It's an old stove. Do you mean one of the door handles on the front doors broke? Can you post a picture of the part that is broken?

If it's the door handle, remove the other good one for a template, then take the parts to a good welder and have them repair or make a new one.

Yup, we had a posting exactly like this a couple of years back. It shouldn't cost too much to have the old handle welded up to the interior latch pieces. If you can bring the other side's handle along with it, that can serve as a template for the repair.

This is not the picture of our insert it is one that I found that's like ours...the part that is broken is not the door handle it is the little black knob at the end of the first row of vents at the top..it opens the damper...
