Monogram ovens are installed directly into a wall or
wall oven cabinetry, 27" minimum width. The front
surface of the ovens will be nearly flush with surrounding cabinetry. To obtain optimal appearance,
cabinet cutouts must be exact. The examples shown
here illustrate typical styles of 27" cabinets and oven
fit. Installation instructions for each of these basic
cabinetry styles are provided in this section.

Designer Note: Whenever
possible, align the oven with

Inset Flush Door
If you are using front framed cabinets with inset
doors, these ovens can be installed flush with the
front. In this installation the oven is completely
recessed into the cabinet.
This is achieved by installing cleats, set back 15/16"
from the front frame. The cleats will hold the oven
mounting screws. The cabinet must be wide enough
to allow 26-7/8" opening. Whenever possible, order
the cabinets with the cutout sized to fit the oven.
Provide this information to the cabinet manufacturer
in advance.

Rough opening for single and double ovens:
• Depth 24-1/2" min. from inside back to front of
cabinet frame.
– If the cabinet is not 24-1/2" deep, the back of the
cabinet should be cutout. The cutout should be
minimized in order to maintain structural strength
and squareness of the cabinet.
• Height—for double oven 50-3/4".

Provide
oven supports
The ovens may be supported by either a solid bottom
or 2 x 4 runners.
• The support must be level and rigidly mounted,
flush with the bottom edge of the cutout.
• The entire weight of the oven is supported by 2 x 4
runners or the solid floor and must be capable of
supporting 200 lbs. for double ovens and 150 lbs.
for single ovens.
If a solid bottom is used, a 6" x 10" rectangle must be
cut out to allow enough cooling airflow during a selfcleaning operation.
– Cut the solid bottom out of 5/8" min. thick
sheeting to fit the inside dimensions of the
cabinet. Measure 10-1/2" from left side and 7"
from the back wall. Cut the ventilation hole 6"
wide and 10" deep.
• Measure and mark the location of the runners or
solid floor.
– 13-1/4" from the floor to the top of support, for
double ovens.
– 32-1/2" recommended from the floor to the top of
support, for single ovens.
• Cut two pieces of 3/8" to 5/8" thick sheeting, to fit
inside cabinet depth and available inside cabinet
height. If there is no interference below the cutout,
such as drawer runners, the sheeting can rest on the
floor. Secure the sheeting strips or pieces to the
cabinet walls with screws. Lay 2 x 4 or solid bottom
on top of the sheeting and drive screws through the
top and into the sheeting.

Determine
need for
filler panels
If the cabinets being used have an opening that is
taller than the maximum dimensions indicated for
the ovens, filler panels can be made to fill the gaps.
Stock filler strips are usually available or for larger
gaps order an extra drawer front. Drawer fronts are
recommended because they will match the cabinetry
and have finished edges. Any cut edges will be seen
and should be finished.
Frameless cabinets usually come with a front panel
covering the opening. For the optimum finished look,
this panel can be removed and used to construct filler
panels.
The oven support floor and supports should be
installed at the required locations.
If there is a gap between the oven support floor and
the bottom of the opening, a bottom filler panel
should be constructed to fill the gap.
Measure from the oven support floor to the top of the
opening. If the opening height is larger than the
maximum cutout height, a filler panel should be
constructed to fill the gap.
Filler panel
construction
We suggest that the filler panel be constructed using
4 pieces:
• Appearance panel to match doors and drawers.
• A rail which will be covered by the oven overlaps
and conceal any slight gap between the top or
bottom of the oven and the start of the filler panel.
The face of the rail should be made of finished
matching material; the cut edges and ends do not
need to be finished.
• Cleats which will be used to secure the filler panel
and rail to the cabinet. One for each side.
13
Cabinetry Modification Suggestions
Built-In Ovens
Cut rail
for filler
panel
Cut the rail out of finished material:
• The width should match cabinet opening width.
• The height of the top rail should be enough to
securely attach the rail to the appearance panel,
plus 1/4" oven trim overlap.
• The height of the bottom rail should be enough to
securely attach the rail to the appearance panel,
plus 7/8" oven trim overlap.
• The height of both the top and bottom rails should
be adjusted depending upon the height of the gap
to be filled or to enhance appearance.
Cut appearance
panel
Use drawer fronts for appearance panels or cut
finished material and finish raw edges.
• The appearance panel width should match drawer
fronts or doors.
• Make the appearance panel appropriate height to
fill the gap above or below the oven, allowing for
reveals and overlaps to match existing drawers or
doors.
Determine
location
of cleats
• To find the exact position of the cleats, place the
appearance panel onto the cabinet in desired
position and align to match the other drawers and
doors.

• Use a pencil to mark the back side of the panel
where it meets the cabinet corners.

For the top filler panel:
• Cut 2 cleats out of 3/4" thick material, approximately 1-1/4" wide.
• Cut the cleats to a length leaving approximately
1/2" at the bottom of the appearance panel to
attach the rail.
• Position the outside edge and top of the cleat
against the corner pencil marks.
• Secure the cleat to the appearance panel with
screws.

• Electrical cable—3-conductor or 4-conductor wire—as required
by local codes
• Flexible power cable connector
• Electrician’s pliers
Note: Do not use an extension
cord with these appliances.
Monogram built-in single and double ovens require
a separate, properly grounded 3-wire 120/208 or 120/
240 volt, 60 Hz power supply, protected by a time
delay fuse or circuit breaker. Ovens are supplied with a
flexible power cable, which must be attached to a
junction box. The cable length is 48" for both single
and double conventional ovens. The cable length for
convection type ovens is 54".
Double ovens are rated 6.8 KW at 240 volt, and 5.1 KW
at 208 volt.
Single ovens are rated 3.4 KW at 240 volt, and 2.6 KW
at 208 volt.
Electrical
locations
The back of the ovens have chamfered corners which
provide a “chase” for the conduit when installing a
junction box above or below the oven(s).
The conduit is located on the back of the oven,
approximately 10" from the right side.
For double oven:
• Locate and install the junction box within reach of
the power cord.
– Approximately 10" from the left side of opening
– 56" minimum above the cutout floor
– or, through the left side of cabinet wall into
adjacent cabinet.
16
For single oven:
• Locate and install the junction box within reach of
the power cord.
– Approximately 10" from left side of opening.
– At least 5" below the cutout floor
– Or 34" minimum above the cutout floor
– or, through the left side of cabinet wall into
adjacent cabinet.

breakage or handle damage may
occur. Glass surface of door face
extends beyond door frame on
each side; be careful not to
impact this exposed glass.
Caution: When door is
removed and hinge arms are at
stop position, do not bump or try
to move hinge arms. Hinges
could snap back, causing an
injury to hands or damage to
porcelain surface.
Remove oven door:
• Open the door to stop position.
• Grasp each side of door, lifting up and off the hinges.
• Cover hinges with toweling while working in oven
area.
Install lower
oven trim
Note: The lower front trim is packed separately and should not be
attached until the oven is installed and secured to the installation
opening.
• Secure lower front trim to the front frame with 3
Phillips head screws provided.
• Secure trim to the side trim with 2 #20 torx head
screws as illustrated.
CAUTION
CAUTION
The bottom trim provides an opening for
cooling air to enter the cabinet. This
opening should never be blocked.
Route

Note: It is best that 2 people
perform this step: one to hold

With oven in front of cabinet opening:
• Start feeding the flexible power cable through
cutout.
• Insert oven 3/4 way into cabinet opening. Continue
to feed flexible power cable while sliding oven into
place. This is to insure that the flexible power cable
will not get trapped between the back of the oven
and the back of the cabinet wall.
