Used kitchen stoves are priced according to a number of factors, including but not limited to age, working condition and special features. Additional factors such as brand name and the seller’s interests also greatly influence how a used kitchen stove is priced.
Sellers on classified ad websites like Craigslist often wish to sell faster, so they price their units lower. Smart sellers compare the make and model of the used stove to other, similar kitchen stoves being sold in online auctions or in secondhand stores.
For instance, a secondhand Kenmore Electric range with a faulty electronic oven controller goes for $30 at Appliance Exchange, an online marketplace for used appliances. Alternatively, in February of 2015, a Whirlpool double oven still in the box from the same website costs $2000.
