Kitchenaid KOCE500E Install


Not sure if this is the right place for this question.

I'm in the process of moving around my 220v junction box for my new oven, but the installation guide isn't terribly specific as to where I should install the junction box.

Is there enough space behind this unit to run the conduit when the unit is installed?

Thanks

There is a channel of sorts down the left and right sides of the rear of the oven where you can run the flexible metal conduit. Home Depot has a 360-degree image that you can spin around and see this. It's hard to tell how wide the space is. Not sure you could fit a 4" junction box there.



The other factor is how deep your cabinet is (some are deeper than 24"), and whether the wall is open behind it. The box could be recessed in the wall.

Re: Kitchenaid KOCE500E Install


I've noticed the channels across the top and along the sides. The side channels look to be about 3-4" and the top about 2-3". My junction box is recessed into the wall, but sits behind the section of the oven that is furthest back.



My concern is that the box will press against the back wall of my 24" cabinet and I won't be able to get the existing wire out of the junction box or fit the conduit back into it. I may relocate the junction box to the upper right of the oven cabinet for ease of install.



Thanks for your feedback.
