Installing Wall Oven Please Help

Replacing GE electric wall oven with a new GE electric wall oven. Model PK7000DF. Instructions call for placing the junction box in the rear upper right corner of the cut out cavity. My current junction box
is in the rear lower left corner of the cavity.
Do I need to move the existing junction box? Please
advise.

Welcome to the forums.

It usually depends on what comes with the oven for electrical connection and where it comes out of the unit. Based on the setup diagram.....yes... the connection point must be in the upper right corner.

You will probably need to move the cable. The oven is 23.5 deep and the cabinet should be 24 deep. That only gives you a 1/2" and the oven whip needs a 90 flex elbow into the box.

It might work as is IF the box is at the very far left bottom and the cabinet width allows you to drape the whip down the left side "channel". There will be a small void between the oven side and the cabinet left side if you get lucky.
I would guess the oven is being installed in a 30" W cabinet.
