Maintenance for Your Antique Stove

Maintenance for Your Antique Stove

Antique stoves are worth taking care of! Landers Appliance is here for all your appliance needs.

Vintage stoves are still in use in Maryland homes in abundance, many original to the homes themselves. A vintage stove has plenty of advantages that modern ones don’t; one could even find them to be more practical and efficient than expected. Like any stove, it will require maintenance. If you are using an antique stove for the first time in your home, consider what it has to offer, how to use it safely, and how Landers Appliance in Baltimore, Maryland, can help!

Why Antique Stoves Are Great

Antique stoves come well-equipped with everything you need to prepare a full-on feast. While different older stove models have different features, some come complete with two ovens, two broilers, four burners, and a timer, all in one appliance! There is no need to install an extra wall oven. 

Repairs can be simpler than you think; it only takes one stellar appliance repair company to help guide you through the diagnostic process, order the right part to replace, and complete repairs. If the range is in a particularly bad condition, an appliance company could retrofit it in-house and send back a powerful new vintage stove. What’s more, you can be sure that your vintage range will last longer than today’s models.

How to Inspect Your Antique Stove

Before using your antique stove for the first time, it is important to ensure it is in good working order, just to be on the safe side. Check the stove’s electric cord or gas lines. If they look old or possibly frayed, you can always replace them. Be sure that all of the stove’s parts are there. If inspecting and troubleshooting machinery is not your cup of tea, Landers Appliance is happy to come over and inspect it for you. Some parts may just require a simple cleaning to work well again, but in some cases, the symptoms may signal it needs a replacement.

Safety Tips for Using Your Stove

Although your vintage stove will last longer and prove perfectly suitable for your cooking needs, it will require some caution, too. There could be the potential for the stove to have a poisonous gas leak or need a GFCI outlet for safe powering. Antique stoves do not have many modern safety features like anti-tip brackets, shatter-proof glass shelves, and more.
