Minimal 6" duct no more than 20 feet long and 90's count as 5 feet. 90's must not be closer than 18" this will meet local codes regarding the venting also an approved exhaust hood. (not a dryer vent)

We're buying a JES9900BAF for an island and found ducting instructions in the installation guide. Go to and find the page for your range model. Then click on the "Specs/Literature" tab (it's about 2/3 down the page). The installation guide is a PDF document.

I have a Jenn-Air JGS9900BDS purchased almost new at a scratch and dent place last year. The downdraft is blowing air out versus sucking air in. Because of we fired our contractor, we can't go back to...

I just installed a JES9900BAB that I got from a Sears Outlet Store two months ago. The blower motor had a sticker on it that said not to reverse the motor and intake sides because it would not operate correctly. I bet your contractor actually disassembled the motor and reversed the intake 180 degrees in order to make the installation easier. This would cause the down draft to blow instead of ****. With the exhaust of the fan, part that goes through the floor, closest to the back of the range, the inlet should be on the left and the motor should be on the right.

Jenn air downdraft

They should be pretty close to the same, if not, it would would very inexpensive and easy to modify or adapt the new one. Mostly the vent piping would have to be modified. Like I said though, you shouldnt have a problem at all.

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.

Will not cook properly with downdraft vent on. JDS9860AAP Range

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.

Stopping cold air

Depending on where it is vented you probably wont be able to stop the air. Take the grill out and see if there is a door flap that is supposed to close when the fan is off. If not your out of luck.
