The Inspection Of The Kitchen Stove

Assuming it's an electric oven, begin by turning all of the burners on and to the highest setting. Within the oven switch on the "bake" element. Let all elements continue to be on until cherry red. As soon as the bake element has become cherry red switch the control to the "broil" element (leave the stovetop burners on). Now, if the stove has not been replaced from the original installation there ought to be no issue with the size of the circuit. In case it has been replaced you may blow the fuse or circuit breaker as a result of the increased load. This is the main reason for running all things at the same time. It is not uncommon for an older home to have a 40 amp circuit for the stove although several brand new stoves require a 50 amp circuit. This presents quite a problem for the Buyer given that you would have to either pull new wire from the panel or switch out the stove with a smaller unit. Either is not cheap.

The Inspection Of The Kitchen Stove

  1. 1. tips on how to inspect In reviewing ovens, we will be discussing ranges, ovens, or cooktops, depending on your local choice of words. It might seem pretty straight forward initially, but there is certainly a way to completing this evaluation thoroughly. The very first thing I do when I start is remove everything from within or on top of the stove so as not to melt anything while running the unit. I also assume that it is Thanksgiving Day, in other words all of the burners or elements are on all at once. This is the most effective strategy because eventually everything will be on at some point in the future. Assuming it's an electric stove, begin by switching all of the burners on and to the highest possible setting. Inside the oven turn on the "bake" element. Let all elements remain on until cherry red. As soon as the bake element has become cherry red switch the control to the "broil" element (leave the stovetop burners on). Now, if the stove has not been replaced from the original installation there should be no problem with the size of the circuit. If it has been switched out you may blow the fuse or circuit breaker due to the increased load. This is the reason for operating all things at once. It is not uncommon for a more outdated house to have a 40 amp circuit for the stove while many brand new stoves require a 50 amp circuit. This presents quite a complication for the Buyer since you would have to either pull new wire from the panel or replace the stove with a smaller unit. Either is not cheap. Gas ranges are much easier, just light all of the burners, one at a time and turn the range on in both the bake and broil modes to ensure they fire and you will be done with that portion of the home inspection. http://www.itookthistoday.com/protect-all-your-bases-with-the-knowledge-of-ahome-inspection/ Many individuals purchasing brand-new homes get a false feeling of security anytime it relates to the complete and correct construction of that house. It has been my experience after many years of inspecting both new and also resale properties that a large number of folks simply just get an inspection on a resale or used home. The reasoning is this; the home was designed by somebody (architect), the town, city, or county examined the layouts, a licensed contractor built it, and the Municipal Building Official inspected it therefore exactly why would I need to get it inspected? Well, here is the issue; many parts of the country do not require plans or plan reviews. Many more parts of the country do not require contractors to be licensed. Finally, many areas, especially rural areas, do not have any type of Building Inspection at all! I reside in the Phoenix area in a home which was built for me by a large national builder whose name you would recognize assuming that I revealed it, however I won't. Throughout the course of 11 months of construction they essentially built the house approximately 2 1/2 times. They mounted several things incorrectly, removed them and reinstalled them the right way, sometimes after two attempts. I am not talking about minor matters; items such as plumbing and electrical within the concrete slab, re-installing all 33 windows, installing insulation 3 times, and then the biggie ... installing the drywall two times.
  2. 2. About 18 months after moving in I contacted the builder and asked if they realized that I had not called ever since I moved in. They said yes, that I had not called since moving into our new home. I then asked exactly how many times my neighbors had called in that very same 18 month duration. The answer was approximately 8 times on average. The moral of the story is, keep an eye on them when they are constructing it, have it inspected and you will have a virtually problemfree home as soon as you move in!
