We're starting to tear into our Sovereign
and I'm working on the Princess stove from circa 1960
and was looking for some tips or resources. My plan is to get the white parts stripped and re coated with porcelain enamel and hopefully get some safety features added with regard to gas shut off when not lit. I haven't found any experts locally yet and so I'm looking for the original manual that I know was online a while ago but is now evading my search. I'm pretty sure I'll get every part new that is available and repair the rest. What's got me a bit stumped today is how to get the main oven burner control knob off the valve!
I'm really hoping to find someone who's worked on these before and could maybe direct me towards the parts I'll need etc. I need a cooktop ring too.
I'm thinking it's going to cost more than buying a nice safe new stove but I'm OK with that.
.....Hey, if I don't ask I'll never know :-)
