When installing a built in oven, our Gas Cooker Installers specialists state that the one thing that must remembered when installing a built in oven is to turn off all electrical and gas powers that are attached to the built in oven. Once this very important action is taken to ensure your safety, the installation of your built in oven can continue.
The next step to installing a built in oven is for the engineer to measure the depth, height and width of the space the built in oven is going to be installed into to make sure the built in oven or built in gas oven fits in simply. Ideally, our Gas Cooker Installers engineers recommend you take the appropriate measurements of the cabinet space before buying your built in oven that you will be installing in order to avoid any disappointment. Also you must remember when looking at the measurements of the cabinet space for the built in oven, to allow space at the back of the built in oven you are installing for the hot air from the built in oven you are installing to vent as to not let the built in oven you are installing over heat.
The next part you need to make sure of when having a built in oven installed is to have the electrical junction box near the cabinet space so it is in easy reach from the built in oven. Gas Cooker Installers engineers always check the manufacturer’s guide on the voltage and wiring requirements of the built in oven you are installing.
The engineer can then continue installing the built in oven by connecting the oven’s wiring to the junction box. However, this procedure varies according to the residency of the house and local safety codes for electrical wiring. However when wiring as part of installing a built in oven, usually the white, black, red and sometimes green leads simply connect to the circuit connector counterpart in the electrical junction box near the built in oven.
When installing a built in oven, the continuation from connecting the appropriate wiring to the oven being installed is to take the oven’s doors off. This can be done by sliding the oven’s door out of place by either unlocking it from the hinges or unscrewing the door and removing it. This is so when you are installing the built in oven or built in gas oven, it is lighter, thus easier to manoeuvre.
The engineer can then place the built in oven into its cabinet space and secure it with the screws provided into the mounting holes. If the built in oven being installed does not have any mounting holes however, the engineer will need to drill holes in the right places of the oven with the appropriate sized drill bit.
To finish installing the built in oven, all the trimmings that have been provided with the built in oven will need to be secured on. After the trimming of the built in oven is done, you can then secure the built in oven’s door into place.
