Can anyone help me figure out what year this General Electric Wall oven is from? I looked for days online and can not find it. Only similar ones, but not this exact one. I have included a picture of the oven and serial/model # tag. Also, can anyone tell me what it is worth? I am selling it as it came with a house I bought and I am upgrading all the appliances.

Wall ovens are usually hard to sell. It takes a certain buyer, with the right kitchen setup, to buy them. It's probably in the $50-$75.00 range.

This model is included in the 1965 and the 1966 catalog.  However, since the color is avocado, this could be no older than 1966 as that is when the color was introduced.  I do not have a 1967 catalog and the JD14 is not included in the 1968 catalog.

The control panel is just like the one on my neighbors oven, which is Brushed Chrome and was installed in '66.

It looks like the oven cook-top and kitchen cabinets are all the same age.


I have to chuckle at your comment that you are upgrading your kitchen however as you will never get an oven today that is more reliable, bakes any better or even uses less power than what you have now, if its the avocado color you don't like get the outer door painted black or white. You can even get it painted silver so it looks like SS.

By selling it, you mean giving it away to someone willing to haul it off for you, right?

Your appliance retailer is going to charge you to remove that unit and carry it out of the house.

Giving it away will put you money ahead if you have them disconnect it for you.

relatively bottom-of-the-line,

no P-7 self-cleaning, single oven, minimal features, but, as John says, an excellent oven nonetheless!
Probably a freebie or minimal value at the current time. Too many folks think everything "vintage" - a very abused term - is valuable!

Good only when NEW, versus Like New/Brand New!

It IS No Frills, but at this level, as easy to clean, even manually as it is to use--and probably tons more reliable than its self-cleaning (and much more than NEWER) counterparts!


Have the cabinet space & installation skills & it will make a great second oven to your free-standing (or a third if you own a double oven) range, or will go with just about any cook top...


I guess it's easy to imagine how much grief the new oven that former owner is willing to put himself through, just because he probably dis-likes the color and just wants a thing like self-cleaning--especially powered by that unable to withstand the rigors of that single microprocessor unit w/ an incompatible touch-pad system, that when merely depicted on The Jetsons could never make it through even ten- of the forty-to-fifty-years-ago, that at least that simple GE could give & may there be much more ahead...

Very little value, but thanks for trying to save it.  Many would just toss it into a dumpster and be done with it.  I would post it and anything else you have on Craigslist.  You might find someone that has another or is doing a vintage kitchen.

About 15 years ago I picked up a stainless front P*7 single wall oven for free off Craigslist. As usual, someone was remodeling a kitchen and just wanted to give it away. It was a lower level than the P*7 in my kitchen, but I swapped out the stainless door on the freebie for the Harvest door on the one that came with the house (I don't like Harvest!). Then I put the Harvest door on the freebie and put it back on Craisgslist for free. Within a week someone whose P*7 oven quit working came and got the freebie.

The stainless door coordinates better with the stainless fridge, black glass cooktop, and black Bosch dishwasher in the kitchen. I just have to get around to repainting the harvest gold exhaust hood over the cooktop on the peninsula. The main problem will be figuring how to detach it from the ceiling without having it drop suddenly on everything below, LOL.
