Warming Drawer Heat Transfer


  • Countertop above Warming Drawer is hot
  • Is it normal for the cabinet next to or above a Warming Drawer to be warm or hot to the touch?


Adjacent cabinetry or countertops near a Warming Drawer could potentially be warm, but should not be hot to the touch. Factors such as the countertop thickness, countertop material, and other environmental considerations could contribute to the warmth being felt.

If the countertop temperature seems excessive, the unit's performance is affected, or the unit's door handle is hot, contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
