Default Is it worth it (tech advice needed)?
Model Number: RBE-G94   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: More than 10 years

I really don't have a lot of information on my oven. It is a wall oven. A Frigidaire by GE, single unit, very basic from what I can tell. Our house was built in 1951, but the cabinets look like they were redone around 1970, so my guess is the oven is from somewhere between 51 and 70. The model number only pulls back two parts on the various parts sites I have looked into. That is all the background I have to give.

The question I have is... Would it be worthwhile to call a repair tech over to take a look at it? I personally can't find anything wrong with it as the heating elements work, the internal temperature is fairly accurate (about 25 or so degrees), only the clock is out. The "problem" is that it can be fairly inconsistent in how it cooks. It is more or less with baking where the problem lies. Cakes will be well done on the outside, but mush on the inside. Brownies will be too gooey, yet done on the outside. Muffins come out ok though. Baked potatoes are a no go, yet broiled potatoes seem to do fine.

Anyway, we don't use it a ton, but it seems that when we do want to use it for something, everyone gets a bit too nervous that it isn't going to work correctly. I personally feel that it is a matter of using it a lot to learn its strong and week points, but my mother in law believes a "repairman" can come out and make it work perfect and my wife doesn't want to use it until it "works better". So, neither will really get a chance to learn on it unless it "works"... So again, really apologize for rambling, but I hate to call someone out to "fix" something that might already be working just fine.

Due to the age and probablity of no parts to be found you have 2 options.
option 1 - replace the whole unit (best option)
option 2 - buy a oven thermometer and use it religiously and check it frequently while oven is in operation.

Probably not what you want to hear, but I wouldn't want you to burn the house down!!
