Your control module is overheating because of the oven just below it. Be sure to use the exhaust fan every time you turn on the oven, which helps to cool the controls.

Whirlpool SC8720EDB cooktop stove independent vent switch is not starting downdraft exhaust fan, but the exhaust fan works fine when left side burners were turned on


Can you get to the switch terminals and try jumping them out with a piece of insulated wire? That would tell you if the switch is defective (my suspicion). Please be careful not to touch any live terminals - only the wire insulation you use for the jumper.

My oven was beeping this morning when I got up. It is a 20 year old Kenmore classic grill downdraft range. My husband said it had a F------- on the controls. The oven was not on and has not been us


Hello Terri;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I guess your must have rebooted your main control board like your would on your home computer.

All appliance that have a control board require a surge protector. You can purchase individual wall socked surge protector for about $20.00 USD. The slightest change in your power supply which changes depending on the time of day will disrupt or knock out your main control board.

You may also have rebooted other electrical components on the verge of failure.

If this happens again and the reboot does not work, inspect the control board for burn marks or melted connections. BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE CONTROL BOARD GROUND YOURSELF BY TOUCHING BARE METAL. STATIC ELECTRICITY WILL KNOCK OUT A CONTROL BOARD.

Keep in touch if this problem happens again. Provide me with a model number.

I used my grill for the first time, & the downdraft didn't work we'll, the house filled with smoke & eventually the downdraft shut off and I had to finish cooking in a pan. My Jenn-Air is...


The downdraft is electric so there must be something malfunctioning with it. It is a high volume downdraft fan that is to be vented to the outside. Could it be that something has clogged the vent hole up, not allowing the fan to evacuate the smoke?

While I am not a big fan of Jenn-Air, their fans are usually high quality if they are installed correctly, with the proper vent lines.

Kenmore Classic Grille model 911-469-8813 error F2


Over time I have had to replace the control module at the front of the oven. It gets baked by the oven heat, and unfortunately costs hundreds of dollars to replace. I have avoided further failures by making sure the downdraft exhaust fan is ALWAYS on when the oven is on. This seems to keep it cool enough.

My new home already has a hood vent for the range. I have a gas Jenn air downdraft range. I prefer to use the hood vent as the downdraft is not very efficient. Do I have to connect the blower on my range...


The poupose of either is to eliminate any smoke created by the range or grille and move as much of the cooking odors to the outside. I wouldn't use both at the same time, but if the hood is vented to the outside, it would be just fine to use only the hood. Aregular cleaning will be necesssary. The downdraft has limits as to the distance it will efficiently exhaust air. Flex hose should not be used. And excessive bends or vent length, cuts into the efficiency.

Cold air draft


the only way is to block off/check the flapper., if your not going to use for the winter you can disconnect the vent from under the cabinet temporaily and close off there till you can gain access to check outside grill

Install a Thermador UCV36 cook'n'vent


Hi schmidt_rich,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You took over as owner builder when your builder "took the $ and ran". You are installing kitchen cabs now and discovered the PVC vent pipe (which goes into the foundation and out the side of the house) is in the wrong place for the location of the downdraft unit and integral blower. The vent is actually under the electrical connection panel. You were told initially( 2 yrs ago when you bought the downdraft cook'n'vent) there could be no bends in the exhaust fan route or it would change the effectiveness. Does anyone know if it is ok to put a bend in the connection to the vent? Or do you need to redo your kitchen cabinets?

I can syphathise. I have had to deal with this same problem. I have found that one ell will not degrade the effectiveness enough to notice. If you need more then you may need to adjust cabinets.

Feel free contact me again!

Kenmore range


Ours did that too. Grease and smoke gets in under the plastic and corrodes the circuits in the controller. At first the F1 would show up every couple weeks, then it became permanent. We did have to replace the circuit assembly. Yes make sure the vents are working, and keep the front of the panel clean.
