Re: Wall Oven does not fit flush into built in cabinet
I HAVE SEEN SOME CABINET MAKERS BUILD A TRIM PIECE THAT GOES ALL THE WAY AROUND THE EXISTING HOLE THAT HAS AN OUTSIDE DIMENSION LARGER THAN THE CABINET HOLE AND AN INSIDE DIMENSION TO FIT THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE OVEN. IT ATTACHES TO THE FACE OF THE CABINET AND STAINED TO MATCH THE CABINET FINISH.

when it burnt off it fell somewhere between the oven chamber and the back panel.once finding it,its just a matter of splicing a new wire terminal end and attaching it to the element. The problem lies in thats its a built in wall oven and may be needed to be removed from the cabinet to find and repair this wire. Depending how tight it fits into the cabinet it may not come out easily and even break the wood around the cabinet. which of course you could face in pulling it out to replace it with a new oven. ONe thing to keep in mind is that all wall ovens are slightly different in size and the replacement oven needs to be pretty close to the size of existing one or the cabinet will need to cut or filled in so their wont be a gap left when new one is smaller leaving a gap in cabinet up to 2 inches on either top or side walls
It has nothing to do with the tight fit. It has everything to do with self-cleaning on ovens. The thermal fuse blows due to extreme temperatures. Replace the fuse to use the oven. Use an oven cleaner to clean the oven OR replace more fuses in the future.
No, all wall ovens have a built in cavity extractor fan. When the oven is turned on this fan operates and blows air from the oven cavity through a vent at the front of the oven, normally just above the door. This keeps the outer oven and cabinet cooled sufficiently.
Any handle you replace on the oven will certainly void its warranty, especially if you have to drill the door to fit it. Generally the oven handle is designed for the oven, and as such most manufacturers dont make different door handles for them. Most likely you will need to get a different oven altogether, or void your warranty and find a suitable handle and attach it to the oven door yourself by some means.
the humming sound is coming from the "squirrel cage" fan in the back of the unit, there may be some resonance vibration from the fan this issue should be addressed by a qualified service tech, the whole wall oven needs to be pulled out, i would have him check the fan.
You said, , 22 years ago you built the house you are currently living in.
The above oven/microwave oven was built in. You are interested in
replacing this unit with a new unit but it must be the same size. ? by the way i You would be happy with a double oven versus the
microwave/oven duo. You have measured across the front of the unit and
it only measures 26" across. Any assistance you could give us would be
I can help you! The front is 26 inches. And how high is it from the top to bottom? Also when I sell a wall oven I always send out the installer to check the hole or cutout size. Most of the time no wall oven fits with out at least one cut! Do you have any room to cut a little on all sides? What is your model number now. And what color do you want now?? I will send you some GE wall oven models and sizes so you can check your self if it will fit. usually they have to cut at least one side to fit it in the old hole!
