Range Hood Wiring

I recently purchased a range hood. I was wondering if I could take the wires from it and put a plug on them. I have an electric socket very close and would like to be able to do it this way. Is this a normal way to do this? I am not very knowledgeable on electric concerns. Any help would be appreciated!

No, this is not the way to do it. If the recp. is close run a wire inside the wall and hard wire the hood fan.

Talking Do your homework

Before you hard-wire to any circuit, do your math whether that circuit can take up the load of that rangehood. Typically range hood draws about 8-9 Amps of current(that's a lot); and depending on the loads that are already on that existing branch circuit, you may have to run a dedicated 15A circuit from the panel.

Do your homework and reply back with the results. We'll help you more.
