Jenn-air downdraft fan not working

I just installed a new cooktop. Th burners work fine. The fan does not come on when I use the switch. I checked the power to the unit to see if there was a wire for the fan that I missed. I also checked the wire connection to the fan. All of those seem fine. Tom

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 Jenn Air gas cooktop, only about 2 years

If the burner just clicks and won't stare try this (a local tech showed me) Scrape the underside of the burner cap (the removable black disk in the middle of the burner) with a key or knife and watch it work! But be ready to do it again and again. There's a glossy finish left by the factory he said.

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?
