    hi all
    1st time in
    working on a 5700 steptop install
    looking to verify the clearances for a corner install
    i have checked and rechecked
    can't believe 2" to combustable wall as per manual
    anyone got a buyoff from inspection for anything this close?

    Go by the manual. Its correct. Inspectors will trust the manual if you show them that as well.

    One thing you want to check for also is the pipe clearances. If you are using double wall connector pipe usually the min stove clearances are plenty of room. But if you use single wall connector pipe you often have to move the stove out further just to meet the pipe clearances.

    Owners manual says 2". Mine is more than that, but the most thing the BI was looking at was the distance of the pipe from the walls.
    Go by the book. Works every time

    owners manual says 2" to the stove
    i'm at about 7" (worked out that way)
    manual says 13" to pipe
    single or double same, says manual
    i'm 22" centerline minus pipe radius (3" for 6" pipe) = 19"
    good there as well
    thanks for the headsup on the pipe clearance
    just astounded that the stove could be as close as 2" to a combustable wall
