Rancid grease smell ge downdraft jvb37h

Grease is dripping under downdraft into cabinet. I have two filters in the system, which I clean about once a month in the dishwasher. I always wipe away visible grease after cooking, but can't reach my hand down into the unit very far. How do I clean all the grease out of the unit?

SOURCE: No Air suction into downdraft.

there won't be any noticable suction like with a vacuum unless the cfm rating is very high. the distance of the hood from the cooking surface is a factor too as you are sucking in room air besides the stove fumes and steam.

SOURCE: Self clean light blinks, oven does not work

You were right. The locking mechanism switch somehow became jammed and the oven thought the door was locked, even though I could open the door. I didn't know if I was supposed to take the top off and moving the lever back and forth did not help. Finally I turned the oven on and just kind of jiggled the latch in the unlocked position. I kind of moved it back and forth furiously and the cleaning light stopped blinking and the oven light came on. I'm glad it is working now, but I will be manually cleaning my oven from now on! Thanks for your help.

SOURCE: Grease caked on the oven from a spill

First--Look for a couple release levers around the bottom of the oven. You should remove the bottom and scrape the spilled grease off. If you can't remove it, clean off what you can before using a standard ovencleaner. It will still need to be washed well before firing it up.
Easy Off Oven Cleaner has been around for years.

My downdraft vent no longer removes cooking fumes and smells for days after cooking. We have changed the screens, but still have residue coming from the vent inside the cabinet. Does this vent need to


Remove the motor together with the blower wheel, go to the local self service car-wash and use the engine de-greaser cycle (if not available, buy a can at the auto supply, spray the fan blade and let sit for a while) and get all the grease of the fan blades. make sure the fan blades are cleaned thoroughly. the fan will now ran quietly and will remove all the grease away. in the future, clean the filters often.

My husbands wants to know how to clean the air filters that are under the spacemaker icrowave oven and above the stove ?


If your unit is venting to the outside, you would be using one or two grease filters, which can be cleaned, usually with warm soapy water.

If your unit is set to recirculate, then you should be using a charcoal filter, which cannot be cleaned, and must be replaced.

Details and instructions are to be found in your owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (including filters) by entering your full model number here.

Dosnt clean very good ?


It could be a build up of grease in the filter OR the dishwasher may need a cleaner run through to clean out any grease in th pipes (best done about once a month )

Need to clean upper filter, not bottom filter, does grille pop out?


Yes the grill pops out. It snaps in to place. Behind there is a Carbon Filter, and cannot be washed. The internet says the should be changed every 3 to 6 months, yet we use our microwave once a week and change mine every 9 months.
The carbon filter elimiates smoke, odors and grease build up on cabinets and walls.

We buy filters from HoodFilterFactory because they can make any size we need.

I hop this helps

How do i service the grease trap without calling a service man to do it?


Be clear that an in-ground grease interceptor cannot be cleaned without a grease trap pumping company. We are referring to a metal grease trap that sits under the 3-compartment sink. Yes it can be cleaned by anyone (crazy enough). I still suggest a professional service company perform the task. I have full directions or instructions now at www.greasetrap.ca/grease-trap-cleaning.htm . Old clothes and a mask are a must.

Fan has a humming noise and locking up


a.if there were a dead bird inside, you'd know it from the smell! if the outside vent has the proper hood on it, it's doubtful a bird could get into it. possibly a roof-rat, but still- the smell!
b. have you 'de-greased' the filter lately? clogged filter can cause airflow problems, as well as allowing fan blades to become greased up and unbalanced, which could cause a noisy condition. if you can- remove the filter unit and check the fan blades for crud. use a gentle application of windex, rubbing alcohol, or some other gentle solvent to clean the blades. the leading edges usually pick up the most crud. you should be able to see this! carefully, using q-tips, or a small brush, clean off the crud! the fan's probably out of balance. WD40 works pretty well, too. also lubricates the shaft bushing that the blades are attached to. make sure the fan is turned off! duh!! good luck! also- soak the filter in hot water and a good de-greaser for a while, 'til you can see light through it. it's probably aluminum mesh- so use very hot water and a goodly amount of 'grease cutting' dish detergent. rinse well.
once again- good luck! the filter is probably held in place by clips. once removed, you will probably need a flashlight to work on the fan blades. put paper towels, or newspaper down to catch drips!

My spacemaker keep dripping grease on my wall, what should I clean?


I would suspect a clogged grease filter (which can be cleaned) and/or charcoal filter (which cannot be cleaned and must be replaced).

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

The manual will give you the details.

Also be sure the hood vent exhaust fan is working correctly.

Hi absimp,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You are having trouble cleaning your downdraft hood...you are able to remove filters and clean but there seems to be grease build on the hood as well....The smell is really bad but you can't get down in the hood to clean. Is there anyway to remove the hood in order to clean it better??

The short answer is; not really. But don't be dicouraged yet, you shouldn't have to . There is a brush on a long handle that looks like the kind of brush you would use to wash a glass. I wrap the brush part with a small cloth that is wet with cleaner and just use from above rinsing the cloth as nessessary. If you have trouble finding a brush long enough just go to a plumbing supply and buy a brush made for cleaning the soot out of a boiler. If they know your problem they weill be happy to help.

Feel free contact me again!
