Convection Oven Gets Cabinets Super Hot

We cooked a chicken dish and the cabinets got so hot I thought the panels would be damaged. Opened all the doors to vent it but still really hot. Has anyone had this issue or have any fixes? Additional insulation perhaps?

I'm not familiar with the convection oven installation on an Interstate, but on my rig the mounting frame has vents both below and above the oven. The cabinet around it has a generous space between it and the oven. My cabinets still get fairly warm, but not hot. I would not add insulation around the oven.

Do NOT add insulation to the oven! The microwave/convection oven vents heat inside the galley cabinet, and insulation would block the vents, causing the oven itself to overheat.

You might add insulation to the surfaces that get hottest inside the cabinet, but not to the oven itself. Prodex is probably your best bet for this, since it has maximum R-value for least bulk and will not use up all of the air space inside the cabinet that you need for appliance ventilation.

We do not have an Interstate, but a Sport 22FB. We have the same problem. We leave the cabinet door ajar and put a small electric clip-on fan on the ledge to help disperse the hear.

Our countertop gets super hot when we run ours. It's an after market installed by PO, but everything seems OK. Not sure why...

We have a similar problem. The original convection oven installed by Airstream was a piece of garbage. It was replaced by the dealer with a Panasonic Genius. it is an older model but we werer familiar with Panasonic. I was concerned when we started out in early May this year but now we are in Victoria BC Canada and it is quite a bit cooler so we welcome any spare heat.
I would not insulate in your case (Texas) but try to ventilate the space from the other cabinets on each side. I am still considering drilling holes in the side walls of the cabinets on either side. I have the kitchen sink cabinet on the left and a set of drawers on the right. I even considered installing a fan from a computer or similar 12 volt fan.
hope this helps

happy trails Norrie
