Wall oven stands?
« on: July 31, 2013, 09:18:07 PM »
was called out to work on a wall oven. the repair needed removing the oven from the wall to open the back. Now im not the strongest of the least bit to handle removing an oven from the wall to the floor with out any help. is there any kind of adjustable stand/table out there? what is everyone else doing?

thanks

Jason

I use my Black and Decker Workmate as too cheap to buy the other. Slide it on a carpet chunk carpet side down. Has 3 positions to elevate.

I use a plastic orange crate. I also use it on top of a stove to allow easy removal of a wall microwave, works well.

I use my oven dolly.  Makes all oven jobs easy and very professional looking.  Also can justify a higher price to service.  DON'T BE CHEAP!!  BETTER TO SPEND THE MONEY ON THE RIGHT TOOL THAN TO SPEND MONEY AND TIME IN THE HOSPITAL WITH A BAD BACK OR KNEES!!!

I also use the Alldolly. Once I get it set at the right height I have a board that fits on it to make a platform.Sure is a lifesaver when you work by yourself.

I have one in my a$e van and I love it. I'm constantly watching Ebay for used ones for my biz. I don't want to pay full price for one unless I have to.

I have a friend of mine who has the oven dolly.   I can use it if I need it, so I don't need to buy one.    Most time,  however,  I carry a series of 5 gallon buckets and milk crates,  along with 6 2X6's.     I can usually get the oven out,   twist it a little,  and get into the back to change the non resetable thermal fuse.    The dolly does do a nice job however,  and if I can get one reasonable I would probably buy one.

need to get one of those.

   I don't get many wall ovens and have only needed to remove one on a job.  One lady called me and asked if I would install her new Dacor for free if I took her old one.  Of course it was an upstairs kitchen and it was a double Dacor oven.  I called in two buddies to help and we got the old one out, new one in with little issue.   I paid each helper $30, put a $140 board in the oven and sold it for $1250 to a customer, so worth it in the end.
