Default Happy Holidays/ Check out my range recep.

Hi guys!! Happy Holidays!

So, I'm cleaning up my kitchen, making room for some new All-Clad cookware that I bought for my fiance which included clearing out the drawer under the stove. I found an install I have never seen before. Has anyone ever installed a range receptacle in this manner? If so, why?

If it's a wood floor with a crawl space, I bet the wire is stubbed up into the back of the recept. Easier that way.

I've done that in mobile homes a few times. Drilled big hole in floor, stuck cable down to minion under the home, had them drag it to the panel, put the recep over the hole. Done.

Ok so I'm on my phone and responding with quotes and things is virtually impossible..
There is actually basement below, it's in a townhouse built in 1971. It looks to me like someone had just enough cable to run it as the crow flies and didn't make it to the wall.
As far as "Happy Holidays" .. no, I'm not trying to be politically correct, it's just what I always say. It's just words. Smh :p
CS, it sure does!! Love the code reference.

Maybe it was hardwired at one time then a new range arrived and had a cord on it, Mr hack job didnt know quite what he was doing , that install is a non compliance in our code.

It's merry Christmas if that's what the person saying it feels like saying. Any way you slice it someone is trying to wish you well, don't get your knickers in a knot.

For interest's sake, that install would not be compliant in Canada.

When I was an apprentice I worked for a company that did condos, lots and lots of condos. We must have done it just like that a thousand times.
Like Steve mentioned (422.33(B)) the receptacle has to be accessible by removing the drawer, otherwise you would need a disconnect within sight of the appliance.

I like it, no reaching back to tuck cord from pushing drawer back, plenty of slack, easily accessible no need to pull it out and it clears easily and also legal. Only did it twice and both were block walls with floor access. Nice. Draw back always suck with a bottom drawer style range, but they all have that don't they.

I suspect they recessed it in due to limited depth
to fit a surface mount on the floor and the block
wall was an immediate "EF that I'm not cuttin
anything into that wall" mentality.

Forgot to say Merry Holidays , Happy Christmas and
have a very prosperous Hanuka
