Installing can be accomplished on your own by following the manufacturer's guidelines and basic safety tips.
Steps and Some Tips
Prior to the installation, turn off the power supply at the circuit breaker. If you are opting for the ducted type, making an appropriate size hole in the kitchen wall is necessary for directing the duct to the outside. You can complete this task with the help of another person.
First, align the appliance over the top of the cook-top, the height of the hood should be 25-30 inches above the cooking surface. Mark the location for the vent work and the electrical cable (if required) by using a pencil. Ensure that there are no obstructions inside the wall within the markings.
Place it down and make the holes for the venting and electrical cables according to the pencil markings. You can use a reciprocating saw for the preparation of holes in the walls. After making the duct cut-outs, you can fix the outside vent as per the instructions provided in the kit.
In order to fill up the opening between the vent and the walls, you can apply silicone caulking both to the outside and inside of the wall before connecting the electrical wiring.
Allow the other person to hold the appliance in place and fasten the screws. Recheck the screws again for tight fixation. Mount the fan and filter according to the guidelines. The next step is fixing the electrical connections.
Follow the instructions carefully while connecting the wiring of the fan and lighting of the appliance. Note the color of the wires for the correct connections. Place the electrical cover properly to protect the wiring.
Turn on the power supply and check whether the fan and lighting are functioning properly or not. You can add a unique style to the decorations by using custom-designed copper range hoods that suit every type of kitchen design and accessories.
