Stove is very old (at least 30 years) and made by
Westinghouse. Name says "Westinghouse Continental".
It has an oven under the range part and again overhead.
I find the label but can not read
the model number :-( . The label says 20.04 Kw.
The socket is made of a
heavy ceramic block. A picture is here:
If someone could tell me where to find one of
these things I would be very grateful. The usual
parts suppliers seem to be unable to proceed without
a model number.
Thanks in advance.
Go find a better parts store where the guy behind the counter is a real
appliance part guy. First clues are he is at least 55-60, smokes a cigar,
growls at customers and has a pot belly.
The twerp kid at the place where you went was probably a 19 year old HS
dropout with an earring who wouldn't know a heating element from a hole in
exactly around pittsburgh all appliance parts is the only place to get
super old parts.
I got burner controls for a 40 year old two oven range evewryone else
said wasnt avalible at all appliance, made my old friend very happy
she loves that range
Thanks for the response. No, the one in the pix is a
good one. The bad one actually is filthy but I could
get by with just one of the vertical springy metal
terminals, because the
bad connector has one burned through.
I am in Riverside, CA.

A related techniquie would be to buy a different socket that had
approximately the same springy metal terminal.
Another possibility, too late now but good for 20 years from now, is
to save little things, including springy metal.
I rarely have to go the store anymore, because I have so much stuff I
took off things I was throwing away, wingnuts, capnuts, push-back
springs, pull-back springs, flat springs, twist springs, non-metal
Dear Sharp Dresser,
I could not agree with you more but do not know where
to find this paragon. (No shortage of twerps around
here tho.) I am in Riverside CA (Southern CA).
