Older Kenmore oven with small side oven and a griddle in the middle. 100% functional, everything works. We used this for about a year in the house we bought, works great. We have upgraded to a newer convection oven so we don't need this anymore. This would complement a retro kitchen. Has a couple small chips in the porcelain and could use a cleaning from sitting in my garage. Comes with original manual. Does not come with a cord.

No calls after 9PM please.

Wonder if that's a self-cleaning model?

Kenmores of this vintage did not have a latch lever like most models did; they had a servo to operate the latching mechanism. So, there's not the visual you get with, say, a GE self-cleaner. The presence of two ovens and the griddle makes it probably upper-MOL, though I can see from the pictures that the companion oven is continuous-clean.

Who would have manufactured this?

It was made by Kelvinator. My neighbor Ruth had one except hers was black with brushed chrome top. She was glad to see it go when she got a new GE a couple years ago.

Yep, Kelvy.

This is the same frame Electrolux (formerly WCI, who inherited the frame when they bought out Kelvy) uses today for the Frigidaire 40-incher. They've also provided ranges built on it to GE and Whirlpool over the years.

I think it goes back to 1962 at least. If anyone knows more about when it was first used by Kelvy, I'd be very interested to know.
