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.

I have a Haier Commercial Cool air conditioner, model CPRD12XC7, 12,000 BTU that has 2 hoses off the back and is made to be vented thru a window. I want to install it in a closet with no windows. Can I...


Mark, the two hoses serve different functions (Fresh Air Intake & Hot Air Exhaust). Therefore, they would have to remain separate. Also, Haier does not recommend extending the length of the hoses, to accommodate a specific change in installation. And yes, they can be vented through a wall to the outside. But, you would need to use something similar to a clothes dryer vent termination on the outside. Most exterior dryer vent terminations have insect screening and a flap door that opens when air from the dryer pushes it open. This would be fine for the exhaust hose, but not the Air Intake Hose. I guess if you could carefully remove the flap door. it could be used on the Air Intake hose. Also, keep in mind that the unit requires a minimum of one foot air space clearance off the back of the unit, for proper air circulation around the unit. If clothes will be hanging in this closet, that may present an air circulation issue.

Hope this helped you, please let me know. Thanks.

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.

Installing downdraft venting


Richard, you should be ok, you may want to check it periodically to make sure that grease isn't building up in the low spot... You are adding a couple of bends, but it should still draw well.

Cold air draft


the only way is to block off/check the flapper., if your not going to use for the winter you can disconnect the vent from under the cabinet temporaily and close off there till you can gain access to check outside grill

Jenn air downdraft


They should be pretty close to the same, if not, it would would very inexpensive and easy to modify or adapt the new one. Mostly the vent piping would have to be modified. Like I said though, you shouldnt have a problem at all.

Downdraft


I would double check that the installer used the correct vent hood outside. The correct one has a spring that keeps the outdoor flap closed when not in use. Cleaning the outdoor flap area may also help it seal a little better. Even if the right hood was installed, you might check to see there is a spring present (or signs that there was one.

I have never had air blow out the downdraft, but I do feel cold travel to the fan unit which makes the floor cold in front of the range.

Downdraft vent on jenn air cooktop


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?

Stopping cold air


Depending on where it is vented you probably wont be able to stop the air. Take the grill out and see if there is a door flap that is supposed to close when the fan is off. If not your out of luck.
