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?

    That is not the problem I have - there is no flap.

When it is windy outside the flap on my exhaust fan flaps open and shut. Is there a problem in the way the fan was installed?

Not likely, Just a condition of the location of the vent and the wind direction.Putting a secondary larger hood over the outside exposure will sometimes help alleviate this.

What is a bottom vented cooktop

There is a fan that sucks DOWN like a Jenn-Air cook top. There is no hood usually over such a stove. Usually the suction for the vent is between the burners. I think the air can be exhausted through a filter back into the room or to the out of doors.

The salesman didnt explain this to you???

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

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
