Double Oven/Wall Oven support


Have a 3/4" plywood sides/back double oven cabinet that matches all the other cabinets I have. There is also a drawer on the bottom of the unit.

Never having installed anything like this – I went to put the oven directly on the shelf that is currently in the unit – let’s just say I’m lucky that it didn’t break it and come crashing down… was able to get it out before any major damage happened.

My question is – what can I do to support the oven? Will ” plywood sides be enough to support a shelf to hold 275+ lbs? Not sure exactly what to do here… have searched and can’t really find anything on how to approach this. I think my issue is that I didn’t build my cabinet and now that it’s already installed – I don’t have access to the sides and back to build a support.

Any guidance is appreciated – open to any/all suggestions.

Pictures will help---adding a properly built shelf might be needed---3/4" ply sided will support the typical oven

I never saw a 275 pound one--that must be made of brick---

Thanks... I will get some photos posted this evening.

I was thinking 2x6's on the sides/back wall - screwed in and then also put supports under the 2x6 that would rest on top of the original shelf(the supports would run the entire length of the 2x6 from front to back).

I also think i can hit 2 studs in the back wall for added stability.

From there - place 2X4's on the top of the 2X6s and call it a day.

As for the weight - I looked it up on the web and it says its 240lbs (fridigidaire gallary 27" oven - Model: FGET2765KF ) ... Possibly thats with packaging an everything - that said - I still need to account for the additional weight of thanksgiving dinner!

Would hate to get it in and have stability issues when trying to cook.

you support these with a 2X4 cleat under the shelf. And a 2X4 stacked at the back of the cabinet that continues to the floor at each end along the back side.
