  • 283003 is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading After searching the web for some time, I ran across this downdraft. It seamed to be a little cheaper than the others I came across. After receiving it I found out why. It has no blower motor. In the options it ask you to add motor but I assumed that was a upgrade motor. The blower motor cost as much as the downdraft.

    When I press the button to move the hood up, it goes up but will not stay up and then returns to the down position again. What causes this.
