Pipe doesn't allow gas range to be installed flush against wall
Hi! I'm renovating a home and have a narrow galley kitchen. The standard 30 inch gas range arrived a few days ago and it does not stand flush against the wall because the gas pipe from the wall sticks out quite a bit. Can I do anything to have the range installed flush against the wall? The plumber has not arrived yet - would the range itself have a back panel which could perhaps be removed so that the pipe is ensconced inside the range? My apartment is in an NYC coop - I don't think they'll allow me to recess the pipe in the wall. Thanks for all your help!
