    Default Hot stove top

    Roper
    Model - fep310vq0

    When I turn this stove on Hi Broil and let it heat up for quite some time, the top gets too hot to hold my hand on it. Is this normal. The vent seems to be venting like it should.

    This stove did not have insulation in the door. I took an insulation blanket and used some of it in the door. If this is not the proper insulation, too much, etc., could it cause the top to get hot like this, or is it normal?

    Seems like I remember some of the coil element type stoves getting very hot when in use.

    G'day,

    When I turn this stove on Hi Broil and let it heat up for quite some time, the top gets too hot to hold my hand on it
    Door open in the broil position?

    A copy:


    When manufactured, gas and electric cooking appliances must meet minimum surface temperature requirements as set forth by UL and AGA (in the case of gas). Here is how they are tested and the requirements they must meet.

    Product must be undamaged, correctly assembled and have the correct oven temperature.

    All skin temperatures are based on a room temperature of 77?F (25?C) and a set oven temperature of 400?F.

    Oven must be cycling at 400?F (204?C) for one hour before test is conducted.

    Pyrometer (temperature meter) must be of high quality and properly calibrated.

    An increase or decrease of 1?F in the ambient room temperature, will allow a 1?F increase or decrease in the maximum allowable surface temperature of the range.

    Side Panel, Painted 152?F (67?C)
    Side Panel, Porcelain 160?F (71?C)

    Oven Door, Painted 152?F (67?C)
    Oven Door, Porcelain 160?F (71?C)
    Oven Door, Glass 172?F (78?C)

    Warmer Drawer, Painted 152?F (67?C)
    Warmer Drawer, Porcelain 160?F (71?C)

    Cooktop No Temperature Limits Apply
    Lower Console No Temperature Limits Apply
    Oven Vent Area No Temperature Limits Apply

    Knob and handle temperatures on electric and gas ranges (including self clean cycle) are allowed to be up to 167?F (75?C) for plastic or plastic coated metal and 131?F (55?C) for metal. The dial or skirt may be up to 20 degrees hotter.

    Knob and handle temperatures on electric self cleaning ranges during the clean cycle are allowed to be up to 182?F (83?C) for plastic or plastic coated metal and 152?F (67?C) for metal. The dial or skirt should not exceed these temperatures.

    This stove did not have insulation in the door
    The parts break down shows it has or was suppose to have insulation...

    Any high temp insulation should do fine.

    I guess it is good to go then.

    What is the purpose of the venting at the bottom of the door? The door s full of insulation, can'e see how it can vent very much if any.

    Thanks Jeff

    P.S. Sorry, the door was shut while I had it on Hi Broil.

    Normally the bottom of the door would allow air flow in and the air flows through the door and out the top to help keep the outer panel as cool as possible....but you are correct, on some doors with no glass or such the vent is non-functioning.

    Yupper.

    Should be open in broil position....heat rises and trapping the broil heat in probably allowed the top to get a little hotter than normal as heat rises up.

    Nope...

    Close the door to the broil stop position to ensure proper broiling temperature.

    Page 5 in the manual.

    I have never heard of this. Is this just for certain stoves? Talk about getting in the kitchen!! In Alabama too! Not sure I understand this.

    Some have temperature controlled broils now that we can keep the door closed....but for many many years the broil was used with the door slightly open in the "broil position".....my range has the broil position for broiling....and it is an approx 10 year old Frigidaire.

    Meant 'talk about getting hot in the kitchen'.

    Live and learn.
    I thought the temp/stat probe would control the heat even though heat rises.

    Most broil setting are moving the temp dial all the way into a broil position, past any normal temp settings.
