Customer reply replied 6 years ago

Whirlpool Gold Accubake system - The oven door is locked, and we cannot get to the model number - unless it is in another place.

It is about 10years old - we are not the first owners.

Hope that helps.

It is its own - yes, up against the wall, plug is behind in the wall. We pulled it out from the wall/counter.
