Question about Jenn-Air JXT5830AD Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

No exhaust in ductless mode

Fan operates well but there is no exhaust vented into the room from the slot in the top face plate. Installation instructions reference re-positioning "side panels for ductless operation" but I can't find them. Even Jenn Air tech support couldn't find them. Do these act as a damper to re-direct airflow through that slot? How do I re-position them? Where are they? Help!

Thermador CVS36R Cook'n'vent vent won't go down and fan stopped workin


You probably will find that the vent is clogged with grease. A switch device works with the vent so the fan operates only when the vent is open and does not operate when the vent is closed. Things should get back to normal after a thorough cleaning unless the fan is defective and won't operate at all.

Hood fan is turning on and off by itself, won't stay on or off.


What devices in the room were checked. A vent hood will sometimes run on what is called a humidistat, and anytime it senses high humidity it will kick the vent fan on. Check to see if this is the issue, if so and this hasn't happened before try changing the humidistat.

I just had a Broan Elite E662 hood installed and it is blowing out instead of pulling air in. I held a tissue up to the filter and it does not pull it up...rather it blows it down. Was something done...


It sounds like the fan blade may be installed upside down, or the entire motor/fan assembly is upside down. Typically, these small motors aren't reversible, so you should check the blade first.

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.

Can fan be lower when operating at full speed


Improper air flow was also my problem. The contractor did a terrible installation job. The duct work was incomplete at the transition piece (he used the under cabinet space as part of the duct) and did not seal the duct to the fan assembly. Both items were not readily visible. Once the duct was correctly installed, the unit works fine. Remember a down draft is never as good as an overhead vent.

Removing the fan


most fans dont come out. but it is not hard to take the hood down. there are most likly four screws in the top going down into the hood. undo them, making sure the hood is proped up. them is should just lift out of the backing plate and there is your bird. to put it back up just put it back on the backing plate then put the bults back in and make sure the vent is on properly.

Does not take up the smoke or steam - 2nd unit


It really depends on the exit. If the duct exit has to travel really far before exiting it tends to not have as much suction. And like solution 1 said. Make sure the plate was removed
