My house is about 20 years old.
We now have a drop in stove and wife wants a new one.
New one is a Whrilpool WDE350LV
The opening now on my granet counter top is 29 5/8
The Stove product dimensions sheets says the cabinet opening demensions must
The top of the new stove is 30 3/4"
The bottom D of the stove reads 29 7/8"
Have I got to cut the granet top bigger?
sounds like a job I don't need to do.
I need some advice on this
here is the dimension file
If you don't have to order it you could buy it, bring it home and
see. If it won't fit take it back. Might just be one or two spots
that keep it from fitting and maybe you can modify it. Course that
will void the warranty.
I have a drop in range by Whirlpool as well. I had the counter-top
done at the same time as the installation of the range so I could have
the opening made to specs. If I recall correctly, there was a little
play in the dimensions. Not much, but some. If it were me, I would
order the range and measure the actual dimensions of the range once it
arrived. You MIGHT be able to fit it in. If not, hire someone to open
it up. It is not a job for someone without the correct tools and
knowledge, such as controlling the dust.
In all the similar appliances I've looked at there have been
excellent spec drawings that show all the dimensions,
required clearances, etc, available online. From those
plus measuring what you have you should be able to
figure it out. Don't see how any of us are gonna figure it
out for you any better.
If it requires cutting the granite, just call some locals and
get a price. No big deal.
Read Jimmie's post and think about it. This is a job for a pro. He has
all of the equipment, he has done it before, he will do any necessary
clean up , and if he breaks it, he buys it.
Don't modify the cook top. Either cut the granite or buy a different
