Question about Kenmore 59940 Kitchen Hood
Hi guys, I've got this 6 year old downdraft fan. Complaint is that the drive motor runs without any movement up or down of the unit. Discovered it when in the down position. Manually raised it up, where it now resides. Blower fan works as advertised. any ideas? This appears to be the only piece of gear that the builder didn't leave me a manual or parts xmatic for - wouldn't you know... Thanks, Deano K. Beaverton, OR

I would order a new Controller Board. Depending on the exact version, it could be a problem with a relay, or a triac on the board, that are meant to power up the motor.
