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.

Worried about coming in contact with the insulation inside door.


Unless you have an oven with a production date pre 1970 then the answer is no.

There are heat resistant materials available which do not contain asbestos fibres . (Nomex being one of them)

If you are really concerned go buy a simple 3m dust mask and wear gloves

I am trying to replace my old slide in gas range (Magic Chef- model # 6498XTS with a new slide in gas range and am trying to find out if the new one will fit where the old stove was, here's my problem the...


The installation depths provided in the installation literature, are the minimum requirements for fitting the slide in range into place. You need to determine what the depth of your opening is where you intend to install the appliance. The depth shown on the installation instructions might be showing the overall depth of the appliance, including the oven door, which typically sticks out from the cabinet anywhere from 1-3 inches, depending on the brand, model, etc. The old Magic Chef might have only provided the needed depth for the oven body, and might not have included the front oven door projection, past the countertop, etc. Most cabinents are about 24 inches deep, so anything larger than that, will likely stick out into the room more, unless your cabinents are deeper than 24", you're looking at having the new slide in oven stick out past the front cabinet front/edge, by about 4 5/16". I'd make a cardboard template to the dimensions of the new oven and use that to see just what you're facing with the replacement oven. It could be possible that you've confused the depth with the width for the new oven, as I've not seen many ovens that are as large as 28" unless it was a Viking, or other really high end, professional style oven, etc. Check your installation dimensions again for the Maytag and make a cardboard template to confirm how much space will be needed. The good news is that you can remove the old Magic Chef, since it's not working, to allow you to make a more informed decision as to fit and clearances required for the new oven. Just be sure to disconnect the power to the range or unplug the power cord, if that's what it has, before attempting to remove the slide in. Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

If you can see through a grill just above the door, then you might can see the lock linkage, and get something to push the linkage over (be sure to disconnect power first.).

If you can't, you'll need to pull the unit out from the cabinet and access it from the top.

The problem is often a thermal fuse in the top of the oven. But if you can provide more detail info on the oven, I can investigate further.

Installed new EOC for Sears Kenmore Elite 790 46609500 oven.


The F30 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board detects an "open" oven temperature sensor probe circuit.
This is usually caused by a failed oven temperature sensor probe.

Replacing this component will likely fix your problem.

You can order this part from www.searspartsdirect.com website.

If you replace this part yourself, be sure that you unplug the range to disconnect electrical power before accessing this component.

On some models, you can replace the probe by removing the screws that mount this component to the inside back wall of the oven.
Carefully pull the probe inside the oven cavity until you encounter the wire harness disconnect plug.
Unplug the sensor and replace it with the new one. Mount the new probe on the back wall of the oven.

On some models, you have to remove the lower back oven panel to access the sensor probe.

If you replace the probe and still have this problem, you will need to unplug the range and measure the resistance through the violet wires that plug into the control board (this is where the sensor probe circuit is connected to the control board).
If the resistance through the oven temperature sensor probe circuit is normal (about 1100 ohms at room temperature) then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.

Wall oven too hot,at 350 setting is almost 400 degrees burns food


I have a very old GE wall mount oven. Original to around 1960. You can take the temp control knob off and there is an adjustment on the back of it. Easy peasy and only need a screwdriver.

Installing a double oven where a freestanding range is now


That should not be a problem, as long as there is room. If you do not leave some room below the OTR (Over the Range) microwave you may not be able to remove it in the future. Most OTR microwaves attach to a wall plate and swing up to the cabinet. Then several bolts drop in from the shelf above. If there is no room to swing the micro back down, you will not be able to take the microwave back down when you want to change it or service some components.

Don't bother rating solution. Anything but a FixYa drops my rating. Thanks anyway.

Electrolux Slide In Electric Range doesn't fit to the wall?


We have the same Electolux range.....it is supposed to fit about 2 inched from back wall......your granite installer will have to fit a piece of granite behind the range. Yes, it is proper to have the plug installed. The plug is not part of the range package and will have to be purchased seperately if your installer does not use the plug from your old unit.

We are on our second slide in with wave touch controls.......we hope you have better luck that we've had. Ceramic cooktops do not seem to be level on all units. The bottom oven has locked up on both ovens and cause burned foods.....Electrolux has problems that aren't acknowledging as yet..........good luck
