An Anaheim Colony Resident Writes:
I found a place in Burbank which buys/sells/repairs vintage ovens such as O'Keefe and Merit and Gaffers &
Staffer, among others. My husband and I went down to look at what they had and found the staff very
knowledgeable about the history of these stoves and very helpful in getting parts and options on restoration.
We have a 1940's Gaffers & Stafer stove which had the typical problem of broken oven spring. Unlike other
advice I'd been given before, I was told that the springs were $8 and were not that hard to replace ourselves or
they'd send one of their people out to do it for us for a small fee. In the end we had someone come out and do
the springs, tune the burners and generally tune the oven up. They also had other parts we were missing such
as the kick plate and a burner knob and prices were really reasonable. They also do re-chroming and
enameling and will pick up and return. They had several stoves our age and older in really beautiful condition
(recondition) for those looking for vintage.
We did have several false starts on getting the guy to come out - it was someone's nephew who did this work on
the side after hours - but in the end we got a stove which works better than it has in 15 years and it cost us less
than $200 including parts. I was told that it was worth $3,700 restored, and to fully restore ours including
pickup and delivery would be $1,600. I'm so glad that I convinced my husband to not toss it out and replace it
with something modern.
They also have a website with pictures.
"Jim will come to your house and fix what ails the stove. He usually has the parts in his van and if it needs
something that he does not have, he will find or make it for you. Additionally, he is so very reasonable in costs.
We have had many parts re chromed and even sides and doors re porcelain-ed. The sign above the store in
Long Beach which opened in 1923 says......"We sold them when they were new!"...referring to the age of
manufacture of some of the really early stoves and refrigerators." - Barbara G.
"Jim has been repairing vintage stoves for the past 29 years, and carries a large selection of parts in his truck.
He made our old Gaffer and Sattler stove work like new in less than two hours! Repairs old gas stoves in the
Long Beach and North Orange County area."

" I have used Carolina's Antique Appliances for my 50's GE refrigerator. I know they refurbish stoves too.
These people are amazing, honest and I would do business again with them anytime. They used to have their
appliances in a space in Orange, I do not think they do now. When I had to have my frige worked on, he brought
me a loaner, FREE!!! Totally cool people." - PJ C.
