Jenn-Air 8130 installation problem

I am replacing my old Jenn-Air cooktop with downdraft with a JED 8130. The fan assembly on my old unit was pointed toward the floor and my ductwork went through the floor, under cabinets and outside. The assembly in the new unit is directed toward the wall. Is there a way to rotate this assembly so that I can use my current ductwork?

    I have the same problem with a model JED8430 It appears that you need a special tool to get inside the plenum to get at the srews. However it appears that the plenum is one piece. Can you help???

Rotate the blower to the proper angle
needed for your installation. The blower
can be swiveled 90°. To rotate the blower:
a) Remove the filter from the blower housing
b) Loosen, but do not remove, the nuts
around blower inlet.
c) Rotate the blower housing for the
proper angle.
d) Retighten the four nuts and install the
filter.
try this its general for this type of cooktop

The downdraft is electric so there must be something malfunctioning with it. It is a high volume downdraft fan that is to be vented to the outside. Could it be that something has clogged the vent hole up, not allowing the fan to evacuate the smoke?

While I am not a big fan of Jenn-Air, their fans are usually high quality if they are installed correctly, with the proper vent lines.

Downdraft vent on jenn air cooktop


How do you get the inside area of the vent clean from the grease and oils where the filter is?? I have a rectangular box style downdraft that the vent goes into the floor, I pulled the filter, but the box is to slender to get an arm into to scrub the grease....... does the bottom come off, or is it a sealed unit? How do you get all the brease from the bottom if you cannot reach it?

Exhaust fan not starting


Bearings are worn. You should be able to replace with a standard utility fan. You can find them at your local big box hardware store or order online here.
