I have a thermador 14-33-754 or that's the only numbers I

I have a thermador 14-33-754 or that's the only numbers I can find. It has a down draft vent system attached to it and we are moving it across the room with new cabinet be installed. Since then we have learned that the new location is directly above the main heating unit in the crawl space and has a floor joist dead center in the new location as well. It has a 8" connection that no way will work and I was wondering if we could reduce it to 6" then to 4" just to make the turn below the floor so we can clear the main unit located in the crawl space? Do we have to hook up this exhaust at all? There is a window about 9' across the room if that help? We are in a major bind as we can't afford a new electric range in which the HVAC guy said was our only solution. Please helpJA: Are you an HVAC professional?Customer: No im the homeownerJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes as it seems the company I called said it couldn't be done and I have some friends who have worked in hvac that could help me.

I have a whirlpool gold gi5svaxvl01 and the front panel

Hi Pearl. I have a whirlpool gold gi5svaxvl01 and the front panel lights are all out and the fridge does not start. If I push in the ice dispenser, it does beep and displays all 888 888. I replaced the starter relay and capacitor but that did not help. I was advised that the front board wasprobably the issue. Today the new board and input panel arrived, butthey behave exactly as the old parts and the fridge still does not run. Any thoughts/ideas? Thank you!JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: Around 6 years old. Model# *****JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes. Already swapped out the starter relay, capacitor, and front control panel / board.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: The refrigerator will not run. The icemaker door flips when plugged in as normal, but the compressor does not kick on. I cannot see any evidence of burnt circuits in the main control board behind the refrigerator. Sears chat thought it may be a wiring issue.
