Install your range hood and wall mount vent

Wall mount vent hood installed above a gas range

Installing a range hood and wall mount vent is a difficult process, so we recommend contacting a licensed electrician. For your convenience, we've provided the requirements for installation, as well as the manual, so you can confirm everything is ready before the professionals arrive.

Installation requirements

Electrical requirements

  • A 120V, 60Hz, AC only, 15-amp fused electrical circuit is required.

  • Wire sizes and connections must conform with the rating of the appliance as specified on the model/serial rating plate. The model/serial plate is located behind the filter on the rear wall of the range hood.

  • Venting requirements

  • Vent system must reach outdoors.
  • Do not end the vent system in an attic or other enclosed areas.
  • Do not use a 4 inch (10.2 centimeter) laundry-type wall cap.
  • Using a rigid metal vent is recommended. Plastic or metal foil vents are not recommended.
  • The length of the vent system and the number of elbows should be kept to a minimum for efficient performance.
