I have a 1956 GE stove in my cabin that I'd like to keep going for the next 50 years. It's been in my family for 43 years so it means a lot to me. Parts for it are hard and sometimes impossible to find. I need a donor unit I can strip for parts to keep it going.
I found an almost identical working unit for sale in Portland, OR. I would like to talk to a person or company in Portland to see about hiring them to pick this appliance up (if I buy it), strip it for parts and then package and ship all those parts to me. I'm talking burners, elements, thermostats, switches, controllers, clock, chrome trim, etc. Anything that might wear out or need to be replaced one day. It doesn't have to be done in a big hurry. Once the stove is acquired, whomever is doing the stripping can do the work over a few months.
Can anyone recommend an individual or company in Portland that I could trust to do this for me at a reasonable price? A retired or semi-retired appliance repair person would be perfect for this job.
I know it seems bad to scrap a working antique appliance to keep another one alive but it's better that one lives for decades to come than both get scrapped in the next X amount of years for lack of available and affordable replacement parts. That's the way I see it anyways. If someone has a cache of parts for that stove and wants to sell them, please let me know.
