make those units???


I doubt if they still make that model, but the repair parts should be able to be found and ordered. If you can find the equipment id tag on the unit and write down the model number from it, then you can search for the parts.

Most likely you have either switch problems or the heating element and now the broiler element problems.

Broiler doesn't turn on completely


The top element should come on when Broiler is selected. If both ovens have a broiler mode, then look for something failed in the circuit for the broiler heating elements (it's unlikely both broiler elements would fail together.). If there is only 1 oven with a broiler, look for a failed broiler element.

first turn the gas off at the meter/ a oven this old may not have a shut off in the back. then you can remove the oven safely/ the line in back will hook to 1/2in or 3/4 pipe stub. . if you have a shut off in the back turn it off and reconnect new range to it . and if not make shure you put one in .. mm
