How to Store Electric Stove in Self-Storage?

If you need to store your electric stove in a self-storage unit, it's important to do it properly to prevent any damage to your appliance. Whether you're moving or just need to put your stove away for a while, here are some steps to follow for storing your electric stove in a self-storage unit.

Step 1: Clean Your Stove

Before storing your electric stove, it's essential to give it a good cleaning. This will prevent any buildup of grime or mold while it's in storage.

Step 2: Measure Your Stove

Take the time to measure your electric stove to determine the right-sized storage unit. This will ensure you have the perfect fit and adequate space for other items.

Step 3: Remove the Power Cords

The cords are located at the back of your electric stove. Wrap the cord and secure it with tape. If your electric stove is fitted to use gas, it's best to get a professional to safely disconnect hoses, turn off the gas valve, and address the circuit board.

Step 4: Remove Shelves, Burners, and Dials

Remove any loose components, such as shelves, burners, and dials, and store them separately. This prevents them from getting lost or damaged.

Step 5: Secure the Oven Door

To ensure that the oven door remains closed, tape it with packing tape. This will prevent the door from opening and causing damage while in storage.

Step 6: Store Upright

When you're ready to place your electric stove in the self-storage unit, ensure it's stored upright. This will prevent any damage to the internal components.

Step 7: Cover Your Stove

After placing your electric stove in the storage unit, cover it with a blanket to protect it from dust and scratches. Use bungee cords or rope to keep the blanket in place.

By following these simple steps, you can store your electric stove safely in a self-storage unit without worrying about any damage to your appliance.
