I have a question about wall ovens. I had to check a line out from the panel up to the in a wall oven. I pulled the wall oven out(2 year old GE). There was a bad splice in the 1900 box. What the electrician had done was he coiled the slack of the Romex up and left it on top of the stove alomg with the splice box. No way should the Building wire be on the stove, right? I would think the stoves are double walled, but I am going to re-do the splice and keep everythin off the top, and put it behind the oven, right?

This seems to be a pretty common installation. I usually put a j box in the cabinet above the oven and feed the flex up to it. It can be tough to fit a box and flex and romex in the oven space.

We had to retro a double electric oven into an existing space at the FD. The 1900 was located in the cabinet adjacent to the oven enclosure. We ran flex from the oven down into the j-box.

Running lines on jobs is pretty much the same - making sure there's room in the enclosure for associated fittings (gas and/or electric) is always a concern when reviewing prints.

BTW Make sure to check the ventilation specs... we've gone through 4 or 5 control fuses, because the "neatnik" shift before us insists on turning on the self-cleaner late at night. When we come in, the oven is dead. The only thing we can think of is inadequate venting, since the new oven was placed into an old enclosure, and for an oven without a self-cleaner.

(never fails - it's on a weekend or holiday when we're planning on making breakfast! :rolleyes [Linked Image]

Scott,

A standard 4" square box. I think 1900 is a Raco part number.

Thanks for the input. I had called GE, and they had told me that UL gives a temp. rating for the sides, but not the top of the oven, because it does get hot. I'm gonna re-do the junction box and get the romex off the top of the oven.
