    Is the downdraft fan pulling air properly? The reason I ask is because it seems that you have too much heat building up where it shouldn't be. The downdraft fan is designed to remove excess heat (and smoke, of course)... so if it's blocked somewhere, not enough air will flow through the duct and thereby cause heat to build at the cooktop.

    Check under the cook top for a crushed/crimped/collapsed aluminum duct. Then go outside and find where the duct exhausts. Check the exhaust for blockage (bird nests are common).

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.

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.

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.

If you're talking about a downdraft style cooktop, you will just need to measure the discharge vent diameter and shape and match that up. Not all are the same shape but most are 6" diameter
