Which model do I have?

If you are not sure which model you have, don't worry you are not alone, have a look through the information below and if you are still in doubt send us a couple of photos of your Aga and we will help.

To all you Rayburn folk, if you seem to have a mystery model, we are currently working on a similar page for you but, in the meantime, you too can also send us a couple of photos of your Rayburn and we will help you identify the model.

Aga Patent - 1929

Whilst these really belong in a museum now, although they are rare, there are still some out there working but do not be tempted to buy one as there are no available spare parts for them. We had to include them here as it seemed rude not to.

Aga 47/10 (2 oven) or Model 82 (4 oven) 1936-1941

Aga 47/10 (2 oven) or Model 82 (4 oven)

So called as it cost £47/10 shillings - that's £47.50 nowadays when sold. This model was made before 1941 and we cannot supply ANY parts for it at all. Yes some are still working but really 80 years later I wouldn't suggest buying or working on one! Its distinguished from its younger relatives by the "funny shaped" ash pit door, often a cranked cast iron chimney (called an elephants foot) and the big grill in the door.

Only made to burn smokeless fuel
a 4 oven version was made - called the "82" I will leave you to guess why! 

Once again DO NOT BUY! Insufficient numbers left after nearly 80 years make this an uneconomical model to make parts for.

Agathermic - 1958-1967


The Agathermic. This smaller version than the usual Standard or Deluxe was made from 1958 and dropped around 1972 when Aga bought out Rayburn. It was too similar to the Rayburn Royal so would have diluted sales. No parts are available and we don't recommend installing. Oil and solid fuel version were made. Easily recognised as it is the only Aga with square lids.


Easily defined by its SQUARE LIDS.
Small size – modern Agas are all over 26” deep and more than 38” wide

Note. Right hand flue box. Sold to burn oil or solid fuel.

Aga STANDARD 2 or 4 Oven. 1941 - 1972


Made 1941- 1972 Model C, CB (cooker boiler) and 4 oven model E.
The Aga Standard. So called as the foundries around the world "standardised" the cooker into one model making manufacturing simpler. Made from 1941 to 1973 ONLY to burn smokeless fuel. Any other fuel used means the cooker has had a conversion - not made by Aga - so "unapproved". These models - made as a 4 oven as well - have a loyal following and we can supply every part EXCEPT the mercury thermostat - illegal now. Also after market oil and gas conversions are still made NEW with approvals.

It's defined by: 
Simmer plate is bigger than the boiling plate -with no cast ring around it, only a cord to fill the gap
The AGA name is embossed into the front. The black top is flat. The domes were CREAM cast iron on 2 oven models, Chrome on 4 oven versions, 
The ash pit door has "keep tightly closed" embossed on it - and a lift off grill below conceals the secondary air inlet tube hole. 
The flue box is shiny black enamel

Aga Deluxe Pre 74 -  1956 to 1974.


Aga Deluxe Pre 1974. This cooker was made from about 1953-1973 and was called the Deluxe. Performance was identical to the Standard but cosmetic changes made it a "new" model. It was initially sold only for smokeless fuel but oil and gas versions were introduced in 1960/70s. Coloured enamel front cream, white, sky blue – later brown, black, red, dark blue, green

The differences that define it, compared to the Standard are: 
Three (or 5 doors) on the front are a similar size. If solid fuel, it has an inner door behind the outer leading to the ash pit area. 
Chrome domes on all models. A raised shelf about 6" wide is all along the top, behind the domes.
Both hot plates have an expansion ring around them. 
The AGA name plate is a badge - not embossed into the cast iron front.
The cast iron flue box is covered by a "shroud" which can be lifted off. Gas versions have a gas diffuser.
The thermometer is tight up under the black top with no enamelled front above it.

Aga Deluxe Post 74 -  1974 to 1995 

Slightly different to earlier version of the Deluxe you can tell the age by: 
The black top has a small upstand across the back approx 2" high but less than 1" wide - not a shelf you can put small pans on.
The thermometer has a clear 1" gap above it showing the enamelled front plate.
The chrome domes have smaller hinges and have lower chrome section than the earlier model.

Oil, Gas and Solid fuel in 2 or 4 oven versions. Optional bolt on badges.
Colours – all of earlier ones plus pewter, claret, pink, British Racing Green, 3 blues, etc.
The 4 oven version has separate section, with own towel rail and joint strip between sections.

Post 1995 Deluxe

These were nearly always made for oil or gas but later electric. The post 95 models differ by having spring assisted domes that make lifting and lowering less difficult. Otherwise they appear identical to the post 74 models
