Question about Electrolux 30" Self-Cleaning Slide-In Double Oven Electric Convection Range - White

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

I bought the slide in range and it is away from the wall about 2 inches. I am having granite installed soon and need to know if the range is supposed to be flush with the wall or is it suppored to be out from the wall.
Do I need to have the granite cut to go behind the stove? It doesn't look right. Our installer put a plug on the stove. Do we need to cut a hole in the wall and take out the plug and hard wire the unit into the electricity. Elaine

    Thanks for your help. Your nswer is exactly what we did to install the range. It is lovely and I have a small 30 inch piece of Granite behind the stove. Your answer was appropriate, but I just got the answer today, Nov 19, my question was posted in July. The answers should come faster if they are to be useful. Thanks again. Elaine

    Our freestanding electric electrolux range won't unlock. Our babysitter tried to start a cleaning cycle, when I came home it wouldn't unlock.

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

The range will be set out about 2 inches from the wall when properly installed. Don't change your plug-in, or cut holes in your wall. A quick search on the web will show you some options for "rear filler kits", if that is what you want. But the most attractive solution is to have a 30-inch piece of matching granite installed at the rear gap. A very narrow, nearly invisible grout-line will join the other sections of granite to the filler section. A custom continuous cut-out may result in a weak spot, subject to cracking or checking due to impact or hot-cold expansion-contraction. You bought the right range, you're getting the right counter-top....don't mess it up by sliding your range back to the

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.

    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

    Installed today and there is a four inch gap between wall and back of range! How do I get to be flush with back wall? Counter depth 24 inches with 1/4 granite over hang.

    Have your granite contractor cut a "stove strip" to fill the space.  Completely normal.

    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.

    Is there suppose to be a gap of 1/8" - 1/4" between the lip of the range and a granite countertop?

    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.

    Remove the oven racks.
    Remove 2 screws holding the element to the back wall.

    Reattach the element to the back wall.
