Hi, I`m replacing a single electric oven (2.2Kw) under the worktop.
The new oven is deeper than the old one, and right behind it is the gas pipe which feeds the gas hob. The pipe comes out of the wall, with an elbow saldered to the vertical pipe. The back of the oven will be 15mm from the saldered joint. Is there any danger of salder melting ?
[quote="plumbbob"]The solder will not melt as the 200+ degrees centigrade required will be well in excess of the outside temperature of the oven which probably won't be more than hand hot.[/quote]
Thanks 'plumbbob', reassured to know that salder melting point is around 200 deg. C. Oven cooking temperature is around 220 deg. C , so as you say outside temperature will be much lower. Gas pipe is 15 mm away, even better. I'll be roasting today.
