Kenmore retractable vent keeps randonly going up and down , sometimes for 6-7 times before it will stop.How do we fix it?


I hope you have the $400 appliance insurance. I had the same problem in a new house purchase. First the downdraft wouldnt work, and then wouldnt stop.
It was a micro switch and motherboard issue. Took four visits by the (insurance paid for) techie to get and fit the right part. Good luck

I have a Kenmore Vacuum cleaner 116.24212. The retractable electric cord won't retract. How can I fix it?


The retraction mechanizm is likely jammed. Mostly likely the cord has jumped it's groove in the retraction wheel/hub. If you are good with tools there is a 70% chance you can get it to work again with a basic DCR operation. Most mechanical problems can be solved using this simple rule: Dissassemble Clean and Reassemble.

CAUTION: The retract mech has a powerful spring inside, avoid exposing. Most retract mech units are rivoted closed so consumers won't poke thier eye out.
CAUTION: UNPLUG THE UNIT

Open the unit from the bottom and the top lid of the canister should come off.
The retract mech should be obvious as it is where the cord comes into the unit.
Look for the cord being bound by iteslf either on top or underneath (lie two cordes in one groove)
Remove any binding.
If you see no debris or obsticals for the cord to retract (where it is getting stuck)
Your spring could have sprung!
Do you feel and retract at all?
Can you locate the releae mechagnism?
Does the Release button seem to function? When Pressed it should take pressure off of the cord hub.
The retract mech may need replaced. Overall the cost will be about $60 for parts.

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.

Downdraft vent won't stay down. Push the button and it retracts normally, then pops right back up?


check your bottom limit switch - i'm guessing its bad. the unit doesn't stop operating til it trips a (working) limit switch, if the switch is bad it'll cyle right past it and go back up until it hits the top limit switch (again).

Pivot arm in telescoping downdraft system sticks when closing


Having the same problem. Unit worked well for 1 1/2 years and then suddenly it dropped after I was thru using it and pushed the arrow for it to go down after it dropped the power wouldn't turn off - had to unplug it.. Repairman came out , took it out, lubricated it , re-installed and next time it went up fine, vented fine but when it went down it dropped again and power wouldn't turn off again. I am hesitant to call him out again unless I can figure out what else might fix the problem. I have noticed that the top piece now seems to be bowed a bit. I guess I can have him take out the cooktop but think there must be enough room for it if it worked fine for the 1 1/2 years. It is a soapstone countertop.

My 7 1/2 year old Thermador CVS36RB Cook 'n' Vent won't retract


sears labor is 137 plus parts. that is something that would need to be looked at. it could be a few different things. if he is handy he can open it up to see if anything is misaligned or broken. the vent may even just be a little crooked and once straight may go up and down like normal

Kitchenaid downdraft retractable vent


Your drive motor arm is not making contact with either of the two limit switches at 6 and 12 positions. Your arm may be loose, gear stripped, broken bracket. Turn off the power at the breaker panel and remove the vent pipe cover box (4 nuts) see what is going on inside. Tellstar
