messageAnyone know anything about ovens??
Posted by philt74 September 15, 03:28PM

Hi everyone,

So our electric oven broke over the weekend. It's a built-in under the counter single oven with a gas hob built into the counter above it. We want to replace it with a built-in double oven. There's some that will fit based on the existing dimensions so that's good. Question is though... do we need to worry about the gas hob above it or do ovens generally have enough space to accommodate the hob?

Anybody know??

Thanks in advance,
Phil

usually just slot a new oven in (otherwise how could the original oven have been fitted under the hob in the first place).

Just wasnít sure if any additional clearance was needed at the top of the oven. Seems not.

I know that even if a kitchen seems 'oven ready'....it may actually require some adjustment, but only in a 'specific and limited' way.....

Doesnít an oven (well, many of them) have a requirement for a specific type of socket behind the oven. Itís not just a case of a 13amp plug and fuse in many cases.

Itís why Iíve been putting my replacement on the long finger for years

Some ovens use a standard 13amp socket, some are hardwired into (I think 30amp) a higher capacity circuit. It will say on the spec of the oven. If it comes with a cord and a plug it will use a 13 amp socket. Happy to be corrected but that's my memory of when I replaced mine. It won't need any specific clearance above betwen the hob, they are all insulated.
