Pivot arm in telescoping downdraft system sticks when closing

The pivot arm in my GE JVB67 telescoping downdraft system sticks when the vent is closing causing it to either stop completely or to stop and then suddenly drop.

    The vent has been in place for 9 years and worked fine until recently. There is plenty of clearance space. We took the unit apart and lubricated it and thus far it seems to be working.

Having the same problem. Unit worked well for 1 1/2 years and then suddenly it dropped after I was thru using it and pushed the arrow for it to go down after it dropped the power wouldn't turn off - had to unplug it.. Repairman came out , took it out, lubricated it , re-installed and next time it went up fine, vented fine but when it went down it dropped again and power wouldn't turn off again. I am hesitant to call him out again unless I can figure out what else might fix the problem. I have noticed that the top piece now seems to be bowed a bit. I guess I can have him take out the cooktop but think there must be enough room for it if it worked fine for the 1 1/2 years. It is a soapstone countertop.

I have seen these units be built in too tight to the conutertop cause the raising portion of your vent to bind on the way down causing it to bounce, hop, thump,and several other noises.
take the cook top out of the countertop and then try the vent and see if it does move smoothe after that.
when they put the top in it pushes against the vent and thats where it is binding.
you might have to cut the counter out more to allow proper clearance.

I need the small control module for a GE downdraft telescopic vent, part no. 959-0138-003 (ACT, Inc.). GE page does not recognize the part number. Where can I get this part?

Thank you.

JVB37H1BB downdraft ventilation system stuck


Folks, I have experienced the same problem several times - in all of my cases the problem was solved by simply opening the back panel and taking out the motor assembly and re-aligning it. Check out this URL for a blow up of what's inside and parts list - http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5130126

The problem is that the arm tends to slip out and therefore won't raise or lower the hood anymore. Be careful when aligning it can be a little tricky - carefully observe the how the motor works outside of the housing via the switch and you will get the idea.

Ge JVB67 downdraft was stuck - didn't come up. Now, when plugged in, the motor "runs" constantly and vent will not rise.


you will have to disassemble the mechanical area to get to the moving parts and also clean and lubricate the telescoping parts with WD-40.

Ge downdraft vent


try removing the switch from the ribbon connector, and then jumping the two pins momentarily with a screwdriver blade or other metallic tool. It could be that the switch itself is bad. This is the same problem I'm having and I am currently looking for a replacement switch online.

GE Profile Telescoping Downdraft system gets stuck.


try to remove your cooktop and see if the vent unit is in your countertop too tightly. by removing the cooktop it will give the vent more space. if it works that way, then you might have to make more space for both to fit properly. i have seen this happen before and its probably what is causing it to bind and then drop suddenly. i hope you dont have a marble, slate or rock type countertop as they are very hard to trim just a little off to get everything to fit.

Wouldn't raise


The GE repair guy came and fixed our vent! He opened up the cover and found that the pivot arm was above where it was supposed to be. It had gotten dislodged or something. He replaced the pivot arm with a new one, Part #WB02X10303, which is supposed to be a new design that won't get off track so easily. Works great now.
