May I have the model number of the oven, please?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I can't find a model number . It is a 1955 built in ; I expect they only had one model
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

Unfortunately, there are many, many models from that era. It is not likely to be available anymore if it is that old. So, we can look at replacement thermostats.

  1. Is the oven electric?
  2. Does the thermostat have a broil setting on it?

I signed up for A $5.00 free trial ; already its showing a $ 32.00 cost . That bothers me .
The stove is electric and it has a broiler setting .
If this is going to increase the bill beyond the $ 5.00 free trial stop .
I am disappointed . It says 100 % sastifaction .

You did not understand the charges, no worries. The charges are thoroughly explained as you go through the posting process. You must have clicked off one of the explanation windows without reading it. It can be confusing if you miss one of the steps. Take care.
