I am replacing a 30 Maytag wall oven with a 30 inch GE walloven. Problem is the cutout for the GE is is 1.25 inches smaller than the existing cutout (29 3/4 x 27 3/4) instead of (28 1/2 x 27 1/4). Question is can I get trim to surround to cover the gap, and are there any other problems with having this gap? GE 30 inch wall oven JTP70BMBB replacing Maytag CWE9030BCB

Re: Replacing a 30 inch wall oven -
A number of solutions for your problem a little smaller better then a little larger, iv seen depending on surrounding cabinetry, either wood fill strips, lexan(plastic) strip added as a filler. depending on what the installation guide recommends for opening , that is all that would be required what you fill if with will be a purely asthetic choice

You said, , 22 years ago you built the house you are currently living in.
The above oven/microwave oven was built in. You are interested in
replacing this unit with a new unit but it must be the same size. ? by the way i You would be happy with a double oven versus the
microwave/oven duo. You have measured across the front of the unit and
it only measures 26" across. Any assistance you could give us would be
I can help you! The front is 26 inches. And how high is it from the top to bottom? Also when I sell a wall oven I always send out the installer to check the hole or cutout size. Most of the time no wall oven fits with out at least one cut! Do you have any room to cut a little on all sides? What is your model number now. And what color do you want now?? I will send you some GE wall oven models and sizes so you can check your self if it will fit. usually they have to cut at least one side to fit it in the old hole!
