Range hood installation

I am installing the nutone 36" WS1 Series Range Hood. It says for the 7" Ducted Discharge that the 7" damper is sold separately. I have looked at home depot and Lowes and the only sell 6" or 8" dampers that have to be manually opened. I don't understand. My idiot friend knocked out the wrong knock-out panel(side instead of top)and spilled something on the instructions making the important parts unreadable.How should I reseal the panel? Where is the baffle?Does the damper duct connector come with the hood? Very little else does. What type of screws and washers should I use to minimize vibration noise? This is a NuTone Allure range hood WS1 series. I would like to install it under the stove cabinets(T configuration).The outside vent is horizontal to the top panel.

1.Place the range hood on the floor upside down. Remove the filter and bottom cover, along with the duct-connector-damper, if it has one on the inside, using a socket wrench or screwdriver. Find the knockout plugs on the inside of the hood. Knock out the plug located at the back of the hood unit using a hammer and screwdriver.
2.Attach the damper to the rear of the hood, and twist to screw in place. Ask your helper to put the hood on the wall. Check the kitchen hood with a
carpenter's leveler to make sure the hood is level and not crooked. Use a pencil to trace the opening on the wall.

3.Locate the breaker box or fuse box in the utility room or basement, and turn off the power to the room or turn off the main breaker to power off the entire
home.

4.Cut out the knockout hole you made on the wall with a reciprocating saw. Fit your drill using an extension shaft and a 3/8-inch spade or masonry bit. Drill four holes into the exterior wall using the four corners of the knockout hole opening as your guide. Go outside with your reciprocating saw, and cut from
hole to hole to finish cutting out the exterior wall. Check the wiring with a voltage meter.

5.Ask your helper to hold the hood against the wall. Feed the electrical cable into the hood, and push the hood tightly against the wall. Secure the range
hood to the cabinet using the screws provided and your drill. Connect the wires with wire nuts by connecting the ground wire to the ground screw in the hood and black to black, and white to white.

6.Put silicone caulk to the underside of the wall cap. Slide the wall cap's end through the outside wall. Attach the duct-connector-damper to the range
hood. Tighten up on the clamp provided to secure the hood and damper, or use duct tape to secure the two parts. Screw the cap to the exterior wall. Go back to the kitchen, and install the parts removed from the hood such as the filter and bottom cover.

7.Turn the power back on, and test the light and fan.range hood installation - 8_3_2012_9_43_14_am.jpg

Brian range hood model CJD130SS fan light on display flashes with fan off or on.


I believe that's the "change or clean filter" indication. Clean the aluminum filters in the dishwasher, replace the charcoal filters if non-ducted, press the fan light over 3 seconds and it should reset.

In winter, cold air blows back down and out through the fan.


Hi,
Either a backdraft damper was never installed in the ductwork or the damper is stuck open...
Has it always been this way?? If so then the damper probably was never installed and you will need to have one installed to stop the air...
If it was good at the beginning and now is not then the damper is stuck open...you will need to find it and then get it working agian...
The dampers often are right at the outlet of the hood...if you take down the hood it should be right there...

Noisy fan or motor?


HI. The most common issue here will be with a loose motor shaft. This is the part that the fan blades are mounted on. When this occurs, the looseness will cause the motor, and shaft to wobble, thus, causing this noise you here at high speeds. The wobble is less violent during the slower speeds, so it is not loud, in this case.

The second issue will be a warped fan blade. This will cause the fan to rub against the shroud, thus, creating the noise, as well.

If the shaft is loose, or bent, the entire motor will need to be replaced. Now, if the fan blade is warped, you can, simply, unscrew the blade from the shaft, and replace it(on most model)

Range vent damper noise


Check to make sure that the installer completely untaped the damper when he installed it. It needs to be able to move freely.

Damper need for Broan Range Hood


I called tech support at Broan and was told they recommend two dampers in cold climates ...one at in the wall cap and one on the unit. They make the damper,
(#BP87-7"), that attaches to the round duct plate that comes with the hood. Strangely the unit does not include a round damper and the seller LOWES did not have it, also checked Home Depot,.
The Tech said they can't get stores to stock it. I checked at a local supplier of all kinds of plumbing, heating, and cooling supplies and they only had basic 7" dampers which, I was told would probably be too heavy, and be manual. I ordered it through Amazon/True Value ($11.56 w/ shipping, shipping more than cost of damper). Tech indicated that the 2nd (unit damper) is optional and may not be needed if in a warm climate. I would suggest that Broan include the $5.00 item in their unit or at least sellers stock it.
