  1. I’m really surprise to learn that they still manufacture gas wall ovens. When I was looking to replace my mom’s old Ward gas wall oven 10 years ago, with another gas wall oven. I was told by several dealers, that they stop making them. Are there any other manufacturers besides Blue Star who sell gas wall ovens???

  2. I did a search yesterday on-line, and found that there are still manufacturers of gas wall ovens. Only problem is they dont make a 27 inch. There’s 25′ & 30″. But the only 27′ are all electric. WHAT THE HELL??? I guess I could go with the 25″ and just build-up the cutout. But with my bad back, I dont know if Im up to that task.Anybody know of any easier options, such as a pre-manufactured trim kit, designed just for this purpose??? Thanks for your replys Advisor & Jeeves.
