    Default Vintage range

    I think th emodel number on this range is ER198DA (1 may be an I)
    Anyone have any idea where I can find info on this such as wiring diagram and year of production?

    Very nice old range but I need to check the wiring. This thing is scarey looking in regards to the wiring, couple of dangling wires, dangling grnd lug, etc. It is a wonder someone has not been hurt with it. The pigtails is just stuck in the back with taped wires. After I had plugged it in I noticed the pigtail had a couple of naked feeds about 1/2" either way of the metal where it was inserted into the stove!

    The make is Gibson.All the eyes work but one. One of the wires came off. That is no biggie, but the rest of the wiring really needs going over. Over time someone has spliced and or joined wire with just tape. There a couple of partial diagrams on the back, but they are not complete. Very nice old stove. Kinda thought it would be an interesting project IF it can be made safe again.

    I know my eyes had to bulge when I saw how the pigtail wiring was naked less than a 1/2" from the metal either way where it went into the back of the stove because the insulation was broken. This was after I had plugged it in to check the elements. There is no strain relieve. Looks as if the pigtail has a grommet like end to it that just pushed into the hole where today there would be a strain relief. That was pulled out and the wires just happened to have a piece of insulation still on them where they were against the metal.

    Thanks Jeff. I will check that link out.

    PS We had commented on the wiring seems bigger on these old stoves. I noticed this stove is not wired with stranded wire but solid wire.

    In 1877, a New England ice-box maker, Joshua Hall, and his three sons moved to Belding, Michigan and founded the Belding-Hall Company. They were attracted to the area because of the outstanding cabinet making skills of the Danish craftsmen who had settled there and because of the plentiful supply of ash and other hardwoods used to make the ice boxes.
    In the early 1900’s, the company was purchased by Frank Gibson, who also manufactured "ice refrigerators" in nearby Greenville, Michigan. The merger made the company the largest manufacturer in the industry at the time and a major supplier of cabinets for the first electric refrigerators. In 1932, Gibson began manufacturing its own line of electric refrigerators.
    The company continued to grow and introduced many innovations including the first automatic interior refrigerator light, the first upright freezer and the "Air Sweep" method of air conditioning distribution.
    In 1956, Gibson became part of the Hupp Corporation, which then merged in 1967 with White Consolidated Industries which was subsequently acquired by AB Electrolux in 1986.
    Today, a full range of Gibson appliances is offered through independent distribution nationwide. The Gibson "Golden Warranty" offers extra assurance to consumers.

    Gibson today is under the Frigidaire/Electrolux umbrella.
