I just moved into an older mobile home here in CA and it has a double gas oven built by O'keefe & Merritt but came with no instructions on how to use can any one help me out? I was told that the lower half is for broiling and the top half for baking but it has no pre-heat light and does not seem to broil very well. Any help would be extremly wonderful, thanks
Sorry the product name is not right there was no O'keefe & Merritt but I was still hoping someone may have heard of them.
I have an O'Keefe & Merritt double oven gas stove. The model
number is 72 7242 23. The upper oven is about the size of a large
microwave and sits above the range burners. The lower (full-size)
oven is below the burner unit and includes a broiler draw below it.
So, when you say, double oven, I wonder if you are just talking about
the main oven with broiler drawer (both of which are below the burner
Mine was a builder-supplied appliance in the new house we purchased in
1986. The upper oven has never performed very well. And,
yes the upper oven can only be used for baking.
I have an instruction manual for it, but it doesn't provide that much
information. Getting parts for it is extremely difficult, since
Tappan is no longer manufacturing this brand. (I've been trying
to locate a flat oven ignitor for the upper oven and can't seem to find
a replacement that's the same 6-1/3" length.) In the 1980s Tappan
apparently purchased O'Keefe & Merritt and marketed this brand for
several years. Models originally manufactured by O'Keefe
& Merritt in the 1930s-1950s are considered collectible antique

The model number is usually located on the side of the door or on side of the oven cavity area near the door opening. Sometimes if you have a drawer or warmer the model number is located on the oven side of the drawer or warmer (sometimes not directly facing you but on the side of that area. If the oven is electronic you press a clock button or you hold one of those buttons for a couple of seconds like a start or set button. The model number though will help you find a user manual and it for sure should be clear. I hope this helps you.
\i have a stoves 900 GTF double gas oven. The clock has suddenly started to flash. It does not enable me to set the time and therefore I cannot use the main bottom oven. I am unable to overide the auto to manual. Can anyone help me with instructions or with solving this problem. I have mislaid by instruction booklet. Thanks.
That means the range is not connected properly, or the power supply to it is not correct. The range needs the neutral (along with one of the hot leads) to supply the 120 volt portion of the voltage required to operate the control. On built in ovens, the red and black are connected to the two hot supply wires, the white to neutral, and the green or bare copper wire to ground. If your supply only has three incomming wires (older homes) then the green (or bare copper wire) and white are both connected to the neutral.
I just had a model 976-4CX put in...I have no manual...I'm trying to find one. I thought I had a problem with the element, dial or thermostat. The bottom worked, but the top stopped working. There are 2 timers with dials next to the clock labeled Start and Stop, and Push for Manual. Come to find out my problem was solved by adjusting the Start and Stop dials and/or pushing in for manual!?!
If I had a manual I'd know how these timers worked.
It is definately not possible to change a gas to an electric. There are very few options for double gas ovens as electric is far superior. IF you have to go with gas , check out the local Habitat for Humanity store. You should be able to buy a used gas oven. It probably won't have the self clean feature. You would be better off trying e bay or a local scratch and dent outlet for a nice electric convection oven. It will need a seperate 220 volt circuit probably 40 amps. This isn't as expensive as you would think. Use the installer from the dealer you purchase the oven from. They are usually a lot cheaper than a union electricial worker. The 4 sizes available for built in ovens are the old standard of 24" the newer standard of 27" and the most common and useful 30" This is the current standard but you will also still be able to get 27" There is also a custom standard of 36" which would be for the very high end lines. These are all width measurements. The height will vary with the model. Most cabinets are made to accept various heights by removing one or more drawers underneath.
