We have an Tappan Fabulous 400 in our kitchen that is from 1968, when our house was built. The burners work fine even though the oven sections don't and we plan to use it as long as we can, but my real concern is when it comes time to replace it what we can replace it with? I haven't seen any stove/ovens on the market that are designed like this and I'm dreading remodeling our kitchen to make a standard stove fit in. Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions of what's out there? I love that we have cabinet space above and below it and hate to lose that if there's a solution out there we just don't know about.

** Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions **

I can only think of a couple of options:

1. Get the one you have repaired. That would likely be best to attempt before running it into the ground.

2. Try to find a used one to purchase and hope it's in better shape than yours.

3. Remodel your kitchen as I haven't seen anything even close to such a design on the market in 15-20+ years. :(

Have to tried repairing the unit you have or getting it repaired?? Maybe you won't need to consider replacing it for a while yet?
