I have purchased a new free standing range to replace the ancient Jenn-Aire down draft drop-in range that came with my house. I am aware that I will be removing the part of the cabinet below the old range and possibly having to adjust the opening size, but my question relates to actually getting the old range out of it's current location. There is grouted tile along the back of the range and down the left side. The right side butts up to a butcher block countertop. I need to know if this stove is bolted down, and if so, how do I get to the bolts to remove them. This stove is an older style with the blower motor and grease jar, etc on the left side. The range sits atop a built-in drawer and I have pulled the drawer out and looked at the stove from underneath and I cannot figure out what is holding it into the opening. I have opened the oven door and tried to pull on the stove to see if it will wiggle, but no dice. Can the grout that seems to be between the tile and the stove be holding it from moving, or is there some mounting hardware that I am not seeing. I have tried to find installation instructions on the Web, to get some ideas, but can't find anything relating to a stove this old. Would appreciate any thoughts on this - Thanks!
