My First New Kitchen -- Puzzled by Fan Filter

Seeker19104 | Nov 7, 2011 05:27 PM

Just got a long overdue kitchen renovation done in my rowhouse in Philadelphia. It looks lovely with travertine tile and copper countertops.

Used Maytag gas stove and microwave with built-in vent fan. As it's a small kitchen, the stove had to go against a brick wall so no room to do an outside vent.

Yesterday I cooked a steak on high heat in a cast iron pan. Yes, it smoked up the kitchen. The fan immediately told me I needed to clean the filter.

Today I removed and washed the filter above the cook top. Still getting the same message.

I'm stumped and would appreciate any advice.
