A reader submitted the following query in response to a previous Memories article on Modern Maid stoves.  If you can help Mr. Laird, please send him an e-mail at the address shown below, and copy me at jolleyh@bellsouth.net so that I can report the outcome.

I have read your interesting story on the history of Modern Maid stoves.  I am asking your possible assistance as to where I may find the model number of a built-in oven maid by Modern Maid.

I purchased the house in which I live about 20 years ago and the oven worked until about a year ago.  I have contacted several local service repair companies concerning what might cause the bottom heating element to not heat up.  I have had the element tested and it seems to be operational.  The clock does not work and I wonder if that could be the problem.  I am attaching a picture (from an ad I found on the internet) of the model of the oven. 

I would like to have the oven repaired but I can't since I cannot find the model number.  There is a Model Number in the broiler section of the oven but it does not seem to match any model number on the different web sites that have parts for the oven.  I tried to locate a manual for the oven but without the proper Model Number I could do that.

If you could be of help, I would appreciate it.  Maybe you might know the Model Number of the oven shown in the picture.  Any assistance such as where I may find any information on the oven might help me save the oven.

 Thank you in advance for your understanding and consideration in helping me solve this problem.
