No braking or locking mechanism, so it's possible that machinery that sometimes gets lively, such as a clothes washer, could wander. But with a fairly heavy load these rollers require some effort to move, so in most situations I'd not expect lack of brakes to be a problem. Since the rollers create some space under the appliance it should be possible to come up with some simple, independent braking arrangement if experience shows it is needed.
The rollers are aluminum with hard plastic wheels. I don't know what kind of gas stove you might have but I'm guessing that if the stove doesn't melt a linoleum floor covering, it won't melt these appliance rollers. If it is a 30 inch or 36 inch stove, I'm guessing you would want to use two pair of rollers. I have one pair under a 24 inch under-counter refrigerator and they are perfect to roll it in and out, but the fridge weight seems to be maximum for using the rollers easily. Note: the rollers go back and forth, not side to side...in other words, no S curves. Good luck and best wishes.
Great product and cost effective. Will purchase another set or two, these work well would have preferred a multi directional roller but it’s great as is .
yes, better have someone help you!
We have been using these on our new floor and have had no problems at all. I love them!
Raised my refrigerator 1 3/16"
2,000 lb. load capacity for the pair.
Yes - that's what I use mine for- permanently under a freezer in the garage, so that it can be easily rolled away from the wall when necessary. The description on the box says they can be installed under refrigerators, freezers, dryers and other heavy appliances but "not for use with factory installed wheels or casters" which is obvious but they say it anyway. The maximum load rating is 2,000 lbs for the pair.
For a chest freezer, my instinct would be to get two pair and split the horizontal span with 4 rollers. Manufacaturer may say it's ok to use 2, though.
