That Is.....

....A JK25; it's seen in the 1972 full-line catalog available on Automatic Ephemera. Nice oven, though not the TOL. The upper oven is P*7, but not the lower one, and there is no chrome frame around the doors they way the TOL JK29 had. The JK29 also had both ovens with P*7 self-cleaning.

Nice oven!

There is what looks like a door latch above the lower oven, the same self-cleaning gasket around the door, both ovens have the same liner with the space for the mullion heater, top oven has the meat thermometer and the top oven looks like it has the little pivoting cover over the rotisserie opening, as opposed to the lower oven with the button over the opening. Poor thing looks unloved and abused.

You're right - this is a JK29, the TOL.

A pic for the Archives is below.

If this oven were White and nearby at that price, I would bring it home and squirrel it away SO fast....

we have this exact same double oven, but instead of being "avocado green" our double-ovens are "coppertone brown". but it is exactly the same!!!

This is the same exact unit we had in our last house that I am always raving about.
You know there are companies that paint appliances for a good price. They use and epoxy type of paint. I think you could get it repainted any color you want for around $100.00.

You'd think that they would have run a self cleaning cycle before they took pictures of it. The P7 cleaning cycle would make short work of all those stains!
