some gas slide in style ovens have a draw in the bottom under
the oven door i wonder if you remove the door the oven would
"drop in" and a small amount of cabinet trim could match up the
note the drawer at the bottom looks like you could remove it
and have the stove recessed about 2 inches at the bottom.
i believe the reason they do not sell drop in gas ranges is
WARNING WARNING Will Robinson (robot voice off)
doesn't natural gas tend to gather in low lying areas... wouldn't
a drop in cabinet be a low lying area....?? this older design
might no longer be available because of the potential for faulty
valves & fittings leaking into a confined space...
the drop in style most likely has a pedestal that some of the weight is
distributed on. if you can lift the stove out of the spot slightly to take
a look you might get a better feel for what you need to do to get it to
work. measure the counter height to make sure the final height can be
achieved with standard products...
also if this is an apartment, sometime land lords will deduct the
from the rent. talk to them about this...i would think you could neatly cut
the bottom part of the cabinet down to accommodate a modern appliance.

On March 2, 2005, John B. died in a catastrophic gas explosion. The
devastation was so complete that it was impossible to tell precisely
what happened, but it seems to have been an alt.home.repair gone wrong.
There were an odd number of limbs recovered but no heads.
