Question about Jenn-Air JGD8345 Gas Cooktop

Open Question

Jenn-Air gas cooktop downdraft fan sucks flames away from pans.

Just bought house with new Jenn-Air gas cooktop (Prostyle JDG8348CDP). Even on Low setting, the downdraft fan (between burners and grill) pulls the left front and back burner flames to the side (toward the fan) so much that it is difficult to get even cooking. Should there be a shield next to the fan vent? Or some other solution (other than abandoning those two burners)?

bibman: Sounds like the control switch or possible loose wiring. Take the element out and test the slots for voltage. You should get 220 Volts when on high.


DMA Jennair The fan motor is bad and needs to be replaced.

I suggest a new cooktop as THIS IS THE WORST DESIGNED COOKTOP I HAVE EVER USED. Not enough power, very hard to clean,

Yes. Buy a burner module. Sears sells them also most appliance part stores. (I am assuming you have the model with 2 knobs on the grill side) The electric version of burner modules is around $100 Gas should be similar price.

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.

Downdraft vent on jenn air cooktop


How do you get the inside area of the vent clean from the grease and oils where the filter is?? I have a rectangular box style downdraft that the vent goes into the floor, I pulled the filter, but the box is to slender to get an arm into to scrub the grease....... does the bottom come off, or is it a sealed unit? How do you get all the brease from the bottom if you cannot reach it?

Exhaust fan not starting


Bearings are worn. You should be able to replace with a standard utility fan. You can find them at your local big box hardware store or order online here.
