Backsplash behind stove – Rebuilding is an exciting time when you plan and pick out the new appliances for your kitchen. Part of the remodeling is to get rid of old appliances, such as an old stove. Whether its gas or electricity, it’s important to carefully and safely disconnect the old stove and then use a hand truck to safely move or carry it out of the kitchen. The hand truck makes sure you can handle bulky and weight of the stove safely, to avoid stress or muscle strain.
Switch off the power to the stove at the main service panel. If the stove is a gas stove, turn the gas valve behind the stove to the off position. Disconnect the stove from the backsplash behind stove. If the stove is a gas stove, unplug and disconnect the gas line from the back of the stove to the gas supply line, using a wrench. Slide the stove out and away from the wall in a slow and gentle way to avoid bumping any nearby dishes or furniture.
Push the truck onto the back of the stove, and push the lower lift under the edge of the back of the stove. Wrap the backsplash behind stove strap around the stove and back to hand the truck and tie it down to secure the stove to the hand truck. Brace the bottom of the hand truck with your foot while leaning on the top of the truck to lift the stove off the ground. Let an assistant on the side of the stove opposite the hand truck carefully lift the stove when you lean the hand truck back.
