only worked for about one month out of three months of ownership

Comments about KitchenAid Kitchen-Aid 36" Downdraft:

The downdraft came with a broken button. It took a month to get replaced and is now broken again. I've used it about 3 times. I can say from usage that the fan is much better than my previous GE version. I like the way it comes up and retracts. But the use of cheaper plastic on the button make it break more easily. It seems to get stuck in the permanent on position. Seems to be a design flaw.

aweful

Comments about KitchenAid Kitchen-Aid 36" Downdraft:

The first one never worked, button was broken, then motor would not stop. The report company worked on it for 7 visits over 2 months. Finally I replaced it with new unit. The 2nd broke after 10 months. It pops up, sits there a few seconds, makes a loud click and then falls down.

Works great!

Comments about KitchenAid Kitchen-Aid 36" Downdraft:

I've only had my downdraft for a couple of months, but so far so good. Really like the variable settings. On low I can hardly hear it. Also, I LOVE the smaller form factor of the under-counter blower (island configuration). It takes up half the space of my old Thermador! Another bonus is that the price includes the blower!

Poor Quality

By Odonned

Comments about KitchenAid Kitchen-Aid 36" Downdraft:

Button that makes the unit raise and lower broke on day one. Button is cheap and made out of plastic. Button was fixed via warranty. The top of the unit does not fit firmly and it is flimsy. Don't buy this product if you are looking for quality.

      Comments about KitchenAid Kitchen-Aid 36" Downdraft:

      I have had this product for less than a year and already it has been replaced completely under the warranty. The second one still 'sticks' when in elevation mode and doesn't come up all the way - this will probably have to be replaced too. It's noisy when the extractor fans are turned on and it doesn't remove cooking odors, steam, fumes etc. which is the whole point of having it - our venting system is excellent - there are no blockages - so why doesn't the downdraft suck away fumes etc? I would NOT recommend this product to anyone - along with my new Kitchenaid 48" built-in, side-by-side refrigerator - the ice maker has been replaced once already and now the new one has ceased to work - we're waiting for a new 'shoot' - meanwhile - no ice also less than a year old!

          Feel like it might need improvement with the air suction capacity
