We are replacing a 1950's something Frigidaire Custom Imperial Flair side by side double wall oven that will leave an opening in the wall approximately 40 1/8 " wide by 27 1/4 " high. Is there such a thing as a side by side double oven that can fit this hole. This was obviously a popular model. So what do people put in its place??? Help!

Why, what's wrong with it?

** Is there such a thing as a side by side double oven that can fit this [approximately 40-1/8" wide] hole. **

I doubt you'll find anything to fit the space exactly. That is one of the main problems with replacing older built-in appliances.

The widest I've seen are ~36" models (see the following link). You'd then need to fill in the extra 2+" on each side with something (and maybe above or below).

Then what do you do for burners? The ones on this range pull out. Where did you put your burners?

I bought a 60's house with that exact model. Still works great - I absolutely love it. In fact, it's probably the first oven I've used that I didn't have to temp-check for variance. Doors swing upwards and out of the way - perfect height - 4'-5', easy carry of big loads in & out, no shin knocking doors, no bending over below the waist, space saving side-by-side, etc etc. If it works, just design around it! :)

May I ask what was the model number. I have one and cannot find it without probably having to remove from wall cabinet.... Ugh.
