Thanks so much for all the ideas!!

We have an electrician coming out this weekend, and I'll make sure to tell him what you said.

You're the best!

I'll update you on our progress next week...

Yep, we took the Univolt out and it is definitely dead. It was actually pretty scary looking--it should have had "FIRE HAZARD" painted all over it!

I was expecting it to be a pain to remove since it was under the oven, but all it took was removal of four screws on the oven, disconnecting the gas line and cutting two wires, and we were golden! (oh, and of course, two strapping guys to pull out the oven...)

We'll be replacing that Univolt VERY soon. Thanks again for all your advice!!

You might want to save the fuse panel off the univolt, we did on the advice of others here and it made installing the new inverter much easier.

Thanks!! :)

We are really good at following instructions!

We have contacted Randy and ordered our new inverter and a new fuse panel!

We bought a 1974 Service Manual

AND

We are keeping the fuse box from the old Univolt as a precaution.

Thanks again to everyone...will let you know how it goes when we hook it all up!
