Stove glass top warm when using oven

Hi, we have a glasstop Whirlpool range. When we use the oven, the stovetop is getting overly warm. I would expect some warmth but it seems like it is getting worse. Any thoughts?

Any ability to measure what temperature it is compared to the oven temp?

Where is the top getting warm? Is it just over one of the stove elements like the element is on? Is the entire top warm like heat escaping from the oven?

The heat is consistent, over the whole glasstop. Not localized. To the other responder I will try to measure the temp if I can find an appropriate thermometer.
