Vent Cleaning Problem

How do you get the inside area of the vent clean from the grease and oils where the filter is?? I have a rectangular box style downdraft that the vent goes into the floor, I pulled the filter, but the box is to slender to get an arm into to scrub the grease....... does the bottom come off, or is it a sealed unit? How do you get all the brease from the bottom if you cannot reach it?

Hello.
Down drafts are one of the biggest pains in the neck to work on, because one has to get underneath the cook top, and remove the duct, then the blower motor, and then the cover that is over the part that goes up and down. That is if the contractor who put it in didn't build shelves around it or put a bunch of drawers in front of it. So there you have it. It is not easy to clean it. You have to be prepared to disassemble it and try and put it back together properly. One time a customer paid me to have me completely dissassemble the inside of her refrigerator because some bad fish had leaked into everything and she wanted to clean it. You could always do that.

We have a viking cook top and the vent goes up and down but the fan does not always turn on ? Can you help


Hi,
Some units have a dead man switch, which means that if the filters are not in place correctly the blowers will not operate. Its a safety thing to prevent little ones from dropping toys into a running blower. Double check the filters placement, if the filters are in the proper location than I would look at the power to the blower unit. The vent has two jobs, (1) to raise and lower, (2) to turn on the blower unit once in the full up position. If this is not the case, the upper switch in the vent system has failed. If you already confused, you will need to call a Viking expert to correct this problem. Its not difficult but can be time consuming.
I hope this helps
I have seen this problem twice and found the filters were the problem, rarely replace blower motors..

After cleaning the cooktop surface the "clicking"


I just solved the continuous sparking in my gas burner. I removed the control knobs and the rubber below those knobs. Gave the rubber and the area below it a good clean using kitchen and bath cleaning wipes that I bought from Coles. The key is to remove the water and grease from the rubber and the area below it. Good luck!

How do you clean the trough in the middle?


Hello- You can put the filter in the dishwasher. The trough can be difficult to clean, I would use something that's not too sudsy, like Citra Solv or any degreaser. Just use a sponge or rag. If there is a lot of build-up you can scrape-up the grease with a plastic putty knife. Once it is clean just turn the vent on to dry it so any water left over will not cause the pan to rust. Hope this helps, best regards.

My new home already has a hood vent for the range. I have a gas Jenn air downdraft range. I prefer to use the hood vent as the downdraft is not very efficient. Do I have to connect the blower on my range...


The poupose of either is to eliminate any smoke created by the range or grille and move as much of the cooking odors to the outside. I wouldn't use both at the same time, but if the hood is vented to the outside, it would be just fine to use only the hood. Aregular cleaning will be necesssary. The downdraft has limits as to the distance it will efficiently exhaust air. Flex hose should not be used. And excessive bends or vent length, cuts into the efficiency.

I have a new Jenn-air ceramic cooktop- what do I do to clean it.


Greases lightning is a great cleaner for cooktops and work great on the grease filter it is sold at most stores. Be careful however when cleaning around the control knobs. They do have a rubber dust cover over each switch but if any fluid drips past it and into the switch it could short out the control.

I just had a similar problem. The switch knob, and backer for the blower got jambed in the housing. After pulling it all apart I called the parts center at Thermador and ordered a new switch. If you can hear the motor the raises the unit run, then that could be your problem.
