Retractable vent stuck

I removed the filter for the retractable vent for cleaning and pushed the vent down without putting the filter in. Now the vent is stuck and I am unable to raise it since the safety feature won't allow the vent to be raised without the filters in place. Is there a manual override to raise the vent?

Testimonial: "That did it! I had to remove the range in order to get access to the vent cover screws. As soon as I pressed the filter sensors, the vent raised. Thanks!"

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid downdraft hood stuck in retracted position

The filters need to be seated properly to complete an electrical safety circuit. This keeps the unit from operating without the filters. The best way I have found to fix them when they get dislodged in the closed position is by using two spatulas. The first is used to move the filter forward a bit and the second is used to keep it pushed tightly forward to complete the circuit.

SOURCE: Raised vent is Rising after being lowered

Hi,

My RV30S was installed by a qualified service technician in approximately the year 2000. It finally developed a mind of its own. It would raise up and run for a bit and then stop....sometimes it wouldn't raise up or go down....it would switch from fast to slow to stop.....it became frustratingly unusable....
...today i finally took it upon myself to take it apart and I determined that the controller board had fried.


Before I go on -> Disclaimer: These units are hard-wired to live A.C. power. These units must be serviced by technically qualified service personnel. I do NOT recommend anyone to attempt this service. I've worked in the past as an electrical engineer by trade. But to save you time and money you can shop and buy the parts you need yourself and then hire an appliance service technician to safely install them for you. This way they can't rip you off by over charging for the parts and you can certainly count the hours for the install.


The controller board is shown here. In my case, this diode fried.

I found a replacement controller on E-Bay for only $82 bucks and change. At the time of this writing they had 14 in stock.

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Dacor-Vent-Hood-Control-Board-DA-72881_W0QQitemZ120363680495QQcmdZViewItemQQptZRanges_Cooking_Appliances?hash=item120363680495&_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116

It sounds like you may be having the same problem. But please be sure to hire a qualified appliance service technician to do the work. If he quotes a price for the controller board anything over 82 bucks, you will indeed will be in a better position to negotiate a better deal.


Hope this helps anyone that is having or will have the same problem with an older RV30....

Exterior door stuck closed manually retract ****** remove knobs KWIKSET


You will probably need to replace the latch assembly. There is a small rivet that holds part of the latch together, and it also acts as a pivot point for a small piece that retracts the latch. If it gets bent, the latch won't retract fully, but you might be able to push it back and get the door open.

How do I take out a a.c filter to clean without damaging it


Good Morning Maria - Some air conditioner filters are removed by sliding out from the right-hand side. Others, you need to push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position and open the front panel. Grasp the filter by center and pull up and out the filter can be wash using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing. Keep in mind that instead of washing you may vacuum the filter clean as well.

How to replace cabin air filter. model : kia amanti 2005


On the 05 Amanti, open the glove box, take everything out, then push the box past the stops. It will drop down more and expose a wire that has spring tension on it. With one hand pull the wire a little farther out and with the other hand feed the end of the wire out of the glove box. Slowly let the wire retract - don't let it snap back. You will now see the entry into the cabin air filter. Push down on the 2 tabs and remove the faceplate. Remove the filter. Put new filter back in and reverse the above directions

Kitchenaid dryer heats for first 15 min


you have bad gas coils.the coils on top of the gas valve need to be replaced,when they are failing,they will work fine until they heat up and then they shut down,when they cool down they will work for a while until they heat up again,the part number is 12001349 and they are around 45 bucks for the both of them,take out the two phillips screws, remove the cover,remove the wire connector do one coil at a time,also the coil with three wires has a metal spacer that stays on the post it slides down onto,sometimes it gets stuck inside the coil you're removing,if it's inside the old coil remove it and slide it back on the post and then slide the new coil down onto the post and plug your wires back on,put the cover back on and the two screws.push on the wire connectors to make sure they pushed on tight and your down.while your in the dryer if you haven't cleaned it out now is a good time to do so,this should be down once a year moreso with gas so you don't have a fire,vac out the dryer,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow the motor off and blow out the gas tube where the fire lights,remove and clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean out the vent line and the outside vent,if it's a long run from the dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,if you do this your clothes will dry on time,and it will be more energy efficient,the motor and other parts will last longer,if you need anymore help let me know,good luck

Cook 'n Vent Downdraft Up/Down Mechanism Replacing


just the switch should be replacable. My vent has a screw at each end (philips flatheads - accessible only when vent is up) just under the top cap. Removing the screws and cap should give you access to the switch. Just make sure you cut your breaker off first.

Power antenna does not go all the way up, does not power retract


Does the motor continue to run even though the mast doesn't retract? Is there a loud 'click - click - click" as it tries to retract and extend or more of a chattering noise? Did you clean and lubricate the spool into which the toothed belt goes when the antenna retracts? Use an all weather grease (white lithium). Did you clean the teeth on the gear that drives the belt? There is a small metal guide where the belt meets the drive gear, sometime this wears and allows the belt to slip on the gear. Pull the giude straight out, then rotate it 180 degress and reinstall.
