tom goellner :

Just to clarify - a drop in range has a cabinet under it ( it is NOT self supporting ) A slide - in range is similar but goes all the way to the floor ( it IS self supporting ) - which do you have ?

Customer:

dropin

Customer:

I don't see an answer

tom goellner :

So the WIDTH of the cut out hole is 28 1/2 inches ?? Do you have the space to cut out 3/4 of an inch on each side ?

Customer:

no

Customer:

not without modifying cabinets

Customer:

and we also have ceramic countertops so we are trying to not have to destroy it all

tom goellner :

Every thing i've checked requires a 30 in. wide cut out space, at least all the common names . Perhaps WOLF , DACOR, SAMSUNG, or LG , but I don't have access to their product installation requirements.

Customer:

ok ty for your help
