Fixen this old stove

I'm not prone to buying new things. I'd rather fix the old if I can. To me it's a great part of the sport. So I want to fix this old stove.

First of all, what is it? I've searched extensively and have not yet been able to identify the make or the model.

When I turn on the oven, it's like a crematorium. 6 inch long flames filling the cavern. Where can I look to learn how these things work, what breaks and how to repair them? Any good resources??

Re: Fixen this old stove

I just went through something similar. I would highly recommend you contact Todd Glenn at which is Sure Marine in Seattle. Send him your photos, and he'll probably be able to help.

The reason your oven sends a flame up is probably that it's missing a cap on top of the burner, if it's similar to my issue. The cap makes the gas go out a bunch of little holes to the side.

You can email Todd directly at

Re: Fixen this old stove

looks like a Flavia stove ,no longer in business.

worth checking the state of the gas supply tubes which are electro plated mild steel.
these rust easily and can become perforated.
also the gas valves get worn and tend to leak

personally the stove being about 30 years old,and as an ex certified gas engineer I would dump it if it is to be used on a yacht.
