Question about Euro-Pro EPH18-236SS Vent-A-Hood Euro Pro Series 18" Wall Mount Specialty Hood

1 Answer

Vent-A-Hood dumping water on Cooktop

In the Oct-Nov time frame, we find a cup of water on the cooktop in the morning every couple of days. It looks to be coming thru the inside of the vent draft and it does not need to rain. The water accumulates in the fan housing. At some point, it spills out on the deck.
The 6 inch vent rises 2 ft above the hood, turns at a 45 12 feet to a 45 thru the roof. It is all dry on the outside of the vent. The roof vent is not rusted.
We contacted VentAHood. They have "never heard of this" and do not have a suggestion

Only thing i can think of would be a condensation issue. see if it is when you have a temperature change outside while it is warm in you home.

Condensation dripping from range hood / filters


Am suffering the same problem. When dinner is being prepared on the hob and plenty of steam is being expelled by cooker hood fan drips fall on the hob. Have just discovered the cause one hour ago.

The steam is condensing on the electric motor stator casing. This mass of cold steel will always cause problems with our type of hood. Am waiting to talk to our kitchen installer to see what remedy he suggests. I would have expected the hood manufacturer to insulate the cold motor casing as part of the design.

Can this be installed over an island?


Bring a focal point to your kitchen by having an island range hood, combining function and elegant form. A suspended hood is also an efficient way to vent
grease, odors and smoke to the outside from a island stovetop while you cook. You can install an island range hood in just a few hours with the right tools
and knowledge.
1.Wear safety glasses and work gloves. Turn off the electricity to your kitchen at the circuit panel. Cover the circuit breaker with a piece of electrical
tape to prevent people from turning the on switch while you are at work.
2.Lay work drop cloths on your cooktop and floor to catch dust and debris. Mark the duct opening with a pencil in the ceiling, where the island hood will be
installed. Be sure the opening is centered directly above your cooktop. Cut the opening using a hacksaw.
3.Go up to the roof, using a cat's claw and hammer to remove stucco, tiles, sheathing and insulation to make way for the steel venting duct. Drop a
plumb bob down the roof, making sure the line is straight down for the ductwork.
4.Follow the manufacturer's instructions for locations, installing 2-by-2 wooden blocks in the ceiling to hold the ductwork hangers.
5.Install the venting duct from the outside of the home, down to the location of the exhaust vents on the island hood. The ducts should easily slip into each
other. Secure all the duct sections with duct sealing putty, using a putty knife.
6.Screw a roof cap on the end of the duct at the roof. Seal any openings or gaps where the roof, ceiling and duct meet with silicon sealant. Let the sealant
dry, then paint with colors matched to the surrounds.
7.Place your hood upside-down on the floor, with the fan and filter facing upward. Locate and unscrew the metal electrical box cover on the island range
hood, to expose the wiring
8.Install the hood cover to the load-bearing ceiling frame with the package hardware through the four inside mounting corner flanges on the cover.
9.Measure what will be the distance from the bottom of your hood to the cooktop; it should not exceed 30 inches for exhaust efficiency. Have a helper hold
the hood in place while you attach the hood on the hood cover using the included screws. Use a level be sure the hood is level as mounted.
10.Connect the electrical wiring by consulting the manufacturer's suggestions or hire an electrician if you are not familiar with house wiring. Tuck the wires neatly in the hood electrical box and then replace the cover, after connecting the hood wires to the wall wiring.
11.Remove the electrical tape on the circuit breaker, turn on the electricity to your kitchen and test your island range hood.

GE Profile Telescoping Downdraft system gets stuck.


try to remove your cooktop and see if the vent unit is in your countertop too tightly. by removing the cooktop it will give the vent more space. if it works that way, then you might have to make more space for both to fit properly. i have seen this happen before and its probably what is causing it to bind and then drop suddenly. i hope you dont have a marble, slate or rock type countertop as they are very hard to trim just a little off to get everything to fit.
