What is the best way to clean the air vents in the ovens? I haven't found a vacuum attachment that's thin enough to fit through. Additionally, I think if I unscrew the front panel, I'm going to run into control panel problems. Any help is appreciated!

Good Morning Suzi - Generally,
qualified technicians often perform complicated part replacement such as this,
however this may or may not be specifically for your model. Below are generic instructions
that I found on how to take your oven door apart to remove any stains that may
be caught down in the door vents.
needed: Phillips head screwdriver or small quad bit driver.
A. Open Door remove 2 screws and washers on door lining at door hinge area.
B. Refer to owners guide with door in broil stop position lift door assembly
C. Lay door on table, position so that handle hangs freely over edge of table
D. Remove 2 screws and washers that secure handle to lining assembly.
E. Remove 8 screws that attach textured steel door wrapper trim to lining
assembly 3 at top, 3 at bottom, 1 on each side
F. Lift door lining up and out of wrapper trim assembly.
G. Lay lining assembly on table with wool shield/inner part of lining facing
H. Remove 2 glass clamps via 2 screws per clamp. These clamps attach innermost
clear glass to wool shield.
I. Lift out center clear glass from wool shield, this glass just lays onto the
wool shield and is held in place by the glass/ clamps in item H.
J. Clean each glass with appropriate cleaner, Windex, bon ami, fantastic, etc
K. One glass that remains in door lining assembly can at this time be cleaned
without further disassembly the lining assembly.
the yellowish "staining" is a result of a bad seal. Since it is heat changing the color of the surface, you would probably have to do some damage to remove the discoloration, either like a soft abrasive scrub or other, bleach will not fix that. Sounds like the cleaning cycle could be too long or otherwise too hot for too long? Perhaps a wipe down with a damp cloth to the interior of the oven prior to a self clean to remove any loose material may help.. Also if there are any other vents for this oven (say under one of the burners of the stove top) make sure they are kept free and clear of any blockage of air flow.. Best regards Ck
When the oven gets dirty and you don't run the clean cycle, dirt builds up and burns away the hotter the oven gets. Run the clean cycle if you have a self clean mode on the oven. throw the metal burner and grates in the oven too. (no plastic) open a window because it will stink and it takes a few hours to run. If not, use oven cleaner then run the oven to the hottest temp for at least 1-2 hours to burn the old dirt out..
Good Luck, Bill
if its electric its hard wired to your home power 220v black(hot 120v) white(neutral) red(hot 120v) green (ground) You should wire the new oven the same way as the old oven (Shut off power before any thing)Make all wire conections clean and tight with a wire nut. wrap each with ele tape.
Had the same problem. How I fixed it, was by using a very thin, and I mean really thin, flat tip screw driver and a flash light. Unplug the stove. Use the flash light to look at the very top of the oven door. You should see in the air vent slats a silver hook. Use the screw driver to go through the vent slats and push the lock open. Now, you should be able to open your door. But we arent done yet. With the door open, plug the stove back in. Close the door and wait for the F9 to flash. Now open your door, and on the right side you should see a tiny peg sticking out on the open oven. Its for the light to come on when the oven door is open and also to let the oven know the door is ajar. Push it in and wait. The door latch circuit should reset like normal, and you will see the latch move back into its normal open position. Which resets the F9 error and allows you once again to use your oven like normal.
No you don't need to vent outdoors, and YES all you need is a electrical supply.
**I will add however, allow for an air cushion around the unit when it's installed in the wall as well as a vent or small gap with maybe a custom grill at the top. One of the most common service calls I get for self clean built in ovens is reseting or replacing safety thermostat's.
Hope that helps
Good Luck :)
Air intake needs adjustment. Remove bottom drawer, there is a gas valve and the burner attached to it. Loosen small screw on the burner and turn the air baffle to let more/less air in. If not sure what you're doing - call a repairman. Also make sure not to cover any vents on the oven bottom with foil, as some usually do. It also can be that the burner holes need cleaning
EUREKA! I found the reset button and my oven is heating as we speak. Ok, open the oven door. there is a thin panel with vents right at the door latch. Unscrew the (6) screws and pull off the panel. There is a red button on the left back behind the wiring. GOOD LUCK!
