Hotpoint Gas Range
Gas range surface gets really hot when oven is on
It's not unusual for the maintop to get really hot when the oven is on the hot air from the oven is being vented from the back panel. It might just be normal operation but you still should make sure that the flame on your Hotpoint range repair problem is adjusted so that your range is burning properly.
The exterior oven door glass temperature can reach around 160 degrees or so. This can seem pretty warm to the touch, but it's still cool enough for a person to pull their hand away and not get burned.
