Do vented range hoods blow air into the house?

We have installed a vented range hood 30" kenmore elite. I can feel the suction working but it also has prefabricated holes in the front of the unit that blows cool air. I just want to ensure that we have installed it correctly and that it is suppose to have air blowing from it. We have it vented outside but I am concerned that is not hooked up right because I am not sure if it should still blow cool air indoors.

We have a vented kenmore range hood that is vented thru a pipe (out the top of the hood) to the outside of the house; air comes out the top of the hood and blows into the kitchen. why is air blowing out...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you may have a clog, in the vent pipe, not uncommon in the winter for wild things to build nest..
their is also a air damper plate, that might be stuck, this damper prevents outside air from blowing back in

Brand new Kenmore microwave fan does not **** up air


It's easier to notice air blowing out of something than it is to notice air being sucked into something. Put a pot of boiling water on the stove and see if the oven sucks up the steam from it. If it does, it's working fine.

No suction


There is a set of blocks that are installed on the venting system to make the unit recirculate....use the manual to find them and make sure your not venting half outside and half into the kitchen.

No Air suction into downdraft.


there won't be any noticable suction like with a vacuum unless the cfm rating is very high. the distance of the hood from the cooking surface is a factor too as you are sucking in room air besides the stove fumes and steam.
