The salesperson recommended a Zephyr ADS100S for over my Jen Air 30" stove. It was installed by the contractor in a new home two weeks ago.
It is so noisy even on low and when on high it is like being in an airport.
What is wrong? Can a specialist examine this unit? It is not useable.
Also, how do I get an owner's manual, installation instructions and a service manual. Trying to understand the problem. Everybody that visits and listens to the fan says turn it off.

Re: so noisy even on low
After reading the reviews on this model, it is supposed to be one of the quietest models on the market. I'm going to say that the fan assembly is loose or it has a bent fan blade. Either way, with this unit being as new as it is, take it back, and exchange it for a new or different one.

Best recommendation is - don't install it. This stove was manufactured originally by Martin Industries. They were a very good company. I did business with them for 10 years. However, they have been out of business for 5 years, now. In addition, that old a stove does not meet the current EPA, NFPA or Home Owners Insurance standards. It's efficiency rating is less than 60%. Although the stove may look new, in the end, it won't be what you expected. It was good in it's time, but now, depending on where you live, it can't be legally installed
One other word of caution. If you do decide to proceed with the installation, check with your Home Owners Insurance carrier, to see if they will cover a loss, as a result of a wood stove. Many won't.
Hi, the ducts are 18" round at the beginning and branch out to smaller sizes for other rooms. 10" for living areas, 8" for bedroom, down to 6" for bathrooms if they have them.If this unit was just installed, I would recommend getting the contractor out and do a balance of the duct work as they should have installed hand dampers to balance out the system, so you will have equal air distribution throughout. I would have went with a 5 ton unit for 2400 SQ.' home, but that's what the contractor recommended. If its only been there a short time, get them back out there as you may have other problems. If its not a new system, it may need to be serviced, outdoor coil washed, you may have a small freon leak, anything could be wrong. This is what I recommend, call out the contractor.

From experience I have found Smeg appliances to be very reliable.
It is difficult to judge reliability of appliances but generally these days NO appliance will last without some form of brake down. They are not made to the same quality as appliances of a few years ago. If you stick to german made appliances (Bosch, Neff, inc Smeg ) then they tend to be built to a higher spec.
First of all, clean your outside coils so that you are assured of good cooling air. The compressors have an overtemp device that is usually internal to protect them against heat. If you have an air compressor use it to blow out the coils good. If the compressor will start, the capacitor is good so it sounds like a cooling problem with the compressor
That is a fairly large difference. It is usually ok to have the inside evap. coil and blower up to 1 ton larger than the outside condenser. That will make the unit slightly more efficient as well as less likely to freeze up on low airflow situations. It is not recommended to install a new condenser on an old evap coil. There has been a lot of changes to the design of the coils in the last little while. For example a 10 year old 2 ton coil may only have 3 cubic feet of volume but a new 2 ton coil may have 4 cubit feet of volume.
There are many factors that may have infulenced the decision on what size condenser to install. Many of which can only be done by visiting the home and doing alot of work, checking the duct sizing bioth supply and return, inspecting the insulation and windows of the home etc. etc. Most of the time that never gets done. You can blame the contractor for not doing a complete check, but at the same time you can blame the customer because many contractors that are that good loose the job to a cheaper bid that did not no any of the research. It is a catch 22 for everyone involved.
There is ALOT more to sizing equipment that many people think, sadly that also includes many HVAC contractors. Way too many people use "rule of thumbs" or flat out "guess".
Sorry for the rant but your queston can only be answered by a good well educated HVAC contractor visiting your home. That type of a contractor is getting hard to find these days in such a price competetive world.
Please cut the nonsence and get a brouchure to me, for JENN-AIR cooktop CCE3401. MY ADDRESS IS 2049 CORLEONE DR., SPARKS, NV 89434. I AM 73 YRS. OLD AND I do not have the time or the patience to chase Jen-Air around all over the internet! Everytime someone says it is on the internet, then go to Customer Care, then manuals, it is never there, and never that easy! Please. We are in a new house and the performance of the Jen-Air CCE3401W has not been that convincing...
