    Lightbulb Footwork needed

    It looks like none of the options are available.
    Not through the usual channels no. They are discontinued. You might be able to find someone with old stock locally?

    Is there any chance of using a substitute and making it work?
    Sure... But it will have to be you that finds something that might work.

    If there was already a direct replacement, the manufacturer would substitute the part number to it, not discontinue it. Maybe something off a different model or brand could be modified to be used but finding out which might be useful for your case will be difficult.

    If you get a section of the gasket off the oven, you can try taking it to a local appliance parts supplier or used appliance dealer to see if they have or recognize anything similar that is available r ca still be ordered.

    Be aware though, try not to destroy the original in the process. It might have to be used in the end.

One guy said he drilled holes in his vintage oven wall that line up with the gasket pins on a gasket he bought, and that worked. Unless I can find an official replacement gasket, for now at least, i'll just leave the one in there alone.

    Lightbulb Removeable/moveable clips?

    the odds of a gasket for a different oven having metal pins that line up with the holes on my oven, aren't good.
    The parts list for your oven model showed the gasket retaining clips as separate parts so they must be removable. The newer seals that are held in place with clips (not all are) often come with clips already attached however I do not know if they are removable as well. I think there's a good chance the mounting clip might be removable in which case maybe the original gasket retainer clips can be reused on the new seal or the clips on the replacement seal just relocated.

    A start will be finding gasket material of a similar thickness and length and then seeing if it can be adapted to work on your model.

    Here are some newer oven gaskets which might be a possibility.

    The part supplier linked above has a very lenient return policy. Anything purchased from them that is unused can be returned for a full refund (less shipping).

    That is a possibility as well. It'll be up to you how you proceed.
