Installing a range hood can greatly reduce odors that occur while in the kitchen, and installation is quick and easy! , we will explain you a quick way to update your kitchen, with a Broan range hood from Menards! Range hoods come in a variety of shapes, styles and options, including with or without a vent. , we will be installing a duct free model.
Bob Miller from Broan explains to us the benefits of upgrading to a new range hood Well a range hood will exhaust cooking odors to outdoors, if it s a vented range hood. Or if it s a vent free range hood, it will circulate the odors through a charcoal filter. It s inexpensive and easy to install. Better performance and quieter.
Start by removing the old range hood or microwave.
Next you want to make sure there are firm strips under the shelf to attach mounting screws. For a recessed shelf like the one we are working with, measure and cut two pieces of one-by-three wood and attach under the cabinet. Next, take your range hood, hold it up to where it will be installed, and mark where the screws should go. Because the range hood has keyhole slots, partially install the screws.
This way, you can easily slide the range hood into place.
After the hood is in place, tighten the screws. Now it s time to attach the electrical wiring. In this case, we already have a 14-3 pigtail because we had a receptacle in the cabinet, so we are stripping the wires. Remove the electrical cover and feed the wires through the knockout electrical opening.
Then attach the black wire to black wire and white wire to white wire using nuts.
Finally, attach the ground wire to the green ground screw and replace the electrical box cover. After turning the power back on, install the light bulb and i check the range hood to make sure everything works fine. This range hood uses a duct free filter that should be changed about 12 months or so.
That s it!
Now you have a new range hood that offers an optimal odor-eliminating solution for your kitchen that will last for years to come!
