Question about Kitchen Ranges
We need a new electric wall oven. Right now we have on that was probably installed above cabinets in the 1960s. Will it have asbestos, how do we find out without lots of expense and if so, how should we handle that
Not if you can access you main electrical panel. You should be able to turn off the 50 Amp Double Pole Breaker that provides power to the wall oven/ Note, sometimes it's a 40 or a 60 amp breaker depending on the age and requirements for the wall oven.
You should be able to turn off the breaker and safely remove the oven and disconnect the wiring connections once you pull the oven out of the opening. Be sure to fully tape each wire once you disconnect them from the oven to prevent an accidents - also, LEAVE THE BREAKER OFF until the new oven has been properly installed!
IF you aren't sure which breaker it is and really want to be ultra safe, you can shut off the main breaker, but you'll be without power until you've got the oven removed and have safely taped each conductor with SEVERAL wraps of electrical tape to prevent contact with the bare conductors.
Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

Yes it should have a trim because the gas stove does have a higher heat range and the heat will raise straight above the stove warmer and higher than electric. This heat could burn out capacitors, resistors, and more in your microwave if there is no trim.
