Hi.
Im just installing a new Zanussi single oven in to a Wickes oven housing cabinet.
The oven fits nicely, but the door catches on the filler panel at the bottom of the cabinet.
The filler panel was attached when I built the cabinet, as per the instructions and now can't be removed.
I need to raise the oven slightly to allow the door to open without catching - there is room to do this, but how best to support the oven.
I was thinking maybe put some spare tiles beneath the base of the oven or something, then screw the oven in to place.
Advice please!

Tiles would be good but mostly a couple of off cut strips are used of the same material the oven would have sat on, laminated particle board, is all that is needed, these could be secured to the base in skid fashion fore and aft with countersunk screws.

I agree with using some melamine faced chip board. Built in ovens are designed to have cool outer walls to fit in MFC units and usually vent out the front. Aero's idea about forming two skids is useful for sliding the oven in, and out, should it need to have a repair in the future.

:withstupid:

150mm wide furniture board is cheap enough in Wickes, there are usually damaged pieces in the rack so you can money knocked off at the checkout.

It does not matter what material is used as it will not be seen.

If the 18mm thickness of melamine faced particle board is too much, then Wickes also do MDF sheets, or even hardboard, in small sizes - 1200 x 600 I think - in 6mm, 9mm, 12mm according to what is needed to create clearance.

Screwfix do a pack of assorted plastic shims.

They are not likely to melt or distort with a modern oven casing.

I thought you had to leave the area under the Oven clear to allow airflow and only have the oven sit on brackets?

My oven didn't come with brackets and was sat on the MFC shelf which overheated and started to "burn". I remove it all and built a "ledge" approx 50mm for the left and right of the oven to sit on, with the area under totally clear.

ah

When wiring up new double oven, I noticed that it was sat on a piece of board which was sat on two aluminium angle brackets, I checked the instructions and it stated that there had to be no restriction of airflow underneath and had to be sat on the supplied brackets, I removed the board, and inserted two "skid" fillets on each bracket, to lift it back up 16mm, no problem since.

I wasn't laughing at the time ... could have been a lot worse than a bit of chard timber! I hate to think how many ovens across the country have been poorly fitted

ah

Actually, that was aimed at Nos who really did suffer his house burned down. On reflection, it was a joke in poor taste but at the time I thought he would laugh.

Dont worry I have a thick skin :lol: Being in the medical profession most of my life I can find most things funny :huray: We didnt have power in that house just a genny, that was probably the cause of the fire, this oven was in our brand new rented house, built six years ago, but never lived in, apart from Bats and mice and the odd birds nest, so had to do a lot of tidying up :cb and work in the wiring and plumbing departments. Our replacement build starts on the 18th.
