In the process of diagnosing the problem, the circuit board burned out and the fan switch broke. Had a great deal of difficulty removing the unit. Had to disconnect gas line to range top and remove it first before I could remove the downdraft unit. I still had to get some crazy glue to hold down new microswitch on top of the unit. It is finally working fine now.
