Naa, replace it. It has done its duty.
ROTFLMAO!!!!! First, I haven't the foggiest idea how to recalibrate the heat control. Second, I have no idea if it can be done. Third, you're right 46 years of service is long enough. It has earned its retirement.

I'm going with the gas stove & turning the hole where the wall oven is into a criss-cross wine rack... or take the doors from the cabinet I remove for the stove & turn the hole into another cabinet.

GE Wall Oven issue


Reckless, yeah it's an exciting time with our sports teams.....on your kitchen remodel; if you guys cook and have the room--buy a Ge double wall oven 30" electric WITH convection. nice oven. go with 36" gas cooktop, no special brand, just buy features[make sure has good grates and buy one that has the highest btu hi-speed burner[otherwise you'll wait forever to boil water for pasta]

Thanks for the tips Jacques. As for "you guys," I live alone. I'll probably have to sell the house as soon as the market comes back since I haven't worked in nearly 3 years. Economy here SUCKS!!! So, all I'm doing is the minimum that I'd want if I stay while improving my chances for a sale if I should have to sell.

The 24" oven is there because that's all there's room for without redoing all the cabinets. As is, I'll have to remove a cabinet for a free standing gas stove. But I think it will be cheaper (and I'm all about cheap all things considered) to pull the cabinet, run a gas line & install a free standing stove than it will be to replace the wall oven & the cooktop. Anyhow, that's the only way I'll get a larger oven without tearing out everything. Thanks again.

Philip

The issue is that everything I baked gets burned black on the bottom before the top is near done. It doesn't matter which rack level I use. I'm assuming that the temperature sensor isn't working properly so the element isn't cycling to maintain a set temperature. Any suggestions on how to fix? Are parts still available? Thanks in advance for any help
I know this is an old thread, but found it when I was doing a search on the model # of the oven in a home we recently bought which is the same exact model as the one mentioned.

Service dept ordered a replacement sensor package - wish they would just replace the darn thing! Hoping it doesn't work out

My question was more for wondering what you finally did with your kitchen cabinets, countertops and what you may have finally chosen for your oven. I have the original cabinets as well and they are solid and sound. Hate to get rid of them if I can find a way to utilize them and make them look good and be happy with the outcome. Wondering if you installed a DW, we there isn't one here,

Hoping you'll see this, and if so, possibly any pictures?

I decided to not spend the money on repair of such an old oven. I removed it & was going to replace with a new wall oven, but not a single new one would fit the cut-out, nor was there room to heighten it enough.

I removed the electric cook-top, cut the counter-top & removed the 36" cabinet below it, ran a gas line in (furnace, hot water & clothes dryer were already gas) & installed a free standing gas stove. The cabinet opening where the wall oven was I converted to a microwave cubby with a shelf above for a wine rack & cook books.

The photos don't show the wall oven or cook-top or 36" cabinet in place, only after removal. 1st photo is old oven & cook-top, 2nd is with all removed & 3rd is with stove & exhaust hood installed (was a microwave above cook-top). I hadn't yet installed the shelf above the microwave either. But that's in now.

The next step is to tile above the stove & install a granite counter-top.

I did install a dishwasher last spring, but there was already a place for it so no cabinet removal was necessary.
