Control Panel Surface Temperature


  • Should the control panel on either Wall Oven or Dual Fuel Range radiate heat?
  • Is it normal for a control panel on a Wall Oven or Dual Fuel to be warm when the unit is off?
  • Dual Fuel, L Series, E Series, or M Series Wall Oven control panel is warm when the unit is not turned on
  • Control panel heats up when not in use


The control panel on a Dual Fuel, L Series, E Series, or M Series Oven can be warm when off due to the electronic controls.

  • It is possible for it to be warm to the touch if the unit is on for an extended period of time (1-2 hours). However, the control panel should not be so hot that it is uncomfortable to touch.
  • If the oven was on, it can take a while for the interior cavity as well as the exterior components to cool down.
  • It is normal for the control panel to be warm when the oven is in use.
