How high should the microwave be above the stove?

In our area the bottom of the cabinet that you are mounting it to needs to be a minimum of 66" from the floor. You should check around with someone in your area to see what local codes are for mounting your microwave. Most of the time this will put the bottom of your microwave anywhere from 16" to 20" above your stove. See the following link for a listing of many types of appliances and their clearance needs.

Hello Mkoffice, this a very common problem when floors are installed in front of cabinets and not underthe cabinets. it also causes a problem for the dishwasher. it will become trapped or cant be installed.If you dont want to removed cabinets to install the tile. you will need to raise the cabinet height. my shop has run into this before. We add 1 inch tall strips of wood across the entire front edge of the cabinets. the same is done to the back wall and any area where two cabinets sides meet. we dont use full sheet of ply wood because the granite installers will need access into the top of the cabinets to level the counters. The wood type should match the cabinet.( at least in the front) it will have to be stained or painted.
Hope this helps

How close can our GE Spectra XL44 be to our cabinets? We want to put cabinets on either side, with zero clearance.

You need at least 1/8 inch on both sides of the range. If you do not have that you can have a fire and it will be next to imposable to slid in the opening with out it.

There is a regulator behind the bottom drawer remove the drawer.look in the back you will see a silver box that the oven fuel rail is on just below the rail there is a brass fitting that needs to be turned clockwise till it stops it can be hard to turn some times but turn it till there is no clearance between the nut part of the valve and the silver box then you can start your oven and it should work fine you can also adjust it to get a little more flame if needed.

What space is required behind range to allow for gas hook up

If you follow the installation directions for this range, you should be able to have zero clearance from the wall IF the electric outlet and gas shut off valves are located in the proper places. The gas valve should not protrude more than 2" from the back wall in order to have the stove sit flush against the back wall, when pushed all the way in.

Here's a copy of the installation instructions from Jenn-Air for your stove. Please see page 10 for their recommended location of the electric outlet and gas supply line and shut off valve

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

How do you install an over the range micro-wave, i can't seem to figure out how to insert the micro wave onto the bracket on the wall.I'm having trouble with the clearance from the cabinets above .

Use the template that came with the microwave to insure proper height of the wall bracket. If height is correct and you have drilled the three holes in the top cabinet, (one for power cord two for mounting bolts), the unit must be tipped forward (front lower than back) so the bottom can be hooked to the wall bracket. Once hooked, start the power cord throught he hole into the upper cabinet and the unit can be tilted upward to allow you to start the bolts that support the front of the unit. It is nice to have help with the weight of the microwave. If attempting alone, make sure that everything is within reach when you start and if possible pull the range and move it aside. Good luck.

Oven clearences

if the plans state 5" clearance thats what it is.the repercussion is the oven needs to "breathe" and it causes no fire hazards to cabinets for example.there is also fireproof material available to disperse the heat that can be placed between oven sides and cabinets.go to home depot or lowes and ask a salesperson,he can help you further.
