Hoover Wringer Washer

This is quite unusual and the first time I have seen one quite like this, for it is the 3104 from (apparently) October 1971 but it has the earlier style control panel for wash/wring - I seen a few of the later ones with the rocker switch and foot safety control, but not this one.

Very interesting looking cooker. Like the grill accessory that's up top.

What's the hose hanging off the left side for? Is that an additional piece or is that how it's connected to gas?

Hose on the left is a gas ignitor

you poke it in the pilot light and ignite it to then light your oven or grill or as it was often used for to light a fag if no matches lol

It was common for gas cookers in the 1960s to have the grill (broiler) at eye level. The grill pan support is extended on each side to allow up to three plates to be stacked on each side so they could be warmed. If you look carefully you can see in the centre of the hob where the pilot was located for the burners.

This was the TOL model, I am really not sure of the purpose of the dial on the left rear, there was a cheaper model without this control and with solid oven door. As Austin says the tube on the side was a "portable" pilot for the oven and grill, not the safest arrangement in my opinion

Hi all.

The seller of this machine was in touch with me a few years ago. He recently got back in touch and I said that I would add it to the ebay forum thread.
So, available we have a 3019T in Colchester. Heres hoping that it finds a safe new home....

Well it was was a surprise to see what that sold for. £82! I even exclaimed "Goodness Gracious" in shock


Actually those who have met me would know that it was a rather more earthy and succinct exclamation of two words :)

Certainly not in good shape as its missing the lift up water outlet but might be good for spares AND it comes with a "Twosome" jointing strip which is quite rare
