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 Kenmore Model(###) ###-####refrigerator (top freezer). I removed the ice maker leaving 2 holes on the inside wall of the freezer (1 where the wires came through and 1 where the water line came through). Is it o.k. to plug these holes or are they needed for ventilation?

I would like to install a Trumatic E2400 next to a Girard

Hi,I would like to install a Trumatic E2400 next to a Girard GSWH-M1 "Demand endless water heater". If I look at the installation instructions on page 7 paragraph 9 on the side of "Choice of location", it says that the wall cowl has to be 500mm away from any other ventilation apertures. The most I can get is 300mm. The wall cowl can be positioned at the same high as the outlet of the hot water system.Is this OK?

I have a maytag model DG612 gas dryer. On auto dry, the dial will not advance, so it never turns off. It does turn off when set to timed dry (like, 30 or 60 minutes). I've replaced the timer switch, and one of the thermostats. Any idea what else could be wrong or causing this problem?
