Hi. It is always better to have a little space between unit and cabinet. They do get very hot. If no space between, you will feel it on the cabinet. Let me look and see if I can find installation instructions.

Thanks looking for suggestions.

The oven sits flush against the cabinet face, see the installation manual attached. Is it the face of the cabinet that it hot?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
It’s the left side

Does the door seem to be shutting well to seal the oven?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
The top door does not sit flush

It sounds like the hinges may be a bent and not holding the door tightly enough to seal. If you open the door all the way, does it lay flat or slope down a bit? Placing a clear glass with water on the open door makes it easy to tell.

Took the doors will reinstall and let you know

Thank you.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Water is level

If you close the door, can you push it tight at the top or is it already tight?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Top door can be pushed bottom door is flush

Okay, so the hinges will need to be replaced. The door is not sealing as it should be, that is why it is getting hot around the door. I can get you replacement instructions, if you'd like.

Looking to see how the Viking double oven vents.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
On the double oven it vents out from the bottom. I guess that vent cannot have trim on the outside of the cabinet

Oh, no, you cannot block the air path at all. Did you install trim down there?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No

Okay, so if the fan is running the issue is with the door not sealing well. I would proceed with hinge replacement.
