Re: help

Is this the one with the slide power unit? If so, the slider could be defective. First, have a look at the it full of gunk? If so, you might be able to clean it out. With the power off, get some brake cleaner from the local auto supply guy. Spray it liberally into the slider and move it around...The dripage will be messy. Put a bunch of paper toweling under it to catch the stuff. It is not flammable but you should wait for it to dry for a few minutes before restoring power. Still with the power off and the motor/fan exposed...does it turn easily? If not, you may have an issue there. Gunk or bad bearings. Fix that up.

My Broan range hood keeps going up and down. Will not stop. I unplugged it and plugged back in but keeps going up and down. The hood is almost 2 yrs old. Pls help. Thank you.

This sounds like something has got into the track area and is setting off the safety. they are designed to stop raising or lowering if they meet any resistance and anything in the track area will cause it to happen in both directions

Thermador cook top with down draft ventalation

I would think you can. Most of the cooktops are 240v and the vents are 120v, so the vent may be feeding off of one of the cooktop's hot wires. My vent is fed from it's own receptacle but is harnessed along with the cooktop's 240v.

Kitchen Hood

Hi absimp,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You are having trouble cleaning your downdraft 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.

Unit will sometimes not turn on

NASCAR...I'm thinking more like the switch. If you can, with the power off gain access to the switch wiring. find the lead that goes to the power and the motor. Connect them directly (you might need a paper clip). Tape it all up securely and fire up the power. If it will know about the switch...if not, you might look at the motor. By the way...check that motor should turn easily when you give it a spin. Motors of the type used in fans generally don't degrade in performance unless they get gummed up with kitchen grease. Clean the grease off with WD 40.

If I'm not mistaken, these are the same as the Dacor range vents. If thats the case, we have seen a LOT of bad control boards on these, but I can't say I've ever had one with quite the symptoms you are describing. You may just need to reset the filter timer, as that light comes on every 40 hours of use I belive. But I think you said you have already done that. If you have cleared the light per the instructions and it just keeps coming back on, then you probably do have a bad control board. That should be located on the lower right of the unit behind a small square acces hole, if its like the model I am familiar with. They arent too hard to change, just make a diagram of all the wires before you pull em off and make sure to turn of the power first. One more thing, if the filter light doesnt come on after you reset it, try taking the blower motor box of the front of the unit and checking the 3 prong connector between the fan and the vent and make sure it hasn't come undone or that one of the terminals hasnt backed out of the connector, causing a poor contact. Good Luck!
