Wedgewood help

Just picked up a vintage wedgewood stove. 4 burners on the right and a wood type thing on the left. Have a model number off the tag. Trying to find out as much as I can about this stove. Biggest thing I need to know is if it's LP or NG. Model number is hard to read so it's either 18053A L8053A or T8053A. Not to sure at this point. Any help would be great thanks.

Welcome to the forums! You may want to post a picture of the nametag so we can see it and the stove, too. Your best information may come from googling the name/model number, but we'll give it a try. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html

Help us help you. Photos would be very helpful. As would be state and/or country of residence very helpful and maybe city of residence if in USA helpful too. It's the wood burning side of the stove that might baffle me... None like those out this section of the country.

Natural Gas or Propane? Could be either depending upon area of the country, prior ownership and actual appliance manufacturers model and appliance age. Such info likely on the manufacturers rate plate. Need more info to help you. Kindly use reply button and post back above info and photos if possible.

Very likely it is set up for natural gas. Just a guess...

What might appear to you as a wood burner or wood burning section/side on the left is actually a griddle. As noted in on the rate plate. Photos of the top looking down or slightly downwards with all the clutter on top removed may revel more details and any possible missing parts....

Same for the front. A close up view of the front panel burner knobs and control panel above burner. Possibly oven insides, pilot assembly and broiler should any questions for such be of interest to you.

Photos say thousands of words...

I went thru many sites and 100's of pictures but your stove has major differences that set it apart from most of the Wedgewoods I looked at.

Yours has what looks like a griddle or opening on the left. No other stove I found had that left hand item. Most of the Wedgewoods had a center griddle surrounded by four burners.

Yours has what appears to be a wood burning section in the left oven opening. When I use "kindler" in my search an almost identical unit comes up except for the valves.

Yours has a front gas valve configuration that didn't match any other stove I found.

There are many antique gas stove collector and restoration sites online you could check with.

I realize this is a couple of months old. To convert to LP if it is set for natural gas, close down the orifices. Most of the old Wedgewoods and Okeefe's used coaxial style valves. Also you must vent this to the outside to use the Kindler.
