I have a GE JGBS17PEA4WH gas range. I need to replace the
thermostat. The thermostat is a WB20K10023 GE range / wall oven
thermostat with a 43-inch long capillary tube. I can't figure out how
to get the probe into the oven without removing all of the insulation,
something I don't want to get involved in.
Any hints out there?

Perhaps I am misinterpreting your question, but...
For years, I had a Garland commercial range in my home
kitchen. Its thermostat died at some point.
It was a similar setup to what you describe, but its long
tube simply threaded along the roof of the oven.
Are you sure that it has to be routed between the interior
and exterior walls?
Good luck with it,
thanks, I took the plunge and tried one more time to get it through
the insulation. turned out to be very simple, the probe just fits
through a slot in the oven roof and mounts to the interior back
