Model Number
not sure ) :
Brand
Age
More than 10 years
It must be at least 25 years old - anyone know if it's by Beach Hamilton? It only says Beach so maybe not.
Also, any ideas for locating the model number? I"m not messing with it if it's on the back or side. It's not in
the fuse panel or inside the oven door.
So here's the thing - it still works after who knows how many years.
The thing is, there doesn't seem to be much variety in the heat level of the burners.
It's pretty much either full high or med/low to near off.
Is this something that can be repaired, or is due to the age of the range, or maybe is common for these older
ranges (ie. made that way?)
It's not fun boiling pasta when it goes from boiling over to not boiling at all - with nothing in between : )

Should I repair or replace it?
Thanks for your advice.

They still have a 20 inch electric range?...have seen some gas but not electric.

If you can get a new one, go for it...many/most of the parts for the old one would be NLA now. We would have to get some kind of universal parts and adapt them to work on the older range.
