  2. Some stove have thermostats and be happy if yours does not, it took us a year to get our stove fixed as the part was no longer available..
  3. depends on your sove brands. WIth some high end brands you are better off asking Tio Sam to help you and recommend a repairman. Some thermostat are easy to come by and some are not..good luck try calling 765 5653 or 045331 281 21 63 Miguel if you have a Mabe type .

I got bruscellosis from eating cheese or yogurt in Ajijic as I do not drink milk
