Often, short sales are done on an "as-is" basis.  As such, your recourse is limited.  How is it that you bought a short sale without an inspection?  What does your contract say?

You need to speak with a real estate attorney about your specific issues.

home inspections on short-sales are generally for information purposes only. the seller has no money and the bank doesn't have any regard for your concerns. it's a take it or leave it proprosition

Not to jump on you when you are down, however, you are very blessed it is just the stove. Obviously, you can contact a RE attorney, but that would probably cost about the same as a great new stove. Many times, there is not even a stove there...Jim

It is apparent that you did not use a Buyer Agent for this transaction, or you would have received advice. Life is an on-going process, this will be a lesson to learn for future purchases.
You must have received a listing sheet and a Property Disclosure.  It was your decision not to do a home inspection too.  At this point, you bought the property "as is" since apparently its purchase was not contigent upon  any repairs.
In the future, please, try to use the services of a Buyer Agent, so your interests in the transaction are represented in a professional manner.  At this point, you can seek legal advice if you want to, although I do not know there is anything anybody can do, or you can chuck it to experience, I am sure you bought the property at a good price, enjoy it and make the most of it!!!

Since it was "left" at the property, there's not a whole lot you can do except contact a real estate attorney. Inspections are advisable on any home including new ones. If my clients opt not to have one, they have to sign a release that states this. Did you sign something like this with your agent or the listing agent? And warranty companies usually cover only items that have been properly maintained.

Not much you can do at this point I'm sorry to say! I would look on craigs list for a used stove and chalk this one as a lesson learned!

Why did you buy without a home inspection? Not much you can do now.

Did you waive the home inspection?  And if so, why?

If you had a contract that did not specify an inspection, then you are not likely to have any recourse.    Stoves are considered "personal property", not part of the house.

For your future purchase adventures, even when a property is purchased "as is", an inspection will help you know what you are getting into.
