Question about GE Kitchen Ranges

6 Answers

I have a black GE Telescopic Downdraft Hood JVB37H1BB. I would like to replace the black trim with stainless steel to match the new cooktop just installed. I don't think stainless steel is available so I would like to know how to remove the black trim and switch so I can strip off the black paint. It appears to be Aluminum underneath which will look much better than black. THANKS in advance for any help you can provide... Dave

    I'm not worried about a warranty as the unit is 4 years old! There's is no safety issue with removing the paint! I need a repair manual or instructions on HOW to remove the trim plate and switch assembly. Item is #7 in diagram.

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 14, 2011

    Item 7 was cut off for some reason. I'll try again

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 15, 2011

    So far I've got ZERO help! Please help or refund my money.

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 15, 2011

    You have provided some useful information but I was not notified! Found solution #2 after I complained of zero help.



    You didn't explain how to remove the slider, so I will attempt to figure it out myself.

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 15, 2011

    I am a retired technician and still cannot figure out how to remove the trim plate! Please provide detailed information on the trim removal process.

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 15, 2011

    Still no luck! You got any pictures showing how to do it? Repair Manual?

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 17, 2011

    Still no luck with removing the trim plate. I used considerable force and it won't budge! Please send me a PDF of the repair manual and I'm sure I will be able to remove the trim.

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 24, 2011

    Still no useful response! I asked for a repair manual so I can figure it out myself but no response!

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 24, 2011

    Didn't get email for Sol #3 but it doesn't help as I already found exploded diagrams and owners manual online. What I cannot find is a Repair Manual or procedure to remove the trim. Pleeeze help!

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 24, 2011

    If I can figure out HOW to remove the trim I can easily remove the paint and since its aluminum I will have the color I want without painting it silver to look like the stainless steel cooktop.

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 25, 2011

    So far no one has been able to help with my problem! Do you have anyone who can help?

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 25, 2011

    If a GE Repairman came to my house he would know how or find out how to remove the trim as this is required for servicing the switch or circuit board. What I'm asking for should be readily available at GE. Can you get this information from GE?

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 25, 2011

    YES it's item #7 as stated in MY comments in multiple places.The diagram you sent is also in MY comments. Again what I need is the REPAIR Manual or exact instructions how to remove the trim. I'm a techie so with decent instructions I will be fine.

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 27, 2011

    The trim and switch are together on the 30" model. I finally figured it out myself! They used double sided sticky tape to hold the switch and trim in place. Almost impossible to remove without damaging the trim, but I did it.

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 27, 2011

    You reference page 16 but its for 36" hood only. I have a 30" I finally figured it out myself. The Trim and switch are attached with double sided sticky tape. I was able to remove the trim without damaging it too badly. Very poor design as more than likely if you remove the trim you will have to replace it for about $70 bucks! Well at least now you can help others who may have this problem now that I gave you the fix. Please refund my money.

    Thanks

    Dave Goodrich

  • Dave Goodrich Mar 27, 2011

    I replied twice but apparently in the wrong reply place! My 3rd attempt is below.



    You ref page 16 but that's for mounting a switch if you have the 36" model. I have a 30" model which has the switch mounted in the trim item #7.



    I finally figured it out myself! The trim and switch are attached with double sided sticky tape. You must remove a panel #11 inside the vent area to gain access to the switch connector and disconnect it first. Then you pry up the trim very carefully so as not to bend the trim. The switch can be pryed off as well if needed. You can add my fix to your database but please refund my money as I fixed it myself.



    Thanks

    Rick Ead Mar 25, 2011

    page 16 in your manual discusses how to remove the switch that you were talking about http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_ma... and also shows a small diagram inlcudeing raiseing the trim piece we unfortunately are not there at your location so we arent able to see the unit as a whole the service manual does not tell you exact step by step instructions on how to disassemble the unit best thing to do would be to drop the unit down and visually inspect which screws have to be removed to access that trim piece that your trying to get to there is no easy it is just writen area and without me being there personally i can not see if you choose to you can take a picture of the unit and send it to my email and then i would be able to tell you how to take the unit apart if this is acceptable please message me back that this is what you would like to do Thanks Rick

  • Rick Ead
    Rick Ead Mar 26, 2011

Hi Dave. you have a few choices on how to proceed with this. one way will be to tape this trim off, put a good drop cloth underneath it and then strip it off in place. Finally, sand it lightly with a 600 garnet paper, and then spray paint it stainless.

