<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%" ="bordercolor" align="center" style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; : rgb177, 189, 201; table-layout: fixed; "></table></span>I noticed that our fan vent cover was closed again. I think that sometimes that the spring latches move. So I get a ladder and move the one latch on the cover to let it open while my wife is cooking supper. When I moved the latch the cover didn’t open fully and I know the fan was on high but it just didn’t seem like alot of air coming out through the cover. So as I need to know how things work I opened up the plastic flap to see what was inside and found a second aluminum flap that I noticed was only opening about 1/2'' at the widest point because the hole through the side of the coach where the oven/microwave was located was not centered to the outside cover. What I had to do was take a file and reach up in there and file down the one side about 1/16” to allow the aluminum door to open fully. Now the inside and outside flaps open fully with the fan on. By doing this our oven seems to cool off quicker and you can really feel the difference outside now that I’ved made the adjustment. Just something to double check the next time your are up there.

Thanks to your post, I found mine had the same problem. I used a file to remove 1/8 to 3/16 of the plastic that was keeping it from opening. Now it opens fully. Thanks for sharing that info. Edited by: Willranless

Chuck, sorry if I didn't ask this earlier but is it the microwave or convection microwave that you are speaking about? And what needs mods, the rear of the unit or the trailer's opening?Edited by: 5th_Time

Sorry about that Mike,
We have the Convection/Microwave oven and it’s the flap inside the one you see on the outside. If you were to go up to the outside flap and open it fully and look inside you will see another aluminum flap that I guess is the back of the convection oven. On our’s this aluminum flap was hitting the edge of the hole that was cut through the side wall that the outside vent covers. This must be because of when the factory assembled the kitchen that the oven was not perfectly centered in the hole through the wall. So a little filing on one side and now Both flaps will open fully with the vent fan on where before the inner one was hitting the side not allowing it to open and the outside one opening only about 1/2 way. This made our oven take longer to cool off when you shut it down compared to now now that both flaps open fully and allow much more air to flow freely through these vents.
