Dacor Downdraft Vent System RV36S not responding

Yesterday, 10:59 AM

An ancillary repair ..you know the type.."while you are here, can you take a look at..."  This time is was for a Dacor downdraft vent system  RV36S 

 

Anyhow, never worked on one of these rising vent systems before but I decided to dive in while I was there.  Pressing the button on the top to raise lower etc has no effect, no noise, no humming...just dead.

 

I confirmed power is getting to the unit. After removing the small  control box cover , I could see the main control board,  part no. 700991 appears to have burn marks.

 

Now having looked at the board on the web, I see what appears to be a replaceable glass fuse.  I did not see it while there as that part of the board was obscured. 

 

1) Is there a way to determine if the failure is  the control board or the switch

 

2) would a blown fuse at the board cause the unit to be dead, and if so you guys think I need to make another exploratory visit  just to test it . If I have to go back to make a determination between board and switch then this question is irrelevant

 

3) I did not see how the front plenum was attached. I was able to remove the panel to access the motor but the plenum needs to be removed, i guess, to better access the main board and switch.

 

4) I read a previous thread where the complaint was the vent was rising and lowering  constantly and the remedy (i guess it solved the problem as the ungrateful grasshopper did not provide a follow up response) was provided by  a bulletin regarding replacing the drive motor  limit/switch combination.  see http://appliantology...36*#entry175374. Could this also be applicable to my situation?  

 

Thanks!

Frigidaire Tonight (ie Phil Collins as an Appliantologist)

Well Ive spared you guys from one of my songs long enough... It's been too quiet here lately so I figured I might as well bring out the ol' drum set...



FRIGIDAIRE TONIGHT (ie Phil Collins as an appliantologist singing a cautionary tale about an unprepared tech)

(click video then scroll down to the lyrics)





Got a call to fix a Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord
Should have prepared for this moment at Samurai's site, oh Lord
Here I come to fix your Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord , oh Lord


Well you told me your fresh food was freezing, asked if I would lend a hand
I've seen your face before my friend, but I don't know if you know who I am
So when I get there and I saw what it did, I saw it with my own two eyes
So you better wipe off that grin 'cause I don't think I'll win
For this manual is a pack of lies.

Got a call to fix a Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord
Well I've been dreading for this moment with all my might, oh Lord
But I come to fix your Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord
Well I've been dreading for this moment with all my might, oh Lord, oh Lord

I must remember, I must remember to test lest I will forget
Check first the damper, the ADC, the fridge thermostat
Still don't know the reason why the fan won't silence up,
it's trying to fool me
Well the answer won't show, and the frost still grows
It's the strangest damn thing to me

Got a call to fix a Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord
Should've prepared for this moment at Samurai's site, oh Lord
Here I come to fix your Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord
I've been dreading for this moment with all my might, oh Lord, oh Lord

Still I come to fix Your Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord
Should have prepared for this moment at Samurai's site, oh Lord, oh Lord

Got a call to fix a Frigidaaiirree! Got a call to fix a Frigidaaiiiirrre!
Well I've been dreading this moment with all my might ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight iiiiiiight!

Should have prepared for this moment at Samurai's site.... at his siiiiiiiiiite...
