The filter elements are mostly likely not correctly in place so the latch is not tripping the micro-switch. Using a flash light this was clear by looking down into the front edge of the vent unit. I could see the element edge and the latch of the filter element. It wasn't latched tight. I used a paint scraper (two). Gently i nserted it while also using a flash light to see. I was able to lever and jiggle the filter element back into place and latch it. This activates the control. Then the unit would raise. I double checked the filter latches to be sure they were tightly closed.

The only way to reset is to switch off at the power point and switch it back on.

Dishwasher won't run. Normal light and cancel light flashing cont


Hi,


The door latch pulls the door tightly closed to prevent water leakage around the door. It is also designed to prevent operation while the door is open. The door latch works in concert with the door switch to ensure that the door is tightly closed and latched.The door switch is a separate part from the door latch and is found inside the cabinet. The switch is off when the door is open. Depressing the switch closes the circuit and enables dishwasher operation. Closing the door does not depress the switch all the way. Only when the door is closed and latched, does the door fully depress the switch.

If the door latch is not properly aligned it may not pull the door tightly closed and the door switch will not be fully depressed. Unless the switch is fully depressed the dishwasher will not operate. It is a simple matter to determine whether the door latch is the problem. Simply open the door, close the latch and select a cycle and depress the switch. Note that if the test is successful, with the door open, the dishwasher will operate and water may spray out. Make sure to first remove all tools from inside the dishwasher. Do not reach inside the dishwasher during the test. Now, inspect the cabinet where the door makes contact with it and locate the door switch. It may have a protruding button or spike or more likely it is a hole with a piece of metal or plastic inside it. You must fully depress that switch. If the switch is recessed, then use a non-conductive object, such as a wooden pencil, to depress the switch.

Thank you !!

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.

How can you manually open the Kitchen Aid KIRD861HSS?


By removing the decorative cover plate you somewhat expose the units inner workings. Carefully, insert a small sharp object into the unit at the point in which the micro-switch(es) are exposed. The micro-switch(es) will appear as small little plastic tabs that are poking out. While simultaneously depressing the power button, insert the sharp object into the micro-switch(es) closing the circuit. The down draft will raise enough to the point in which you can re-seat or install the filter thus making it operational.

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).
