Question about GE ZV750SY Kitchen Hood
It is -30C outside and the overhead hood is dripping water when I turn it on. This is a brand new house and a new hood what can be causing it to drip.
I have the same problems with my vertical hood duct. Condensation si causing the humidity of the room that slowly escapes to condensate and come back down. I insulated with rigid polystyrene foam to R-7 but it is not enough yet. I think I'll need to make it go horizontal as soon as it goes in the roof and the condensation should be on a down slope to the outside

The hood pipe vents through the roof. Either the shingles around the pipe, or the rubber flange the pipe goes through is allowing water to enter and run down the pipe.
Someone will have to go on the roof with a tube of roof cement and look for a void in the flange or the shingles. For sure I would run a bead of roof cement around the pipe where it goes through the flange.
