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 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

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.

SOURCE: Maintop Filler Kit for GE slide-in range JSP42SNSS

Maintop Filler Kit for GE slide-in range JSP42SNSS was missing. I am not sure why your response to a simple question (in a form of a question/offer to sign up for Premium Assistance Plan) referred to a different model number for a gas kitchen range (mine is electric!).
I fixed it myself. I bought a piece of 2"x2" sheet metal angle, painted it black and attached it to the wall behind the range to close the gap.
No need to bother your "Elite Experts" and pay $19.99.

I am trying to replace my old slide in gas range (Magic Chef- model # 6498XTS with a new slide in gas range and am trying to find out if the new one will fit where the old stove was, here's my problem the...


The installation depths provided in the installation literature, are the minimum requirements for fitting the slide in range into place. You need to determine what the depth of your opening is where you intend to install the appliance. The depth shown on the installation instructions might be showing the overall depth of the appliance, including the oven door, which typically sticks out from the cabinet anywhere from 1-3 inches, depending on the brand, model, etc. The old Magic Chef might have only provided the needed depth for the oven body, and might not have included the front oven door projection, past the countertop, etc. Most cabinents are about 24 inches deep, so anything larger than that, will likely stick out into the room more, unless your cabinents are deeper than 24", you're looking at having the new slide in oven stick out past the front cabinet front/edge, by about 4 5/16". I'd make a cardboard template to the dimensions of the new oven and use that to see just what you're facing with the replacement oven. It could be possible that you've confused the depth with the width for the new oven, as I've not seen many ovens that are as large as 28" unless it was a Viking, or other really high end, professional style oven, etc. Check your installation dimensions again for the Maytag and make a cardboard template to confirm how much space will be needed. The good news is that you can remove the old Magic Chef, since it's not working, to allow you to make a more informed decision as to fit and clearances required for the new oven. Just be sure to disconnect the power to the range or unplug the power cord, if that's what it has, before attempting to remove the slide in. Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

GE Profile JGSP32GEV3BB slide in range - regulator went bad #WB19K5020


"GE makes garbage" that's what a lot of independent servicers says about brands they can't become authorized to work on because GE for instance has factory service. What makes the repairman think the regulator is bad? It is highly unlikely to be the case.
