If you have the hot and common wires connected (black to black and white to white) it should work. If not, try connecting a length of wire to the ground wire and connect to ground, such as a copper cold water pipe, radiator, heater vent, or the ground terminal in a nearby outlet. If it works then, you need to splice an extension to the ground wire to connect in the box where the hot and common are. Keep in mind all splices must be inside an approved box. If it still doesn't work, yours is not the first nor the last defective hood to be sold.

How do you replace?


Kitchen hood replacement can be completed easily with a family member or a friend. While you may wonder why anyone would replace a kitchen hood, the answer usually is simple. Here is how to replace a kitchen hood.
Tools Needed

  • New Range/Kitchen Hood
  • Screws
  • Screwdriver
  • Friend
  • Wiring Nuts
  • Circuit Tester

Warning: Remember that you are dealing with electricity, so stay away from water and use all safety precautions issued by the manufacturer.
Step 1 - Shut off Electricity

Remember to turn off the electrical supply to the old kitchen hood. You will need to do this via the circuit breaker box. Wait for 10 to 20 minutes and then test the wires with the circuit tester to double check that no electricity is being supplied to the kitchen hood.

Step 2 - Remove Old Hood

After you know for a fact that it is not receiving an electrical current, you can begin the process of removing the older kitchen hood. You should first take off the electrical wiring cover that is located by the light fixture. Then have your family member or friend hold up the old kitchen hood while you remove any screws or bolts from it. Once that is done, you can then freely slide it off.
Step 3 - Check Wiring

Double check that you have at least 12 inches of wiring to connect your kitchen hood to the wall. It should be noted that if you have a kitchen hood without vents, proceed to step 5 next.
Step 4 - Find the Ducts

If your new kitchen hood has vents, you will need to locate the fan or vent duct. Once you have found it, you can open up the vent hole where it will belong.
Step 5 - Wires

Open up the covering for the wiring and put the covering in a safe area for easy reach.
Step 6 - Install the New Kitchen Hood

Have your friend or family member hold up the kitchen hood and mark the areas where the screws or bolts will be. Then have them put down the kitchen hood and screw in the screws half way into the holes. After that, you can slide in the kitchen hood.
Step 7 - Route Wiring

Lightly pull the wiring through the proper holes and connect both black wires from the new kitchen hood to the black wire from the wall with a wire nut. Then connect the two white wires from the hood with the white wire from the wall, again using a wire nut. Next, connect the green wire to the green ground screw. Then place the wire covering back on.
Step 8 - Tighten Screws

Finish tightening the screws in place.
Step 9 - Test

Check to make sure the fan and light work. If it is supposed to vent outside, make sure that the air is leaving the vent with no issues. If something does not work proper, repeat steps 6 and 7 until everything works well. Remember that you will be working with electrical equipment, so follow safety measures issued by the state or the city.

Pacific range hood hass two and one green cord, wall has black, white and ground. Which black cord do I attach to the white?


It doesn't matter as long as the green is to ground. If you were powering multiple units in series it would be different, but in your case it doesnt matter.

This is a straight forward wiring project involving 110 volts of electricity and a 15 amp circuit.

If there is already power available at this location use it. If not, run a wire to the cabinet above the hood location with enough extra to drop down into the hood area and hook it up.

Once you have the power wire in place it is just a matter of hooking the wires up black-black, white-white, ground-ground screw.

enjoy your new hood.

Wiring hookup


The 2 black wires on the hood go to the black from the wall. The 2 black on the hood is in case you want separate switches as 1 is for fan and 1 is for light. The green goes to the bare copper wire. Its the ground. And are you sure the wire is yellow? It should be white and connect to the other white. This is the neutral.

Miele DA230-2


The latest DA230-3 hood is a 120V 15amp model and has a black/red wire to live, a white wire to neutral and a green to ground.

You may have a 220V model. I suggest to have a licensed electrician hard wire according to the voltage, load, and circuit rating listed on this data plate.
