SOURCE: We bought a Kenmore gas

I know exactly what you mean. have the same unit as you do. Mechanically there is nothing you can do. It is how it was engineered and was engineered that way for a purpose.

I also have many customers who have complained about the vent also.

What we do (if you have one) is turn on the microwave fan that is over head of the range. It then
sucks up the heat and vents it out.

But as far as doing anything with the vent I strongly recommend not altering the unit at all.

Sorry.....

Keith

Why does the control panel on my Whirlpool electric range get too hot to touch when oven is operating at 350 degrees?


heat transference and radiated heat at that temp is normal

the stove should have an air gap between unit and wall
not pushed up against the wall
and internally insulated

check to see if your whirlpool model oven ever had a safety recall 26301150-vpuqtjtdvoowntuyvcl35auo-4-0.jpg

Difference between a convection oven and a conventional oven


<span>A convection oven is equipped with a fan to speed the circulation of heat around the food, thus cooking it faster and more evenly than conventional ovens. <br /><br />Conventional ovens rely on radiant heat that rises from the bottom up to the top of the oven. Convection ovens cook foods approximately 25% faster than conventional ovens, and the oven temperature can be reduced by 25&deg;F for most foods. <br /><br />No special cookware is required. Just like conventional ovens, convection ovens can be gas- or electrically-heated. As with any major appliance, it is always best to carefully read the manufacturer's guidelines and instructions for operating the oven.</span>

PLES389DCB -- I have one of these too. The fan runs until the oven is almost ambient temperature. It seems to be normal operation for this unit.

Vent below clock puts out alot of heat


Hi,
That is the oven vent and it will throw alot of heat when the oven is on... that is very normal operation...the oven needs to be vented to for various reasons...

This can be a great benefit in the winter time but is very uncomfortable in the summer...so limit the summer use and use it like crazy in the winter...

Electrolux built in wall oven, lights and digital display work fine, fan works fine, but the oven will not heat regardless of the mode (broil, bake, convention roast, convection bake)


Hello stevefer
Welcome.

You said, Your Electrolux built in wall oven, lights and digital display work fine, fan works fine, but the oven will not heat regardless of the mode (broil, bake, convention roast, convection bake)

First,
1.What is the Model Number and the year of your wall oven?
2.Did the oven light up and display with any error codes?
3. Did you try to turn the breaker off for 5 minutes to see if this will reset the system?

Perhaps the heating element is failing and may need to be replaced.
I will be able to better assist you when you reply with this information.
Waiting your response.
