Reply to DennisH's Post: Dear XXXXXH:
The model number of my Chambers electric oven is
SCO-273. I need a Thermostat Robertshaw BK-423-28.
This thermostat has 8 pins for connections. The present thermostat has a bad bulb. If I could get it charged that would do the job. The actual thermostat is OK it is just the bulb that has lost fluid or gas I don't know which. I shall gladly pay your fee if it leads to a replacement unit or a repair to the existing one.
Thank you

Reply to DennisH's Post: Dear Sir:
You said you had the thermostat that we need. We made the deposit and instead of telling us how to obtain the thermostat you put us off to a web site with which we have already been in contact. That site, by the way, cannot help us with this problem. We are not happy with the way you have treated us and we will be withdrawing the $13.00 deposit.

This man is such an expert that he doesn't even know we have an electric oven after telling him this several times--some expert.The company he specified has already told us they cannot help us. This was long before we contacted "Ask Question".
Expert:  DennisH replied 6 years ago.

That link was to a company that said they could rebuild the robertshaw, reguardless of gas or electric.

I now have a company that has the original Chamber's thermostat.

But what do I know
