Downdraft Vent System Does Not Operate


Possible Cause What to Do
Circuit Breaker Tripped Check that a circuit breaker has not tripped or a household fuse blown.
Filters not installed correctly Check that the grease filters are properly installed.
Fuse Blown Check the downdraft unit fuse located under the power board.
This downdraft unit is designed with a microswitch behind the center of each grease filter. These microswitches prevent the blower and the unit-raising and lowering mechanism from operating when either of the grease filters is removed. It is very important to make sure that the grease filters are properly and firmly in place. If the unit does not operate after replacing the grease filters, make sure the filters are properly installed and are making firm contact with the microswitches.
