In need of serious help finding an oven!

Hi all,

So, smack dab in the middle of the holidays, my oven decided to die. I have a built in wall oven, and its *small* -- 24 in. width and 32ish height. It's a gas oven, to boot. I've searched and scoured the sources known to me (i.e. sears, kenmore, maytag, ge, and other major brand websites) to find an oven that will fit in the space -- turns out that although there are electric ovens of the size I need, I cannot find a gas oven in that size (I've found them in the correct width, but the height is off, as all the gas ovens I found in 24 in. width have broiler trays or storage drawers that made the height too tall). I've been told that I can't have an electric oven installed unless I have a dedicated outlet or something like that, or I'd go electric -- does this sound accurate? Are there any, maybe european brands I'm overlooking that make smaller ovens? I'd prefer to NOT have to renovate my kitchen!

Thanks for any help or suggestions you can offer! I'm really missing my oven.
