Question thermador downdraft was struggling, now mostly dead
Model Number: UCV236DS   Brand: Thermador   Age: 1 - 5 years

Well, the title pretty much says it. I have a downdraft bought about two years ago. The models are:

UCV236DS (downdraft)
VTN600CV2C (blower)

I don't believe it's under warranty, and remodeling literally lasted almost a year after I bought it, so I figured that was probably out anyway.

At first it worked fine, then it started having problems raising. Not always, but about one out of five to eight uses it would stop before fully extending, and the whole panel would flash with blue lights. You had to unplug and replug and then it would usually make it. It also sounded like it was struggling fairly hard to extend fully even when it worked.

Well, given the warranty situation and my substantial lack of technical ability I figured the best policy would be to ignore it and hope for the best. Predictably, that has resulted in a downdraft that as of tonight stopped extending. It goes up a tiny bit and then you hear a sort of hollow clicking sound that seems to come from the left side of the unit. No flashing blue lights anymore, even.

So, does that sound like an identifiable problem? What would you suggest? Thanks so much for reading.
