Oven front panel / door gets hot

 

It is natural for the heat generated in the oven to spread to all parts of the appliance, which includes the parts normally touched during everyday use. The temperature feels different depending on the material. For instance, glass and metal feel hotter to the touch than plastic.

  • The front panel also heats up every time the oven door is opened, as the heat from the oven raises the temperature of the panel.
  • Keep in mind that the temperature rises over time. In other words, the longer the oven is switched on, the hotter all the parts of the appliance become.
  • The temperature of the front panel can be up to 60 °C higher than the room temperature. For instance, with a room temperature of 20 °C, the panel may be 80 °C hot.
  • In the case of the oven’s glass panel, the temperature can be up to 65 °C higher than the room temperature. For instance, with a room temperature of 20 °C, the glass panel may be 85 °C hot.

Warning: For safety reasons, children should not stand close to the oven / cooker when it is in use. Refer to the user manual. (If you do not have your user manual, refer to Where can I find the user manual for my appliance?).
