Bad product, with worse customer service

By Ravi

from Centreville, VA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Retractable Downdraft System:

The product never worked since, installation. After two visits the authorized repair company came back to me and said the critical part required to fix the problem is back ordered, without an ETA. Kitchen Aid offered only to expedite the part request. I have since provided this information, and can do nothing but wait until it is fixed. KitchenAid says that I am eligible only repair and not replacement, after initial 30 days after purchase. The unit was installed 1 month after the purchase to synchronize with the counter installation. It failed on the day of the installation, and it has been 2 months since then. For something which has not worked from day 1, and the customer is waiting for 2+ months, I am not sure this is an acceptable response. This is not an acceptable level of customer service. I had to wait for 3 times for more than 30 minutes to reach an agent.

Downdraft fan

By Philliam

from wa

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Retractable Downdraft System:

We bought this fan over a year ago, but are just now installing it. (Kitchen remodels can take a long, LONG time) It's working beautifully, but as I said, we just installed it. I'll get back if it screws up - but I'm not expecting it to, as all of our other Kitchenaid products have worked VERY nicely. I have to add that some of the features you ask about below I really can't address at this time. But one thing I do know: it's SO much quieter than our friends' fan. I LOVE that!

Very compact and works efficiently. A bit noisy while operating on high speed. Otherwise works well and very easy to clean the filters.

Stylish vent

By Scott

from Raleigh, NC

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Retractable Downdraft System:

This is a sleek, stylish product with a very strong fan. Installation was challenging (it took us three tries to find a handyman who could do it), but once in place it looks great.

A lot of noise but very little venting

By Frustrated consumer

from Sammamish, Wa

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Retractable Downdraft System:

I bought this downdraft system to avoid installing an overhead hood in my remodeled kitchen. I wanted to maintain the clear sight line from the family room to the kitchen. It is supposed to work with the KitchenAid 30" 4 burner commercial style gas range top that I also installed. The retractable feature works well but the venting is terrible. The fan makes a lot of noise giving the impression that it's sucking large amounts of air. Unfortunately, it won't even pull the steam coming from a pot of boiling water! What a disappointment.

KitchenAid, Do you have any suggestions??

Works OK but not so stylish

By Malgem

from Gig Harbor WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Retractable Downdraft System:

We have our stove in an island so we had to get a downdraft. This one is pretty and it works great, but I thinks it goes way too high when you turn it on, what makes it look a little weird, because usually I have people seating on the other side of the island, and when I cook this thing goes really high so I can hardly see my guests on the other side. I works great and that´s what matters, but I wish it wasn´t that high.
Also, I though the sound level was going to be better since it is a new appliance with better technology, I guessed, but the noise is just as bad as the old one we had.

Not up to expectations

By Very unhappy

from Tustin CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Retractable Downdraft System:

We have all kitchen aid appliances in our kitchen. We were very surprised at the quality of the downdraft as it did not come with a power cord (you had to purchase and wire it in yourself) and several parts were not in alignment. One of the above counter stainless steel end caps was cut crooked so it overlaps on the counter side and underlaps on the cooktop side
This is Kitchen Aid pricing at discount store quality

Terrible Quality

By Cooker

from Vancouver, BC

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Retractable Downdraft System:

Dreadful quality. Already had to replace. Quit working within days. Very noisy. Bad design. Not worth the price at all. We bought five new Kitchen Aid appliances and three of five have been lemons. Very disappointed.
