Question about GE Profile JVB67H Kitchen Hood
The hood is in the up position and wont go back down. the fan motor also won't go on. I can hear a noice when it is plugged in but am not sure what it is, its more like its locked in place. i though about ordering a replacement swithch assy up/down but am not sure that is the problem? any suggestions
The filters need to be seated properly to complete an electrical safety circuit. This keeps the unit from operating without the filters. The best way I have found to fix them when they get dislodged in the closed position is by using two spatulas. The first is used to move the filter forward a bit and the second is used to keep it pushed tightly forward to complete the circuit.

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.

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.
