A Sears salesman told me that the ONLY range I could replace my current range with would be a Jenn-Aire without major reconstruction. It is located on a pennisula, not an outside wall, on the mid-level of our 3 story home. The basement has a drop ceiling. The oven vents into the downstairs utility room.

I would like to replace the range with a slide in gas range, possibly the GE Cafe. Am looking for mid-price range, stainless with double oven, reliable, not Viking or Wolf.

Any advice if the salesman is correct and/or best replacement range would be appreciated.

** The oven vents into the downstairs utility room. **

That is not a very good idea for cleanliness nor safety! I'm sure it would be against building codes.

** I would like to replace the range with a slide in gas range **

The venting would DEFINITELY be a no-no for a GAS appliance... assuming you did go with another vented model.

** A Sears salesman told me that the ONLY range I could replace my current range with would be a Jenn-Aire without major reconstruction... Any advice if the salesman is correct? **

I doubt anyone here (or elsewhere) could answer that without actually being able to see what is involved. I would suggest you call an experienced appliance *installer* (not a sales or repair person) to actually look to see what will be involved.

I doubt however that any licensed professional would install a vented range replacement with the venting as you described. It will likely need to be corrected.
