Default Old electric wall oven needed to buy!

Does anyone know where I can find an older ELECTRIC wall oven that works to replace the one I mistakenly removed? I am going to sell my home but need to find an oven that will fit into my kitchen cabinet. The dimensions are: 22" width; 24" height; 24.5" depth.

I checked out the used appliance stores on E. Santa Clara St. and one on the eastside of San Jose but had no luck. This wall oven probably was installed in the late 1970's but the new ovens are too big for what I need. If I cannot find an older oven, I will have to get a cabinet person to make alterations and then have to buy a new oven. Sure would hate to do that and deal with the expenses.

I hope someone can help me and if you want to call or e-mail me, then please send me a Direct Message and then I will forward that info to you.

Thanks for any help as I am DESPERATE to find the right oven so I can sell my home.

my grandparents had to replace their's a couple of years ago they bought their house new in 1963 and it was the original oven. Lasted almost 50 years..they don't make um like they use to. The only problem they had was the closes match they could find was about 5 inches too deep but their kitchen backed up the the garage and so we just punched the wall and it sticks into the garage about an inch.

Default Thanks for the reply

Thanks for getting back to me on this as this is stressing me out since I cannot put my home on the market until I get a wall oven installed. I will forever REGRET getting rid of the old one since it still worked other than the clock. And getting one to fit will be the BIG challenge! Dishwashers have stayed overall the same size but NOT ovens like you also found out with your grandparents' oven.

I will let you know what happens and thanks again for replying!

Default Old GE oven available

I have a working antique GE wall oven in my storage if interested, I believe it's 24x24x24.5". I will be willing to sell it for $300 plus shipping, if you are interested.

Default Thanks for the reply

Thanks for offering to help with your oven but I have ordered a NEW oven that should fit without any cabinet work but it is NOT cheap! I will have it professionally installed and hopefully, this added expense will pay off when I sell my home since it is new and stainless steel. This cabinet oven is more expensive since fewer are sold because of this odd size.

I did have second thoughts in getting a used oven since not sure how long it would work and I would still have to pay for shipping and installation charges. Also, I decided that it would be best to have a new oven to give the kitchen an updated look!

Again, many thanks for offering to help!

Thanks also for offering to help but see the other letter I wrote to the other person.

The other appliance places at the website you mentioned unfortunately were not in San Jose but far away.

Again, many thanks for offering to help as I really appreciate it!
