Jenn-air downdraft fan not working

I just installed a new cooktop. Th burners work fine. The fan does not come on when I use the switch. I checked the power to the unit to see if there was a wire for the fan that I missed. I also checked the wire connection to the fan. All of those seem fine. Tom

We had the same issue....It turned out that the black (hot) wire wasn't tight enough...simple fix.
Check to see if the fan is getting juice with a circuit tester and if it's not...then that's your problem. Good luck -

Whirlpool SC8720EDB cooktop stove independent vent switch is not starting downdraft exhaust fan, but the exhaust fan works fine when left side burners were turned on

Can you get to the switch terminals and try jumping them out with a piece of insulated wire? That would tell you if the switch is defective (my suspicion). Please be careful not to touch any live terminals - only the wire insulation you use for the jumper.

Generally there is a plug for the fan motor under the range, the panel where the drawer would be should lift off, you will then see the power to the fan motor. The fan motor is only 120Volts not 220V

I used my grill for the first time, & the downdraft didn't work we'll, the house filled with smoke & eventually the downdraft shut off and I had to finish cooking in a pan. My Jenn-Air is...

The downdraft is electric so there must be something malfunctioning with it. It is a high volume downdraft fan that is to be vented to the outside. Could it be that something has clogged the vent hole up, not allowing the fan to evacuate the smoke?

While I am not a big fan of Jenn-Air, their fans are usually high quality if they are installed correctly, with the proper vent lines.

Downdraft vent on jenn air cooktop

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?
