Slide-in Gas Range, legs or no legs?

Hi there:

I saw you responded to a similar post a few months ago, so maybe you could help. I have a new slide-in range that is .5 inches too high for the granite countertop with the legs at their lowest position. Is it safe to take the legs off in terms of proper venting to make the slide-in fit? I have heard conflicting answers from Home Depot and GE, so I thought I would get a third opinion. Thanks.

SOURCE: Can't Get My GE Profile XL44 Self-Cleaning Gas Range to CLEAN ! ! ! ! !

I also have a XL44 (GE JGBP90) and I can't figure out how to latch the door. When I press Self Clean, the display asks me to latch the door, but I don't see a lever. I think it might involve lifting the range, but I don't want to force it. Any ideas?

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

We have the same Electolux 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

SOURCE: Is there suppose to be a gap of 1/8

Ranges have a built in safety factor when the cooktops were designed so that the perimeter of the stove stays warm at best when using. The granite is very thermally stable and will not have an issue here. But the oven area needs a little air space from your cabinet/wood surface.

I have a 1976 Gaffers & Sattlers slide in range I want to replace. Any idea how to remove it? Thanks

this taken from ehow site:
Slide-in ranges and freestanding ranges use the same installation techniques, with one minor difference: the slide-in range rests on the edge of your counter top. Removing a slide-in range is not difficult but will require a friend to assist. Removing the storage drawer from the slide-in range first will give you access to the power cord and gas shut-off valve, if your unit uses gas
    • 1 Pull the bottom storage drawer out as far as it will slide. Lift up the front of the drawer and unhook the back of the drawer from the drawer guide. Pull the drawer away from the range.
    • 2 Reach under the slide-in range and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Turn the gas valve to the off position on the house line coming from the wall.
  • 3 Lift the top of the slide-in range with the assistance of your helper, and pull the range forward enough that you can access the back of the range.
  • 4 Go behind the range and locate the connection between the house gas line and the range gas line. Disconnect the flexible gas line from the house gas line with a pair of channel lock pliers or a pipe wrench.
  • 5 Lift up on the rear of the slide-in range while your partner lifts the front. Slide the range out of the cabinet opening and out of the house. Lifting the unit will prevent unnecessary damage to your counter tops.

    Is my oven worth fixing?

    Seven years is not a long time for a quality oven and replacements aren't cheap so the big question is do you have deep pockets and are you looking for an excuse to make a change?

    The thermostat will need replacing and maybe the fan motor, maybe a circuit board.

    I suggest you look through your local classified directory and make a few phone calls asking about the price of fixing things vs. replacing them.
    Lots of people would opt for replacement because the downside of a repair is other things could go wrong over the next few years costing more money while a new replacement could have a warranty period of up to five years.

    I changed the blade on my 10" Bosch miter saw this morning. First time and it was a bit challenging to release the screw when the blade was freely moving. Maybe there would have been a way to freeze...

    see my other post. Also there is a locking mechanism to stop the blade rotation when removing it. It should be around the gearcase on the back side of the tool away from the blade.

    How do you level the stove top

    The bottom front of the range has two little legs with hex bottoms. Lift or tilt back the range until you're able to slide a shim (I used a metal ruler) under one of the little legs. Then, unscrew the other leg until it meets the ground. Remove the shim and unscrew the remaining leg until it meets the ground. Check for level and repeat until you get it right. I just did this just 5 minutes ago and if I can do it anyone can.

    Brand new miter saw/ran for 10 hours power was not consistent, then nothing

    What part of the motor has blown? There is the armature and field coil and they won't always need replacing at the same time. There are brushes as-well, but as they are quite cheap I'm guessing you have been quoted on one or both of the motor parts to be replaced. Have you asked the repair guys for a report. They should be able to suggest a reason for what has blown and why by looking at the faulty parts. Although most manufacturers and service agents have discretion over warranty claims, if your machine is more than a few months over htere is almost definately noting you can do on the warranty side of things.

    If the top units and oven only get barely warm you have a loose connection on one leg of the 240 volt maybe where the line enters range.
