Iím gonna guess they are Hotpoint.

I sure would love to find a stove in white with that low, counter height back control panel, it has a nice look to it. I donít ever recall seeing a top freezer refrigerator with a recessed hand grip on the freezer door, instead of an actual handle.

Those look like bol Whirlpool .  That square label on the frig. and the grill are reminescent of Whirlpool in that era.  


Gotta love the completely color matched kitchen.  The floor, cabinets, appliances, and sink.  It kind of makes the almond GE can opener look out of place.

I once had a Coldspot that had handles just like that so Iím going with Sears.

Refrigerator likely is a Coldspot (by Whirlpool) as they inverted the grill for the Sears versions. Not sure about the range.

I have that exact fridge-same color even-1972 WP "automatic":manual defrost,but there is a small heat coil on the fridge evaporator wired across the thermostat to operate when the compressor is off.

They're Whirlpools. The stove looks almost exactly like the (Whirlpool builit) Sears stove we had, just with a different control panel. And the fridge is a Coldspot clone.

Get em while you can

If those are for sale, grab them. That Kenmore stove we had lasted 45 years. Donít make them like that now. Looks to be in mint condition from the pic. And the fridge, sink, and cabinets too.
