Hi I am Gaztech1, a independent technician, I will assist you with your issue.

Don't forget to rate the 5 star rating AT THE TOP OF PAGE if we are done. this will credit me for assisting you.

The right way to check it is to mesure incoming voltage to variable speed switch. then output side of switch.

If you have no incoming voltage then it may be the downdraft shelve not opening fully or switch that detects open shelve is defective or loose wiring
