Is this really 1951?

I think it might be a '50, but I'll let someone really knowledgeable like Mark kenmore 71 answer that part of the question. Whatever year it is, it's not TOL - this is a single-oven range, not a double-oven model. But it's a high-end single-oven model.

The giveaway is the number of large knobs on the backguard. Single-oven models had two - one for the oven control, the other for the minute timer. Double-oven models had three - one for each oven, plus the minute timer.

Also, if you'll look closely at the backquard, just above the right rear burner, you will see a sort of square object just below the bright-metal trim strip. This is a cap for an oven vent. If this were a double-oven model, there would be two of these.

It also does not have the deep-well cooker found on TOL ranges. But it's not a range to turn up your nose at - someone was very happy to get it new.

I am GUESSING its model number will end in 60, like RM-60 or something.

And it's definitely not a "Eames Era" as indicated in the bottom of the ad.

The RM series was 1949-50 and marked the debut of the large, flat monotube Radiantube surace element. This was the next down from the TOL range for the series. It had all of the features of the top range except for the second, smaller oven.


Sandy look at ALL of the pics. It has a deep well cooker. The first pic has the deep well element in its upper position.

Thanks For the Info:

I was close on the model number, huh? I didn't pick up on the Thermizer because A) You're right, I didn't see all the pics and B) This one uses a Radiantube element, and I'm used to that "hotplate" element used on earlier Frigidaires.

John, Mark is Da Man on Loewy Frigidaires, so you can trust him for info.
