Hi absimp,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You are having trouble cleaning your downdraft hood...you are able to remove filters and clean but there seems to be grease build on the hood as well....The smell is really bad but you can't get down in the hood to clean. Is there anyway to remove the hood in order to clean it better??

The short answer is; not really. But don't be dicouraged yet, you shouldn't have to . There is a brush on a long handle that looks like the kind of brush you would use to wash a glass. I wrap the brush part with a small cloth that is wet with cleaner and just use from above rinsing the cloth as nessessary. If you have trouble finding a brush long enough just go to a plumbing supply and buy a brush made for cleaning the soot out of a boiler. If they know your problem they weill be happy to help.

The filters on our viking hood keep falling out. Seems like when a little grease builds up on the ledge of the hood the filter comes crashing down on the stove. Anyone else having this issue? Better yet...


I'm having the same problem, and I'm fed up. One of these days the filter is going to fall into a boiling pot and potentially seriously injuring someone. I'm surprised this isn't a recall issue with these hoods. I've temporarily fixed it by applying exhaust muffler tape to the filter and hood where it rests ( on the area closest to the wall). This is a temporary fix, however. I do plan on taking this serious problem up with Viking. This is a serious design flaw that can be potentially very dangerous.

Kitchen Aid downdraft hood stuck in retracted position


The filters need to be seated properly to complete an electrical safety circuit. This keeps the unit from operating without the filters. The best way I have found to fix them when they get dislodged in the closed position is by using two spatulas. The first is used to move the filter forward a bit and the second is used to keep it pushed tightly forward to complete the circuit.

Some range hoods do contain a light filter material to prevent grease entering the fan. It can (and should be) cleaned regularly by hand in warm soapy water. Allow to dry and replace.

I am trying to remove the filter from a tappan range hood model HD1442I I see clips on each side of the filter but they don't want to move.


They are more than likely stuck from grease take a butter knife and slid it between the hood and the screen and break the grease seal all around the screen then try removing it by pulling on the tabs at the same time in one direction away from the frame it should come out. You can go to Wal Mart and buy Super clean to clean the grease out of it and the hood as well. Be sure to wear rubber gloves when using the super clean, it's in the automotive section if yo have a spray bottle you can buy the gallon jug it's like $7.00 for a gallon and $4.99 for 10 oz. spray bottle and I use it on everything cars stoves washing machines and any appliance that needs cleaned it is a very powerful cleaner. Hope this helps, if this does not do the trick let me know and I will give ya some more advice but pretty sure it's just the spattered grease holding it in place. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.
