Question about GE Profile JVB67 36" Telescopic Downdraft Ventilation System: Black on Black Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

GE Profile Telescoping Downdraft system gets stuck.

We installed a new motor, and it worked for a few weeks, but every time it was on it's way down ( about three quarters down) it drop suddenly drop. Now it gets jammed either in the up or down position. I take it apart and free the lifting arm, but when I turn it on it will jam again.

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.

I have a 36" GE Profile gas stove w/telescoping downdraft. (GEJVB98SH1SS), but I have no idea how to install filter (WB02X10940) ?


There is generally a release tab at one side of the housing (snorkel) that you turn to release one side of the filter

yes you are right..there are switches that should be detected that the unit is in its proper level ans hould stop and turn the fan on.

you may inspect the railing or where the moving part is moving to find limit switches or sliding switches or sensors..it could have been defective with oil or grease and not making contact to transfer the signal to the controller.

Jxb37 won't lower


My unit always goes up. Sometimes it doesn't go down. Then, after some time it goes down. Could it be the capacitor is bad?

I have a GE downdraft vent, model #JVB94SH1SS. A couple months ago I pushed the button to put it down and it went down and up and down and up and down and up and...well you get it. I had to unplug it to...


I had the same problem. It is the switch. Hang on because that little $3 swtich is about $60 from a parts house. Sears wanted $114. If you take the switch out or disconnect the switch at the board and jumper the two leads, (12v), it should work fine. That will tell you whether it is the switch. I did it with a small screwdriver. Careful, even though it is 12v it will get yor attention. I have all GE appliances and they are all junk.

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.

Pivot arm in telescoping downdraft system sticks when closing


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.
