Brown Stove Works Inc - super service

Hi all

We have just purchased a 1980 sailboat. It has a 3-burner propane stove with oven for which I am very happy. I love to cook. But, no manual or instructions. I took pictures of the boat when I was down in August and looked at one of the pictures yesterday and was able to blow it up large enough to see the name "Brown" on the stove.

I did a web search and found "Brown Stove Works Inc. - serving our customers for over 70 years" As far as I could tell they only do home
and commercial stoves now. There was no email for service, but there
was one for sales. So, late last night I sent them an email that said:

" Please pass this email to whomever is best able to answer my questions.

There is no manual nor are there any instructions. Any help you can
give me in acquiring a manual or a copy of one would be super."

I never really thought I would hear anything - but I figured what the heck!

This afternoon I received an email from the Service department - short
and sweet:

"Please provide the mailing address for this to be mailed to.

Thank you,


Parts & Svc."

So - hats off to Allen at the Brown Stove Works Inc!

Service the old fashioned way! Ya got to love it!
