Without warning, my Dacor downdraft started up, rising from the countertop. When it reached the top, it started down again. Pressing the buttons had no effect.

I pressed the stop button - it didn't stop.

I pressed the high and low fan buttons together - no effect.

I turned the power off at the breaker. When I turned it on again, Dacor started right up again. Up. Down. Up. Down.

I waited for the promised 30-second fail-safe to shut the unit down. Minutes passed. No shutdown.

I removed the grates to check for blockages. Nothing.

I removed the service panel and looked at the circuit board. All appears normal.

What do I do? Help me samurai!

acording to a service bulletin, it seems the Motor Limit Switches can move out of position ..

that may be the cause of your problem.

"The limit switches are now mounted directly on the drive motor body,
where they cannot move independently of the other motor assembly components.
It will now be much harder for the switches to move out of position once they have been secured.

The part number for the new drive motor/limit switch combination is 62198.
This part will fit into the older RV units, it will not fit into the RVR and RVC units.
The motor switch combination replaces parts 82712, 26652, 82713.
A service kit has been created to provide all of the necessary parts to accommodate this change
 - the kit part number is 86919.
The limit switch mounting change is indicated by a change to the Revision - on the serial
tag.
All units with serial tags RA through RF have the old motor/switch combination,
all units with serial numbers beginning with RG have the new motor switch combination."

Thank you! Any idea how I get at those motor switches? The way they are mounted into the assembly makes disassembling them challenging, to say the least...