Another method would be to go to a sheet metal shop nearby and have them fabricate a piece of stainless trim for you, predrilled which you can simply add over the existing trim with some stainless steel screws. -this would be my choice.
Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Hello dave, this might not be the exact advice you are requesting but simply i would say there are other ways you can turn the trim to silver apart from how you are planning to go about it. Simply put there is no way you can take off the black paint completely even if you get the trim removed as you will only end up opening up the unit and disfigure the beauty of the unit.
Instead just get a professional painter and they could cover the other segments except the trim of the hood and do some light painting to give you the silver you want. Although you could try doing it yourself all you have to do is get some plain paper and masking tape and cover the part you dont want painted get a can of silver spray and spray lightly till the trim becomes silver to your satisfaction.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

    Sorry but i really dont know how to remove the trim. Although i could try to research on it a bit but i still think the best way out will be to just get the paint thing done to avoid damaging the unit because mostlikelt when you remove the trim it does not fit back exactly the way it was initially.

above is a copy of your owners manual, again this may help.. can't hurt anyway to have a copy?
To strip the coating off, any commercial grade paint stripper should be OK, make sure that you wash the surface thoroughly, to remove any trace of the stripper.
If cost isn't too much of an issue, there is no reason why one couldn't remove the "Trim", and go to a stainless steel sheet metal workshop, and ask them to make a "Copy" the cost wouldn't be too great and the results would be well worth it.

The trim plate or trim piece is held by part number 38 the slider.The trim plate is just fitted from one side,the other side is just stuck hard,you can say like welded.But its easy to remove,just loosen it from one side and give bit **** from other side and it will be loose.In the inner side of trim plate there are few clips that held it tight.But this clips are very delicate,if this clips are not there,then also trim will fit properly.--------- You will just have to slide the trim plate from part number 39 and it will be loose. See fig for slider, part number 39:--- I have a black GE - helpmech_97.jpg see fig for trim plate:-- -------------- The switch is just held by screws and jumper wire,plug in connectors.This are just pull out connecting wires.And easy to re fit.----------- Check out keep updated.Thanks/.Helpmech.

    On the one side of trim plate there is a hole.And on other side its plane.Loosen the trim plate from where there is hole.Then take a thin screw driver or knife and insert under the trim plate and push it towards up and then move it to the outer side .That will push it out from the slider and then push it slowly slowly towards the outer side,till it completely comes out.--------- Try it keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

Hi


Since the change you are asking for is not suggested according to the manual of the product, still if you want to change it will break the warranty as well as the safety.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

JVB37H1BB downdraft ventilation system stuck


Folks, I have experienced the same problem several times - in all of my cases the problem was solved by simply opening the back panel and taking out the motor assembly and re-aligning it. Check out this URL for a blow up of what's inside and parts list - http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5130126

The problem is that the arm tends to slip out and therefore won't raise or lower the hood anymore. Be careful when aligning it can be a little tricky - carefully observe the how the motor works outside of the housing via the switch and you will get the idea.

GE Profile Telescoping Downdraft system gets stuck.


try to remove your cooktop and see if the vent unit is in your countertop too tightly. by removing the cooktop it will give the vent more space. if it works that way, then you might have to make more space for both to fit properly. i have seen this happen before and its probably what is causing it to bind and then drop suddenly. i hope you dont have a marble, slate or rock type countertop as they are very hard to trim just a little off to get everything to fit.

Order in black w/matte finish grates & downdraft cover


No. If it is really important order the grates and downdraft cover as replacement parts. This will be expensive probably around $200 - $300.
