Question about KitchenAid KIRD862HSS Kitchen Hood

Vertical Vent The vertical vent on KIRD862HSS is not rising. When I push the power button to activate nothing happens. Could it be a simple power switch problem or something else?

Re: Vertical Vent

I had the same problem with mine. One of the removable screens had come off (partially). Unfortunately it was when it was in the down position. The person repairing it took something off underneath the stovetop and snapped the screen back it. It worked after that.

Up & down push button not working

Repaired the same problem several months ago. The up/down control has a very small switch located under the button. The switch is part of the selector switch assembly that costs upwards of $100. However, the switch itself is available from Digi Key electronics part # P12321-SCT-ND at about $1.00 each, plus shipping. If you can handle the unit disassembly, which is extensive in this repair, and can solder very small switches, this is an inexpensive fix. I suggest you buy some spares. I'm looking for a seal replacement for this unit right now. Good luck.

Your drive motor arm is not making contact with either of the two limit switches at 6 and 12 positions. Your arm may be loose, gear stripped, broken bracket. Turn off the power at the breaker panel and remove the vent pipe cover box (4 nuts) see what is going on inside. Tellstar
