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.

I HAVE A AMANA SINGLE WALL OVEN THE ELEMENT SPARKED AT THE BACK OF THE WALL. I PURCHASED A NEWW ELEMENT AND WHENITOOK THE OLD ONE OUT THERE WAS NO WIRE TERMINALS AT THE ENDS OF THE PLUG IN END OF THE...

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

Hi We need to replace wall oven model 755T what size wound it be so we can buy new one Thanks Tracy

The best way to determine the size wall oven that will fit is to partially pull out the existing one and measure the cut out of the cabinet it will fit into

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.

Do i need to ventilate my wall oven

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.

I just had a Frigidaire electric Single Wall Oven (FGEW2745) installed under a Bosch gas cooktop. The cabinet maker didn't allow enough room for the oven so my contractor had to lower it. However, as...

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.

Hope that helps.

Whirlpool built-in double oven model# RBD305PDB12

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.

Replacement for built in oven/microwave

Hello tippett_631

Welcome to fixya,

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 greatly appreciated.

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!
