Default Old Caloric broiler & Hinge repair
Model Number: RSL399-N3   Brand: Caloric   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have an old 1970's Caloric L-series self cleaning gas range with ultra ray broiler. Model # RSL399-N3, Serial # 2395196. It is a high/low setup, with a smaller oven above.

Recently the broiler in the bottom oven stopped working. The standing pilots for the broiler and the oven are on. The oven works but the broiler does not. What could be wrong? Is there something I can check or do to fix this? Can I install the part myself? (Picture attached. I can provide more if needed.)

Also the hinges have not been working properly for awhile. I think the springs need to be replaced. One of the hinges broke when the door fell down one time, this could be welded probably. How do I go about taking out the hinges to examine them? (Picture attached) It looks like two screws hold a small plate which sits over a larger plate held by two more screws. Do I remove all four or just the two on the smaller plate? Is there a part number for the springs? I think the hinges are obsolete.

Thanks

Default Caloric Broiler - Gas Oven Safety

I had my Caloric (Model # RSL399-N3) broiler checked out by my utility company and they told me the problem was the "gas oven safety" for the broiler. They did not stock these parts.

Can anyone tell me if that part is still available and if so a part # or place to purchase one. Is this part something that could be repaired if it is not available? How would I go about removing it?

Thanks for your help.

Default Caloric Broiler - gas safety valve

I think I found the correct part to replace my gas oven safety valve.

Now I'm trying to figure out where it goes. The broiler pilot light in my bottom oven is at the top. Is the valve underneath the cooktop panel?

Is anyone familiar with these older stoves?
