Jenn Air broken flap on outside exhaust hood

I noticed the stove was colder than ever. We have a fan (in the cabinet below the stove) which evacuates air through a wall slot covered by a plastic hood.. The spring mechanism controlling the flap is broken off.
1) This unit is 20 years old. Is there a replacement, not of the fan but only the external hood, that will be better insulated to keep out the cold?
2) If not, can the flap mechanism be repaired w/o replacing the hood?
Thanks,
Steve

The fan catches when it is on and makes loud grinding noises


With the stove off, remove the back wall cover for the fan. Remove fan, clean and lubricate, if needed. Install fan after cleaning. Bend back wall cover so that it is bowed away from fan, if needed. and install.

Refrigerator does not freeze enough


Lets have a look at rear wall of freezer, is there frost building up? Usually in top freezers the cold air settles to bottom and you don't notice fresh food section until about a day. If frost is building open fresh food sections door and in control panel=> CLICK HERE see item 257 in photo? That is WR9X565 or 311082 Defrost Timer Just below that is the control panel cover and you should have a small plastic plug covering a hole just below the defrost timer. Pry plastic plug out and using a flathead screwdriver turn the defrost timer clockwise slowly. Once you hear the compressor and fans stop stop turning timer and about a minute later you should hear some crackling noise coming from freezer. Allow to stay like that for up to 30 minutes and timer should come out of defrost and compressor and fans should start again on their own. If this action caused defrost then replace the defrost timer. If that does not seem to cause defrost the we need to go to step two, unplug and place items in a cooler or alternate refrigerator and use a hair dryer to assist in melting the ice behind rear panel. Remove rear panel in back of freezer and see => Freezer Components item's 621 and WR51X10038 or 880036 Defrost Heater Assembly
You will need to remove rear panel and work with refrigerator unplugged from power. On this=> Page watch how to test your defrost element just beside a photo of the timer. Most times I replace the defrost thermostat while inside freezer wall but I will let you try this first and please respond and rate, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Need to get replacement electric fan motors for bathroom exhaust fans. 1-Model # F33HXCFJ-1187 and 1-Model # F33HXBME-903. Both made by Emerson 1/100 hp, 120 v


Hello

Using a stool positioned directly beneath the inoperative fan, grasp 2 opposite sides of the plastic fan cover and pull cover down 2 to 3 inches until wire holding clasps on each side are exposed.

Squeeze the 2 wires on each clasp together until the fan cover is released and set aside fan cover.

Locate fan electrical plug and unplug the connection from the electrical outlet.

Locate the screw securing the fan unit to the ceiling. This is often found directly adjacent the electrical outlet. Some fan models will have 2 securing screws. These will be located on opposite sides of the fan base.

Use flat-head screwdriver to remove securing screw, pull fan out of the fan well and set old fan aside.

Align replacement fan in position to allow electrical plug to be inserted in electrical socket and plug into electrical outlet.

Insert fan into ceiling well and secure by inserting and tightening securing screw(s).

Test fan by turning on wall switch. If fan fails to operate, check to be certain that the plug is fully inserted into the electrical outlet. If fan still does not operate, check circuit breaker and reset if necessary.

Replace fan cover by holding cover in place with 2 wire clasps just below the slots in the fan base. Squeeze the 2 wire ends of each clasp together and insert these into the the slots on opposite sides of the fan base. Once properly inserted, the ends of the wire claps will spring into place.

Push the fan cover up allowing the wire clasps to be fully inserted into the slots on the fan base, at which point the clasps will spring open securing the cover in place.

Instalation Instructions for Frigidaire Over the Range Microwave 850 Watt Model #FMT118EPB


HI,

Frigidaire makes several over-the-range microwave models that are all installed in the same manner. To install correctly, you must have at least 45 1/2 inches from the bottom of the top cabinet to the cooking surface of the stove to provide enough clearance for the microwave. The top cabinet must also be at least 30 inches wide and 12 inches deep. Find someone to help you, then follow the steps below to install your Frigidaire microwave.

Things You'll Need:
  • Stud finder or hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill
Instructions

Pull your range away from the wall so you can work comfortably. If this is not possible, cover it with a drop cloth. Find and mark the locations of the studs in the wall behind the range. They will be either 16 or 24 inches apart.

Follow the instructions on the wall template to mark the location of the mounting bracket and the four anchor holes on the wall and the bottom of the cabinet. Drill the anchor holes. Follow the instructions on the top cabinet template to mark and drill the two holes in the bottom of the cabinet.

Attach the mounting bracket to the wall studs using the six wood screws included with your microwave. Screw the toggle nuts onto the toggle bolts and push one through each of the four drilled holes. Screw each toggle bolt until the nut is snug against the inside of the wall.
Pick up the oven with your helper. Plug the oven into the outlet and slide the oven onto the mounting bracket arms. Push the oven back against the wall. Tighten the two screws on the microwave faceplate to fasten the microwave to the mounting bracket arms.
Attach the louver to the top of the microwave with the three provided screws. Insert the two top cabinet screws and washers from the top cabinet into the microwave and fasten tightly.

Take care.

Fisher Paykel Fridge. Access to fridge fan.


