Question about KitchenAid KHTU165RSS Stainless Steel Kitchen Hood
Retractable(pop up)downdraft vent system just stoped working. Pushed the start button, but no sound or movement. Did not take out filter (that according to the manual can lock the system. It just doesn't pop up. The circuit breaker did not tip off, nor the receptacle -where the cord is pluged into- went bad (a lamp plugged into the same receptacle is working). There is no loose wire within. What to do? Thanks for any advice.
check for power going into the switch. (you need a meter) If the switch is set to "on" there should be power going in and out. Find a good ground or use the white wire to test. If there is, just follow the path of electricity. If you do not have a meter this is next to impossible to do.

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.
