Hi Folks. I am posting this in the "general" category, hoping to cast a broad net to anyone who's removed their range/oven. I would be particularly thrilled with responses by owners of a late model Fleetwood Discovery (or similar) product, as that may be particularly relevant for me..
I have a 2013 Fleetwood Discovery 40G and I'm beginning a new mod. I am going to remove the range/oven combo and replace it with a stove-top, and a dishwasher underneath. I will document the mod for later distribution...
First step will be to remove the range/oven, and already I'm a little puzzled. I attached a picture of my range here... I have a series of drawers to the left of my range, and our residential fridge to the right. I'm wondering how the heck they secure these ranges, and thus how I would remove it?
I pulled some drawers out hoping to see the range in there, but Fleetwood installed a solid plywood board between the range and the inner-workings of the drawers. Dang! There is an access panel underneath the range that I'll rmove next to see if they screwed the range in from underneath, but that seems a little odd to me.
Anyone out there with experience removing these ranges? Please tell me I don't need to remove the counter top!! How the heck do I get this thing out!! It must be bolted down, right?
