A low profile range receptacle?
Our range receptacle is surface-mounted several inches up from the floor on an outside wall.
The new stove has a flush back on it so it doesn't fit over the receptacle and plug like the old one did. This means the stove is sticking out a good 3 inches more than it should as the back of the stove is up against the plug while it's plugged into the receptacle.
I know there is a flush-mount receptacle I can mount in a box, but are there any surface mounted options? I think the blades are just too big for this to ever be low profile, but I don't know what's out there.
Can you mount these surface-mount receptacles on/in the floor? Or at least "at" the floor? If I were to move the existing receptacle down and turn it horizontally at the floor, that might take care of the problem.
Are there provisions in the NEC for a flush-mount a range receptacle on the floor? This would be the best option for fitment, but ...
What are my options for making this "low profile"?
