Bought a house with Technica oven (5-6 yrs old), turned on grill and it smoked badly. All smoke going into room - should it be sucked up into oven vents ?(slots at top of inside oven when door open)....


The grill probably has some type of oil or cleaning agent spilled on to it. the only way i have done it is just burned it off. But I suppose you could pull the burners and wash with soap and warm water. It's much nicer to have a exhaust vent leading out through the range hood to the outside So if you have the time and money it's a relatively easy job to do. Good luck

Takes forever for my oven to preheat to 400*. 25 minutes or so. Oven is brand new.


A brand new oven should work. You should not tinker with a brand new oven. A brand new oven that is malfunctioning is probably under warranty and should be repaired under that warranty.

Viking is the Rolls Royce of kitchen equipment. Call your installer or builder or Viking for service for your brand new oven.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Brand new Kenmore microwave fan does not **** up air


It's easier to notice air blowing out of something than it is to notice air being sucked into something. Put a pot of boiling water on the stove and see if the oven sucks up the steam from it. If it does, it's working fine.

Suction fan on GE over-the-range microwave


If the blade is not big enough, the motor not powerful enough, or the vent size is wrong then it will not work properly, On thing you can do is check the vent cap and make sure that it has not falling down onto the vent pipe and blocking air movement.

Vent fan high comes on automatically with cooking


Right, that would be MCO10UW and the owner's manual is here.

The owner's manual does say this, of course,

"To prevent overheating from taking place, the exhaust
fan is designed to automatically turn on at a low speed if
excessive temperatures occur. Should this happen, the
fan cannot be manually turned off, but it will
automatically turn off when the internal parts have
cooled. The fan may stay on for up to an hour after the
range and microwave oven controls have been turned
off."

That;'s standard on microwaves.

But these models do have a separate internal cooling fan (which should run any time you microwave) plus the hood vent exhaust fan, which should only run when you select it, or if there is an excessive stovetop or under-hood temperature.

So if it comes on whenever you microwave, that is incorrect.

When that happens, it's usually a defective vent thermal switch (a.k.a. hood TCO).

But since it's brand new, I would certainly contact Magic Chef about this. If it's in need of repair, they will fix it free, assuming the oven wasn't physically damaged.

Fan switch not work - Viking 3048SS brand new range hood


There is the on off switch and the blower control that controls the speed of the fan. It is more than likley the blower control that would need replaced.

There could also be a wire disconnected in the hood.

Brand new Viking 3048SS hood - fan switch not working


think i would call viking back and ask for refund of inspection fee and go by the bad switch scenerio the electrician said new fan that would be considered flaws in workmanship in most states dont know where you are located but pretty much same anywhere most inspectors for these companies always try to blame problems off on installers hold your ground and make them fix it and refund that" inspection " fee I've been doing electrical work for several (20+) years it takes longer than 5 minutes to troubleshoot something like that good luck
