Question about Range Hoods

2 Answers

Faulty response to buttons, turns itself off

It has always had a button press problem, sometimes needed to press 2 or 3 times. Now, it takes many many presses at different angles to get any response from any button, and then after a few seconds, the blower turns off.

I am electrically and mechanically qualified, I need a schematic of the control system so i can see whats wrong.

    No, it is not a fan problem.
    The lights on the buttons do not come on.
    It is a control electronics problem, and I am asking for a schematic to the control system.

    Pinnacle Raised vent System, model RV36.
    I put that in both the original request and the problem identification box.
    Do those not get to you?

    And, I should add that the raise/lower function exhibits the same failure.

    Do you have a control system schematic?

This sounds like a fan power relay problem - If you can give a specific make and model number, and approximate age (if known), I could be more helpful.

    True....need the make and model. It's possible the switch is bad. How old is the unit?

    Nope...did not get those...but I am looking for a schematic for you....

    Looking at it...it appears that you should have the wiring diagram attached to the unit. It is either on the inside of the ducting inside the blower chassis

    The filters need to be removed and the diagrams are usually on the sides or in the back.

    The diagrams are included in the mini manual usually located in the blower chassis or underneath the duct covers.

Bosch dishwasher won't latch


No you did good in ordering a latch ,that is a common issue i find with the bosch d/w, for no apparent reason the latch locks itself with the door open. Look at the door where the male part of the latch goes into the door, you will see that is locked. if you take it apart and manually unlock the latch u stand to break it. Again you did good on ordering the latch.

Downdraft doesn't alway go down and up.


I have the same problem. Seems to be pretty common that the motor that raises the unit goes bad. Ours is 2 1/2 years old and has not seen that much use....that motor should not have failed that soon...and this is a high end product!!! I have been quoted $289 for a replacement motor and $150 for labor!! So, $450 bucks....gads. The unit, new, cost about $900, as I recall.

DACOR DOWNDRAFT RV36B PROBLEM


when just the high and low lights are lit, the unit is in childproof mode. try holding down the high and low buttons at the same time until they go out. then if they do, check the response of the other buttons. If this dosen't help, there are really only 2 other options. Most often we see the control board go bad on these (located behind an access panel in the lower right hand corner of the unit below the counter) or the button pad contacts wear out. If the only button that doesn't respond is the up down button, and all the other buttons work fairly easily once its up..then you probably have a bad button pad. If the thing does all sorts of weird things and seem to have a mind of its own, probably a bad control board. the control boards on these fail so often, they re-designed the board to prevent further failures. The button pad is easier to replace and cheaper, so if you have to guess go with that first. good luck!
