2" gap behind freestanding gas range?

November 3, 2014

There is a 2 inch gap behind my newly installed GE cafe range and the wall. The range is pushed all the way to the gas pipe stub. It seems like an awfully big gap for a freestanding range, and I am afraid of things falling back there. The gas stub is located directly in the center of the 30 inch space. The installation manual shows the location of the pipe stub to be within 2 inches of the wall, which mine appears to be. The stove seems to stand a bit proud of the cabinet, but not excessively so. Does this look normal to you?
