Looks great but....

By Jammies

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Retractable Downdraft System:

So we purchased this brand new and have used it, not everyday, but for the past 4-6 weeks. We're trying to be good by keeping the filters clean. The last time we took them out, the downdraft descended on its own. No where in the manual does it tell you how to troubleshoot an occurence like that. We called kitchenaid and they sent out a technician. He tried all he could by checking the breaker, and unplugged the unit to get it ro reset. Nothing happened. He in turn ordered a bunch of parts in anticipation of replacing. This was on Saturday, we're waiting for the parts to come in. Like I stated earlier, this was brand new. This shouldn't be happening already. If anything, I should be thrilled it's still under warranty. I hope whatever the technician does, we will never have issues again for at least 10 years!

Nice Looking unit

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Retractable Downdraft System:

The draft is very weak for such a large unit. Everything operates well it just does not remove steam or smoke while cooking

Looks cool but not reliable

By Geronimo

from St. Louis

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Retractable Downdraft System:

Mostly works but had an issue or two, the first fixed under warranty in the first year, the second I recently heard from the repair company the these things are junk. It's a 1.5-2 hour job to remove it and replace the switch that frequently fails. In short, the wow factor is there but the quality/reliability is not.

Awful

By Lynn

from Mt. Airy, MD

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Retractable Downdraft System:

Worked just OK for the most part on high which is very, very loud. Always had to help "lift" the unit to the upright position since day one. Was cleaning it today and pulled the filters when the unit closed on me and I cannot get it to raise back up. Of course it's out of warranty. Would NOT recommend to others.

Good Purchase

By Elk Watcher

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Retractable Downdraft System:

A definite improvement over my 26 year old builder-installed KitchenAid downdraft system. Sleek looks and MUCH quieter. Not sure any of these downdraft systems are a true replacement for actual vent hoods, but given my kitchen configuration it's all I can have.

36' Retractable Downdraft System 600 CFM

By RC

from Denver CO

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Retractable Downdraft System:

When we opted for an electric cooktop in our new house, we were not aware it came with the downdraft system. But we're very happy with the exhaust system - vents down and out so there are no overhead intrusions. Three speeds, quickly raises and lowers. Relatively quiet - same as an overhead system. We'd do it again!

Less than thrilled

By Dpeters

from Grand Junction, CO

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Retractable Downdraft System:

You must always push the button twice to make the unit rise and sometimes three times to make it retract. Not sure why this is. Also the fan is very noisy and doesn't move enough air if you are cooking on the "burners" that are not right beneath the exhaust.

Lousy Brand

By Football Mom

from South Kingstown, RI

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Retractable Downdraft System:

I just remodeled my kitchen 18 months ago and purchased ALL kitchenAid applicances stainless Steel. The fridge is rusting and seal is breaking ($2500 purchase) which KitchenAid refuses to do anything about. The downdraft is rusting which is causing it to get stuck and not automatically raise and lower. It started rusting within 9 months of use. This brand is junk and over priced. KitchenAid does not support their products. I will never recommend or purchase this brand.
