1981 GE Medallion Electric Wall Oven Repair / Tune-up


I have an older GE Medallion wall over (Model # J 53 AS-4) which needs a new light switch (door, push type) and door gasket / seal.

I have come across many switches but haven't seen any that are 1A / 4A. I imagine it is 1A @ 110V and 4A @ 220V. Anyone know where I can find a compatible switch?

I'm at a loss trying to find the door gasket. So any info on this part would be helpful as well.

Thanks

Reiley, You want to find an old GE service centre or look at the switch for supplier info. In 1981 most switches GE used were likely US or Canadian
See if you can find out if that range was mde under different lables, ie Kenmore, Viking from Eatons, etc. Was it GE Canada or US? This may help you track it down. The switch was likely not exclusive to that range.

Thanks for the replies. My subscription emails don't seem to be working so I nlost track of this thread.

It is a Canadian model. I can't get any hits on the model number online. I will check w/ my local GE service centre.

Reilly if that swicth is accessable, take a photo and list the markings, dimensions. Someone here will likely recognise it. Given the age it will likely be something common on other brands in North America. Maybe post a shot of the oven as well in case there is a similar model out there built in the US.
I.E. Kenomre in todays items, may have a model abc123 that is identical to a Frgidaire 77777 but they don't have to price match on private label.....because they can say it's not the same model so they make full markup.
