Chimney goes up and down on Broan Elite Downdraft

The chimney on my Broan Elite downdraft Model RMD3004EX goes up and down on its own. Could this be electrical noise on the power line triggering the control board? If so what can be done to stop it?

ja_question.gif Why are the oven indicator lights flashing? Answer: When power is first supplied to the appliance, a flashing time will appear on the display.
If a flashing time appears at any other time, a power failure has occurred. Press Cancel, and reset the clock if needed.
When the oven is not in use, the display shows the time of day.
If the indicator lights keep flashing after you have tried to reset the controls, then you may need to contact service person.

You are correct in your assessment that leaving a cracked cooktop in place could present a potential hazard. Are you sure you have the correct model number posted? I ask because I found a JED8430 model number listed at with the glass top, item number 935927, listed for $215. There's also another one listed as item number 948440 for $226. The second glass top also requires 4 corner tapes (item number 696731). Of course, these prices did not include shipping. Something you may consider, though. If this is not your model number, then ignore the previous question.

SOURCE: Jenn-Air Downdraft ducting roof Rack w/flapper

Hi Snowflow,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You are looking for a high quality roof mounted termination vent cap for 8" O.D. round ducting for your Jenn-Air downdraft Stove Top/Convection oven. The reason for the 8" ducting is that you are using insulated stove piping out of the wall of the house into a cold porch then up through the roof. You have come across a Broan Vent Cap that will accommodate 3-1/2" by 10" rectangular ducting and/or 8" O.D. round ducting. The problem with this Broan unit is it has an aluminum flapper that has no counter resistance mechanism to keep from readily flapping open and shut during weather related wind events. Is there something better out there? You found us through a Jenn-Air link. Help!

An 8" B-vent cap should work fine. Can be purchased at any plumbing supply. Just make sure you attach it with screws.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,

Smoke and soot from my pleasant hearth stove

Your chimney must be properly installed above the roof line to prevent downdraft. The soot issue may be cause by burning wood that is too green, not dry enough to burn clean.

Safety is a concern when using a wood stove in your house. Be informed about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors are mandatory by law in some states. Protect yourself and your family.

I have a 50,000 BTU doublesided Cozy wall furnace at my cabin. Recently the pilot keeps going out, I suspect it is caused by a chimney downdraft when I close it up for the week. Can I put a wind...

make sure you have 3 feet of vent pipe out of the roof and you have a UL listed vent cap, if you can re-light the unit all parts are good.

I have a Broan 2736 Eclipse downdraft blower system. When I push the button the downdraft rises but then immediately goes back down

Gail was spot on. That worked for me until the unit would go up and/or down on its own. The problem was traced to the double microswitch called the 'Lower Switch Bracket Assembly' ($24. thru Lowes ). To replace these switches is not for the faint of heart as it is deep within the assembly. A good weekend mechanic can look at the exploded parts diagram and see what / where. Found grease residue on- and slightly within- the microswitchs due to Broan not properly design shielding and protecting these critical switches from grease. Did not find any ghosts, however.

I have come down to find my aga cooker out the fire has gone out. There is oil around the burner but I can see no reason why it has gone out. Any suggestsions?

Much better than a microwave, any day!
It is quite common, if the fuel tank is not checked yearly, that condensation may build up in the fuel line and finish up with water in the fuel, causing the problem you describe. Also a sharp downdraft from the chimney can blow the pilot flame out.
Make sure it is cleaned before you re-light it. Preferably get the system serviced.
Hope this helps.

Downdraft problem. I live in a rowhouse with a

For one thing your pilot light shouldn't blow out because of a downdraft. They are not strong enough to blow out a properly working pilot.

Have the thermocouple and orifice cleaned out. The orifice hole is sooooo small you won't be able to put the thinnest gauge needle through it. Any residue buildup results in a weak flame that is easily blown out.

Extend your chimeny simply by adding a double wall flue to it. Then put a cap on it.
