A Real Blessing

Vicksburg, MS - Not even the Comstock Stove Company, who originally built this big eight burner, double oven, circa 1940 stove, could restore the broken oven thermostats in this Christ Episcopal Church range. It seemed the only choice was to condemn the stove and buy a new one at a replacement cost of over $7,000.00. But, when Edward Habeeb read about our vintage thermostat rebuilding service in "Ask Anne and Nan", he decided to contact us to solve their unique problem. Ed sent us both antique oven thermostats, which were completely remanufactured back to original factory specifications. Then, with a few rebuilding suggestions, Ed, Jim Miller, Jack Barnes, Jim O'Brien, Allen Rooke and Mike Chaney completed the rest of the refurbishing themselves and saved their church a whopping $6,000.00!

Vintage Stove Thermostat Rebuilding


If the temperature in your stoves' oven is erratic or no longer working correctly, it’s time to consider having the thermostat rebuilt.


We can rebuild most thermostats from the 1920s – 1990s to original factory specifications. All parts are American made and of A-1 quality. Only certified technicians do all rebuilding. Each thermostat is leak-proofed, calibrated and oven tested. Once reinstalled in your stove, you may or may not need to have it readjusted due to the differences in oven construction.

If we rebuild your thermostat, we can provide free consultation to your technician by phone, the Internet, fax or mail in reference to removing or installing the unit. Depending on the make, you "may" be able to use the rest of your stove (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE OVEN). Look on the control body, either on the back or the side of the thermostat, and let us know what model or type number the control is. As soon as we get this information we can give you an estimate of the cost in rebuilding the unit.

Most new generic replacements that are available for a few old stoves come with a 90-day warranty. When we rebuild your original thermostat, we give a 2 year warranty on parts and service since the original stove thermostat is always the best core to use.


Thank you for your inquiry. We’ll be looking forward to seeing your oven work like new all over again!





Hot Baked Biscuits from



Dear Jack,

Here is the picture of my stove and me. It took a long time to get up to the old homestead in the mountains of western MD, but I finally installed the Wilcolator thermostat you repaired for my Roper stove last October. I can tell you that the biscuits don't burn up in two minutes as they did before. I'm inspired to order some of your publications to help me to keep the stove alive and well in the future.

I find it amazing and wonderful that a modern technology - the internet, helped me find you in order to get some older technology for my stove. And thank goodness there is someone like JES that cares about these old stoves.


Thanks and Best regards, 

Robin Shoen
