  • Publication number: 20200300479
    Abstract: A cooking appliance that uses steam to heat a food item includes a cooking chamber; a steam generator that generates steam to heat the food item; a heating element that generates heat to heat the food item; an outlet that fluidly connects the cooking chamber to a first external environment outside of the cooking chamber; and an active inlet that fluidly connects the cooking chamber to a second external environment outside of the cooking chamber. The active inlet has a blocking member that prevents a fluid from the second external environment from entering the cooking chamber though the active inlet, and an actuator that moves the blocking member between a closed position in which the blocking member prevents the fluid from entering the cooking chamber through the active inlet, and an open position in which the blocking member allows the fluid to enter the cooking chamber through the active inlet.

  • Patent number: 10408467
    Abstract: A home cooking appliance includes a housing, a cooking compartment in the housing, a flue in the housing and in fluid communication with the cooking compartment for exhausting flue gases from the cooking compartment, an exhaust outlet for exhausting the flue gases from the housing, and a flue boundary connecting the flue and the exhaust outlet, the flue boundary separating flue gases from cooling air flowing through the housing and preventing dilution of flue gases with cooling air. The housing includes a cooling rough-in box having a cooling air flow channel for cooling the rear wall of the flue boundary. The cooling rough-in box includes an opening permitting the cooling air to be drawn into the cooling air flow channel from an exterior of the housing by convection owing to heat on the rear wall of the flue boundary.

  • Patent number: 10317087
    Abstract: A burner assembly for a domestic gas cooktop includes a lower burner mounting structure positioned on a first side of the top sheet; a burner body configured to be positioned on an opposite side of the top sheet, the burner body having an igniter positioning surface; an igniter having an igniter end, and a stop integrally formed in the igniter, the stop having an upper ledge; and an urging member that pushes against the lower burner mounting structure, and urges the igniter in a direction away from the lower burner mounting structure and toward the igniter positioning surface such that the upper ledge of the stop is urged into contact with the igniter positioning surface when the burner assembly is in an assembled condition. The igniter is held in an operating position by the burner body and the urging member when the burner assembly is in use.
