I need to replace 1989 Thermador electric cooktop with

Customer Question
I need to replace...

I need to replace 1989 Thermador white electric cooktop with retractible downdraft installed on center island. Is something like this still being manufactured> It is a 36"unit. Is downdraft now being incorporated in unit or installed separately. With tech improvements of today, is a downdraft still considered necessary.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the unit's filters?

Thermostat has not been checked. Two of the 4 burners not heating properly, very slow to reach temp or else so hot it ends up burning rather than cooking. I do not think filters have been changed. It is a summer home which has been occupied full time for past 6 - 7 years. I do not even know if there is a thermostat?

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

No.

Does Thermadore have a 36" elecric cooktop with or without retractible downdraft? Since this unit is 28 yrs.old it might be impossible to resurrect this unit.

It has been over 15 minutes of waiting time. I will need to log out within the next 10 minutes.
