Removing Old Wall Oven


I have a 35 year old Whirlpool built in oven that has quit working. I want to replace it but am having difficulty getting it out. I know there must be some way to get to the electrical connection in the back, but so far I haven't been able to get to it. I have the oven 3/4 of the way out but it won't come any further. Any suggestions?

Model #?
No access panel in the oven?

Model RDE1300Y. I have gone to the Whirlpool website and they don't even recognize this model #. I have taken every screw out of the back of the oven (light bulb canister) and still can't find the junction. I know it has to be there but I can't find it. This is the first time I ever tried to replace a built in, so there is probably some trick to it.

Removing Old Wall Oven


Usually the wires are attached to the back of the oven---I have never seen one that had an access inside of the oven.

Does the flex cable go to a J box in the basement or an adjoining cabinet?

Is there an access panel in the next cabinet?

Thanks Oh'Mike. The junction box was in the basement. I disconnected and pulled the oven right out.
