Painting - Pull out Electric Stove ??

Posted by qmarker (My Page) on

I never had an electric stove in my life but recently I bought a condo and now I have an electric stove.

I am planning to paint my kitchen and my question is simply this. Can I just pull the electric range away from the wall to paint behind it? Is there anything special I need to be aware of other than the length of the cord?

Thank you

Pull out the bottom drawer and look at the back legs to see if there's an anti-tip bracket mounted into the floor. If so, just be aware of it for when you need to slide the range back in.

Enjoy painting - better you than me!

Your stove is probably plugged in and you may be able to reach it to unplug it with that bottom drawer removed. In any case, it is probably long enough to allow the stove to be pulled away far enough to paint or to reach the plug from the back depending how far you wish to slide it.
