Stove Safety

Home Inspector with ALP Inspections LLC

According to the court-approved agreement, Sears will notify nearly 4 million customers who may have bought stoves between July 2000 and September 2007 that they either can get anti-tip safety brackets installed for free or receive gift cards or reimbursements of up to $100 to qualifying customers.

I write this up all the time. I am amazed that the installers just don't follow the installation instructions. Many times on inspections, I will find the bracket still in its original packaging in a kitchen drawer. I hope that all the people affected opt for the free installation. A gift card won't save anyone from being hurt when the stove tips over. Anatol

Here in earthquake territory, I rarely find the anti-tip device missing, even though one has little to do with the other. Everyone seems to be rather conscientious about installing it, even homeowners doing the installation themselves.
