SOURCE: kitchen hood not venting outside

check to see if the dapper is opening. that is piece of metal in the flue that keep the air from the outside coming in or check if there is something plugging the top part of the flue on the roof. plus you can go roof and look down and see if there is anything blocking it.

SOURCE: hood does not pop up when depressing the push button

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: we have a vented kenmore range hood that is vented

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you may have a clog, in the vent pipe, not uncommon in the winter for wild things to build nest..
their is also a air damper plate, that might be stuck, this damper prevents outside air from blowing back in

Kird801hss- vent will not raise


I had the filter micro switch problem as well. After disassembling everything and manually raising the vent, I took the micro switch assembly apart and wired around the micro switches so it would not happen again in the future. In my model there are two leads leading to the micro switches and one jumper that provides a common lead to both switches. To wire around them you simply need to run a jumper from one of the leads to the other lead completing the circuit and bypassing the switch. I removed all of the mechanical parts of the switch including the springs and plunger mechanisms and then reassembled switch housing and reassemble the rest of the fan housing etcetera. Everything works fine again and I no longer run the risk of at loose filter causing major disassembly work

Will not turn on


Hi
Your kitchen aid hood is not turning on due to a blown fuse or a faulty slide switch. Please check part#21 (Thermal fuse)---

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.

Can this be installed over an island?


Bring a focal point to your kitchen by having an island range hood, combining function and elegant form. A suspended hood is also an efficient way to vent
grease, odors and smoke to the outside from a island stovetop while you cook. You can install an island range hood in just a few hours with the right tools
and knowledge.
1.Wear safety glasses and work gloves. Turn off the electricity to your kitchen at the circuit panel. Cover the circuit breaker with a piece of electrical
tape to prevent people from turning the on switch while you are at work.
2.Lay work drop cloths on your cooktop and floor to catch dust and debris. Mark the duct opening with a pencil in the ceiling, where the island hood will be
installed. Be sure the opening is centered directly above your cooktop. Cut the opening using a hacksaw.
3.Go up to the roof, using a cat's claw and hammer to remove stucco, tiles, sheathing and insulation to make way for the steel venting duct. Drop a
plumb bob down the roof, making sure the line is straight down for the ductwork.
4.Follow the manufacturer's instructions for locations, installing 2-by-2 wooden blocks in the ceiling to hold the ductwork hangers.
5.Install the venting duct from the outside of the home, down to the location of the exhaust vents on the island hood. The ducts should easily slip into each
other. Secure all the duct sections with duct sealing putty, using a putty knife.
6.Screw a roof cap on the end of the duct at the roof. Seal any openings or gaps where the roof, ceiling and duct meet with silicon sealant. Let the sealant
dry, then paint with colors matched to the surrounds.
7.Place your hood upside-down on the floor, with the fan and filter facing upward. Locate and unscrew the metal electrical box cover on the island range
hood, to expose the wiring
8.Install the hood cover to the load-bearing ceiling frame with the package hardware through the four inside mounting corner flanges on the cover.
9.Measure what will be the distance from the bottom of your hood to the cooktop; it should not exceed 30 inches for exhaust efficiency. Have a helper hold
the hood in place while you attach the hood on the hood cover using the included screws. Use a level be sure the hood is level as mounted.
10.Connect the electrical wiring by consulting the manufacturer's suggestions or hire an electrician if you are not familiar with house wiring. Tuck the wires neatly in the hood electrical box and then replace the cover, after connecting the hood wires to the wall wiring.
11.Remove the electrical tape on the circuit breaker, turn on the electricity to your kitchen and test your island range hood.
