Major Appliances/Followup


Hello Ann/Eric,
This is a followup to our previous messages (listed below).

I really want to give the business (sale of an oven element) to your company, but I need to move soon. I have renters starting Aug. 1 and need to get this resolved.

Could you PLEASE let me know if you can help us find the element we discussed previously? I can re-send the pictures if needed.

Sry to be a pain, but I'm up against the calendar.

If you can't help, just tell me so I can try to find another source.

Thanks so much
Joe Treese

Subject:   Oven door removal
Question:   QUESTION: Hello, we have a 1960-vintage Westinghouse oven, model OL-24-8. We need to remove the door to clean it. There are 2 screws (one near each hinge) on the door's inside. I removed both and attempted to slide the metal tab underneath, as the door has a channel that looks like the tabs should slide. I wasn't able to get the door off.

Also, what would be a suitable bake element for this oven?

Thank you!
Joe Treese

ANSWER: most times no screws needed, they go into the tilt position like for broiling and then lift up...can you take a picture of the element and get me measurements we have most of the ones needed for the OL but we have found over the years, the lookup can be wrong... thank you, Ann
If the door does not lift off, I will go to the micro fiche to get you further assistance

QUESTION: Thanks, I assume the images I attach below will reach you?

I will take picture of the element and also of the measurements.

The element plug-in sockets (in the oven) shows 240 volts AC on multimeter. the element varies between 7.5 - 12.5 on resistance test.

Here goes....

QUESTION: hello,

thanks so much for your help so far
