You need to check the most suitable cabinet in which to fit your wall oven. This is generally a floor to ceiling cabinet. It also needs to be near the gas supply (if you use mains gas) and have an electrical socket to plug it into.
Make sure the wall cabinet you want to use is perfectly level. Before attempting to install the wall oven read the manufacturers installations instructions carefully and follow these exactly. If you have ANY DOUBTS call in a qualified electrician or gas fitter.
Turn off the electrical power supply in your home at the mains before beginning work. If your oven is a gas oven then also turn off the gas supply. Mark both with a Post It note to tell others that you are working with the electrics and or gas. This will save anyone from accidentally turning these on while you are working.
Remove the oven from the packaging and remove the doors and all accessories inside the oven, such as the trays. Put these to one side and out of the way where you are working.

Carefully slide the oven into the cabinet and make sure the wires and gas pipes do not crimp.
Slide the oven in until the oven trim is flush with the front of the cabinet. Once in place use the fixings to screw the oven in place and secure it.
Replace all the oven accessories, such as trays and racks.
