the following precautions:
1. Screw in the levelling legs under the range.
2. Remove the racks and other utensils from the oven, and from the lower drawer.
3. Use adhesive tape to firmly secure the door and the drawer to the side panels. Also attach the electric power cord in
the same manner.

scratches and dents.
