Installing a New Cooktop Under an Oven

Here’s a question from our 7/27/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Mary from Florida says, “I have a cooktop, GE, and my oven is on top, (over it). My cooktop needs to be changed. It is a 30-inch I believe. The dials that control the cooktop are currently on my oven.

“When I buy my new cooktop, that unit will have the dials directly on it. Will it be a problem to configure the electrical wiring for this? My cooktop has the electric coils and I will purchase another with the coils. Wooden cabinets are under cooktop.”

We tell Mary an electrician should be able to use the existing wiring on a new cooktop for her kitchen.
