Firstly, when installing a double oven, all electrical connections when installing a double oven must be severed, and if the double oven that you are installing is a double gas oven, then all gas circuits will need to be switched off by the gas engineer. Points that our Gas Cooker Installers engineers would like to propose when installing a double oven, is that the only piping that should be used when installing a a double oven is copper piping.
When installing a double oven, the cabinet space that the double oven or gas double oven that you are installing is going to be placed into, should have a solid bottom. If this is not the case when installing a double oven, braces will have to be installed underneath the oven that needs installing in order to make the space where the double oven is going to be fixed into strong enough to hold the double oven. Gas Cooker Installers state that the braces required when installing a double oven need to be able to hold at least 375 pounds; as this is the average weight for double ovens and double gas ovens. To put in place braces for installing a double oven, a 2-by-4 lumber is required and should be altered to the size of the cabinet for the double oven.
The next step in installing a double oven, is to remove the door from the double oven. Our engineer will do this by unbolting the screws that keep the door and oven attached. Depending on the type of door the double oven has, before installing it, the engineer may have to coerce the hinge locks to the unlocked point. When installing the double oven, after the doors have been detached, they engineer will then slide the double oven or double gas oven into the front of the cabinet.
When installing the double oven, as soon as the double oven is secured in its space, 3/32 inch holes should be drilled in the edge of the cabinet to the holes that will be used for the installation of the oven. When installing the double oven, the screws provided with the double oven can be placed through the mount holes which are placed on the side of the oven’s opening.
To finish installing a double oven, all connections must be made, both gas and electric, depending on the type of oven that is you are installing. To receive an electrical connection when installing a double oven, Gas Cooker Installers convey that the use of an individual property grounded branch circuit is needed, and is something that we always use. There must be no electrical power running when attaching the flexible conduit to the junction box when you are installing a double gas oven or double oven.
To conclude on installing a double oven, the mounting holes must then have the screws placed in them securely in order to fasten the oven to the cabinet, and any trimming for the double oven should be added.
