Magic Chef 72' Tradwind

Replace of keep?

The oven part looks new almost never used, the stove top generally 'looks' bad surface rust etc. Look like you'd expect a 72' oven with little care use. It's outside of the trailer that's getting a full Monty.

I'm cool with cleaning, painting, getting things chromed and up and working again if it is worth the effort. Is it? I can set it up,and bench test it it all, no problem ( I think). I just want the collective opinion on if I should? Will it give me years of hassle free use or should I just get a new oven and stove top?

Thoughts?
Thanks
Dave

All most the same question I can ask about the fridge. It does work on electrical as it's been my garage beer fridge during to destruction stage of my full Monty. I need to test on propane. Interior again looks new, out side looks like crap but fully restorable.

And thanks for all the answers

More reading of the forums I answered my own question and pulled the pin and ordered a Dometic CU- 434 that had been discussed in another thread. It looks way better than the old Magic Chef that needed lots of love and a questionable future.

Anyone need a barely used Magic Chef from 72' that look terrible?

Hi

Just to reenforce the decision you have already made: Rebuilding gas appliances *is* possible. It's generally not worth the money once everything moves from "dirty" to "rusted out".

Replace. first decide if you need the oven and if not, get a stove top. We junked ours and also lost about 40 lbs weight in the process. Some of that will be made up in the new cabinet, but well worth it.
