Protect Against Range Tipping

How you can do your PART to Protect Against Range Tipping

To download the recently updated Protect Against Range Tipping brochure, click here.

Did you know that improperly installed free-standing, slide-in and built-in kitchen ranges can tilt forward when someone applies too much pressure to an open oven door?  The result may be injuries from the tipped range or scalds and burns from hot food and liquids.

  • Make sure the proper anti-tip device is installed correctly. If you are remodeling your kitchen, buying a new range or building a new home, make sure the installer uses the anti-tip device provided by the manufacturer. Contact your range manufacturer, your appliance dealer or an authorized service provider for information and assistance.
  • Always keep the range door closed when not in use!
  • Never use the door as a step stool, seat or as a support for body weight or other objects.

Please be safety conscious when using a range and other appliances. Use them only for the tasks they are designed to do.

Consumers are urged to check whether an anti-tip device has been installed.  Look under the range to see if an anti-tip device is installed on the floor (possibly affixed to the rear leg of the range), or gently pull the back of the range to see if it pulls off the floor.  For your safety, you should not tilt the range more than 2 inches off the floor.

If you are a consumer seeking information or wish to obtain an anti-tip device, please find the brand of your range in the list below.  Please have the model and serial number available when calling the manufacturer.   The model and serial number can be found on the serial tag.

AHAM released a statement to the media on the importance of installing the anti-tip device that is provided with all ranges.  To read the statement click here.

Serial tags may be located by opening the drawer of your free-standing or slide in range. For drop in style units, look at the edge of the oven door.  The specific location will vary by model, but it can be found on the inside of the oven door.
