Question about Jenn-Air JED8230 Electric Cooktop
I have an island with the downdraft already installed going down through floor and out side of house. Just bought a new Jenn air downdraft and vent is facing back. How can it be turned so it's facing down.
How do you get the inside area of the vent clean from the grease and oils where the filter is?? I have a rectangular box style downdraft that the vent goes into the floor, I pulled the filter, but the box is to slender to get an arm into to scrub the grease....... does the bottom come off, or is it a sealed unit? How do you get all the brease from the bottom if you cannot reach it?

I called jenn-air about this problem and they stated that all their new cooktops have a rotatable vent opening--that if you read the instructions it can be rotated 360 degrees. I am not installing it myself, but the insurance company sent a guy who told me that i couldnt install this cooktop unless i got one that faced toward the floor. I guess he didnt have much experience in installing these new jenn-air cooktops.

Just get a dryer vent tube the flexible ones and some aluminum tape and that will do it, I had the same problem and thats how the gas company told me to do it and it works excelent.
