This looks like a later model. How long were ranges of this type made?

That One's....

....Pretty recent; current models use the same basic architecture.

I think you should go and take a look at it in person. I looked at one of these when they were new, and found it pretty flimsy, nothing like classic Frigidaires. That broken storage drawer handle should give you a bit of a clue.

I think this one is a self-cleaner, in the large oven.

Run away as fast as you can!

Note the handle construction on the storage drawer. That was not early American decor with two knobs, but the anchor points of a cheap, broken handle.

OH so right!

That is CHEAPNESS personified, I knew someone who had the Kelvinator version, the oven door turned yellow in a few years,one, because it was painted not porcelian and two because the door has no insulation in it....none!

Stoves like this...

were a huge part of what made us go vintage. We looked at new coil stoves; the technology really hasn't changed much, but the quality sure has. You could probably get a vintage 40" that's way better built for less.

My neighbor Ruth just got rid of a Kenmore version of this range. Hers was black with a stainless or brushed chrome top. She just about despised it; it came with the house when they bought it.

--Is very much a lot of planned obsolescence there!

Anything that's THIRTY-INCHES & cheaper in price & quantity is at least MORE better made!
