    Oven fitting headache; alter worktop

    Kitchen Fitters

    We moved into a house with a broken oven. All the ones to replace it are 90cm wide and the existing oven and gap are 89.5cm. There is a single cupboard to the right of the oven with worktop above (probably about 50cm long) so I think the best solution is to take out this bit of worktop, trim off c.1cm and then reseal it back in. Does this sound possible and how much might it cost? To a layman, it sounds like with the right tools it could be quite a quick job.

    "If the cupboard next to oven is a base unit you might be able to unscrew it and move it over. Depends how it’s all been fitted or you may have to get a new oven unit and base unit. Some pictures would be better to see what we are looking at."

    "Most 600 ovens come in just under 600 so it may fit."

    "Yes that’s the best way but the oven just because it’s 900 it when it come it mite fit as there are a bit smaller but if you want it doing it should take about 30 minutes to 1 hour and looking £50"

    Is this an integrated oven?
    I would be surprised if you couldn’t find a replacement without having to make adjustments to your kitchen.
    Don’t just look at the oven title heading. Look at the technical specs and you might find that they are not actually 90cm.
    Good luck.

    "Hi there,

    Your project sounds viable, although most companies will request a few images to assess the work before coming to the site.
    Different companies will charge varying fees for a 1-2 hours visit, which usually includes the materials and labour cost.
    Additional hours would carry extra costs, although it seems that 1-2 hours would be enough to complete the task with your requirement.

    Hope it helps,"
