Kenmore oven blows hot air out at top

A lot of hot air is coming out what appears to be a vent. The oven seems to be having trouble staying at temperature, and the amount of air coming out seems to be more than should be necessary for a simple vent.

The hot air is supposed to come out so you can heat other things. If the oven is loosing heat, try to see if vent has flap, or test the temp sensor

New Kenmore elite range blows cold air from oven vent when top burners are on. Is this normal


That sounds a bit unusual.... Does the fan come on when you turn on the oven on bake? How about on broil? How about on self-clean. If it comes on in all those settings, then it may be working as designed. If NOT, they there may be a crossed wire, or you may have a malfunctioning control.

I would suspect faulty gas valve solenoids. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the valves to permit gas flow. It's recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time. They will most likely come as a set from the parts supplier. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

MY DRYER GETS HOT ON TOP OF THE DRYER (KENMORE) COULD IT BE THE VENT?


start dryer, go outside and see if vent is blowing hot air. If not then vent is clogged with lint, esp if vent has a curve or elbow in it. unhook vent at dryer or os vent and run a vacumn hose in as far as you can. easy way to determine if vent is to unhook at dryer and see if dryer blows air, could be just inside at vent opening

Exhaust fan doesn't work and blows air from top vent


Some microwaves have a adjustable fan. We have one that you can vent out the back, the back top or through the front top filters. The latter is what it sounds like you have. If you take the small back panel off and lift out the fan motor you'll see that you can place it in the direction you like.\\

Kenmore dryer model 41780042990


sounde like you have a clogged vent line be shure the vent hose is not cinked in any waty that would restrict the air flow. Next turn the dryer on and make sure you and a good flow of air out side the house if the air is not blowing out the vent out side you will need to clean this out or have it cleaned.

How does the vent work?


Under cabinet microwaves generally have two configurations for venting.
1) There is a vent cover plate on the top or rear (sometimes both) of the unit that can be removed and connected to a duct that vents up to the roof. If you do not have such a duct installed then that cover plate should be left on the unit so that it vents in configuration 2.
2) With the external venting ports sealed with the cover plate(s) the microwave simple draws air from the bottom (usually through 1 or 2 grease capture screens) and vents it out thought the front/top of the unit. This configuration isn't very useful as it just blows the air back into the kitchen. Many people don't both using the microwaves blower in this configuration.

Hole underneath back left burner?


It is your oven vent. It needs to be left open. There could be a calibration issue with your cooking times. Check the accuracy of your thermostat with an oven thermometer.
