Please note this issue was lent to our library in a bound volume which could not be taken apart for scanning. An overhead book scanner was used, which produces very good quality scans, albeit with some slight page curling at the margins. The documents are clear and nice to read and the pictures are very good as well, however it's quite not up to the same image quality standard as a flatbed scanner.

Thumbnail Image of Download 1918 Westinghouse Range Owners Manual
This is the oldest owners manual for any major appliance we have found up to this point. Westinghouse very first range was in 1914, so this is very early in the line. I can only imagine what housewives had to cook on before this range. This is a fascinating look at early range history. Even the writing style is completely different than what you'd see today by far!

Most women would like to cook if it did not require standing
over a hot stove. Planning a meal is not hard and mixing
various ingredients into the promise of delicious dainties or
preparing a roast for the oven is rather fun . But to be held
in the kitchen or even in the house during the long hours of
watchfulness is a different matter. And it is right here that
the Westinghouse electric range steps in and lifts the burden.

When the food has been prepared it may be trusted to
this silent servant with perfect confidence. There is no possibility
of instructions being forgotten or misunderstood . At
a given time, (the time decided upon,) the clock will turn on
the current and the meal will begin to cook. Again when just
the correct temperature has been reached in the oven, the thermostat
will turn the current off again and when madam enters
the kitchen after an afternoon of leisure or pleasure the meal
is ready to serve.

She herself is prepared to enjoy the meal equally as well
as any member of the family , because she has not had to think
about it since early morning.

Because the Westinghouse range reduces the labors of cooking
to the minimum, requiring no watching nor constant regulation
of heat, because it produces better food , and because
it is more economical, it will be in the kitchen of every modern .
progressive woman who is anxious to keep her family happy
and in good health. and yet does not wish to become a fixture
in the kitchen with its consequent limitations.

Thumbnail Image of Download Hoover Dial-A-Matic Service Instructions
Hoover revolutionized the vacuum cleaner industry when they introduced the Dial-A-Matic in 1963, with it's entirely different "clean-air" upright design. This is a comprehensive service manual that covers all of the Dial-A-Matic models, both self-propelled and non self-propelled. Step-by-step service instructions take you through complete disassembly of the machine, as well as disassembling and servicing the motor. Hoover again changed the vacuum cleaner industry in 1969, when it introduced the Self-Propelled Dial-A-Matic. This service manual also covers disassembling and servicing the actual power-drive transmission, which was at some point deemed too complicated and time-consuming to service, and was generally replaced as a complete unit if it deemed troublesome. There are some wonderful exploded views of the machine, motor, and power drive unit.

Dial-A-Matic models include (non power-drive): 1100, 1110, 1118, 1120, 1130, 1136, 1140, 1149, 1151, 1157, U5007, U5007-001, U5015, U5017
