Help! How do I adapt a standard 600mm base to an oven base

Post by Broken_Nails »

On a budget and bought a second hand Magnet* kitchen from eBay. I have a 600mm base which I want to convert to an oven base. What essentially are the differences? I'm thinking it'll need airflow etc, but I'm also guessing the shelf is stronger?

Has anyone done this before? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

*Most annoying, after I collected it, I found that Magnet had changed their unit measurements so I can't buy extra units to fit.

Code: Select all

Usually a built in oven has the airflow integrated at top and bottom already so really it is just a case of fitting it into the unit. The oven may possibly have side flanges that usually have convenient screw holes to secure the unit into the face edges of the cabinet. You do find that with oven unit cabinets it is common to beef up the shelf with another piece of melamine faced chipboard screwed to it. This doubling up gives a thickness of 36mm overall. You can screw through the cabinet edges into the additional 'shelf' to give more support if you want. :thumbright:
