Question about Gaggenau VL051707 Hob Ventilator: AS 081-051 Connecting Element to fit GB 031-707 Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Is the Gaggenau VL051-707 compatible with any other fans?

And, what is the CFM?

I bought the Hob Ventilator and am trying to find options for the fan (if any). I also can't seem to track downt the CFM for the GB 031-107, which is the prescribed unit. It says it can be mounted remotely (outside wall), but I'm hesitant to put it 20 ft away unless I know it has a decent CFM rating...

    FIrst, thanks Master_Tech. I'll mount mine in the crawl space, but away from the kitchen. Do you know if any other fan might work? Something that is not $1200? I was wondering if one of the Bosch units might work. Made by the same company and hundreds less.

    BTW, I picked-up a used on (freak-find) for $25. Works great and saved over $1000.

Not really due to the wiring you will have to rewire the unit see the power in and control power to the ventlator comes from the countertop unit.. unless you rewire it. See the black molex plug under ventlator that is the connection

The plastic housing on the ventilator fan can it be removed. the reason I ask is the fan is making a noise and may be it needs cleaning or oiling.

The ventilator fan on what exactly?

If you're talking about a small 4" x 4" fan on a computer, you simply replace the entire fan. Remove the old one, get the part number, google the part number, order new fan, replace fan.

Cooker delonghi professional dfs903 6 ring hob has terible fan like noise whenever you turn the oven on which has now become unbearable and occurs whether using the grill, the oven on fan setting or not....

i had the same problem, the noise is coming from a circular fan located under the hob itself. not from the fan at the back of the oven.its a cooling fan.i bought a new one online around £70 and got a local gas fitter to install it. its a real big job and most if not all of the gas connections to the hob have to be disconnected its a big job.but worth it.
i have the same problem with the door,thats what im looking for.
if i find a solution ill let you know

I have a dayton kitchen exhaust blower mod no. 4hz65, 1/25 hp, 1550 rpm, 115 volts, 1.5 amps, 8 inches. it does not seem to do the job, do i need a stronger one?

Remember air will only move as fast as the size of the exhaust pipe in relationship to the fans ability to push. Make sure yours is the proper size for the fans volume.

The ventilator fan causes the water to evaporate from the drain pan. There may also be a heater element to do it as well. Without it nothing is making the water evaporate so it is overflowning. Might be the fan motor or the switch that is a problem.

Install a new ststem cooling fan

as i recall, the fan is at the back just under the hob and is removable without removing the hobtop - just held in by 3-4 screws. if i'm wrong and hobtop has to be raised, this is quite easy. take off the side panels and you will see 2 screws each side holding the hobtop on. don't confuse them with the screws which hold the plate retaining bracket in place but it is all quite obvious. as a thought, are you sure the fan is faulty? the fact it is not operating doesn't mean it is faulty. the fan is turned on by a fan stat which may also be faulty.
