You can purchase a 2 burner cartridge. However, the problem I'm having with that is the gas is too high and is unable to cook anything on low.

SOURCE: Jenn-air downdraft blower doesn't work

thiknin thats a sealed unit, however imn sure they got it into a housing so i guess if you lloked close enough ther ewpuild be a few screws to gain access to the fan itself and with it open a quailty degreaser should work wonders in cleaning it!

not that I know of but the fans on these ranges usually have multiple speeds. Try using the lowest. The fans are very strong on them. Hope this helps. good luck.

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.

Electric shock from cooktop, didn't trip breaker,


Where did you smell the smell was it from the fan switch. turn the power off and take the screw out of where the fan switch is and check the wires to the switch and the switch itself. sometimes the jennair cooktops have issues with that switch. let me know how it goes

Does stove-top need downdraft if microwave has oven-hood combo?


We have a stove with no downdraft, and a microwave with a hood above it. It works just fine. I expect you could keep your downdraft and put a microwave without a hood above it, and that would also work. I don't think, however, you can buy an above the range mocrowave oven, that slides in on brackets, which will not have a hood.

Downdraft


I would double check that the installer used the correct vent hood outside. The correct one has a spring that keeps the outdoor flap closed when not in use. Cleaning the outdoor flap area may also help it seal a little better. Even if the right hood was installed, you might check to see there is a spring present (or signs that there was one.

I have never had air blow out the downdraft, but I do feel cold travel to the fan unit which makes the floor cold in front of the range.

Clean vent


The vent (also known as grill assembly in GE literature) comes off after removing the two screws at the top of the unit and gently sliding the entire assembly to the left about an inch. This will allow the vent to be cleaned of grease, hair, etc., as well as giving some access to the areas behind the vent.
