I would say no. It is behind an appliance that doesn't move. If the stove was ment to be remove regularly then I would say yes.

Do you not have height requirement for box on stove rec?
No really subject to damage as long as stove can't hit it. IMO

All the stoves I have installed have had to have the outlet on the floor or very very close to the floor. There isn't much room as the stoves are usually flat backed.

Fowl Tests LLC

Send me your widget, i'll tie it to my work truck bumper and drag it around for a day or so

If it's still intact after that, it gets the 'physical damage' scratch of approval

Sorry, I was referring to flush mounting when possible.

Wolf stoves have a shop drawing indicating the outlet location.
I usually mount my boxes on the bottom plate, so it's 1.5 inches above the floor

In Ontario new install of stove outlet would be flush mounted in the wall and 130mm above finished floor to center (OESC 26-744 ETC.) It looks like you may be using SOW cord to feed the receptacle, if that is true there are so many defects pictured I won't bother counting them. If you are using proper building wire ie NMD then there are still defects, 1 stove receptacle height rule, 2 nmd within 5 feet of floor must be protected ( OESC 12-518 ). I am from Ontario and this picture would not be acceptable here but I can't speak for other locations

I'm thinking the baseboard installer will smoke it.

Maybe no baseboards in America? We have em in Canada.

Not a great job but you know that.
