can anyone tell me if there is any difference between a built in gas oven and a built under one ?

ie can I buy a built under on and fit it into the space I have in my cabinette for my existing oven, if the sizes measure up the same ?

Any advice appreciated.:eek:

If I follow you correctly, you want to install a unit designed for under a built-in stove, but you won't have a stove over it. It's possible that the top of the "under" unit is not heat shielded very much, assuming that the metal bottom of the stovetop will take the heat.

The appliance mfg will specify what can be above, below, and on the sides. You need to check the specs for the individual unit you are interested in. Unless it it clear from the specs that you can have wood or air above it, don't assume it will work.

I assume there is some reason you don't simply want to buy the proper unit for the installation?

Hey! how 'ya like the snow. Almost makes me glad I'm in the frozen-but-snowless Northwoods of Maine. Send us some! The snowmobile trails are a bit threadbare.

Cheers!
