Remove the motor together with the blower wheel, go to the local self service car-wash and use the engine de-greaser cycle (if not available, buy a can at the auto supply, spray the fan blade and let sit for a while) and get all the grease of the fan blades. make sure the fan blades are cleaned thoroughly. the fan will now ran quietly and will remove all the grease away. in the future, clean the filters often.

I have a" Nautilus Microtek


The motor is getting worn to the point it will stop soon. Remove the screen and you find the fan/motor directly behind it. You can try to put some machine oil on the motor shaft next to the motor housing. It may quieten it some. Recommend you replace it. Be sure you disconnect power before you do anything else. The motors and fan assembly is small in size and can be bought in Home Depot or an appliance store. If you need assistance in removing the motor/fan and installing new one, please let me know. Those brands are found at Home Depot.

Ge JVB67 downdraft was stuck - didn't come up. Now, when plugged in, the motor "runs" constantly and vent will not rise.


you will have to disassemble the mechanical area to get to the moving parts and also clean and lubricate the telescoping parts with WD-40.

The blower motor hums but does not move/work. When I give the motor/fan a little push with hand it starts working. A day or two later it is back to the same situation where it hums and needs a push.


The little fan is going out.you can disconnect the power to it,and remove it,to see if you can clean it,then it might start working,do not oil it,it will catch fire,but I suggest to replace it.I hope this is helpful,if so,please let us know,thank you.

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.

Feel free contact me again!
