I have the same problems with my vertical hood duct. Condensation si causing the humidity of the room that slowly escapes to condensate and come back down. I insulated with rigid polystyrene foam to R-7 but it is not enough yet. I think I'll need to make it go horizontal as soon as it goes in the roof and the condensation should be on a down slope to the outside

Re: GE Monogram Overhead Hood is drippiong water
The hood pipe vents through the roof. Either the shingles around the pipe, or the rubber flange the pipe goes through is allowing water to enter and run down the pipe.
Someone will have to go on the roof with a tube of roof cement and look for a void in the flange or the shingles. For sure I would run a bead of roof cement around the pipe where it goes through the flange.

simple job. remove the hood and in front of the engine the valve cover has 4 bolts holding it on. put a rag under it so no oil drips on the muffler. take the 4 bolts out and clean the valve cover good and the mating surface on the engine. put new gasket on and put bolts back on.
I think you have a basic design problem here. I wish I could see drawings and digital photos. I think I would have found a way to run horizontally then down to discharge. I would not go up through the roof. The duct run would be stainless snap together sealed duct with a ceramic firewrap around it. At the intake Id place a bimetalic safety to open on fire with manual panic switches. The blower would be at the final exit point. You could add a small director piece on discharge. Virtually every kitchen I see is woefully designed and no where near GREEN. Lets expand this conversation.
We love ours have had it for two years. We have the 48" Dual fuel with the grill on top. Model ZDP48N6RH2SS.
The only issue we had to adjust to is the btu's (stove top flame) are so high and there is designated simmer burner or low btu burner.
The grill is excellent especially in the winter but you have to follow the instructions. First time use we didn't let it heat up long enough. Patience - it's worth it. That's for our model from 2006. YOu must be sure to get a strong enough range hood for the range you buy.
I found them at http://lightbulbsdirect.com look for MR1650E26120 JDR Type Medium Base (E-26) / MR-16 2 Diameter Flood / Line Voltage / 50 Watt, they were only $5.99 each. apparently GE charges you $19.50 if you order through them.
Diana, the tech sheet I have states that if the unit has a power interruption, reset the house circuit breaker to the hood, if made before 2001. If after 2001, serial number beginning with DA press the start button to reset the hood. Let me know if it worked, Catriver..post back.
