Downdraft for a stove

I have an island with no vent. Rather than a cook top I have a stove and would like to install a downdraft vent (30"). I've yet to find a downdraft that indicates it can be used on a gas stove. Is such a vent made?

I would like to put my cook top on an island in the centre of my kitchen how would i vent down thru a crawl space???

Get a downdraft cook top and drill a hole. Then run the piping to the outside wall of the house and drill again and run the piping thru to the outside. They make outside wall vents like dryer vents only bigger to accommodate the bigger vent pipe. Happy crawling. It will look and work great if you get a good stove. Do your research.

Cook 'n Vent Downdraft Up/Down Mechanism Replacing

just the switch should be replacable. My vent has a screw at each end (philips flatheads - accessible only when vent is up) just under the top cap. Removing the screws and cap should give you access to the switch. Just make sure you cut your breaker off first.

Thermador cook top with down draft ventalation

I would think you can. Most of the cooktops are 240v and the vents are 120v, so the vent may be feeding off of one of the cooktop's hot wires. My vent is fed from it's own receptacle but is harnessed along with the cooktop's 240v.

Install a Thermador UCV36 cook'n'vent

Hi schmidt_rich,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You took over as owner builder when your builder "took the $ and ran". You are installing kitchen cabs now and discovered the PVC vent pipe (which goes into the foundation and out the side of the house) is in the wrong place for the location of the downdraft unit and integral blower. The vent is actually under the electrical connection panel. You were told initially( 2 yrs ago when you bought the downdraft cook'n'vent) there could be no bends in the exhaust fan route or it would change the effectiveness. Does anyone know if it is ok to put a bend in the connection to the vent? Or do you need to redo your kitchen cabinets?

I can syphathise. I have had to deal with this same problem. I have found that one ell will not degrade the effectiveness enough to notice. If you need more then you may need to adjust cabinets.

Feel free contact me again!

No Air suction into downdraft.

there won't be any noticable suction like with a vacuum unless the cfm rating is very high. the distance of the hood from the cooking surface is a factor too as you are sucking in room air besides the stove fumes and steam.
