Question about Kitchen Ranges
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.
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?

suspect your contractor didn't allow for the tiled floor. the range legs are usually adjustable up and down. have you checked this?

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

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.
