Vintage Range With Broken Thermostat

Question

I have a vintage Detroit Star range from the 30’s or 40’s.  It has a Robertshaw thermostat control for the oven, but I think that the therm or tube is defective. Any ideas on someone that can check it out?  I live in Duluth, MN.

Thanks,  Richard

  • Hey Richard, Is there a possibility you can send me a couple of pictures of the thermostat? Or can you get any numbers off of it? With pictures or numbers I may be able to find it for you.

Answer

Hey Richard,

The BJWA type thermostat replacement you can use is item #461037. It comes as a kit.

You can get it through etundra.com or you can call them at 800-447-4941 and any of the sales people can help you with it. You would need to call them for pricing and availability.

Let whom ever you talk to know that this is the one that I have recommended.

Hope this helps!
