Antique Stove Virtual Service Call®   


The Old Appliance Club

P.O. Box 65

Ventura, California 93002



Antique Stove Virtual Service Call® a revolutionary new service created for vintage stove owners seeking technical assistance, has been created by Jack Santoro, antique stove restoration pioneer, author, historian and founder of 

The Old Appliance Club.


According to Santoro, the biggest problem associated with antique stove and appliance ownership has always been the lack of knowledgeable repair and parts services on a local level. Without these two basic ingredients, a malfunctioning older stove or appliance is almost certainly doomed. Santoro believes he has finally solved this dilemma for thousands of old stove owners.


“I am introducing what I feel is the most significant  “missing link” in the old stove and appliance field. I call it

  Antique Stove Virtual Service Call® high-tech solutions for low-tech equipment. 

By utilizing the new technology of a web cam, camcorder, or digital camera, plus Internet access, a professional “Virtual Service Call” on your old stove is possible no matter where you live on the planet. All we need is a clear description of the problem and to see the equipment. We can work with the consumer or, if they prefer, a local tech of their choice. It’s that simple.” 

– Jack Santoro


The process begins with the consumer detailing the problem they are experiencing by sending an e-mail query to: or by calling 805-643-3532. All services are flat-fee based to be cost effective. There is no charge for a preliminary evaluation. If no known solution is available the consumer will be notified.


For over three decades Santoro has dedicated his focus on developing unique antique stove services, products, How To manuals, and building the largest organization in the world for old appliance owners, The Old Appliance Club Santoro sees his cyber-restoration and repair concept to spread accommodating every style of antique appliance in the very near future.


Jack Santoro is the editor of The Old Road Home vintage appliance magazine and founder of The Old Appliance Club. He is commonly acknowledged as a leading antique stove expert in America. Since the early 70s Santoro has been interviewed over 800 times on the topic of major antique appliances in American kitchens. He has served as a consultant to PBS - The History Channel “The History of Household Wonders, various museums and historical institutions throughout North America, including the Smithsonian in Washington.
