Before sliding out the wall oven, measure the overall dimensions of the front of the oven. With the oven door open, remove the screws securing the oven to the wall. To avoid damaging the cabinetry, it is important to remove any trim.

With the oven slightly away from the wall, use a tape measure to measure the opening along the top, bottom and sides. If possible, it is also helpful to measure the depth of opening from the front edge to the back wall, although most modern wall ovens have a standard cabinet depth of 24 inches.
