Hello, I am sorry nobody has gotten back to you yet. Are you still needing help with this?

The dimensions of the oven itself are not accurate to look for a replacement. The accurate way to shop will be to pull the oven out a few inches to be able to measure the actual opening because the cut out size is always different than the actual oven dimensions.
