Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad design - downdraft vent system We built a new house. All our appliances are GE. We have had nothing but trouble with the downdraft system. We had to have the drive motor replaced before we could even use the system. The unit raises slowly, must push the on/off button 3 times before it raises all the way up. The system raises crooked and is crooked when all the way up. GE has opted to buy back the vent system instead of replacing the system. We live in a rural areal and have had difficulty getting someone to work on GE appliances. My concern is future repairs. I bought all appliances with a extended warranty and GE won't send anyone out to repair the appliances. April 17, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Vent Comes Up Slanted, Sometimes Not Running We had this downdraft vent for less than a year. Within a year, the vent had been coming up slanted (see photo - check the bottom horizontal line of the vent and compare that to the cooktop to see how much it slanted.) It got worse, lately the vent did not come up completely, so the fan wouldn't run. We had to bring it down and up couple times to get it working. A GE serviceman came by and said that he saw many units with this issues for this model. All they could do was to order a kit to clean it up, and it MIGHT fix it. But there was no guarantee.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do NOT purchase I give this item zero stars. I've had it two months and it never comes up straight. GE states it's an installation problem, but their technicians can't fix it. I've had it serviced twice. Both times they claims it's the grease, and both times they replace parts (and grease), but still comes up crooked. Came with David Weekly home. So I didn't have a choice. If you do, don't choose this piece of junk! Go with another brand! David Weekly is STILL trying to make this right for us. March 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great vent that hides away when not in use Great vent for our island cooktop, vent hides away when not in use November 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We love it! We have our down draft paired up with the GE induction cook top on our island. At first I thought it was a little over the top however it works great. I can tell you I use my vent in the last 3 weeks more then I've every used any type of vent. It helps with the oder and it's fairly quiet. We put our control pad on the face of the cabinet so we didn't have to cut another hole in our granite. August 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Match Replaced an older integrated venting system. This unit fits perfectly with my new cooktop. I purchased the smaller unit and it provides a great downdraft even at lowest setting. Installation was not as simple but I suspect the older unit wasn't installed perfectly. Overall I am very pleased with this product. July 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Easy install, went for this one over the stainless steel finish which wasn't worth the extra $$ and would stand out on dark counter tops. I think downdrafts are overpriced in general but home depot had the best price, quick shipping and great service. April 13, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Love it! Super easy to use!  sometimes our up and down button gets a little stuck and takes a press or two to get it going, but the button has always been slightly broken, I just didn't take the time to have GE send me a replacement. Hides very nicely under the counter and works great with the GE 36" induction cooktop. Sometimes one of the sides scrapes when retracting up or down, but I have to believe this was more of an installation issue.Very powerful fan! Dimensions to install this and the cooktop were confusing online, but have the appliance in hand when they are installing the countertop and make any field cuts where necessary. My kitchen is so high tech! but doesn't look it! August 30, 2013
