Vario 400 series downdraft ventilation

Product Description

Gaggenau Vario 400 series downdraft ventilation

Regardless of whether it is installed with a visible edge or flush-mounted next to the Vario cooking appliances, the VL 414 downdraft ventilation draws steam downwards directly from where it arises. Up to four ventilation elements can be combined with a fan unit, which operates quietly, precisely and efficiently and is controlled conveniently via a single AA 490 control knob.


  • Maximum air output in combination with AR inline blower/ remote blower or recirculation kit. For CFM info, refer to the Models & Dimensions, Edition 2013.
  • Noise level depends on the built-in situation.


  • Ventilation flaps will open when manually pushed down.
  • Closing element made of stainless steel, dishwasher-safe.
  • Metal grease filter with grease dripping tray, dishwasher-safe.
  • Sensor-controlled operation of the AR blower if at least one VL 414 downdraft unit is open.
  • No duct connection pieces are included. Must order AD724040 transition to 5″ round duct to vent downwards/to left or to the right side and AD724041 adaptor if venting to left or right side of VL 414 downdraft.


  • Plan for a 6.6′ connection cable between VL 414 downdraft and AA 490 control knob.
