Elevation question : Wall oven junction box
 
Would I be correct to assume that I should put the j-box in the upper cabinet of the wall oven?

Otherwise I see no way to access the wiring if it's behind the oven. :eek:

The installation instructions normally show the JB locations. I have always mounted it behind the oven at the top.

Thanks. I thought I had looked, but I double checked again, and it doesn't have a R.I. location for the JB.

To clarify, you're mounting it in the cabinet above the oven so that the connection can be made after the oven is slid into place?

Most case it useally either at the top or bottom depending on which type of oven it used.

But if you have plenty room near the top of the oven then go that route otherwise go to the lower cabent for connections.

Merci,

Top cabinet = less 8-3 wire, so I will go that route. Thanks Marc, as always. :)

You can normally set the oven in the opening on the shelf and reach above the unit to wire it. If the JB is in the cabinet above you lose some cabinet space.

8-3 NM ? are you using the double oven format ? if that so that is correct but for single oven typically 10-3 useally take care of it unless you got the model number and the specs then go from there.

Yep, it is an oven/micro combo, requires 40A to operate.
