facade_4343_flat5_lg This illustration reflects a Bistro Home 4343 oven but applies to the Bistro Home 3030 as well.

Step 1. The Base Oven

Figure 1 represents a standard Bistro oven. The Bistro arrives with Stainless Steel front, sides and top, and a black painted stand. Many customers choose to install the oven with this finish as a “stand-alone” unit.

Step 2. Connect Flue

Connect the Flue to the oven’s flue collar. Please note this flue must be a “grease duct”. Please see our Venting Guidelines Page for more details.

Installation manuals ship with the oven. You can also preview these manuals, or print off extra copies, at our Manuals Page.

Step 3. Build Stud Wall

The stud wall is built (in green). Metal studs are recommended. Consideration must be given to the wall framing position to insure the minimum one-inch offset from the back of the wall surface (sheetrock) to the oven sheet metal (see Offset Detail).

If non-combustible cement board is used, clearance becomes 0 inches.

In addition, the studs on either side of the doorway must be far enough apart so that when sheet rock and tile are installed, the Service Panel can still be removed for oven service. If the service panel is going to be covered with a facade application, you must order your unit with a Perforated Toe Kick to allow room for combustion air.

Step 4. Non-Combustibles

Seen here in yellow is the non-combustible wallboard. This is required directly over the oven doorway and 6″ on either side of the doorway.

Non-combustible material is also required anywhere the facade touches the oven or the mantle. In this illustration, the non-combustible wallboard is used as flashing from the studs to either side of the service panel and contacts the edge of the mantle.

Step 5. The Finished Product

The wall can be finished with any decorative material that can be easily affixed to the wall surface such as tile, stucco, sheet metal, brick etc.

The service panel must remain accessible and removable for maintenance and service.

Additionally, it is necessary for the proper operation of our ovens that the Radiant Flame Control Knob be fully accessible after all finishing is completed. This knob controls temperature in our gas ovens, if you cannot adjust the knob, you cannot adjust the temperature
