Question about Thermador UCV36A 36" Universal Cook 'n' Vent Downdraft Kitchen Hood

Open Question

Thermador UCV36 - motor won't raise fan

My down draft fan broke last night. My wife pushed the button to stop the fan, upon which it started to retract itself without stopping the fan (correct operation would have been to stop the fan and stay put). I had to switch off the circuit breaker to stop it. After turning the power back on and pushing the button to raise the panel, the motor used to raise it started, but the panel stayed put. After a few tries, I grabbed the panel and managed to simply pull it up (I've never tried that before so I don't know if that is normal) all while the motor (but not the fan) was running. I think the mecanism to raise the panel is two jack screws, but I don't know for sure. Could anyone give me a few trouble shoot hints. Could something in the rasing mecanism have been dislocated, disconnected or similar?

    I have the same problem - the vent is almost fully raised, and the motor turns on, stalled, when the button is pushed, and the fan is not on. It will not go down. Or up.

    My problem is with the 30" Cook 'n' Vent. The unit will raise and operate in all speeds, but when I push the button to retract the unit, it will not retract all the way. It acts like it is stuck about half way down. I am able to push the unit down, but it is very tight, like it is off the track or something.

You have to get the tension off of the hinge and it will drop right in. The spring loaded arm on the door needs to be drawn back until you can (depending on the style) either lock the u-arm into the notch on the other side of the hinge, or put a small bolt through the aligning holes in the side of the hinge. Once you get the arm straightened out a bit and relieve the spring pressure, you should be able to sit it right in there. Be careful though, that spring is strong.

SOURCE: Cook 'n Vent Downdraft Up/Down Mechanism Replacing

just the switch should be replacable. My vent has a screw at each end (philips flatheads - accessible only when vent is up) just under the top cap. Removing the screws and cap should give you access to the switch. Just make sure you cut your breaker off first.

SOURCE: Thermador cook top with down draft ventalation

I would think you can. Most of the cooktops are 240v and the vents are 120v, so the vent may be feeding off of one of the cooktop's hot wires. My vent is fed from it's own receptacle but is harnessed along with the cooktop's 240v.

Thermador downdraft does not stop going up and going down automatically

I had a similar issue with the Thermador CVS30R hood continually going up and down, and also issues with the fan starting.
The issue was found to be a loose control arm off the motor. The arm itself moved outward on the motor shaft which resulted in it missing the switches that control the hood up/down and fan start.
This was a somewhat simple fix. Make sure the hood is in the down position. Unplug the unit from power(important!). Unscrew the screw that connects the drive arm to the drive link. Unscrew the motor/control cover, then unscrew the 4 screws holding the complete motor/control unit on (2 Phillips-head screw on each end of the assembly). Pull the complete motor/control assembly out, be careful of wiring. Once out, push the drive arm on firmly onto the motor assembly and tighten the screw. When doing so make sure the 2 micro switch arms are not caught and are free to switch.
When placing the unit back in, ensure all wiring is clear from being caught and ground is reconnected. Put it all back together and done!
