I cannot find a model number on a vintage Magic Chef stove, which I have to have to order a replacement drip pan in order for it to be usable. This stove has 4 burners in middle of stove top with two 6 inch burner cover doors that open to the outside to uncover burners and fold back to the center to cover the burners. The oven is on the right side of the front and the broiler door is on the left (beside the oven door) and swings out in a 1/2 circle to expose the broiler unit. Has anyone seen a stove like this?
Re: Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove
You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.

You need to know the model number for your unit. You can go to searspartsdirect.com or to repairclinic.com and if any info is still available for that model, you should be able to pull up technical drawings and parts lists.
If oven does not heat properly, it will almost certainly be the oven thermostat. Read off the number on the sticker which is attached to the thermostat body. and give the spares shop the model number of the stove. Make sure plug or power is totally disconnected before working on the stove. Take one wire off at a time as you do the replacement. Please comment when completed.
You said,we are switching from Propane to natural gas and the stove didn't come
with orifices and a manufacturer said that it didn't need them that
they could be adjusted. they didn't tell us how. Its on a Magic Chef
I am glad you asked us before attempting to do this change!!!!
This is something that should be done by a qualified gas technician due to safety concerns.
Here is a number that you can call to see if there is a kit available for your model.

I'm glad I caught you before you started.
I know of some tragedies from this!
you asked where can I find a service manual for a vintage stove? General Electric, 24"wide, push-button, electric; 1950s.
Placard on inside of oven door is "erased", except for embossed numbers:
On the Left = 1 1245W2M2 10 7
On the Right = NM28552
You should go to GE and call them on the phone. They will have th resources to give you this Manuel! bless you, huuum
I have one of these same model stoves in near perfect condition. I found a website that has a lot of information on these and other vintage appliances as well. The sell parts and even buy appliances too. They will give you an appraisal, but that costs $50. Here is the URL address- http://www.antiqueappliances.com/index.htm
