I can only assume this is an RV you are talking about. No there should not be slack. I would start by finding the manual slide out mechanism. It will be a hand crank type or unit. Manually slide the kitchen unit out and then try to slide it back in with the button. That will either bring it all the way back in or you can see that the motor is bad or the limits are off.
The slides are designed to tip and drop when coming out so that when fully extended they will be flush with the floor. When coming back in the bottom will pull in first and cause the top to tilt out until the slide fully closes and the weight transfer back to balanced and the slide properly seals. When the slide is all the way out is it sealed all the way around? If it is then you do not need to adjust. There is alot of weight being balanced at two connecting points under the slide. If it does need to be adjusted you are better off taking it to someone who knows what they are doing.
Slide adjustment is not an easy task because there are a lot of issues to take into account. One small adjustment below could throw the entire slide further out of adjustment. There could also be structural issues where the floor or walls are weak and no amount of adjustment will help. You are better off spending the money to have a trained technician make the necessary adjustments and save yourself from a lot of frustration down the road.
Tools- philips scredriver, Torx screwdriver Disconnect from the mains. Open the oven door- use a screwdriver to lever the latch up if it's still locked. Unscrew the 2 screws that hold the oven in the carcass. Pull the oven out from the unit about 6" (you don't need to remove it). Undo the 2 torx screws on the top of the oven and push the top cover of the oven back to reveal the electrics. On the left hand side you'll see a black plate with a reddy brown actuator and a switch. Remove the black plate by taking out the 2 torx screws from the left hand side of the oven. Unclip the switch from the black plate and push it to one side (you don't need to disconnect the wires). Disconnect the reddy brown actuator wires (red on left, black on right although it doesn't actually matter). Remove the plate complete with actuator. Pull the front of the actuator up and slide out forwards, releasing the whole actuator. Don't lose the spring! The little piston at the front of the actuator should only be sticking out a few mm (about 3-4). If it's sticking out more, then it may be stuck. So... Seperate the 2 halves of the actuator by twisting the bayonet. The actuator half should have it's piston fully retracted, leaving a little flange sticking out. If it's not fully retracted, the actuator is toast and needs renewing. If it is fully retracted, pull out the 2 black parts and the plunger from the part you twisted off the actuator and make sure they are free and not sticking (this is what was wrong with mine). Reassemble the actuator and clip back into the black plate with the spring behind it. Reconnect the power cables. Install the switch. Install the sub-assembly in the oven. Replace the top cover of the oven. Slide oven back into the unit carcass. Done! Thanks
FIRSTLY DETACH WAND FROM UNIT AND SLIDE HOSE DOWN AS FAR AS IT GOES, SPRAY A LITTLE WD40 OVER WAND AND SLIDE HOSE UP AND DOWN, AS FOR THE CAP, TAKE A PAIR OF PLIARS, GRAB HOLD OF END OF CAP AND PULL CAP FULLY OUT OF THE HANDLE,AT THIS POINT CHECK THE SPRING OR REMOVE THE SPRING IF YOU PREFER AND PUSH THE CAP BACK INTO HANDLE AND THAT WILL DO IT FOR YOU.
