Steam is coming off of the back right burner when oven is on

In order for the oven to work air must circulate. You may have noticed the door seal does not meet at the bottom. Air enters there and exits the chimney located in the console area. Hot air meets cooler surfaces equals condensation. Some foods have more moisture than others.

    i have the same problem but it has gotten worse. it is no longer a little bit of heat but full steam that could burn you. i have had this stove for ten years. this problem is about six months old now. how can it be fixed?
    i understand the meeting of cold and hot will cause condensation but if that were true why is it only on one burner? that sort of contradicts the cold meets hot theory.

I have a Belling DB4 90Ei Cooker and I have noticed a hole in the back of each oven. Why is this ( top left hand corner of photo/oven)


Oh that one. It is the vent to the warming section of the hob, or a vent to the top under a burner. It releases steam from the oven cavity.

You could have clicked COMMENT to my last reply :>)

I had a pot of water bowling on the right burner. Steam came up while the microwave was running. I heard some popping noise and now the microwave will not heat. What do I need to do?


Call a repairman. Seriously, it may be a thermal fuse located on the bottom of the microwave oven, or the steam and moisture may have gotten into and damaged the control board. You MIGHT try unpluggin the microwave oven for a day, (for the moisture to dry out), and then plug it back in and try it again, but if that fails, then you've got problems.

Water coming out oven no steam and it will not get to tempeture


If your oven isn't reaching temperature you will not get steam. Turn the oven on and verify that the oven is calling for heat by looking in the temperature window next to the arrow that says "heat" or "on," if the set temperature is 5 degrees higher than the actual temperature there should be a small red dot next to the arrow. Then observe the burner, does the exhaust fan come on, can you see the ignitor glowing, does the burner light, does it stay lit or go out after 4 seconds? You could have a dirty flame sensor, the small rod with a wire attached to it at the top of the burner, remove the flame sensor and clean it with a cloth, wire brush, or emory cloth.

SET DIGITAL THERMOSTAT TO SAY 350 DEGREES WILL NOT TURN ON OVEN,,, ? IF I SET TO BROIL BROIL WORKS BUT OVEN WILL NOT TURN ON ?


Possibly the ignitor for the main oven burner has failed--

An observation question:

When the Broiler 'lights' and comes on, do you notice the ignitor glowing bright, before the gas valve (to the Broiler) opens, and you get the Broiler lighting---

Now-- for the main burner to come on, -- there has to be a similar bright glow from the MAIN BURNER ignitor, before its main burner gas valve can open-- No Ignitor?-- No ignition, and not Main Oven burner!

Let me know what you need from this point on --

We had the oven on, and steam came from area behind the back right burner. Food burned a little bit.


Hello- Oven vent exits this area. Very hot exhaust - you will see smoke and or steam when sumpthin burns. Scrape and clean spills w/water. Avoid 'self-clean' function- NOT healthy for ANY range-no matter what the salesman said. - Hope this helps- ED

Oven and coil burners work one time then the next time neither one warms up, try again later and it works again. started last week when the oven preheated put in food to cook and half hour later noticed...


If this is an electric range, it sounds like you are not geting 220v all the time. check were your cord or house power hooks up to range. You may find one side of the 220 line burnt. Shut off power and repair conections. or call a qulified tech.

How do you light a gas oven


Chances are your hot surface ignitor is bad. Take off the bottom panel inside the oven you will have to removes grills also. You will see a center beam under the panel that is where the flames of your burner are. The hot surface ignitor is right there at the start of the burners. As a test turn the oven on and notice it hot surface ignitor glows. If it didn't glow then it needs to be replaced. Easy fix only held on by two small screws 1/4 size nut runner and two wires. You will have to cut the wires as they run back into the back of the oven. The new one just take the wire nuts that come with it and attach. Don't make the wires too short as you will need the length. let me know how it goes ken
