Gas stove unhook and installation of new range

Came to unhook current gas range and install new range.

Advised that he could not under current configuration of cupboards beside the range. Not conforming to building code or gas standards,

THOSE WHO REMODELING YOUR KITCHEN TAKE NOTE.

Advised I has range installed 10 yrs prior and nothing was said, he advised that if I had had a fire, my insurance company wasn’t obligated for any costs associated, because it was not to code. Phoned the TSSA to confirm. He was right- I was not to code.

30” above the stove and 18” from counter to upper cupboards beside the stove. The gas code is now under the building code, as of 2015. Gas code from what I can gather has been in effect for about 25 yrs.!

Luckily, I has fake panels to hide under cupboards lights.

I removed them which gave me height and advised Steve, and he came back (very promptly) and unhooked the old stove and connected new stove and setup, including testing.

Building codes are in place for a reason, for safety and the safety of your pocketbook.

Honest and reliable service.

Now I just have to fix my walls.

The clearances are printed in the installation manual that is supplied with the appliance. The manual was adopted into the gas code in 2005.

Gas range installation and disconnect of old unit

I purchased a new gas range. Steve came to disconnect old range and install new.

I had previous range installed 10 yrs ago, in the same house.

He came in, looked at range -and said he couldn't touch it!

HOMEOWNERS - read carefully! Gas code states that there are set clearance measurements for a gas range that have been in effect for numerous years. Then in 2015 Building Code added the range codes (gas and electric).

You require 30" above the range and beside the range - counter to cupboards 18" minimum. Nothing is grandfathered in.

If you had a fire starting from your range - your insurance doesn't cover you!!

Steve advised he couldn't do the work until the cupboards were in compliance.

Luckily for me, my cupboards had a decorative trim (4-5") that could be removed, therefore putting me in compliance. Otherwise I would have to do a kitchen Reno $$$. Just have to repair some wall areas now.

If it wasn't for him, I would never have known. The previous installer never said anything!

My old range was disconnected and he placed unit on a mat to ensure my floors wouldn't be scratch. Installed new unit and put all the pieces for the stove top together (nothing is fully assembled anymore) . 905-317-3321
