I don't know if I'll get a good answer, but our kitchen has a 27" drop-in
range made by GE probably in 1965. They still make a 27" drop-in that is
changed in design and features, but basically sounds like the same animal.
What are the chances that I can buy a new one and simply drop it in where
the existing range is without renovation? I've asked people who sell them,
and GE, and no definitive answer. We want a new stove, but don't really
want to make any but the most minor alterations to get one.
If you have the model number for the NEW range, goto the GE web
site and you should be able to find the full installation
instructions including the dimensions of the required cut-out,
clearances etc. I know they do publish most or all of those
Measure your existing cut-out etc. and you'll know to a
fairly high degree of confidence if the thing is going
to fit easily.
If the existing cut-out is too small, you may have to
enlarge it. If it's too large, there are conversion kits
for some GE cooktops that enable them to be mounted in
oversize cut-outs, so you might not be completely screwed.
