Re: Blower motor suction
You may want to check the venting on the unit, motor may be fine, but sounds to me like you may have a collapsed line, or a plugged line, I would also make sure nothing has gotten down into the venting chamber at the top to clog it, hope that helps

sounds like induced draft blower. take off door. find grey tube. pull it off. first suck on tube and see if you hear a click from vacuum switch. if yes. then hpefully you have a small enough piece of wire ti inser into top of where tube attaches to motor housing remembering to have power off while doing this. insert wire clear airway and put tube back. power on and test. Good luck
I just installed a JES9900BAB that I got from a Sears Outlet Store two months ago. The blower motor had a sticker on it that said not to reverse the motor and intake sides because it would not operate correctly. I bet your contractor actually disassembled the motor and reversed the intake 180 degrees in order to make the installation easier. This would cause the down draft to blow instead of ****. With the exhaust of the fan, part that goes through the floor, closest to the back of the range, the inlet should be on the left and the motor should be on the right.
There is a fan that sucks DOWN like a Jenn-Air cook top. There is no hood usually over such a stove. Usually the suction for the vent is between the burners. I think the air can be exhausted through a filter back into the room or to the out of doors.
Cleaning the flame sensor has nothing to do with blower motor not turning on. You either one of the following problems 1 bad cap for motor. 2 bad motor. 3 bad limit on blower housing or 4 a bad board. You will need a volt meter to check for these problems. Try seeing if the fans runs with unit of and fan switch turned to on. Also does motor hummmm. Is motor cage free ( can check by manually turning) If motor doesnt humm and the cage is free wheeling then you will need to find out if you have power going to the motor. If you find out that you do then you will need to change blower motor. If you do not have power then you will need to check limit with continuity tester on volt meter. If that checks fine only 1 thing can be wrong and that is the board.
