Kitchen Remodeling - Installing a Hood Vent System Kitchen Remodeling - Installing a Hood Vent System
Install the hood/vent before the range or cook top so that you can reach all connections easily.
1. Connect a section of 6 or 7 inch metal ducting to the duct pipe entering the cabinet and to the hood. If these holes are too close for a turn, you may need to have a sheet metal box with nailing flanges made to your specifications.
2. Lift the hood into position and trace the holes for attaching the unit with the screws provided.
3. Connect the wiring in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
4. Connect the hood collar to the duct by tightening the metal collar provided or by wrapping duct tape around both collar and duct.
