Even if you find something asinine, it doens't equal lying. They are completely different things. Look it up in the dictionary.
Again, how dumb are you? The metal backing of the oven directly behind the oven cavity is going to be the hottest. It's way hotter than the upper 4" or so where the electronics and display are located because there are no heating elements there. In fact there is usually a fan that helps keep that section cool.
Now under what novel physics theory does the metal behind that upper electronics section radiate the same heat as the hotter metal area directly behind the oven?
Once again, I didn't make anything up. And one more time, I'm not the first person in this thread to bring up temperature as a possible reason for the manufacurer specifying that the electric box be either 5" min below the bottom of the oven, or else up in the top 4", ie behind the cooler electronics section. And yeah, I referenced the part in the install manual where they talk about the insulation and temperature issue in the wires coming from the oven.
Here's a simple question for you. What's the max temp rating for Romex today? And is it so high that it's not within the range of what might temp the area directly behind an oven might get to? What was the max temp rating of wire used to connect ovens 50 years ago, that someone could still be using with a new oven today? I say it's entirely possible that the above considerations were responsible for the box mounting locations. Do I know for sure? No and I never said I did.
You of course have no alternate possible explanation, after I quickly smashed the idiotic "interference" proposal. Interference? When they say it has to be 5" min below the bottom of the oven? If it's even 1/32" below the oven there can be no interference.
