My mother's old range has bit the dust and needs another the same size to fit the space in her home. This size is commonly available: 27" wide, 25 1/2" deep, 36" tall. Can you help me with a source to buy one this size, please?

** This size is commonly available: 27" wide **

A free-standing range... and in North America??

I've never seen a 27" free-standing range available in North America. Typically that type of gas and electric stove comes in 30", 24" and there are some 20" and 36"+ models.

** old range has bit the dust and needs another **

Can it not be repaired?

Thanks for your reply.

I think I was mistaken when I used the term "free standing". I believe the range I need is "built-in" as it is indeed built into the counter although it is a self-contained unit.

I used that term to try to discern what type of appliance you are trying to replace.

** I believe the range I need is "built-in" **

You're probably looking for a "wall or built-in oven" rather than a range?

You are going to have to get the exact size of the cabinet cutout it fits into in order to find a suitable replacement. Just the outer dimensions will not help you there.

Unfortunately it is very rare that you'll be able to find a current model requiring the exact same cutout that an older built-in model required. You will likely have to go to a smaller unit and do something about the extra space surrounding it or modify the cupboards to accept a current model requiring a different enclosure size.

Can the original oven not be repaired? That would eliminate most of the hassles of trying to find and install a suitable replacement.

We have found a 27" range, not just the oven. It's a GE.

The reason we can't just repair the oven is that the burners on top are all rusted out. Although they remain functional it's just not good-looking.

In the process of looking we actually did find other 27" built-in ranges called either "slide-in" or "drop-in".

Thanks for your quick posts in response to mine.

Is it an electric or gas model? Electric range surface elements, their trim rings and their drip pans are among simplest things to replace.

If it's gas, it would depend on the make and model of the stove as to whether the replacement parts were still available for purchase.

** we actually did find other 27" built-in ranges called either "slide-in" or "drop-in". **

It must be a drop-in as I've never seen other than a 30" slide-in model.

** We have found a 27" range **

Glad to hear it, thanks for the followup.
