Unfortunately it doesn't run. I plugged it in once and it blew the circuit breaker.  I did some research and I think it from the 1930's.... but not sure.

If no one here can tell you how old it is you may want to ask our Facebook friends at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Antique-Appliances/135282059850116?sk=wall

Looks like the ranges I do, no refrigerators but the ranges. I have rebuilt 5 red O'Keefe & Merritt and 3 red Wedgewoods. 3 yellow ,2 blue .Most of them are White. I have a Wedgewood,white with a black top red handles and knobs. I need 1 piece to complete it and have had it for 14 years. May have to get one made. No one would ever release the date codes for any of them. And most who will tell you the age will charge you for it.
