Venting for electric range


I have a Jenn-Air electric range with a grill option. Because of this, it has the downdraft vent in the middle on the cooktop. I want to move this stove to my basement and just use it's oven, when needed. My question is, knowing that it is a downdraft model, I believe it can only be vented horizontally or down. In the basement, that would be impossible. Sooooooo, can I run the oven of an electric stove without venting the stove? My concern is that the oven still vents while baking so a vent would be required, but I don't know...
Thanks

No personal experience or knowledge of the jennaire models but I don't think the oven is connected to the venting system.
Even if it does hot air is all you are going to be venting.
Don't you have to turn the vent on separate from the burners anyway?
I suspect there is a way to use both the burners (non-grill units) and the oven without a vent. My electric stove has no venting system.

Venting is optional, to remove smoke from high heat cooking or to not heat up a home in summer. No stove must be vented , plus its extra free heat in winter. It can be vented up with ductwork in the wall. Gee its not even gas, why are you worried.

Agree. The downdraft vent is just there to suck up smoke from the range and has nothing to do with the oven. I have a Jenn-Air range with a similar downdraft and the oven is a seperate unit 6 feet away with no venting.

Oh, not worrying, just wondering. I thought it might be one of those "performance of the oven" things. Thanks to all and your replies.
