Customer Question
I am trying to...

I am trying to install a kitchenaide downdraft vent in an island for a range. It is model kxd4630yss. Issue is the manual says it reverses but only the fan reverses and not the motor that drives the up/down of vent.

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

Just today. Reversed the fan section as directed. now left with motor drive and gears

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

No, I have a contractor doing the installation. Embarrassed to say I am an engineer and actually paired these 2 kitchenaide products together.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The quartz countertop is already cut for slide-in range and downdraft vent. the kitchenaide range is ksdb900ess
