Anyone have this 1977 magic chef stove/oven

We are rebuilding our stove from the ground up and I am looking for clear photos of the decals on the inside under the burner area so I can replicate them here at the sign shop. The one on the left shows the BTUs, clearances etc. and the one on the right shows the serial number and some other stuff I can't make out on mine. Pics would be appreciated

Ok, I have blown the pictures up and my computer and can read most of the information, Can anyone help me out with filling in the blanks.
Please have a look at the PDF, Anything I have put red question marks next to is where I need more info. I suspect a lot of the bits I am missing in Generic info like the company name and location etc... and the years of the stoves manufacture likely don't have to match

I have a suburban combo stove/oven I just pulled from a 1975 Argosy 26. If you were in the Tulsa area, You could have it, although I think it would be problematic to ship because of it's weight.

This one will be fine, after the rebuild it goes in for inspection. Does yours still have its aluminium stickers inside that you could take pictures of for me to replicate :-)

I can look and see. It's a suburban, and not a magic chef though...

77 magic chef

I have a Magic Chef in my 77 Argosy. It is very similar but does not have a piezo igniter on the front panel. The label appear to be very similar. The gas lines run over it so here are some quick shots. I will more try later with better lighting.

1977 Magic Chef

Here is a picture from ours out of our 77 Argosy. If you are unable to see it I can tell you what it says. My right hand one is unreadable.

You guys are awesome! This will definitely fill in my blanks.

PS after a bit of trying to figure that "piezo" switch we discovered it was just a plain old oven light switch :-) good thing I didn't order new parts before we took it apart!

More Info

TSL

If you need anymore info I have a magic chef in the 76 overlander I am working on. Looks just like yours. It is in great shape except for a broken oven door handle. Have you had to take the door off and apart. How big a chore was that? Wonder where a handle could be found? Let me know about the signs.

I didn't have to take the door off on mine, here is a link to a magic chef manual that may cover how to remove the door.

Taa Da!!! Thank you all for your help by sharing your pictures. Today I made a film, burnt a screen, and silkscreened a few off. Now I just need to get a hang of using the number punch to line the numbering up on the embossable aluminium :-)

Magic Chef labels

Very Impressive. You could sell those to others restoring vintage Airstreams.

Thanks for the input. The manual gave me the part number I need, but no info on the door removal. I hope to contact the parts folks and see if they can tell me how. The oven I have works great looks great except for the door. The door handle has been repaired with sheet metal screws and the glass has some flaky looking stuff between it and the inner glass. Kinda like the vista view window issue. I am stubborn though, I will get this.

Found this online for replacing hinges on a household model magic chef. When the hinges and screws are removed the door will come apart which should give you the access you need for cleaning and repair.

https://youtu.be/tAypQqC5cxo


And this...


Step 1

Open the door completely.

Step 2

Flip the hinge latches all the way down on both sides of the door.

Step 3

Close the oven door. Lift the door up and away from the Magic Chef oven to remove it. Set the door down with the inside facing up.

Step 4

Remove the screws along the bottom of the door frame connecting the inside door frame. Lift the inner frame off.

Step 5

Remove the screws holding the faulty hinge in place. Lift the hinge out of the door.

Step 6

Insert the new hinge into the oven door. Install the screws that hold it in place.

Step 7

Replace the inner door frame. Install the screws that hold the frame to the door.

Step 8

Replace the door onto the oven. Open the door all the way. Flip the hinge latches up.

!Door is Off

Turns out I didn't have to take off the door at the hinges to get at the handle. Just took of the outside trim and it all came apart. The glass has these lines that are all flaking off. I wonder if they serve any heat retarding function. Looks bad and paint stripper takes them off. I might have to break down and buy new glass and handle.
