Oven Install and Replacement- Dacor $400
Hey friends, I could really use some help and advice on a home project.
I am replacing a single Dacor oven (ECS130SCH) with a NEW Single Dacor oven (D0130S). The first one died and is costing too much to fix.
The installer wanted $400 to swap them out. He charged $75 for a presite and told me the new one is 1/4" to tall and he can't do it. Hire a carpenter or buy a different brand.
I want to make it match so I am stuck on Dacor and I think I figured and easy way of moving the microwave up 1/4" and the cutting a 1/4" more to fit the oven.
Can someone look at my plans and see if they looks feasible?
1. I plan to lift the microwave 1/4" by inserting 1/4" plywood panel under the frame and reinstalling the outer aluminum panel. That will leave room for the new oven.
2. Width cutout is the exact same. But I plan to remove 1/4" of the wood for the top cutout with an electric saw carefully.
3. Insert new oven into new existing cutout and walah…save $400
What do you guys think?
This is the setup that I now have: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...3/IMG_4273.jpg
I need to move the microwave up 1/4" to have room for the new oven control panel that will be 1/4" higher: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...3/IMG_4274.jpg
So I will lift the microwave with 1/4" plywood and reinstall frame around it: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...oventocopy.jpg
THAN cut out 1/4" of the top of the existing woven wood cabinet cutout. Here is my existing oven cutout requirements:
AND here are my new requirements. Only thing that has changed is the increase in height requirement for cutout and overall: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...annigguide.jpg and
SO, is this feasible or am I going to create a mess for myself?
one thing about installations-you never know till you start..i looked on Dacor's site; old oven had cutout req of 27-1/2---new one calls for 27-5/8. that's only 1/8. i would think you could plane down top and bottom of cutout. before i did that though; i would measure everything on site. maybe the original cutout ran proud of spec's or new oven is not 'really'-'exactly' what they claim.[hard to believe but it happens].
