HI--could you please tell me the dimensions of your Tappan stove and note any defects?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
42 inches. Only defect is the big door needs a new screw to tighten it. I could fix that pretty easiliy. Other than that. Nothing really wrong at all. Works great.

Thanks for the update. This model and series is very popular with retro look folks, especially in fine condition. They are a bit bulky, however, compared to newer devices but replacement parts are readily available on the secondary market, which is a plus. I have located several in what appeared to be in similar condition and the prices ranged from a low of $175 to a high of $550. It is truly a case of finding the right buyer and market, and eBay would give you strong national exposure, for sure. Hope this helps guide you. Best, Will
