Unfortunately you have given me the correct Model numbers, But the serial numbers are incorrect. Without the complete model number and serial numbers I can't date the manufacture of these units.

If you could call the person and ask them to look op the serial numbers?

Either this or I can point you to a web site that can date these appliances for you at a later date when you have this information.

The information I gave you is all that was on the nameplates;can my guess of 10-20 years old is somewhere near right; if so, I shall proceed with the purchase from owner, as both units appear to be in excellent condition - just give me yoor off hand opinion, please. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX

If they are both in excellent shape and there are no unusual sounds when running I would go ahead and buy them so long as they are at a good price.
