Defy slimline eyelevel oven installed in cupboard.


Assuming it is an electric built in or built under oven, these are commonly fitted into a dedicated cupboard (oven housing) that matches the other kitchen units and typically little or no facility for ventilation is provided.
Electric ovens are usually so well insulated and covered with reflective foil the need for ventilation is minimal, especially when a standard size oven is fitted into the correct standard sized housing as it will provide an air-space of an inch or more all around.

It can be expected the housing near the top of the oven will become warm after a while and the shelf above likely to become warm enough to soften a candle but if it gets hot enough to actually melt a candle I think that is rather too hot. The addition of additional insulation and reflective material should improve matters greatly.

I suggest you approach the guy who fitted the oven if it was professionally fitted. It would have been his responsibility to only fit a suitable appliance and if additional ventilation was required he should have advised you.

I believe I have seen some oven housings with a slim grille over the oven and it is probable there would have also been a slot cut at the rear and perhaps a short piece of trunking to carry warm air away from the space directly above the oven.

Why is hot air coming out of the top of my oven


If you have a gas range they will vent the heat from the oven out the top by the rear panel. If an electric they will generally vent through one of the rear burners. I am sure that this is normal.

The grill gets hot but doesn't brown the food?


Normally, if a grill element fails, it just stops working. So if they are working then on full power, both elements should get red hot! If this is the case, all I suggest is that you try experimenting with different heights with the grill tray. And by the way, don't shut the door when you are grilling as this shuts the grill off!

When i use the oven it stays hot after turned off. front panel, right under the touch buttons gets very hot.


This oven has an oven vent that comes out under the control panel usually to the right. Very poor design as this vents heat into the controls and can cause a control board failure, especially during a self cleaning cycle. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

On a Amana EvenAir convection Plus oven the convection blower comes on during the regular bake cycle.


There is a blower on the top of the oven, which turns on when the oven is hot enough. If the warm/hot air is coming out from top vent corners - this is the blower working. Even if you turn the oven off at that moment, the blower will still work until the oven cools down. This is normal.

Stove top hot when oven on


There is a vent tube that generally goes up to a back burner where you can use it for keeping something warm. There may be a problem with that tube falling out??? and all the heat is venting to under the stove top. Look fer it

Griller on simpson harmony nova oven


In my experience, it is normal to leave the the door open when grilling, otherwise it is liable to cause the bakelite handle of the grilling pan to get very hot, and possibly melt or catch fire, and make it to hot to hold the handle.
Plz rate my solution.

Thanks.

Burn mark


Most likely the brown stain will NOT come off, if the stain comes off the paint will come with it. Replacing the control panel is the option for making it look good again. Sorry to bring bad news.

Too hot


first thing is to check if it is front vented or rear vented, if it is front vented you will find warm air blowing out above the door. if not it is rear vented and must have a flu installed behind unit.
