Panel cover

How do you get the cover off the outside for the stove vent? It has two black plastic pieces. BTW it's a 2013 X23B.

On my 2016,you pull up in the two tabs at the bottom to free it. It was kind of tight to pull open. You do not remove it. It swings on a hinge connected to the top of the cover. Not sure if your 2013 is different.

Good point. I just assumed the OP was talking about the hood vent when plastic was mentioned.. Maybe not though.

With a great deal of effort, some cursing, and some fear of breaking it. Mine is very difficult to get off but I use my thumbs pushing up and out to unclip the two little plastics clips. It then swings out a little.

Cheers

Make sure little pitchers aren't around to hear the verbiage as you attempt to open it. Push up on the two tabs until your fingers bleed while exerting a bit of outward force.

Once I opened mine when the rig was new last year, I never completely closed them again for fear that I'd break the tabs or worse, crack the entire cover. At the end of the season I pushed the cover in w/o the tabs completely locking. It was fine over the off season and easy to pry free this spring..

If the OP is indeed talking about the stove hood vent cover, you need to unclip the bottom of it (outside) so it swings free. The force of the hood fan will swing it open by pushing air through it when turned on.

I found a bees nest in the hot water heater area and wanted to check that area out as well. However, if it's that hard to get off I might not bother then....thoughts on checking the area out?

Oh, so you meant fully remove it! That's a bit different, and really shouldn't be necessary. On most units the vent is directly behind the hood fan. If you pull the filter element from the inside and shine a light past the fan, you should be able to pretty much see the other side of the flap.

I'm fairly certain that if you had a nest inside, you would know. The bees would be as likely to come inside as to go out. We had a wasps nest in our home bathroom vent, and my first clue was all the wasps flying around the bathroom.

Sounds like a good use of that $20 or so camera that someone mentioned they got from Amazon.