My fridge is 11 years old and recently had the same problem; the freezer was cooling well, but the fridge compartment was not cooling enough. I searched the Web a read most answers. I thought the fan was faulty, but in fact it wasn't (the fridge has got 2 fans, one for each compartment, and they look very similar, the part number on mine was 883340). The whole problem was a build-up of ice in the condenser unit that is at the back of the freezer compartment. What happens is that the ice blocks the passage of air the fan for the fridge compartment. This of course stops the cool air circulating to the fridge compartment. I was able to repair the fridge an it is now working perfectly. This is what I did:
1) Removed everything from the fridge, food, shelves, the lot.
2) I made sure the fan for the fridge compartment was okay, by connecting it to a 9V battery; the fan was okay. (I did this because after reading the posts I was convinced the problem was a dead fan, but you can skip this step if you can hear the fan spinning and think it is okay). To check the fan, remove by pulling the toll plastic cover that fits below the smaller plastic cover with the temperature indicator. This cover is very flexible and flimsy, start pulling from near the bottom and continue along the right side, flexing it as you go along, until it comes free (there is an insulating plastic foam moulding underneath that comes with it). As soon as you remove this cover, you will see the small fan and the plugs. Unplug the fan's connector (it has a small lock you need to press) and wire it to a standard 9 volt battery. CAUTION: observe polarity! The battery positive terminal MUST be connected to the RED wire (or the fan burns!). If the fan is bad, you can remove it very easily by inserting 2 finger inside the white plastic holder, pushing the fan in (the fan is held with 3 very elastic thin silicon bands, that do not break) ,hooking the holder from the inside edge with your fingers and pulling. It will just come out through the slot. (I did this, but then had some problem in getting it back in place. I finally left it in a near flat position, but not quite as flat as it was. Nevertheless it works okay).
3) My fan was good (I wasted a lot of time doing this), so next I shifted my attention to the freezer compartment. I then noticed that the plastic cover at the bottom of the compartment was half dislodged from its proper location, all covered on ice. I removed the cover, breaking the ice that held it with care. This cover is difficult to remove, there is a lot of pushing and pulling, so be prepared and patient; do not break it (mine came out with a small locking leg broken, but it did go back in place without any problems). I then checked the second fan, that is on this cover; it was also okay.
4) As soon as I removed the cover I saw the problem...ice everywhere! I reached for the house hair drier and after about one hour it was all gone. Note that most of the problem ice is behind the condenser (small radiator looking aluminum frame, that should be left alone. Do not move, push or twist it).
5) once all the ice was removed, I the carefully pushed the radiator back in place at the bottom of the compartment (it just fits and had been displaced by the growth of ice), and replaced the plastic cover.
6) and voila! my fridge was again working perfectly. About 3 hours flat.

Frezzer gets cold fridge dose not compressor and fan are running fridge only cools to about 46


Most modern combination units have two fans; one under the cabinet to move air over the coils and a second concealed behind the cabinets to distribute the cold air to both compartments. When you balance them to get the desired temperatures in each, you are adjusting the air flow from the cooling coils. Typically, the freezer has the coils and the fridge gets a little via ducts in the rear wall. If this fan fails, the freezer will suffer least and that seems to be what you are experiencing.
When the compressor is running, check the inlets in the back of the refrigerator to see if you have noticeable air flow. If not, that fan has failed.

Jenn Air stove wired backwards


The fan is likely 120-volt fan, and swapping the wire likely put 220 across the fan. Did the fan seem to rev up very fast? The control is also likely 120-volt, and that too had 220 applied to it.

Give me the model number, and I'll find what parts you need to replace

Gas range building codes


that wall needs to be of fire proof construction
so ceramic tiles up to the underside of the cabinets
use a base sheet of asbestos fibre sheeting or like material on which to glue the tiles and keep the spacing close
under the cabinets should have a sheet of stainless (.05mm) as well to prevent flames from igniting the cabinet material as well as making the under side easier to clean

Switch/Controller Problem Odd problem and with the price of the control board being $235 and the switch only $58 I need to find out which one is bad: Each switch for the fan and light work fine through all settings (fan; hight, med, low and light bright and dim) IF SWITCHED ON ALONE but if I have the light on and try to turn on the fan (which defaults to MED/pos2) the light will remain on but the fan will make a slight noise then be silent. If with the light still on, then switch the fan to LOW/pos1 or HIGH/pos3 the fan will turn on and the light will stay on and it works fine. If I turn on the FAN first then the light, no matter what teh fan setting, will only do on at the Dim0nightlight setting! I was told that not only does the unit have the centrally mounted Electronic Control Board but the switch assembly also has a circuit board in it so I am unsure how to proceed. I cannot find any troubleshooting guide/test parameters for this unit anywhere and Whirlpool/Jenn-Air were no help. As a side note, the parts guy says that, yes, the front mounted switch assembly is only $58 BUT that the "ribbon Connecttor" can NOT be reused then tells me that the short piece of cheap ribbon is over $300! I gathered after he checked a bit that that price gets you the ENTIRE wiring harness???? WHy can I NOT reuse the ribbon connector? on computer obards one can trim off the penetrated section and reuse it. ANY help will be GREATLY appreciated!!!!! Doug
