Just had a new KitchenAid double wall oven installed in kitchen remodel. The bottom vent seems to vent downward and heats up the bottom cabinet and cabinet pull. Is this a design flaw or an installation issue?

Is there an outside vent? Some of those built in ovens are designed to be a flush mount and some are not. Do you know if that one was flush mount design? Who installed it?

It is flush mount but the vent sticks out about half inch so air goes down

If you don’t think it’s working right call Whirlpool. Everything is covered for the first year.
