Customer Question
The filter cover on...

The filter cover on my Dacor downdraft vent fell down into the area in front of the part that goes up and down. How do I get to it inside the box?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

It just happened an hour ago. I tried fishing for it with string and a hook but cannot get it.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I hope to.

So this is quite a major problem. It will not be easy to correct this issue I'm afraid. You'll need to open the cabinets up below the cooktop and disconnect the venting to the downdraft. Then remove all the screws going into the front panel of the downdraft. Remove the front panel and then you can work on pulling the front grill out. It will likely be fairly scratched up. I've seen this happen a lot unfortunately, and that front cover tends to get damaged when it doesn't get clipped into place properly and it falls off.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.
