How to Install a Cooker and Oven

Assuming you purchased a range (a cooker and oven combination unit) that uses the same fuel source as your old cooker and oven, installing the new appliance should be as easy as sliding in or dropping in the unit. You can also choose a freestanding range, but it’s the same as a slide-in model — only not surrounded by cabinets.

Before ordering these installations, you should ensure that:

  • Correct electrical supply and sockets are already in place within the range of the new appliance location.
  • If you’re ordering a new oven – check the fuel source and requirements, e.g., gas/electric.
  • Built-in and built-under are different – make sure you’ve ordered the right one.
  • Check (and double-check) the dimensions of your old model appliance and the aperture which the new model needs to fit.
  • Make sure that there is an isolator switch for ovens and cookers.
  • Changes to wiring, sockets, or any part of the electrical supply will incur an extra charge.
  • We can make minor adjustments to kitchen cupboards, but this will incur an extra charge.

How to Install

  • Electrically powered oven and cooker ranges use either a heavy cord that’s plugged into a dedicated 240-volt/50-amp circuit or a length of a flexible metal cable with individual wires inside, which is connected to an electrical box located behind the range.
  • Gas-fired slide-in ranges use a flexible gas line attached to the gas supply line’s shut-off valve, or gas cock, on one end, and the range’s gas connection on the other. Gas connections use flare nut fittings to attach the gas supply line to the main gas line. When installed properly, they provide the best seal for preventing gas leaks, and they can be taken apart easily if, for example, you need to move the range out to work on the area behind it.
  • Making a gas connection to an appliance isn’t difficult, but it must be done correctly to prevent a gas leak. Flare nut fittings are used on both ends of the flexible gas line. After the connections are made, check for leaks. If you detect a gas leak after testing and refitting the connection a couple of times, you may want to call a plumber to handle the hookup.
  • Both electric and gas cookers and oven usually have a clock and other cooking accessories that run on electrical power, but only 120 volts or a standard circuit are required. The cooker and oven have a standard 120-volt power cord plugged into a 120-volt receptacle located on the wall behind the range. An electric range needs two outlets behind it — a 240-volt for powering the cooking components and a 120-volt for the clock and timer(s).
  • A drop-in range cooker and oven requires a cutout cabinet and countertop area so that the range drops into the cabinet. This type of range often has a flange around the edge of the cooker surface. The flange rests on the countertop and supports the entire range. Then the range itself is screwed to the cabinet. The fuel-source hookups are the same for a drop-in oven as they are for a slide-in type.
