Kitchenaid downdraft retractable vent

My retractable vent just stopped working. I did not replace or adjust the vents. I used it one day successfully and the next time that I pressed the button for it to turn on, and nothing happens. I have checked the electrical connection and it is working fine. Any suggestions?

    My KitchenAid Retractable Downdraft Vent Systemn Model KIRD801 keeps going up and then down whenever I push the button. It will not stay up. I tried numerous times until now when it is stuck halfway - won't go up, won't go down and the blower won't turn on. I can hear the motor running. I turned off the breaker to stop the motor from running because I was afraid of what might happen if I left it running like that. How do I fix this?

Your drive motor arm is not making contact with either of the two limit switches at 6 and 12 positions. Your arm may be loose, gear stripped, broken bracket. Turn off the power at the breaker panel and remove the vent pipe cover box (4 nuts) see what is going on inside. Tellstar

Check for power going into the switch. (you need a meter) If the switch is set to "on" there should be power going in and out. Find a good ground or use the white wire to test. If there is, just follow the path of electricity. If you do not have a meter this is next to impossible to do.

Kenmore retractable vent keeps randonly going up and down , sometimes for 6-7 times before it will stop.How do we fix it?


I hope you have the $400 appliance insurance. I had the same problem in a new house purchase. First the downdraft wouldnt work, and then wouldnt stop.
It was a micro switch and motherboard issue. Took four visits by the (insurance paid for) techie to get and fit the right part. Good luck

It sounds like a mechanical adjustment. A lot of times moon roofs will have adjustment screws to make small alignment adjustments. You may have to move the glass to various positions to access them, but that is where I would start.

Auto shut down due over heat


Very Very Carefully disassemble the laptop, and clean out the processor fan, and any other "vent" looking things. Lots of times hair (especially pet), dust and other pollutants will clog these, or they may stop working all together, and need replaced.

Fuse blowing


Your exhaust vent is blocked.
Timed dry is High heat.
Permanent press is a medium heat and intermittent.
The dryer does not get as hot as often in Permanent press mode. Therefore the fuse does not reach critacal and blow.
Remove the vent at the rear of the dryer and run a timed load.
If it dries correctly, repair your vent blockage.
If not, repost and I will lead you to the next step.

Goodman GMP075-3 Random Incomplete startup


If the draft motor starts then shuts right off and then a red light comes on usually means that there is a blockage somewhere. Check the pressure switch line, make sure that it is clear and the hole in the heater that the pressure switch vaccum line runs to is open. If that checks out then make sure that your flue vent cap is on and that it is not pressed down on the flue vent and that the gases can vent properly

sears labor is 137 plus parts. that is something that would need to be looked at. it could be a few different things. if he is handy he can open it up to see if anything is misaligned or broken. the vent may even just be a little crooked and once straight may go up and down like normal
