Boman-
I came across your thread while researching the Kenmore Country Kitchen stove/range. I have the same Kenmore Country Kitchen stove/range that you have pictured. My paperwork (yes, original!) and tag have model #143.9007100 on it. The Sears parts site will give you full diagrams under this model number.

I need a thermostat for it. Sears doesn't have them anymore and I haven't been able to find one similar anywhere else. I have tried everywhere. Tried a couple that I was told were perfect matches but no luck. The wiring on mine is all in order according to the schem.

Other than that it is in perfect working order and it used daily by my family of 4. I have had it for 14 years and twice have dismantled, cleaned, rewired some of it and repainted the cast parts. It is a beautiful piece and I would hate to have to part with it because the oven doesn't work.

Any ideas or help with the thermostat would be greatly appreciated!

Thumbs up

Jay/Jeff:

You can add a free Echo GT2400 string trimmer to this list, as I found one of them last night.

Jay: Filled, yes, to some degree, but I'm a neat freak. It either will run 100% and have a designated spot or be sent to Mike Merritt of the small engine forum here for him to use as a parts unit. We work as a team with these things. LOL.

I also picked up a 1950's (I think?) Craftsman work bench/tool chest bench (these are $250 in the Sears catalog) and a bag full of tools for the princely sum of $32 last night.

I picked up a HUGE box of stuff from this same person (they are moving to AZ) for $21. LOL.

Any #'s on the control itself that we might try...I got no where with the original # from Sears

The wiring on mine is all in order according to the schem
Can you post it here?

Marc, I have no idea if the stat in this one is good. I have not done much testing on it, except turn it on to see what works and what does not. I did clean and paint ( engine black high-temp ) the top piece of cast. I haven't gotten around to the rest of it yet. Any idea of the age of yours? Used when you bought it, I guess. What did you give ..,er, what value would you put on it? I'm thinking a selector knob should not be hard to match for it as long as the wattage rating is enough. I have one in a small Kenmore range that has the markings that tell me where to put what as far as the wires go. I have not really taken the time to see if it might work on this bigger range though. Wish you luck in your research. I have not been able to find much.

Talking

Thanks for the replies!

I have pics of the cover of the manual, the schematics page for the switch and the cover from the switch, but I don't have time now to figure out how to put them in the post. I can email them to you if you want-or quick instructions on how to include them here would be appreciated.

Switch info- Robertshaw Model RA-I(or1)04-36, 15 AMP 240 Volts, Date of manufacture is 12-70.

There can't be that many of these floating around- The serial number-and I verified it-is #171.

We acquired this from a family that had had it for a number of years in storage. Their plan was to build their dream kitchen around it. TRUE STORY HERE...They GAVE it to us because they knew it was going to a good home!!!! The only type of value I can place on it would be from previous posts about the one on Ebay, and from someone I talked to right after getting it that said he saw one once for sale for $1,200-that was in 1990. I guess, based on that, the Ebay amount can't be that far off the mark.

Thanks again for everyone's help

MarcW

You would need to upload the pics to your own server and then post them here....oh....and don't forget to give me permission to post them if you e-mail them to me.

MarcW are you out there?

I just found this thread much like you did, however 2 years have gone by. I have this stove too, and would be thrilled to find some way to get copies of your original paperwork.

Still around...

Yep-I can get them for you. I can scan them and email them if you like, or copy them and snail mail them.

I ended up taking mine down and storing it as I couldn't find a thermostat to work. Any ideas would be appreciated.

ebay value

I have a copy of the one on ebay also. On top of the price it brings on ebay, you also have to consider shipping. I would also like to have a copy of the schematics if possible. Be fine to send email if you can. Let me know of any charge if you do.
Thanks.

Thank you MarcW

I am so glad you are still around and replied. I would very much like the copies of the original paperwork, and email is fine. Please send to [email protected] and if there is anything I can do in return, let me know. Maybe I'll come up with a solution for the thermostat problem.
I was very sorry to read that you had to stop using yours. I haven't actually brought mine home yet, it is still in my grandparent's house. They bought it in 1969 or 1970 new from Sears in Gadsden(I think), Alabama. It hasn't been used in years, but I am designing my new kitchen around it. I do have back up stovetop and ovens just in case, but it will still be there. Very sentimental attachment you see.

Boman- I'm in Blount County, AL sort of NE Alabama. Well, maybe east central.
