I would say

This is one of the last Norge ranges before Fedders took over from Borg Warner

A question about the burners

ovrphil's profile picture
Why are the burners standing up in this provided, out of the provided slots? It's like someone beat the livin' daylights out of them...left the burners on for a month while on vacation, pulled up too hard to distort the shape, or something happened. Aren't these burners pretty tough - how did someone distort them to where (if this is what we're seeing here)they do not fit into their designed cavity anymore?

My only experience is ...on the newer coils, which are thinner, I couldn't get the coil out on a GE stove and eventually bent the prongs, causing an irregular fit.

In the photo, the left and right burner are shown.Notice, lift off appears imminent. UFO coils?

Not latched

If you look at the bottom left, the burner was not latched in the little slot cut in the burner bib, which latches in place. At least that is true of GE ranges. I don't think the owner took the time to make sure everything was in place, before snapping the shot. IMHO.

I see what you mean, lotsosudz. I hope that's true, but why on earth would you want to photograph something that gives rise to questions? I know, I know...because.

There sometimes can be no answers to life's meaning, too. :-)
