Question about Kenmore 52153 Stainless Steel Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Vent hood not exhausting properly

Kenmore vent hood has exhaust on both sides, has vertical vent into attic, and is mounted on wall above stove. The exhaust is weak as it does not pull smoke/steam upwards well. I removed the filters on boths sides. With the exhaust fan turned on - Towards the front air is blowing out and towards the back there a suction up/out; however, the front output is much stronger than the back input. If I did not know better, I would think the exhaust fan was rotating backwards. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    I kinda have the same problem...some air is blown out of the kitchen but some do come back from the front panel causing the smell to escape from exhaust fan and into the house...the handyman at my place told me there is about $60 part that is called "deflector" that needs to be installed...but I don't find anything called that.

Does a Maytag gas stove model # CRG9700BAL have to be vented. Im replaceing a stove that quit working with this one and it has no vent, but my old one did.


Old gas stoves were designed to be vented out. the newer stoves vent out the top at the back of the top panel. You may still need to have some kind of vent in the kitchen either a ceiling vent van or a range hood. At the very least a window in the kitchen. You may want to check with the local building codes about how to vent the stove and the requirements.

I do not know the unit but check if the oven vent is near the front. It is also possible the door seal on the top of the door is failing.

How can a Jenn-Air down draft stove be vented out the roof ?


Yes , its much more labor intense but it can be done by venting it up through the wall then through the attic over to the side vents. Make sure to get flexable duct to pull up through the wall.

Stopping cold air


Depending on where it is vented you probably wont be able to stop the air. Take the grill out and see if there is a door flap that is supposed to close when the fan is off. If not your out of luck.

Oven vent


I talked to Sears Customer Service (who seemed to have heard of the problem) and they gave me Kenmore's number. The

There is no recall for the oven, but the person on the phone told me there was a design enhancement / adjustment that would stop the condensation on the back panel. The person I spoke with at Kenmore said there was a related product bulletin SF22-727 (for model 79095412102), but that that was only available to the technicians.

However, once the back panel is melted/yellow -then I think it needs replacing and I think that part costs about 100 in addition to the design adjustment.

I decided it was cheaper to buy a newer (used) oven than have the vent fixed/panel replaced.
