Stove top vent hole hack

vent on top of stove facts

Our new stove seemed to have a problem with leaking smoke and heat out of the top right burner in the back. After a few minutes of research we found out this is normal and all stoves have this vent hole to prevent explosions, but our old one never seemed to leak any smoke.

It only took about 10 minutes to take the old grid thing out and make room for it in the new vent hole, which seems to have stopped the leaking smoke problem.
