Wire for Kitchen Hood

I am trying to install a new hood (filtered and non-vented) over the range in the kitchen. I need some help with wiring. There is only one recepticle outlet near by. No other wiring is accessible. I'd like to do this without drilling into cabinets or drywalls. Is there way that I can pull out the power from the outlet to the hood? I'd appreciate a suggestion. Thank you.

Range hoods are considered as fixed appliances. You are not supposed to connect to a receptacle in the kitchen, nook, dining, pantry areas. YOu may connect to a receptacle in a living room or bedroom or den. Look on the opposite side of the wall and see if you get lucky and have a receptacle in one of those rooms that is in the same stud space as your connection to the range hood. Then you can fish straight up that stud space to your range hood. If you don't have a receptacle in the same stud space then you may go into your crawl space and drill a hole into that wall space and again into a wall under an existing recepatcle. Fish a wire from that existing receptacle into the crawl space then up the wall to the range hood and you have it.

Hope this helps
