Do-it-yourself oven connection after installation: instructions, recommendations and video


When new kitchen fur­ni­ture is installed, all built-in appli­ances are installed by fur­ni­ture mak­ers them­selves. But what to do if the instal­la­tion of the oven needs to be done in a long-installed set. Is it pos­si­ble to do this work on your own? Let’s clar­i­fy the sit­u­a­tion, how to prop­er­ly mount and then con­nect the oven, tak­ing into account all the prob­lems and nuances of these process­es.

Built-in oven installation instructions

Any oven is extreme­ly easy to install — when the nec­es­sary dimen­sions of the niche in the cab­i­net are scrupu­lous­ly observed in the man­u­fac­ture of fur­ni­ture, the process will not last longer than half an hour with a spe­cial­ist. But a per­son who has nev­er pre­vi­ous­ly engaged in such activ­i­ties will have to work a lit­tle longer.

Let’s ana­lyze the sit­u­a­tion in detail. All actions are per­formed in stages:

  1. The oven is insert­ed inside the niche of the cab­i­net;
  2. To exclude its move­ment inside, the body is fixed with 4 fur­ni­ture screws;
  3. It is con­nect­ed to the gas sys­tem or the intra-house elec­tri­cal net­work.

If the oven is installed in a cab­i­net on top of which the hob is mount­ed, all ven­ti­la­tion of the device is car­ried out through the back of the head­set.

How to connect the oven?

Many peo­ple are scared away by the inde­pen­dent device of a gas instal­la­tion because of the need to con­nect to a gas pipeline. How­ev­er, you should be aware that all devices locat­ed behind the shut-off valve do not belong to gas ser­vices, there­fore it is allowed to con­nect new devices on your own.

To prop­er­ly con­nect, you must fol­low the instruc­tions below:

  1. Dis­con­nect the plate from the shut-off valve and screw a high-qual­i­ty tee direct­ly onto the pipe. Do not for­get to use tow in this process, which should be smeared with paint. Tight­en the new tee tight­ly, but with­out undue zeal.
  2. Equip the result­ing branch­es of the tee with sep­a­rate taps with yel­low han­dles.
  3. Check the tight­ness of all joints after installing the list­ed ele­ments. To do this, you need to open the cen­tral tap, and then grease all the joints with water, dilut­ing soap in it first. If there is a gas leak, bub­bles will be notice­able — then every­thing will have to be redone again.
  4. Plug in a new oven if bub­bles do not form. The device must be con­nect­ed to the cor­re­spond­ing faucet with a flex­i­ble con­nec­tion. Insert a gas­ket into the hose nut, lubri­cate it with sol­id oil, and screw it to the tap fit­ting.

When the hose is con­nect­ed, its tight­ness is checked with soapy water, you can mount the oven in a niche, and then check how it func­tions. Keep in mind that most devices need to be con­nect­ed to elec­tric­i­ty, as they have lights, gas leak sen­sors, and oth­er fea­tures.

Impor­tant! It is unde­sir­able to mount an out­let right behind the oven — take it out to a cab­i­net locat­ed near­by.

Recommendations for connecting the oven

When installing an elec­tric oven, there are no gas hoses, but you should not relax too much, since no one has can­celed the safe­ty rules. Incor­rect con­nec­tion can cause many prob­lems for the own­ers, the most sig­nif­i­cant of which will be a short cir­cuit that can cause a fire. By all means, every­thing must be done cor­rect­ly — to steadi­ly fol­low such ingen­u­ous rec­om­men­da­tions:

  1. The oven is a pow­er­ful cur­rent con­sumer, for it you will have to lay a sep­a­rate line of wire with a cross sec­tion of 2.5 mm2. There is no doubt that the wire should not have twists, no mat­ter how well they are sol­dered.
  2. The elec­tri­cal branch to the oven must be equipped with its own cir­cuit break­er, and its pow­er must be deter­mined, tak­ing into account the cur­rent con­sumed by the unit. Usu­al­ly 16 amperes is enough, but when a hob is adja­cent to the line at the same time, a more pow­er­ful machine should be installed.
  3. An indis­pens­able con­di­tion is the pres­ence of ground­ing. Only it ensures the safe oper­a­tion of the con­nect­ed equip­ment. For a pri­vate build­ing, this is not dif­fi­cult, but it can be more dif­fi­cult for res­i­dents of apart­ments to act — old build­ings are not equipped with ground­ing at all. You will have to orga­nize it your­self. It is nec­es­sary to lead an addi­tion­al cable core to the com­mon shield for the entrance and screw it there to the met­al ele­ment of the hous­ing.

After orga­niz­ing the elec­tri­cal wiring, fur­ther actions will not dif­fer in any way from those that we described for installing a gas oven. The only thing that will have to be done addi­tion­al­ly is to equip the wire of the pur­chased oven with a high-qual­i­ty plug. The unit cable has three cores inside. Find among them one that has a green­ish-yel­low col­or — this is ground­ing. It must be con­nect­ed in the plug to the ground­ing cen­ter ter­mi­nal. But the remain­ing wires can be screwed arbi­trar­i­ly to oth­er plug ter­mi­nals. The con­tacts must be strong­ly crimped, oth­er­wise the insu­la­tion will heat up — so wait a short time for a short cir­cuit.

The fin­ish­ing point of any instal­la­tion is the final check of the installed oven’s per­for­mance.

Mounted oven

It is enough to turn it on accord­ing to the instruc­tions, make sure the indi­ca­tion is func­tion­ing, check the heat­ing, and then turn it on at full pow­er. Set the ther­mome­ter to 150 °, which will burn out all the fac­to­ry grease that is inside the oven. It is like­ly that there is smoke dur­ing this process — this should not scare you. After the grease burns out, the oven can begin to be ful­ly used.

Video installation of the oven

To make sure that it is ele­men­tary easy to mount the oven your­self, you should watch the video. The expert demon­strates in detail how the instal­la­tion of an elec­tric oven into the kitchen set takes place.

The only thing that needs to be added in con­clu­sion is that if there is no com­plete self-con­fi­dence, it is bet­ter not to pro­ceed with the instal­la­tion. Although every­thing seems quite sim­ple, it is easy to make a mis­take, which will result in a re-instal­la­tion.
