Frequently asked questions
Can stoves and ovens be scrapped?
Yes, most stoves and ovens contain scrap metals that can be recycled at a scrapyard. The scrap value tends to be quite low, because stoves and ovens often contain mostly ferrous metals that are not worth very much per pound. An old stove might be worth only a few dollars in scrap metal if unprocessed, but taking it apart yourself can yield more.
How long do stoves and ovens tend to last?
Most stoves and ovens today last up to 15 years, depending on the manufacturer’s quality, how frequently it’s used, and their maintenance. Generally, electric ovens last up to around 13 years whereas gas ovens tend to last up to 15 years. After 15 years, it’s seldom worth fixing an old stove or oven.
Is it worth it to fix an old stove or oven?
If the cost of fixing an old stove or oven is more than the cost of replacing it, then it makes sense to replace it instead. Otherwise, the choice is up to you whether or not to fix or replace your old stove or oven. Many believe that as a rule of thumb, if the cost of fixing your stove or oven is at least half of its original cost, then it’s no longer worth repairing.
What happens to old stoves and ovens?
Old stoves and ovens should be disposed of at a recycling facility rather than in a landfill. The scrap metal contained in stoves and ovens is scrapped, any electronic components removed, and the remainder is disposed of. Most new stoves and ovens are made of recycled steel and metals from old ones, so recycling old stoves and ovens is preferable to dumping.
