Question about GE Profile JVB67H Kitchen Hood
Downdraft on my GE range will constantly go up and down when turned on.
try to remove your cooktop and see if the vent unit is in your countertop too tightly. by removing the cooktop it will give the vent more space. if it works that way, then you might have to make more space for both to fit properly. i have seen this happen before and its probably what is causing it to bind and then drop suddenly. i hope you dont have a marble, slate or rock type countertop as they are very hard to trim just a little off to get everything to fit.

try removing the switch from the ribbon connector, and then jumping the two pins momentarily with a screwdriver blade or other metallic tool. It could be that the switch itself is bad. This is the same problem I'm having and I am currently looking for a replacement switch online.

i have seen these units be built in too tight to the conutertop cause the raising portion of your vent to bind on the way down causing it to bounce, hop, thump,and several other noises.
take the cook top out of the countertop and then try the vent and see if it does move smoothe after that.
when they put the top in it pushes against the vent and thats where it is binding.
you might have to cut the counter out more to allow proper clearance.

Folks, I have experienced the same problem several times - in all of my cases the problem was solved by simply opening the back panel and taking out the motor assembly and re-aligning it. Check out this URL for a blow up of what's inside and parts list - http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5130126
The problem is that the arm tends to slip out and therefore won't raise or lower the hood anymore. Be careful when aligning it can be a little tricky - carefully observe the how the motor works outside of the housing via the switch and you will get the idea.
