Airslide, & Carol,
Hope you get your stove/ovens in and working with minimal problems. I don't agree with 62bam. Once you've had fresh huckelberry pie baked in your Airstream oven.....you will know you've done the right thing!

Airslide,

My repair guy just came and said that the oven does just slide in and hangs on the side ledges. We checked and there is no base under my current oven so we will do it the same way with the new one unless anyone has any other ideas about it being necessary. I checked online and the only two ovens that came close to my dimensions were Magic Chef and Amana, the only difference is now they just make three burners instead of four. The Magic Chef looks to be the better fit for my space and a friend of mine is going to make a trade with me for an old wall clock I have and order me the new stove/oven unit. Hooray!

Carol

Thats great news Carol. If you can fire off a picture of the final installation that would be great. You are ahead of me with your project.

Thanks Vinnie

I'll take photos as we do the installation since like you, there are some dimension revisions that will have to be done. The Magic Chef is a slightly smaller width size than my current opening so I imagine two shims will be needed, I have two big an opening depthwise, have to find something to fill that and take off an inch of the cabinet area down below so the height will fit in. There seem to be a lot of rivets around all the top edges so I am not sure if that is also securing the stove in place along with the side screws. Not sure how you get those out either which is why I have a repair guy....

Today was oven installation day. Picked up the Magic Chef model CLY2220BDB13. It seems that Maytag, Amana and Magic Chef are all from the same manufacture? Remember Im taking out a Maytag 3 burner cooktop and three drawers for this installation. The cooktop also had the corian folding top that I really wanted to keep (more on that later).

Once I removed the cooktop I noticed that it sat in a nice metal lip that allowed it to be supported all the way around. This seemed to be overkill for the cooktop but I was hoping it would work for the oven since the oven is just hung from the upper ledge. I ran into another problem involving the depth of the compartment. Airstream installs a panel so the drawers have something to attach the runners to. Now that the drawers have been removed there is no need for runners and the panel could be removed. The installation was very simple just basically slide the oven back into place on the supporting metal ledge the cooktop sat in. The gas line was in perfect position with nothing to do but attach the fitting. With the oven installed I have about 5 to 6 inches from the rear wall and about a 1 1/2 inch clearance on the sides. The bottom has a gap thats open of about an inch. I feel good about this as heat (if any) can excape and there is a good visual underneath. The only problem I ran into was the cover. The new cooktop grills are one piece and the cover folds in two pieces. When folding flush the center section would make contact with the grill. It was necessary to notch the cover to fit over the grill and sit flush on the rubber stops. Now the cover fits flush. This is an easy DIY project. Cant wait for that apple pie!

You win, mine hasn't even shown up yet... Your's looks beautiful and it doesn't sound like the job was too difficult. Knock on wood or those will be famous last words for me.
Good work!

Carol

Where did you have to bolt it to secure it? Was it hard getting the old one out?

Carol,

It was very easy to remove the cooktop. The metal flange that the cooktop sits in can stay in place (unless you want to remove it to clean it) and then the oven can slide right in its place. The oven instructions call for atleast 4 #8 screws to hold it in place but the flange allows for full support all the way around with 6 screws doing that job. Then the oven itself mounts to the flange with the four screws that were holding in the cooktop. Its really pretty easy since I went with the same brand. There have been some advancements in the top burners since the old days so I think you will be really happy and the oven is easier to lite now as well.

Vinnie
