Kitchen Hub - Fan Comes on Automatically

If your fan comes on automatically when cooking, there are two possible reasons:
Chef Connect Feature
  • Cooking appliances with Chef Connect can be set-up so that the vent fan comes on automatically when the cooktop burners are turned on. For more information: Chef Connect Feature
Heat Sensor 
  • This unit is equipped with a heat sensor that will activate the vent fan if excessive temperatures are detected above the cooktop surface. This is designed to protect the Kitchen Hub components from overheating. 
  • If fan is “OFF” and excessive temperature is detected, the fan will automatically turn to “LOW” speed. You may adjust fan speed to “MEDIUM”, “HIGH”, or “BOOST”, but you will not be able to turn to “OFF” until temperatures return to an acceptable level.
