Question about Kenmore 59946 Kitchen Hood
Every time I hit the button to raise the downdraft it goes up then immediately goes back down. It used to do this sporadically; I would have to hit the button several times, or physically hold up the hood when it raised in order to get it to stay up. Now it never stays up.
On my kenmore elite downdraft model number 233.59946090 the same thing was happening to me. my unit would go up and down automatically, sometimes 5 or 6 times in a row.
the problem was the top button that activates the up and down motion was too close to the switch underneath it. the fix is to remove the 2 screws on the side with the vent speed control. under that you will see 2 more screws that hold the entire switch assembly on. loosen these screws and move down, this will lower the switch so it is not hitting the underside of the button to hard and mistakenly cycling the switch on and off.
