Oven And Cook Top Whips


How do you guys connect the flex whips for cooktops and free standing or built in ovens?

A flush mount box with a 90 degree flex connector in the blank cover? Surface mount box? Box inside the cabinet?

Surface mount box? Yes.
Box inside the cabinet? Yes, most often.

A flush mount box with a 90 degree flex connector in the blank cover? Yes, but rarely. Normally when the oven is 23" deep and the cabinet is 24" deep. Surface mount box? About 49% of the time. Box inside the cabinet? The other 49% of the time.

Re: Oven And Cook Top Whips


i use a NM adjustable box during rough in, then to an appropriate sized 4-0 extension ring, and flex into that. but it does depend on install, try to avoid the coverplate method if i an get it in a cab with more space.
