Hi, my electrician has jsut installed my range hood & it appears too low. Could you please tell me the height distance from the LOWEST point (being the sides at the front) & the middle height ( from the front mid section) I have tried to desypher the measurement guide to no luck. I don't want to be duped cos the electrician can't be bothered to change it.
It is 600mm for electric hobs to 650mm min for gas hobs.The point of measure is from the top of the cooktop to the filter on the rangehood.You can have it higher if you want but it starts to not work as efficiently especially if you have cross winds such as open windows.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Measure your inseam length by standing barefoot against a wall, use a book to press up as high as possible between your legs, and measure the distance from the top of the book to the floor.
Take that length and multiply that with 0.65 to give you the distance from the top of your saddle down to the center of you BB axle, where your crank goes through. The distance indicated by A on this pic.
There are two adjustment screws at the top of each headlight. They are visible when the hood is up. Use an Allen wrench (hex) of the proper size to turn one screw to adjust the height and the other for lateral adjustment.
It is best to position the vehicle on a level surface a facing a wall or garage door. The vehicle can be about 8 feet from the wall during adjustment.
Adjust the light left/right and up/down with those adjustment screws. The head lights should point somewhat straight ahead at the same height as the headlight itself and the same distance apart.
After adjustment, park the car on the street at night, turn light son and stand about 50 feet form the vehicle to see if either light (low beams) seem too high. It would appear brighter if it is too high, dimmer if it is too low.
Headlamp Adjustment —Screen Method Aiming
NOTE: Horizontal aim is not necessary for this vehicle and is not adjustable. NOTE: Consult your state's vehicle inspection manual for recommended tolerance ranges for visual aiming.
NOTE: The sight shield may need to be positioned or removed for access to the adjusters. Before starting headlamp assembly adjustment:
Check the tire inflation.
Check that no other load is in the vehicle other than a half tank of gas.
Check that the headlamps are clean.
Check for correct headlamp operation.
Check that the vehicle is on level ground.
If the vehicle is equipped with air suspension, make sure the switch is on.
NOTE: The vertical wall or screen must be a minimum of 2.4 meters (8 feet) wide.
Park the vehicle on a level surface approximately 7.6 meters (25 feet) from the vertical wall or screen directly in front of it.
NOTE: The center of the lamp is marked by a 3 mm (0.12 in) circle on the headlamp lens. Mark a horizontal reference line on the vertical wall or screen.
Measure the center of the headlamp height to ground and record.
Make a 2.4 meters (8 feet) horizontal mark (masking tape) on the vertical wall or screen at the same distance from the ground as previously recorded.
NOTE: This procedure should be done in a dark environment to effectively see the headlamp beam pattern. Turn on the low beam headlamps to illuminate the wall or screen and open the hood.
NOTE: The appearance of the beam pattern may vary between vehicles. On the wall or screen, locate the high intensity area of the beam pattern.
NOTE: The appearance of the beam pattern may vary between vehicles.
Identify at the top edge of this high intensity area a distinct horizontal cutoff in the beam pattern. If the top edge of this cutoff is not even with the horizontal reference line, the headlamp beam will need to be adjusted.
How to use the reticle:
The vertical scale (reticle) visible through the left half of the binocular, above the compass display, allows you to calculate distance to an object if you know its height, or to calculate the height of an object if you know its distance from you.
Each mark on the vertical scale has a value of 5 MIL (1Mil is equivalent to an angel that can determined an object one meter in height at a distance of 1000 meters). Therefore, if a navigation chart gives the height of an object, by sighting on it and counting the number of MILS, you can determine how far away it is.
To Measuer distance when height is known:
Object Height(m)/Scale Reading x 1000m=Distance in Meters
To Measure height when distance is known:
Distance(m)xScale Reading/1000=Object height in meters
