Whirlpool 28" drop-in stove replacement

I have a 28" Whirlpool drop-in stove that needs to be replaced. The problem is the opening between the cabinets is only 28 1/4 inches. I have not been able to find a replacement stove. There is enough cabinet wall to cut, but that seems to be a professionals job and not mine. Am I correct or is there a better solution? I tried runnng the model number on the internet, but I think the stove is to old (20 yrs). Help!!

SOURCE: re-ignition when cabinet below doors open/close

Seal all holes on the underside of cooktop. This is called the burner box. Seal all openings with aluminum tape. This should stop the back draft effect.

SOURCE: wall mounting needed for a top mount microwave/hood combination

Is there a wall behind where the microwave is to fit?

Most of these ship with a mounting plate and instructions for mounting to the wall. In fact, the wall bracket carries about 1/2 the weight, and the overhead cabinets carry the other half. The plates come with a good set of instructions for how to install.

Where can I find an electric range with depth less than 28 inches

Bertha, most stoves are going to be anywhere from 26" deep to 29" deep. Most any stove that I have used or worked on has never been a counter depth stove unless it was a slide in or a drop in stove. When I went to GE's website, I did not many stoves that were less than 28" deep until I got up to $1000 in retail pricing. The only one under that price that was less than 28" was also only 24" in width. Hope this helps!
