JENNAIR DOWNDRAFT COOKTOP

ON MY NEW JENNAIR COOKTOP THE FAN IS SUPPOSED TO COME ON AUTOMATICALLY WHEN I USE THE GRILL. I HAVE TO MANUALLY TURN THE FAN ON BEFORE THE GRILL WILL EVEN COME ON AND WHEN IT DOES COME ON THE GRILL DOESN'T GET HOT ENOUGH THAT I CANNOT LAY MY HAND ON IT. THIS UNIT HAS A SECOND GRILL THAT WORKS FINE. ANYONE KNOW MY PROBLEM?

    My Jennair is older cook top with a fan that works and then quits and then comes back on. When it is on it works with the switch or with the burner but when it quits neither will turn on the fan. It comes on by itself when switched on and then stops and then comes on again with out anything being changed.

    Any suggestions would be helpful, switch or fan motor?

Bibman: Sounds like the control switch or possible loose wiring. Take the element out and test the slots for voltage. You should get 220 Volts when on high.


DMA Jennair The fan motor is bad and needs to be replaced.

Whirlpool SC8720EDB cooktop stove independent vent switch is not starting downdraft exhaust fan, but the exhaust fan works fine when left side burners were turned on


Can you get to the switch terminals and try jumping them out with a piece of insulated wire? That would tell you if the switch is defective (my suspicion). Please be careful not to touch any live terminals - only the wire insulation you use for the jumper.

I used my grill for the first time, & the downdraft didn't work we'll, the house filled with smoke & eventually the downdraft shut off and I had to finish cooking in a pan. My Jenn-Air is...


The downdraft is electric so there must be something malfunctioning with it. It is a high volume downdraft fan that is to be vented to the outside. Could it be that something has clogged the vent hole up, not allowing the fan to evacuate the smoke?

While I am not a big fan of Jenn-Air, their fans are usually high quality if they are installed correctly, with the proper vent lines.

After using the grill cartridge for the first time, and then replacing it with the double burner cartridge again, now the fan goes on every time we turn those burners on. This is a grill only feature. ...


There has got to be an interlock that is actuated by inserting the grill into the cooktop. That interlock switch or sensor is probably stuck closed and still is sending the signal to the stove that the grill is being operated, not the burner cartridge. Pull the burners out, insert the grill back into the cooktop a few times feeling for interference or something not seating right. When you find the interlock or sensor, inspect it to see if it is hung up, clean it, adjust it, or tap it lightly. If the switch/sensor is operating properly, reinsert the burners, make sure the fan is turned off, and operate them, checking to see if the fan is now off. If not, there is either a faulty sensor or a fault in the signal line to the control board or in the board itself. But a hung up interlock is what I would be looking for first. Good luck.

Jenn-Air Cooktop replacement needed


You can get a new cooktop surface from Maytag/Jennair for $229. It is a pain however to replace it. Where is the crack in your cooktop and does that crack pass directly through a heating element? If not, then you may be able to repair it. I broke the corner off mine, and then dropped the piece (now 5 pieces). I was able to bond them back together and you really can't tell it was ever broken. But, it takes some work.

Exhaust turns on automatically in burner mode


Hello
I have the one with the 4 burners and the grill, and when the grill in on the fan has to come on, and it does automaticly, but once you finish with the grill you have to change it back to stove mode by putting the 2 burners back or the fan will allways go on when you turn the switch. It is a safety regulation for the fan to be on with the grill to avoid the fumes......I know I hate that too.
Hope this help
