Default Vintage Range (circa 1948) Needs Help
Model Number: RK-10   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: More than 10 years

The back right unit on this range doesn't work. On each of the other three units, one coil heats fine while the other doesn't heat at all. All units are original except the back left one, which along with the drip tray doesn't fit properly. I'd like to replace it and the tray with refurbished original parts.
Also, this range is landlord-owned. Normally the apartment manager would junk the appliance and replace it with another (newer-used but cheaper-quality and uglier) one. But I love this big old, beautiful vintage range and don't want to send it to a landfill! The manager is willing to help with replacement parts and installation, but not diagnosis.
So my three questions are:
1. What might be wrong with this range? (Oven seems to work fine.)
2. Where can I find a refurbished back left unit and drip tray?
3. Who in Seattle has experience making reasonably-priced repairs specifically on pre-1950 ranges?

Thank you.
