Barker, Geneva, N. Y. Application May 11, 1935, Serial No. ‘21,937 2 Claims. >(Cl. 126-—1) ' This invention relates to improvements in cook ing ranges‘ and more particularly to coal and wood ranges and combination coal, wood and gas ranges. ‘ 5 One of the difficulties encountered in connec— tion with the manufacture of enameled stoves, of the above type, is the fact that when certain of the parts, such as the lower contacting edges of the side walls and front frame and the top 10 edge of the main bottom of the range, become cracked and chipped, it has been difficult to re place suchdamaged parts without practically dis~ mantling the entire stove. Another objection has been the labor and ex 15 pense involved in replacing the oven bottoms which frequently became broken. The general object of the present invention is to overcome the foregoing objections. by ex tending the lower ends of the front frame and 20 side walls or panels to cover the sides and front of the main bottom of the range, and by so mounting the oven bottom that the latter can be readily removed. Other objects and advantages of the invention 25 will be understood as the speci?cation is consid ered in connection with the accompanying draw ings, in which: Figure 1 is an exploded view showing the various parts of the stove body including side and 50 rear walls, and front frame, also the main oven bottom and front and side panels of the oven; Figure 2 is a fragmentary front view partly in section of the front frame showing the main bot tom of the stove and the oven bottom in place 35 above the main bottom, one side wall of the oven being also shown; Figure 3 is a section on the line 3—-3 of Figure 2; Figure 4 is .a vertical sectional fragmentary view showing the relationship between the main ‘W oven bottom,‘ the front frame, the front panel and one of the legs of the stove; and Figure 5 is a sectional fragmentary view through the side walls of the ovenrand the oven bottom showing the manner in which the oven 4 bottom is supported on the ledges of the side walls. ' ' Referring more particularly to the drawings, l denotes a coal and wood or combination coal, 0 wood or gas range body comprising a main rec tangular bottom 2, side walls 3 and 4, a rear main wall 5 and a front frame 6. The main bottom 2 of the range is formed with a ?ange ‘I depending from a ?at rectangular top face or bottom 8. 55 This ?ange, is slightly offset with respect to the top portion-8 toprovide a shoulder 9, for a pure pose presently described. The side walls 3 and 4 and the front frame 6 are formed with similar, depending vertical flanges I0, I I and I2 respectively which extend down over 5 and conceal the two side faces and the front face of the ?ange 1 depending from the main bottom 2, and are formed with inwardly extending hori Zontally disposed flanges l3, l4 and I5, on the respective side walls and front frame, which seat 10 upon the shoulder 9, when the parts are thus as sembled. At'the rear of the range main back wall 5 is formed with a depending ?ange I1, which conceals the rear face of the ?ange ‘I. The lower edge of the ?ange ‘l of the main bottom 15 rests upon supporting lugs of usual construc tion c1(not shown) with which each leg I9 is pro vide . The side walls 3 and 4 of the stove and front frame 6 are secured to the main bottom 2 by means of bolts 29. Thus, the ?ange 1 is provided with bolt holes 2| which register with holes 22 in the depending flanges of the side walls and front frame. Nuts 23, serve the purpose of securing the bolts in place. 7 - ' A front base strip or plate 24 and two side base strips 25, only one of which is shown, respectively cover and conceal the depending vertical ?anges of the side walls and front frame, thus eliminat ing the necessity of enameling these parts as well 30 as the?ange of the main bottom. Adjacent strips are secured together through the medium of the legs [9, to which they are bolted. Access to the coal burner box part of the stove is had through an opening 21 in the front frame, 35 and an opening 28 in the frame provides access to the oven compartment 29. The oven space is enclosed at its sides and rear by oven side panels or walls 39 and BI and the main back wall 5 re spectively. An oven bottom or plate 32 remov- 4Q ably closes the bottom of the oven. This bot tom or plate is supported at its sides upon ledges 33 formed on the oven side panels, and at its rear end rests upon a stepped portion or shoulder 34 formed on the main back of the range. The 45 forward edge of the plate 32 is formed with a re duced extension or lip 35 which engages or hooks beneath a corresponding ?ange or shoulder 36 on the jamb of the front frame 6. The space be tween the oven bottom plate 32 and the main bot- 50 tom 2 of the range constitutes a clean out space 31 to which access may be had through an opening 38 in the front frame. Bolts 39 extend ing downwardly through the ?ue securely fasten the p1ate>32 to the main bottom. 55 2 2,111,604 If the oven bottom or plate becomes cracked or otherwise damaged, as frequently happens, or should it become necessary to repair the ?ue, the oven bottom can readily be taken out after un screwing the nuts 40 from the bolts 39 and re moving the latter. The oven bottom plate can then be lifted up from its seat on the ledges 33 and the shoulder 34, it of course being necessary to tilt the oven bottom so that the lip 35 can be 10 disengaged from beneath the rearwardly extend ing ?ange or shoulder 36 on the front frame. It will of course be understood that closure members (not shown) will be provided for the 15 door openings 21 and 28. Having thus described my invention, What I claim is: 1. In a range, a body comprising a main bot tom, side walls and a rear Wall and a front frame enclosing said main bottom, an oven within said 20 side walls and front frame having side walls spaced from the ?rst mentioned side walls and supported by said main bottom, said front frame having an inwardly projecting ?ange and the rear wall having a shoulder, said side oven Walls hav ing ?anges, an oven bottom adapted to engage beneath said ?ange at its forward edge and to seat on said wall flanges and on said shoulder at its rear edge in spaced relation to the main bot tom, and detachable means carried by the main bottom and holding said oven bottom in its proper position. 2. In a range, a body comprising a main bot tom, side walls and a rear wall and a front frame, an oven within said side walls, and front frame and having side walls spaced from the ?rst men tioned side walls and supported by the main bot tom, and said oven walls having inwardly extend ing ?anges, said front frame having an inwardly projecting flange and the rear wall having a shoulder, an oven bottom adapted to engage be neath said ?ange at its forward edge and to rest on the inwardly extending ?anges of the side Walls of the oven, spacing it from the main bot tom, and detachable means carried by the main 20 bottom and holding said oven bottom in its proper position.
