We are building a home that will have an over the stove outside exhaust fan. Our builder will not put in a downdraft exhaust (not a custom builder). My wife wants a Jennair downdraft dual fuel stove. The supervisor for the home builder says he will put in a vent at the base of the wall where the stove will be and run an exhaust up the inside wall before it is drywalled so the vent can connect into the exhaust pipe for the hood vent. Will this work for a Jennair downdraft range?

We would probably have to go t from a 6" opening at the base of the wall to a 4" pipe if we put it inside the wall to run up to the exhaust pipe above the range hood.

According to the install manual, you need very specific ventilation and utility locations.

The 6 1/4" vent opening must be located on a centerline 8 3/8" above the floor and within 3 1/4" to the right (when facing the cabinet opening) of the centerline of the cabinet opening as shown in

figure 10.

See this link to be sure you properly rough out the opening. Dont second guess the manufacturer. This link is for a 30 inch dual range. If your model is different, Jenn Aire posts installation manuals at the second link:

Jenn Air ranges are *very* specific about the vent specifications they will work properly with. If it is not installed according to the installation instructions, it likely will not perform well.

I suggest you get the Jenn Air venting manual (available from Maytag whom owns Jenn Air) and have your builder/contractor *thoroughly* read it or contact a Jenn Air approved installer to check and/or install the unit for you.

Also, most manufacturers recommend NOT making any final installation preparations until you have the product in hand. If you read any of the installation guides they usually state "specifications subject to change without notice" which does occur from time to time.
