re-wiring an old electric stove

Hi, guy, I can't supply you much information about this old electric stove.

You see this woman I am working for ask me if I new of able in Vermont
State or Western N.Y. near the Granville, N.Y. area that might be some-
one who could re-wire an old electric stove.

The problem right now. The carpenters have pile some much stuff on
and around it, I can't tell what make it is, or how old it is.

So simple put, if there anyone out there, that has done this, and could you post back, if you want to, and submit a guess-estimate, typical
cost for this type of job.

What the stove is un-cover, then I'll post back with the details.

Run a new wire TO the stove?
Or rewire the electric INSIDE of the stove?

Dave.,, Bet ya it is the latter question due to rewire inside the stove that is very limited option due need specal high tempture conductor and have to bring up to modern code stuff what it required.

Sometime it is cheaper to get this .,,

Note : I have nothing to do with this link but just a suggest about where to find a very old restored stoves that all.


P.S. a note here there are few other stuff you can goggle for it there is tons of it.

Tell her to buy a new one. Unless you know how to repair old stoves. Or let someone else fix it if they can.
If it worked before you worked on it. You did something wrong.
