Oh. My. GOD.

A JK 29 in Brushed Chrome? You never see these! I've only ever seen one other - a 1965 or '66 model that was made before GE put windowed doors in P*7 ovens. And that was in a book, not in person.

I wish I had a place to put one of these - this is a super-rare find, and one of the most beautiful wall ovens ever. It's after 1972, maybe '74-'75 or so, as evidenced by the Ye Olde Fayke Woode Graine inserts on the door handles; earlier iterations had brushed metal inserts.

Sigh!

As Part Of....

danemodsandy's profile picture
....My continuing effort to find every surviving JK 29 a good home, here's the list of features:

- P*7 self-cleaning in both upper and lower ovens.
- Rotisserie.
- Custom-series trim, including the heavy chrome frames for the windows.
- Electric meat thermometer.

These were the TOL wall ovens of their era, the most coveted by owners of high-end houses. They are fan-freaking-tastic bakers, and excellent broilers as well. The P*7 (if still working properly) self-cleans extremely well. Anyone looking for a wall oven should consider one of these.

GE had some artistry going there; didn't know these were not often seen, around the pre-owned circles. I really like these, as well.

Other Colors....

....Were more commonly seen, when these were seen at all - White, Coppertone, Avocado and Harvest.

It's the Brushed Chrome that is so rare. This is the Maytag 906 of wall ovens.

TOL GE Double Wall Ovens

combo52's profile picture
Sandy I agree with everything you said, except these ovens are common as hell here, yes the brushed chrome was less popular than white and HG was next then Avocado and copper-tone. We literately have entire condo buildings here in DC that were built with these TOL DOs. And I would agree that you will never get a better built, better preforming oven, however I will keep my CMT-21 Thermador oven because of the built-in exhaust system that vents outside in hot weather and during self-cleaning, I also like the gasket-less doors and of coerce the micro-convection feature in the top oven.

One of these TOL GE DOs was used by Julia Child in her The Way To Cook Series that was done in the late 1980s, I think that this was one of JCs best works ever. I also loved watching her cook on the companion GE built-In coil-top Cook-Top. In the videos she was often using the RF Sensa-temp burner and she would show that you just set the control to 350 and cook away, I am sure a lot of people at home were looking at their stove tops looking for 350 on the dial, LOL.

My reference to rarity was to the Brushed Chrome version; most of us don't see as many units as you do, and I've never actually seen one in my life - just pics.

Do you by any chance have any J 757 parts around? Maybe a parts unit? I'm hurtin' here....

Nearly everyone I have known that had built-in ovens and cooktops had GE, though usually not TOL. There were a few Hotpoint, Westinghouse and Frigidaire, but GE outnumbered all those combined by at least 3.

The house across the street has a GE single oven (standard clean w/window) and cooktop in BC, but not TOL. They were installed in about '65 or '66.

I Think....

danemodsandy's profile picture
....One of the reasons GE had all that sales supremacy was the incredibly broad selection of wall ovens they offered.

It started with the Deluxe models, beginning with the JC 14, a 27" single-oven model without P*7. There was a double-oven version of this, the JC 25. Then came the JK 14, a single 27" oven with P*7, and the JK 25, a double 27" oven with an upper P*7 oven and conventional cleaning in the lower one.

After that came the Custom models, beginning with the 24" JR 19, a single P*7 oven geared toward the replacement market. Then came the JK 19, a 27" version of the same thing, then the 27" JK 29, which had two-count-'em'-two P*7 ovens. All these Custom models had the rotisserie and the electric meat thermometer.

That's seven different models, most available in five finishes - White, Coppertone, Avocado, Harvest and Brushed Chrome.

I know Sears offered more selections, but that counted gas ovens. And Sears' stuff was not the quality GE's was.

Another thing is that GE was popular in the Cincinnati area due to so many employed at the GE Aircraft Engine plant. They of course got discounts on any GE product. Knew 3 families in my area that the dads worked there, and they all had full GE kitchens - one each of White, Coppertone and Canary Yellow.

Hi everyone,

Fascinating forum.

Just moved, house circa 1965.

Great GE double oven.

Thanks!

Congratulations on your new home and thank you for writing. This was the top of the line GE built in oven for the time when your home was built and was replaced as TOL by the ovens with the self cleaning feature in just a few years.


One bit of dark news I can offer about your oven is that the controls have not been available for decades so the "Dinner Dial" assemblies are definitely living on borrowed time. The bake and broil elements are still available if you should need those.

Needless to day, you should not try to use the "Time Bake" feature if the clock is not working.

Enjoy!

GE JKP36DOG1 meat probe

Hello. Interesting site. I own a GE double oven. Model JKP36GOD1. We are completely remodeling the kitchen and keeping this oven. I am not the original owner. I have been looking quite a while for a meat probe that will work with it as intended when original. I don't know if that is possible. I even thought about replacing (if possible), the oven chamber probe receptacle so that a barrel type would allow using a common meat probe. The original meat probe was part # WB20X54. Nothing out there and nothing replaced it as far as I have learned.

If anyone has any ideas please let me know. I realize I can just buy an ordinary meat probe and run the thermocouple wires in through the seam of the door and I know there are wireless probes available as well but I was hoping to use the oven's feature.

By the way, the flip style clock hadn't been working for a long time, which then the self cleaning function won't work. There is a company in Carroll Iowa (General Time Repair) that rebuilds these flip clocks. I sent them mine (easy to unhook) and they sent me a refurbished unit for $100. That was about 5 years ago.

Thank you.

Not of help but just a comment...

I'm glad you decided to keep the oven - the flip alone is cool. I love flip-clocks and restored a couple. :-) Good luck, wish I had some help for you. Maybe someone ?

GE Range parts

I am in need of a couple parts for my model JKP36GOD1BG. The plunger on the door that you push in when the door is closed that turns on the interior light is broken and also I believe there is supposed to be a spring for the plunger. If anyone has an idea of where I can find parts or if you might have an older GE range, similar model or parts, that isn't working and you are willing to give up some parts, I would be interested in buying those parts.

Thank you.
