Gas Free-Standing Ranges - Oven Vent Location
Ranges have an oven vent to help vent hot air and steam while cooking in the oven. The oven vents out of the center of the backsplash area, underneath the control panel. This will cause that area of your cooktop to feel very warm.Because the air can carry a small amount of grease, the vent area should be cleaned regularly.
Clean with soap and water
Vinegar and water
Do not use commercial oven cleaners, cleaning powders, steel wool or harsh abrasives.
