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?

We purchased a home in October, 2014. There is a KitchenAid

We purchased a home in October, 2014. There is a KitchenAid wall oven installed,Mod KEBC107KSS03, Serial #XR4008444. The first time I used the self-cleaning feature, it cleaned nicely, but would no longer heat. A handy-man we were using at the time pulled the oven and replaced/repaired the electronic control unit behind the oven. He suggested it got too hot in the cleaning cycle and was unable to vent sufficiently, so it burned up the control unit. He drilled holes behind the oven and cautioned me to always open the drawer beneath the oven for ventilation while cleaning. It then proceeded to break the next time I cleaned it, despite leaving the drawer open. I've used American Home Shield 3 more times for repair, even though the drawer was open. This morning I was visited by a tech with Capitol Appliance, who knew the history, and refused to fix the problem one more time, even though I was charged the $75 again. This makes at least 4, probably 5 times I've had to pay someone to repair the oven. I saw after an on-line question that this has happened to numerous other KitchenAid ovens.What is the solution? I'm left with a non-working oven, that apparently has a design flaw that KitchenAid must know about by now. PLEASE FIX THE PROBLEM!! Either get my oven fixed for good, or install another model that will work after cleaning.

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?
