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. Basically I'm just trying not to have to purchase a new stove because this remodel has tapped usJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: No that's all I have

Tyler, I'm trying to get into a GE Gas cooktop, Model

Tyler, I'm trying to get into a GE Gas cooktop, Model JGP975SEK1SS. It has five burners. I can't get it open, but the only thing apparently holding it is one burred Torx screw #10 and maybe the insulated spark electrodes, you know, the white caps? I guess I can drill out the burred Torx screw (I didn't do it. It was that way when I got there.) but where can you get Torx screws? If I get that out, shouldn't I be able to just lift up the top and disconnect the spade connectors (I think) on the bottoms of the electrodes? I'm trying to change a wiring harness.

I purchased a new gas range, and during installation, I have stripped the 3/8" male gas pipe that extends from the bottom of the range. I am now faced with how to safely install this range.It is unclear to me if this single piece can be replaced by installing a new 3/8" pipe to the stove, but connecting anything to this current 3/8" pipe seems impossible. the only way to remove this pipe, would be via vice grips, at this point...which I'll certainly attempt, as the threads are no long salvagable.Every other fix seems unsafe (JB welding a larger 1/2" connector (which I can easily do, but seems rather dangerous).Any other product that would guarantee a seal would be acceptable.I just need advice, before I bit the bullet and spend another $500 on a stove...

This is the second time I have had to seek help on our 2010

This is the second time I have had to seek help on our 2010 BOSCH gas cooktop. It smells very slightly of gas even when in use. It has been serviced once under warranty and I have had the gas co. And plumbers out numerous times to check the lines and attachment points. It is used infrequently but I am basically afraid to use it at all and the smell freaks everyone out. If I don't turn it on for two weeks, there is no smell. Can you help? Last time the guy said the leak was inside the unit so he took it away and brought it or another one back but we still have the problem.

The burners on my 1 year old 30" downdraft cooktop are way

The burners on my 1 year old 30" downdraft cooktop are way too hot. I've used cast iron & stainless pans. At a setting of 3 out of 10, it burns everything. I hate it. I'm thinking of replacing it with a gas cooktop, but I also hate to give up on an essentially new one.

I moved into a home with a Thermador cooktop - SGSX304CB.

I moved into a home with a Thermador cooktop - SGSX304CB. This is the third home we have had with a natural gas cooktop and we find the current home burner flames, though consistent and a blue colour - is at a very low heating level - it takes an unusual long time from our experience to heat up a pan or boil water. I am not sure if this is typical of the burner specs or we have insufficient natural gas pressure resulting from some plugging in the gas system or some other issue.Your guidance is appreciated
