I pumped out water that somehow collected in the exterior exhaust pipe. Even though there is a hood on the outdoor pvc pipe, it still filled with water; not sure how but after extracting the water, the fan works great now.

New microwave that is not an outside exhaust. The fan works but there is not suction from bottom of unit? Also is this fan supposed to come on when there is hot steam coming up from the stove below?


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

From my understanding you have some questions regarding the operation of your Frigidaire microwave. The fan will turn on when the temperature sensor recognizes the temperature is too hot. There should be suction from the bottom. If you are experiencing issues with your new microwave I would recommend contacting your manufacturer for proper warranty coverage. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

I used my grill for the first time, & the downdraft didn't work we'll, the house filled with smoke & eventually the downdraft shut off and I had to finish cooking in a pan. My Jenn-Air is...


The downdraft is electric so there must be something malfunctioning with it. It is a high volume downdraft fan that is to be vented to the outside. Could it be that something has clogged the vent hole up, not allowing the fan to evacuate the smoke?

While I am not a big fan of Jenn-Air, their fans are usually high quality if they are installed correctly, with the proper vent lines.

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.

Bearings are worn. You should be able to replace with a standard utility fan. You can find them at your local big box hardware store or order online here.
