Elecrolux slide-in range install help


My granite countertop has front lip that sticks out 1 3/4 inches from the cabinet fronts. The granite lip on the front of the counter prevents slide-in range from sliding back as far as it should. Does the granite installer need to notch out granite lip on each side of the range opening in order for the range to slide back so the stop goes against the cabinet? Here are pictures of range and counter: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rick-19247/4495448055/

Elecrolux slide-in range install help


I am confused as to what is preventing the range from sliding right straight back into place. Is it hitting against the wood on the sides or against the granite? Did the old range fit in place or was this range in there before the granite was installed?

New cabinets - no old range. What keeps range from sliding in as far as it needs to go is the front triangular shaped section of the range sticks out about 5/8" on each side. The opening for the range is 30" but the opening for the lip part of the granite which overhangs the cabinet needs to be 31 1/2".

Here is a picture of another person's range installed. You can see that the front top side of the range hits lip of countertop. I want to notch my granite counter top sides in the lip section so that the opening is 31 1/2" on the lip section of the granite countertop and 30" opening for range for rest of the countertop. Is this a good idea? Suggestions....

It seems to be a simple problem. Measure the distance to the front of the stove that wraps the counter. Wrap some masking tape over each side. Slide the unit in place and trace the edge. Move the line in towards the stove inset, leaving 1/8" gap. Take a grinder and cut out the protrusion.

Yes, my thoughts. Thanks Ron. Hope the granite fabricator coming out tomorrow is on the same wavelength. I am a little concerned with possible damage to cabinet with grinding. He will have to cut back 1 3/4" depth of granite lip.
