Rebuilding service... If you own an early gas stove with a non-functioning oven regulator like a Lorain, Robertshaw or Wilcolator Porcelain / Carbon Rod regulator there is good news!


These regulators were built so well that, in most cases, the original unit can be rebuilt to function just like new.


Write us at or call (805) 643-3532 if you are having trouble with your regulator and to see if you need the Rebuilding Service.



Rare documents like these are a must

have if you are a stove owner, especially with an early gas regulator.


With this material, your local stove or appliance tech will be able to quickly understand how these early oven heat control mechanisms work. Guesswork and service time is kept to a minimum.


Once the unit is examined, either it can be serviced right on the spot by your tech or if rebuilding is required just contact us at or call (805) 643-3532.
