  • Publication number: 20220356624
    Abstract: A laundry appliance includes a tub contained within an outer cabinet. A motor assembly is attached to the tub having a first rotor and a second rotor that operate about a common rotational axis. A drum is disposed within the tub and coupled with the first rotor to rotationally operable about the common rotational axis. A blower is coupled to the second rotor and disposed within the tub to rotationally operate about the common rotational axis to deliver process air through an airflow path that includes a processing space defined within the drum. The blower is positioned within a blower housing that is positioned between the tub and the drum.

  • Publication number: 20220090796
    Abstract: A cooking appliance includes a housing having a heating cavity defined therein, wherein a heat source is in thermal communication with the heating cavity. A cooling channel is disposed proximate a sidewall of the housing. A blower selectively operates to move at least cooling air through the cooling channel and to an air outlet. A vent aperture extends through the sidewall between the heating cavity and a ventilation channel. The ventilation channel includes a narrowed portion proximate the vent aperture, wherein during operation of the blower, the narrowed portion defines a low static pressure region of the ventilation channel that draws cavity air from the heating cavity and directs the cavity air into the ventilation channel to be combined with the cooling air.

  • Patent number: 11137145
    Abstract: A cooking appliance includes a housing having a sidewall and a front panel, wherein a heating cavity is defined within the housing. An operable door panel is rotationally coupled proximate the front panel and operable to provide selective access to the heating cavity via an aperture defined within the front panel. A heat source is in thermal communication with the heating cavity and the front panel. A blower is disposed within an interstitial space at least partially defined by an outer surface of the housing. A ventilation tower is attached to the sidewall and positioned proximate the front panel. Selective operation of the blower draws ventilation air from an external region proximate the front panel and into the interstitial space via the ventilation tower.
