I need to purchase a suite of kitchen appliances. I found a good deal on frigidaire professional series appliances and was about to purchase them until I realized that the ranges didn't have a vent. I am replacing 2 jenn air units in an island, each unit has built in ventilation. I do not want an overhead hood. So, it seems like my options are to replace the units with un ts containing in builtin vent or to install a separate vent. The Frigi appliances I am looking at dont have a built in vent, so if I want to stick with Frigi, i need to add a vent. I notice some telescoping vents but am concerned that they would suck the gas flame. Also, the back of the ranges are in the middle of the island, so I am not sure about the look and function.So, I am looking for some guidance here. I would like to purchase the Frigi pro suite bc it is a good deal, but the value may be moot if I have to buy a separate vent. The 2 ranges are going under ceramic counter circa 1990. They are separated by a narrow set of drawers that store cooking utensils. The current units are different, as one has burners and one has grates. Another option would be to but one range without a vent and another range or cooktop that does have a vent. I would want them to be the same manufacture for appearance sake, but am flexible if necessary.I don't have great pictures with me but can upload some later. I have some that will give u a general idea. I am looking for recommendations on the best overall solution.Thanks-Maryann

I have a Jenn Air downdraft range the switch for the light/downdraft

I have a Jenn Air downdraft range the switch for the light/downdraft fan is not operational. I would like to straight wire it until a new switch can be located. It has 2 brown wires (connected together), 2 blue wires (connected together), 1 black wire (hot) and 1 white wire (neutral). I had it wired one time so the light was on all the time and the blower would come on when the element was energized on the grill, unfortunely I unwired it to make better connections and didn't make a diagram. Would really appreciate help.

I have a downdraft range model JES9900BAS. One element does not work, however the indicator light for that element does come on. Would it be safe to assume that the element needs to be replaced? Is there anything else in there that would cause this?

Jenn-Air model S125, turned on a second burner yesterday (first burner had been on for several hours cooking a roast). Got heat for several minutes then heard a loud pop. Turned off burner but lost all heat on all burners and oven. Lights and fan still operate. Range is over 30 years old but had to replace my refrigerator last week. Any advice?
