Default Upper oven is leaking hot air
Model Number: KEBC208KSS02   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hello,

Some History for this question.
During the cleaning cycle yesterday for the upper oven, the oven completely quit with no lights or anything on the control panel. After some research on this excellent forum and help from Gene, I determined that the Control Panel Fuse likely blew and so I have ordered another one.

In trying to figure out why this happened though and have noticed recently that there seems to be hot air escaping from the oven. This hot air is causing the control panel to steam up during oven use. This happening right by the air intake to the left of center. The air intake or snorkel as some have called it is what allows cool air from the room to be circulated into the cabinet so that the unit does not overheat.

So the question is, how to I resolve the issue of the hot air coming up out of the oven, Do I need to replace the Gasket, is there a way to verify that this is actually leaking?

Upon visual inspection, there are no burn marks around the gasket, or rips etc. The gasket visually looks fine.

Thanks for any help.

Todd.
