They should be pretty close to the same, if not, it would would very inexpensive and easy to modify or adapt the new one. Mostly the vent piping would have to be modified. Like I said though, you shouldnt have a problem at all.

yes you are right..there are switches that should be detected that the unit is in its proper level ans hould stop and turn the fan on.

you may inspect the railing or where the moving part is moving to find limit switches or sliding switches or sensors..it could have been defective with oil or grease and not making contact to transfer the signal to the controller.

Installing downdraft venting


Richard, you should be ok, you may want to check it periodically to make sure that grease isn't building up in the low spot... You are adding a couple of bends, but it should still draw well.

How can a Jenn-Air down draft stove be vented out the roof ?


Yes , its much more labor intense but it can be done by venting it up through the wall then through the attic over to the side vents. Make sure to get flexable duct to pull up through the wall.

Replacing Jenn-air down draft with new unit


Since Jenn-Air has been acquired by Whirlpool, there have been an explosion of problems with their appliances.
Please research your intended purchase before deciding on a replacement:

Considering the array of early failures everyone seems to be having with appliances (US made and foreign) bought in the last few years, I couldn't even recommend a manufacturer any more.

Downdraft


I would double check that the installer used the correct vent hood outside. The correct one has a spring that keeps the outdoor flap closed when not in use. Cleaning the outdoor flap area may also help it seal a little better. Even if the right hood was installed, you might check to see there is a spring present (or signs that there was one.

I have never had air blow out the downdraft, but I do feel cold travel to the fan unit which makes the floor cold in front of the range.
