Question about Safety 1st Forerunner 5-Point
How do I use the serial and model numbers from an old, old Tappan wall oven (gas) to find replacement parts? The identification letters and numbers on the unit are: AZ12-1239-26-13149-8621 6741 GA.
The oven is a dual unit (upper = cooking box, lower = broiler); it uses gas and has an electric starter for the pilot light.
Apparently all new(er) models have a backslash amidst the numbers showing manufacturing date; ours does not - there is not a backslash anywhere. Too, the configuration (grouping) of the numbers on our wall unit -see above- do not seem to conform to any recent standards for identification. When I enter the letters/numbers into "search" for parts on websites, I get the message that there is no such model in their database(s). Most frustrating.
[The metal plate with the serial and model numbers stamped into it is located in the lower left-hand side of the upper space/oven box. It is about 9-inches long and is placed vertical to the oven floor - to the left of the hinge attaching the left bottom of the (upper) door to the unit.]
Any help you could give me in deciphering the numbers so I can order replacement parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Beth.
- - There is also an "x" stamped into the plate - it is at the far end of the plate, at the further end from the other letters/numbers and the same size as the other letters/numbers. Any 'explanation' for it has long since been scrubbed away, so I've no idea what it might mean. Any idea? - -
I found the above very old article that relates to your model.
