Rick32k:
KIRD861HSS-1 I think that the gear motor on this downdraft vent is bad. But Im not sure. You guys have any suggestions

Bailey:
Do you get 120v at blue and white when the button is pushed?

Rick32k:
I didn't check that but I think the blue and white were disconnected. And then when I connected them still nothing.

Rick32k:
It's always the most elegant and simple solution. I went and scoped it out real good. Turns out the grease filter wasn't making a good contact with one of the switches and both switches had to be closed for the push button to work. So I shined up one of the switch housings with a piece of card board and its working just fine. I'm still thinking about what to charge him. Plus I have to lingo it up so It sounds like I did something technical. Not just wedge cardboard under the switch housing so it wouldn't move.

Bailey:
Sounds to me like you "recalibrated the limit switch"
