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.

Police Need To Stop The Road Cowboys - And Response (2)

Where is our highway patrol?  If they were known to regularly patrol our interstate highways through our city I don't think it would take long before the "truckers" were aware of it.  There are places in our country where this is the case.   When I have traveled Interstates 24 and 75 I may see the occasional car pulled over but rarely if ever is it an 18-wheeler. ...

I hate to do this, right on the heels of my monthly ‘Walk in the Garden,’ but I have more things on my desk that I dare not leave unnoticed before tomorrow’s Star-Spangled celebration. Foremost is the plea to anyone who shoots off firecrackers to please wear eye protection and ask watchers to stand back. Our eye doctors say firecracker-related injuries have doubled in the last three ... (click for more)
