Measure twice or maybe 3X prior to cutting, or in this circumstance purchasing.Bought a new Samsung electric range. We had the original one, which was a drop in, and this is a slide in so we knew some work was going to be required. I thought I had it measured correctly, but I guess I didn't because when this puppy arrived, it's 29.75" wide and the space between the cabinets is 29.5".
So, I figure I need to take at least a 1/4" from each cabinet (or 1/2" from one). Thinking the 1/2" from one may be my easiest option. There is one cabinet I can rip out, cut and put back in. But it's going to make a job that should have taken an hour (need to redo the wiring from the floor to the wall) into something probably substantially more.
Nothing is ever easy.
So, the question, is the frame where you are measuring or the box? Maybe you might be able to just cut the “frame” 1/4” on both sides.
