bjbj Installing a range hood can greatly reduce
odors that occur while in the kitchen, and installation is quick and easy! Today, we
will show 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.
Today, 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! To stay up-to-date on all of Menard s helpful how-to
