There are solenoids that turn the gas on to a burner. If they're bad it won't supply gas to the burner. There is also a mother board on that model that could also be the problem. When it comes to this brand it's difficult to diagnose without being there. If the downdraft is not working then I would guess that the mother board could be the problem...sorry I couldn't help more.
The poupose of either is to eliminate any smoke created by the range or grille and move as much of the cooking odors to the outside. I wouldn't use both at the same time, but if the hood is vented to the outside, it would be just fine to use only the hood. Aregular cleaning will be necesssary. The downdraft has limits as to the distance it will efficiently exhaust air. Flex hose should not be used. And excessive bends or vent length, cuts into the efficiency.
I can't imagine directing the downdraft vent back up to a traditional hood type system. Why bother, just don't use the downdraft or get a cooktop without a down draft and save money.
In granite, yes for any cooktop as long as someone can cut the correct size hole. Cooktops must be installed so the top is just about flush with the countertop. They all come with a template for cutting the right size hole in the countertop.
How do you get the inside area of the vent clean from the grease and oils where the filter is?? I have a rectangular box style downdraft that the vent goes into the floor, I pulled the filter, but the box is to slender to get an arm into to scrub the grease....... does the bottom come off, or is it a sealed unit? How do you get all the brease from the bottom if you cannot reach it?
as you mention before sometime run and sometimes do not run.
youll have to start by checking those items and make sure they are not damage or obstructed. I have some wiring diagrams for that model, if you would like for me to email them to you, please let me know.
I hope that will help you
open your cabniet up under the unit you will have to disconnect the venting in this will give you access to the blower section also make sure the filter is not hitting it inside they usally install a screen to prevent this but maybe yours is missing
