The only recommendation for clearance given by turbochef is there must be at least a 2 inch gap between the top of the oven and any shelf or work surface above it,
however experience tells me that you shoul have at least 4 - 6 inches of clearance all around to ensure sufficient coolin airflow if there is not sufficient airflow the oven will suffer from overheating with EC overtemp error messages being displayed, you should also bear in mind the requirement for clear access for the service technician should a problem arise

You must have to open it to check.
If it has two elements and both don't work then try to check the fuse using DMM.Also check the relay which drives the two elements that its making clicking noise or just use DMM to check the volatage at the relay.
Wire goes from relay to element has 120V ac

Oven doesn't seem to be heating to proper temperature. Both elements are hot to the touch when first turned on. Broiling element is red hot when on broil. Baking takes longer than what is reccomended on...


The issue can either be a bad electronic control/clock assembly or the oven temperature sensor (probe) has gone bad. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then 1100 then it is the sensor that is bad & if the rating is around 1100 then it is the board that is bad & should be replaced. Hope this helps...

Do you need electrician to install a neff oven.

From a legal standpoint, it depends on where you live. Some jurisdictions require that only licensed, insured tradespeople ,complete with permits and inspections, can do any electrical work. Others allow a homeowner to do basic "maintenance type" jobs themselves, such as changing light fixtures, switches, and even installing new appliances. If you have to install a new breaker, new branch wiring, receptacles etc., you will likely need the services of a professional. Another consideration is that if the installation causes a loss down the road, fire,or injury, your insurance carrier may abandon you! Your best bet is to call your local Inspection Authority, and most appliance vendors will reccomend good tradespeople in your area. I hope this is helpful, Rob.

How much clearance is required between the bottom of the built-in oven and the plywood floor of the cabinet

The installation manual does not specify.

(If you need a manual you can get one here:

As an installer, without a manufacturer's specification, I would assume no specific clearance is required. Further, if you check the exploded parts diagram in the manual you will note that there is an insulating panel in the base of the oven. Evidently the oven has been designed to insulate the exterior panel from excess heating and does not require any minimum clearance at the base.

Installation of lg over the range microwave oven

Installing an LG over-the-range microwave is an excellent way to save space in your kitchen. These types of microwaves are ideal for smaller kitchen areas. Although the retailer where you purchase your over-the-range microwave will likely offer installation service, rest assured that you can install the microwave on your own.

Electrial code

Ok after looking at the nfpa book what they require is the clearances to be set to what the manufacturer requires this will be listed in the instruction manual. And any gas needs to be installed with a flexible dormont style hose with a gas approved shut off device installed within 4 feet of the appliance.
