      How to























      ANTIQUE Stove Restoration 'DO-IT-YOURSELF'


      Restore Your Own Antique Stove ...

      It's Worth the Effort ! 


      In 1997 I bought an old home, circa 1906, in Denver, Colorado. Not much had been done to improve the house over the years, and in the kitchen was a wonderful gas range from the 1940s. It seemed in good shape, but over time the oven temperature began to decrease until finally I was unable to cook anything in it. The burners worked fine, but the knobs became increasingly difficult to turn. I procrastinated for a year or two meanwhile shopping around for a new stove. Most of my friends advised me to pitch the old stove and buy a new oneyou know, one of those marvelous self-cleaning jobs with all the bells and whistles.


      Well, I just couldnt see condemning the old Roper to the landfill and thought it would be wonderful to restore it and keep it going. After all, it was already older than I and seemed to be built like a tank! I cruised the internet and found The Old Appliance Club web site TOAC Shop online.


      Jack Santoro, founder of TOAC, was a jewel to put up with me. In the end, I had the thermostat and safety valves rebuilt, and replaced one thermocouple for the oven. The worst part was cleaning the 60 years of grease that had accumulated in the stove. It took a lot of time and patience, but I got the whole thing put back together with the help of a friend or two. It was amazing to learn of the simplicity and precision of its workings. I am thrilled and feel rather proud that I restored it myself. Everyone who comes in my house admires the Roper. If youre in doubt about restoring your old stove, take a chance. Its worth the effort!
