TOPIC: Anti-tips not installed on slide in ranges

Re: Anti-tips not installed on slide in ranges 13 years 8 months ago #6097

If you tip it, the device will catch on the range.  The best way to check is to look behind and see if the bracket is bolted onto the wall.  You can also slide it out about an inch.  I would not slide it all the way out as sometimes they fit into a special slot and they can be a dickens getting it back in properly...

I open the oven door, put my foot on the door and hand on the back of the unit.  It will tip quite easily.  It should move about 2" to 3" and stop.  I also point out the OEM safety label located on the oven door and or frame.  CPSC and the OEM thinks its a safety issue, that's good enough for me.

Don't forget to remove loose contents from the cook top surface and oven interior prior to tilt test....

One time I turned on the oven and started talking, casually looking inside.  This family used the oven for cookie, cracker and cereal storage!  Yikes!  Quickly taking out the stuff, I tried to just as casually act like that was normal...

I have checked thereafter before I turn the oven on.  Lesson learned...
