Oven vent location

The oven vent is located under the left side of the control panel
2). When the oven is on, warm air passes through this
vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the
oven and good baking results. Steam or moisture may appear
near the oven vent, this is normal. Do not block oven vent.
Figure 2: Oven vent
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using
the oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior and oven
racks will become very hot which can cause burns.
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil to
line the oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended
in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in
risk of electric shock or fire. Do not line the oven walls, racks,
bottom, or any other part of the oven with aluminum foil. Doing
so will alter heat distribution, produce poor baking results, and
may cause permanent damage to the oven interior. During self
clean temperatures, the oven will be hot enough to melt foil.
