The bottom of the hood should be atleast 750mm from the top of a gas burner. Measure up from this atleast 450mm for your hole to be drilled.

Just purchased the above dryer. There is NO Power in the machine. Have checked the electrical cords and power right to the machine than nothing.

  • Measure the amount of distance between your dryer and your venting exit point. This is how many feet of duct to buy. Note how many turns the duct will need to make, and purchase that number of 90-degree fittings. Remember that your venting exit point must be at least 1 foot above ground level, and that your path shouldn't be longer than 25 feet, with 5 feet subtracted for every 90-degree turn.
  • Drill a hole through the wall in the area you'll install the vent. This step is to test for obstructions. Look for the hole outside, and check for obstructions there, too.
  • Bore a 4¼-inch diameter hole into your designated and tested venting exit point, using your bi-metal hole saw on your drill. Start the hole outside of the house. Brace the drill against your leg to help keep it steady, and pull it out frequently to avoid overheating the tool.
  • Install your vent's cap by screwing it over the hole you just drilled. Caulk around any gaps.
  • Cut away excess length from a straight section of duct using your tin snips. Construct the entire length of your duct by snapping the seams together. Start at the dryer. Attach one end of your duct work to your dryer's exhaust point, which is at the back of the dryer. The pieces should fit together snugly.
  • cover the seams between your 90-degree fittings and your straight lengths with metal foil tape. Connect the last piece of metal duct to the cap you installed earlier. Every 5 feet, attach the metal duct work to the wall using metal pipe straps and screws.
  • Plug in your dryer and turn it on to test your work.

    I have one not vented out side is that normal? It has slits on both sides.

    Please check your manual as many hoods can be recirculating, if this is the case then you should also make sure you have a charcoal filter fitted.

    How easy is installation of a Rangemaster chimney hood?

    There is a template supplied for drilling holes in the appropriate places. If it is a large hood over 900mm best to have a friend help you. Most important is to check that the bottom of the hood is at least 750mm above the gas burners. Definately use a qualified eletrician to wire this for you.

    Install a Thermador UCV36 cook'n'vent

    Hi schmidt_rich,

    I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

    Your question is: You took over as owner builder when your builder "took the $ and ran". You are installing kitchen cabs now and discovered the PVC vent pipe (which goes into the foundation and out the side of the house) is in the wrong place for the location of the downdraft unit and integral blower. The vent is actually under the electrical connection panel. You were told initially( 2 yrs ago when you bought the downdraft cook'n'vent) there could be no bends in the exhaust fan route or it would change the effectiveness. Does anyone know if it is ok to put a bend in the connection to the vent? Or do you need to redo your kitchen cabinets?

    I can syphathise. I have had to deal with this same problem. I have found that one ell will not degrade the effectiveness enough to notice. If you need more then you may need to adjust cabinets.

    Feel free contact me again!
