I have a kitchen aid gas stove with a downdraft

I have a kitchen aid gas stove with a whirlpool downdraft vent that raises out of the counter and I do not know how to get into it to clean it. The odor of old grease is starting to overpower my kitchen.  I regularly clean the filters.  How do I clean the inside of it?

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid downdraft hood stuck in retracted position

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.

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.

The self clean feature stops part way thro the cycle and knocks out the oven entirely. The gas stove top still works


Kitchen aid (now Whirlpool) has actually produced a defective stove here. Your problem is the thermostat in the rear of the unit. You can replace it yourself if you are handy, but that will not fix the problem that is built in to this very poor quality stove. If you ever try to use the self cleaning feature, it is most likely you will overheat the unit, and knock it out again and again.I wrote to Kitchen aid and received a very rude response from their "customer dis-service dept"...I told them theyir stove was defective and they wanted to sell me a NEW part for a high price, not even saying "sorry"...what a bad company! I urge all to stay away from Whirlpool products...they are junk!

I would like to put my cook top on an island in the centre of my kitchen how would i vent down thru a crawl space???


Get a downdraft cook top and drill a hole. Then run the piping to the outside wall of the house and drill again and run the piping thru to the outside. They make outside wall vents like dryer vents only bigger to accommodate the bigger vent pipe. Happy crawling. It will look and work great if you get a good stove. Do your research.

The glass cook top of my whirlpool range cracked and i can`t seem to find a model number anywhere on the unit. help


You might find the tag in one of these places:

Cooktop/Range/Stove
Gas:

  • Inside the cooktop--if the top lifts up
  • On the outside, bottom of the unit
  • Inside the top of the vent duct--if it's a “downdraft” unit
Electric:

  • Under one of the surface burners, or inside the cooktop--if the top lifts up
  • On the outside, bottom of the unit
  • Inside the top of the vent duct--if it's a “downdraft” unit
Gas or Electric Oven
  • On oven side of the door jamb (with the door open)
  • On the lower drawer jamb (with the bottom drawer open)

yes you are right..there are switches that should be detected that the unit is in its proper level ans hould stop and turn the fan on.

you may inspect the railing or where the moving part is moving to find limit switches or sliding switches or sensors..it could have been defective with oil or grease and not making contact to transfer the signal to the controller.

tnx 4 using fixya,
