True, it is not a smart installation, but is it wrong? In my opinion no, not if it is not a code violation.
Would I install one like that on purpose, of course not. If the counters got rearranged and it wound up being a few inched behind the cooktop, would I move it? NO, not unless paid to, or forced to by an inspector.
While codes are
a minimum standard, they are still very liberal and broad. Even a code minimum installation is a very safe installation.
Triple D says it is a violation. I have never heard this. I was just wondering where he finds this code. That's all.
