Question about GE Monogram ZVB36 36" Downdraft Kitchen Hood
The crank arm which raises and lowers the hood has jammed most likely against the vertical bearing guide in the center of the box.
a. If the hood is up, support it somehow so it doesn't crash down. Unplug the whole unit.
b. Pull off the box covering the motor and electricals.
c. Pull off the motor/gearbox assembly. Careful here, as this will release the crank arm which may still be under some load, causing the gearbox assembly to rotate on you.
d. Bend everything back into shape.
e. You may need a new crank arm or gearbox if the shaft to the crank arm is bent.
f. Reassemble. This is most easiy done if the hood is held up by someone or something.
