Push start button it rises to top and starts. Few seconds later it drops half way down and runs ok for hours most times but can close completely, To shut it off from the 1/2 risen position I have to hold start button continually Until it travels all the way up again and then it closes and shuts off. What do I need to fix the unit? Thanks.

Does the hood rise or close to full resting position?

The switch could be bad. Over time grease and food get under the part and cause it to stick

It rises to full height, turns on then drops more than 1/2 way. May run fine at that level or close entirely but the fan keeps running. If i hold the start button it rises to the top, blower shuts off and it closes. Push the start button again and it goes through the same cycle.
