The present invention relates to ranges.
An object of the present invention is to provide
a range oven with an air tight seal about the
door opening.
Another object of the present invention is to

ments is controlled by a respective manually op
erated switch 25 interposed in the electrical cir
cuit to the heating element. The switches 25
are mounted on the panel 21 of the range.
