Downdraft blower quit working

Our Kenmore downdraft blower is 3 years old. It quit working after 1-1/2 years and Sears replaced the motor at a cost of $157.00. It has been 9 months since the replacement and it is not working again. It's plugged in and we've checked the circuit breaker. You don't hear anything when pushing the button to make the telescoping part rise. The warranty was only for 90 days and the blower was used once during that time. Now I'm looking at another $157.00. Help.

SOURCE: pivot arm in telescoping downdraft system sticks when closing

i have seen these units be built in too tight to the conutertop cause the raising portion of your vent to bind on the way down causing it to bounce, hop, thump,and several other noises.
take the cook top out of the countertop and then try the vent and see if it does move smoothe after that.
when they put the top in it pushes against the vent and thats where it is binding.
you might have to cut the counter out more to allow proper clearance.

I have a GE downdraft vent, model #JVB94SH1SS. A couple months ago I pushed the button to put it down and it went down and up and down and up and down and up and...well you get it. I had to unplug it to...


I had the same problem. It is the switch. Hang on because that little $3 swtich is about $60 from a parts house. Sears wanted $114. If you take the switch out or disconnect the switch at the board and jumper the two leads, (12v), it should work fine. That will tell you whether it is the switch. I did it with a small screwdriver. Careful, even though it is 12v it will get yor attention. I have all GE appliances and they are all junk.

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.
