Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

So the vent on this new oven is designed to either go down through the floor or out through the back wall. As long as the hole doesn't line up with the blower motor itself, you can connect a flex vent and route the vent down through your front left hole although I will tell you that the blower motor is mounted under the oven toward the center somewhat to the left so this may be a bit of an issue and the hole may need to be moved in your kitchen floor if the blower motor is in the way of the venting.

How do I get the old one out?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 4 months ago.

You remove the bottom access panel below the oven door and then you reach under to remove the clamps holding the vent onto the bottom of the oven. Once you disconnect the vent, unplug the oven if you can underneath and then just pull the oven forward. If you couldn't reach the power cord underneath then pull the oven forward and then unplug it.
