It can still be a slide in, the body side panel kit just flushes the sides out, so you can do whatever you want. It would be pointless to put the kit on then slide it in, but it won't hurt anything
the problem is the 2 inches of metal that comes at front side is very tacky looking. would send stove back but my contractor cut the plastic so trying to come up with better look in my new kitchen. Contractor thinks adding sides with add width to stove and it won;t fit my 30" opening. Actual have about 1/4 -1/2 extra space in opening
the picture on ge website only shows the panels at bottom not how they intergrate to cooktop
Ohh .. yeah if you have 1/2" extra space in the cabinet, you should be fine
it will add about 1/4" to each side
ok I think I will order the side panels tomorrow. Now can you tell me how difficult it is to replace the control panel back assembly? Since contractor cut it, it doesn't look to good either. Considering ordering one of those as well.
He cut the notches to try and make it slide back with out cutting granite which is what should have been done
I would need to see exactly what he cut, if you can post a pic it would be helpful
As far as changing it most of the time it's just a couple screws
not got at quickly uploading pics. he cut out where the notch on the stove is suppose to fit against front of countertop to allow stove to slide in further
Probably won't be cheap
However it should be easy to swap
Can you post your FULL MODEL number?
jsp46dpww is what is used on lowes site when purchased. ge site requires choice between jsp46dp1ww or jsp46dp2ww found on stove mine is dp2
ok give me a minute
tell me from this diagram which parts he cut?
He cut part 1 behind the notches at front end of that piece on both sides
ok ... lemme get you a part number ... just another sec
WB36T10668 is the part number it's about 75 bucks from Marcone by calling at 1-888-464-2853.
The diagram shows you how it comes apart
it shouldn't be that hard to change
Ok thank you. I will have to hire someone to replace it. any idea what i should expect to pay
If your under warranty (ie new) the labor should be free as long as it's a GE authorized servicer
I would personally (if your in the nashville tennessee market) charge about 75 bucks total
However labor rates vary GREATLY around the country
It is new stove delivered in Jan. during my kitchen remodel but assumed since contractor cut it it wouldn't be under warranty
well the part definitly won't be
No i'm in Ca bay area
And if the servicer wants to be a jerk about it
it won't be covered
But it's easy to say it wouldn't power on due to a loose wire on a control panel if you get what I'm saying
If you were local I would do it no cost labor if you bought the part
can't say what your particular servicer will or won't do
ok I will try a warranty repair place. thanks for your help. at least i feel like maybe i can make this stove work
yeah you can
No problem ... if you do need anything else just lemme know.
