This range hood includes three main components – the hood itself, the venting assembly and the hood’s duct cover. Begin by measuring to find the center point on the wall where the hood will be installed. A mounting template is provided with the hood. Tape this template to the wall, aligning it and leveling it on your center point mark.
Drill holes through the template as indicated for the mounting bracket.
Remove the template and use 2” drywall screws to install the hood mounting bracket to the wall. If the screws don’t hit a stud, install wall anchors for support.
Fit the hood onto the mounting bracket. The horizontal bar on the hood bracket slips over the flange on the mounting bracket.
Following the manufacturer’s instructions and dimensions, use a drywall saw to cut a hole through the wall for the vent elbow (Image 1).
Measure from the elbow to the hood outlet and transfer that measurement to the vent pipe. Use metal snips to cut the pipe to the proper length.
Use sheet metal screws to attach the vent pipe, then fit the duct cover in place atop the range hood. The cover extends to the top of the wall and attaches to an elbow bracket with a screws (Image 2).
Extend the exhaust duct to the outside wall. Cut another hole for the duct and attach an exterior exhaust cover to the outside wall. Connect the interior duct pipe to the exhaust cover.
Attach the wiring for the range hood’s exhaust fan and light (if provided) to the home’s electrical wiring according to the manufacturer‘s instructions.
