Dacor downdraft vent

Remodeling kitchen
can I change top piece from white to stainless steel? We just recently replaced our 30" white Dacor cooktop for a stainless steel. The countertop downdraft ventilation lid is in black, located behind the cooktop and would like to purchase one in stainless steel to match the new cooktop. Our downdraft is in good working order and do not wish to replace the entire mechanism at this time. Please inform us if there is a replacement lid. It does not rise, only flips back to open.
We have taken the old lid to metal fabricators and they cannot duplicate it. Please advise......Pauline

How do you get the light bulb out of the hood?


there is a tool (suction cup) that dacor provides with unit or you can order the "kit" online for $30. i used some gloves with latex coating on palms to get "decent grip" to spin it out. that stainless stell rim actually pops out on my ventilation hood....it is similar to recessed lighting baffles...spring loaded....it may give you a bit more room to manuever your fingers.

The fan buttons on prv36s ventilation unit do not activate with a gentle touch any more. What can be done to correct this?


It's hard to say. It depends what caused the problem. If the cause is simple wear then replacing the control unit is really the only thing you can do. However if moisture, grease or grime has managed to get in and around the contacts under the buttons then cleaning would help. The problem is that the only way to clean that area is to disassemble the control unit. So your going to have ask your self just how annoying it is. If it's becoming unusable then it should be replaced. So you really have nothing to loss by attempting to clean it. It really depends on your level of comfort with taking things apart.
I would also get in touch with Dacor and explain the problem. It's possible your problem might not be uncommon and they may have something in place to deal with it. Below is the link to there home page.
Good luck.

New Dacor Vent does not work


Hi, we have a Dacor RV 30 (I think) and twice I have had the unit go up and down endlessly until I turn the breaker off. The problem was water getting inside the switch. The first time, I got a real Dacor replacement ($80?) the next time, I got the part number off the switch, googled it and got two of them for about $4 each plus shipping.

DACOR DOWNDRAFT RV36B PROBLEM


when just the high and low lights are lit, the unit is in childproof mode. try holding down the high and low buttons at the same time until they go out. then if they do, check the response of the other buttons. If this dosen't help, there are really only 2 other options. Most often we see the control board go bad on these (located behind an access panel in the lower right hand corner of the unit below the counter) or the button pad contacts wear out. If the only button that doesn't respond is the up down button, and all the other buttons work fairly easily once its up..then you probably have a bad button pad. If the thing does all sorts of weird things and seem to have a mind of its own, probably a bad control board. the control boards on these fail so often, they re-designed the board to prevent further failures. The button pad is easier to replace and cheaper, so if you have to guess go with that first. good luck!
