This cool stove has me stumped.  Any help with the ID?  It appears to be missing something as well....like a tank I am guessing.  Sorry for the pic quality.37624170_1m.jpg 37624170_2s.jpg 37624170_3s.jpg

Pictures aren't much help, but my feeling is... propane. A nice propane cooktop.

Looks a little like the stoves I had in Japanese apartments.  They had a gas tap on the counter top and you just plugged in a rubber hose.  Meal complete, the stove was unplugged from the gas and stuck under the sink.  Does it have somewhere to hang a tank?  How about a better look at the knobs?

I know sometimes people dont like when auctions get posted but I doubt anyone is bidding on this.  The pics are really small if I download them from the site so instead I will just post the link.  The controls are real nice.  I like this stove but would need to be able to use it.  Here is the link....

Ya I agree, those look like levers and there are more than 3 which is the number of burners.  Wish I knew what make it was.

The back frame rail has a hole in it likely for a regulator or somthing to attach to and the large space in the middle makes me think it perhaps housed a tank?

Was it cast iron?  Sounds like a cool little stove, too bad it went missing I will low ball on this one and see what happens.  If some one else was going to bid, PM me and I wont.

You should be able to use the hose and regulator for a propane BBQ on that. If it was made to take a standard 1lb propane can, you can easily find adapter hoses on the 'web.

Remember this "little" stove I bought at an auction?  Pictures can be deceiving!!  This thing is an absolute beast of a stove top and is very very well made.  I could not believe how heavy it is...at least 40 lbs.  Completely cast iron and porcelain from head to toe and much bigger than I anticipated....19 x 17 inches.   The frustrating part is I cant ID it.  I am pretty certain it was part of a bigger cooking system but there is no name branding anywhere.  It has an awful lot of casting marks and numbers everywhere but no name.  Any help would be appreciated.  Also....I think it is set up for natural gas (?) but not sure.  Would like to convert to propane and use it but if i cannot I will end up selling it.  Any thoughts on how to safely convert it?

Generally, swapping from NG to LP is just a matter of jetting. There's a very good chance that the jets on your stove are adjustable. Unscrew the jet itself. If there's a needle inside, you can adjust the jet by simply screwing or unscrewing it so the needle restricts or doesn't.

You'll need a proper regulator for it. Sometimes just a BBQ reg will work.

If there's a place near you that sells LP appliances and fuel, take it to them. We have an Ed Staub's here and the guy who runs it is pretty expert at everything gas.

That critter is right purty and I'd love to see it cookin' again!

To me with the valve in the middle plus the tabs on the rear frame and the jet seems like it's missing a burner. possibly faced down for a broiler? Is there a place on the sides to hook up a gas line?

Maybe a latch for the cook top, or a line connects behind that valve for an accessory oven?

Its also in line with the center opening, and I'd be thinking  middle griddle,  (holes seem narrow for that though)

That's why I thought faced down for a broiler. Slots on top as vents? Or maybe used as a warmer

Thanks for the replies.   It is maybe missing something as the bracket in the back has one more hole that isnt used.  The burners simply fit into the holes (gravity keeps them in place) and plug into the valves behind the controls.  The controls are well designed as when they hang loose in the off position they cannot turn and when they are turned on they stay upright.  The controls feel so smooth.  I am telling you, this thing is just an incredibly well built stove top.  So heavy duty....it has to be American or Canadian built.  It is over the top heavy weight. I cant believe I cant find out where it came from.  Here are a few more pics....

Perhaps the openings on the stove top were for a warmer rail.  They have the raised knobs to keep a pan or pot off the surface.

So are you saying that the process of spinning the plug is what adjusts the gas flow?  Back to my original question, do you think I could make it work with propane after the installation of a regulator?  Judging by the gas tube I am assuming it used to be natural gas.

 As Timm mentioned, yes you can; you need the regulator (BBQ is probably fine) AND (unless you get lucky and the thing was designed for prop) you need propane sized orifices.  This thing in your hand:

[20200904_171959_copy_665x887] 


The openings in the mixing chamber of the burners (seen below)  and the orifice jet above, are what regulate the air/fuel mix.

I would give it a shot and see what the flame looks like.  if a nice blue flame, you got lucky.  some stoves have a half strap of metal for adjusting the air flow through the apertures below. 

If you are running lean you might be able to adjust the air flow down with a made up strap?   

If rich, you need to close the jet above somehow.  Usually they do this by changing to a smaller jet,  but where would you find one?

Interesting.   Thanks for the info.  Never done a propane conversion before but how hard can it be, right?  What could possibly go wrong?
  The burners have another interesting feather that may allow me to adjust for lean/rich.  Each heavy cast burner tube has one of these on it...

That last piece there looks like it allows you to run richer or leaner in that burner - air/fuel combined of course. Kind of slows or increases the flow in case flames are too high or low on that burner.

Most Petromax lanterns have a blade like that up top in their burner J-tubes, above the orifice. 

That's my best edjukated guess anyway.

If it's set up up for natural gas, it will burn extremely rich on propane. the best thing to do at this point is to get a can of propane, a reg, and try it out!

It's 50/50 that it was set up for propane unless you have some reason to think otherwise. Those orifices aren't adjustable, but they are replaceable. It looks to me that they are 1/8" NPT threads, so it shouldn't be too hard to swap them out if you need to.

Since you don't have whatever the middle burner was--and I'm in the broiler seats--I'd get a 1/8" NPT plug and replace the orifice with it just to be sure no one turns that valve on by accident. It wouldn't be an emergency, but it would sure get your attention.
