Testimonial: "Thanks johnny rebel, it's definitely the right model number, I read it directly off the manufacturer's info plate. I believe this 24" apartment stove was manufactured in the 70's in Toronto Canada for Eatons department store by Viking, although I'm not entirely sure of that Viking connection. It is labeled, Eaton Viking."
Testimonial: "Thanks Tom, that's where I started. I had a repairman look at the stove and he checked with his local parts company and told me this thermostat was EOL and recommended I find a new stove. Not ready to give up, I thought I would search the internet for the part, either new or used."

To the owner of the Eaton Viking stove RS3028W-1, yes you CAN get replacement hinges!
I too, have this stove model (circa 1996) with exactly the same problem and I have spent the past 18 months looking for replacement oven hinges. I was very frustrated at the thought of having to throw out a stove that cooks and bakes wonderfully and has not needed any repairs till now and having to buy one of the new subpar ones that constantly need repairs. Plus you can't do canning on the new stoves and the few remaining coil models are extremely poorly made.
I have found 2 places that carry the hinges.
1. Reliable Parts, 1-800-663-6060. This company is located in Montrea (St. Leonard), Quebec.
2. Appliance Shark, 1-800-663-1176. This company is located in Barrie, Ontario.
The part number for the hinge is: 318-024-741
I hope this is helpful, and may you have many more years of happy cooking on this great stove.
This did not work for me. The alarm won't go off at all. The dial for the clock seems very loose - it stuck many times when I was turning the dial to change the time, and then it just got loose, and now the alarm won't go off. Please help!
Not familiar with the brand of course but if your model has an Eaton oven control like this one for Viking Page 23 their is an adjustment screw for calibrating the oven temps. Other controls use an adjustment inside the shaft of the oven control itself.
Go to partstown.com and look up the service manual and calibration steps for your stove.
It does not sound like the guy is trying to rip you off. Most mechanical thermostats are adjustable by a center screw in the oven control knob stem behind the knob. The problem is when an oven is off by more than 30 degrees they become almost impossible to calibrate correctly and it is better to replace it. There would not be any danger in just using the thermometers and just living with the problem. It would be a very expensive fix for a Viking and if you can live with it then you are better off. The parts alone will probably be over $300 and then there is the labor charges. The thermostat assembly also includes the tempature probes so it requires major range dis-assembly to replace it. Sometimes the oven control knob will have an adjustment screw on the knob istelf(back of knob) to adjust the position of the dial ring to match the correct oven tempature. This can allow you to change the position of the knob to match the actual tempature of the oven. They usually will only go 30 degrees one way or the other though. So my advice is that if you can live with it and are able to still cook properly then put off fixing it. If you find that over time the cooking tempatures start increasing then you might have no choice but to have the thermostat assembly replaced.
you do not need to take apart any switches, all you need - unplug it from power, open front panel (2 screw on each side) remove all knobs, there is 3 more screws behind them). unscrew thermostat 2 screws behind knob. open top part of stove, remove grates and cover. you will see wires to thermostat unplug them and plug one by one to new thermostat. remove old thermostat from inside the oven (it has bracket inside). put the new one. close everything back. appliancesrepairla.com - viking repair LA
Yes, you can use the Eaton Viking element in place of the Gibson element as long as all mountings are the same. You should use ceramic washers between the element and the casing to prevent it from grounding out...which is what probably happened to the element in the first place. Be sure to look for chapped or burnt wiring BEFORE replacing the element. Also look for burnt connectors. Hope this help you! :)
I have the same stove, and just had the same problem. I looked all over the internet to try to find an answer, and then went back to my stove to check the serial number and where the fuses are was the instructions printed on the stove itself.
SO HERE'S THE SOLUTION 1. The timer start knob (the one with little running guy picture) must NOT be pushed in. If it is, turn it slowly until it snaps out. 2. The timer stop knob (the one with the picture of the stop sign) must be completely pushed in.
