Question about Thermador UCV36A 36" Universal Cook 'n' Vent Downdraft Kitchen Hood

Open Question

I have an old Thermador cv 136 electric cooktop with downdraft. I'd like to replace it with a gas cooktop. Does Thermador make a gas cooktop compatible with the old downdraft unit? (label on downdraft unit says its for models CV136 and CV336). Are any other brands compatible with this downdraft system. Thanks! Greg

SOURCE: Downdraft doesn't alway go down and up.

I have the same problem. Seems to be pretty common that the motor that raises the unit goes bad. Ours is 2 1/2 years old and has not seen that much use....that motor should not have failed that soon...and this is a high end product!!! I have been quoted $289 for a replacement motor and $150 for labor!! So, $450 bucks....gads. The unit, new, cost about $900, as I recall.

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.

Replacing an old jenn air electric cook top with new 30" down draft gas cooktop. Need to know how to secure the cooktop to the granite countertop.


You should just be able to set the cooktop in after you attach the downdraft, usually there are tabs on the downdraft that clamp on to the granite cutout. There is probably a closed-cell foam strip that runs under the lip of the cooktop, I would just make sure it seals to the granite properly (no gaps) and put a couple dabs of silicone in between the lip of the cooktop and the granite. Usually the cooktop is heavy enough that the silicone will keep it from moving around.

Downdraft vent unit is stuck halfway.


You'll have to remove it and manually reverse the drive gear. Hopefully, it didn't get stripped.

Thermador cook top with down draft ventalation


I would think you can. Most of the cooktops are 240v and the vents are 120v, so the vent may be feeding off of one of the cooktop's hot wires. My vent is fed from it's own receptacle but is harnessed along with the cooktop's 240v.
