Gas Range Door Vent


  • Why is the door on a R or GR Series Gas Range vented, slotted, open?
  • What is the purpose of venting the door on an R or GR Range?
  • Can the vents or slots on a R or GR door be covered or filled in?


The door on the R and GR Series Gas Range is vented to assist in cooling the door and to reduce fogging of the glass pack.

  • The vent should not be covered or filled; doing so may cause permanent damage to the unit, which would not be covered by warranty.
