FIRST CHECK THE FILLTERS IN YOUR HOOD UNIT AND SEE WATH KIND THEY ARE IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY ARE USELESS , YOU SHOULD REPLACE THE HOOD FILLTERS WITH CARBON ONES AS THEY HAVE A LONG LIFE AND ARE VERY GOOD AND WORTH THE COST .

Cooker hood installation


A cooker hood needs to done by a competent qualified Electrician but basically depending on your surface of the cooker hood.Depending on the type of cooker hood you have(extract or outside) If it is a extraction (meaning you are using filters and not connected to a vent) The Electrician needs to connect the electric to a point or spur via a power switch on the wall which when you fit up the main part of the hub covers the spur. after that you need to measure and fit the cooker hood to your requirements but make sure your walls can support it and mark off the holes before drilling or check the walls for electric wires in terms of safety.

When it is windy outside the flap on my exhaust fan flaps open and shut. Is there a problem in the way the fan was installed?


Not likely, Just a condition of the location of the vent and the wind direction.Putting a secondary larger hood over the outside exposure will sometimes help alleviate this.

Noise from dash or windshield


I have the same problem I think it's the rubber flaps that cover the hood hinges, when the wind catches them they flap up and down it I have noticed it seems to be worse on a windy day.

Clicking sound with the unit off.


Its probaly the duct. There is a little hinged door which is in the ducking right where the fan connects to your duct's, somtimes they play in the wind. I have heard this problem before. Is the clicking perfectly sycronized?

Flap valve and noise


The flapper valve is a weather valve. Usually, it is installed in such a way that the flapper is vertical and closed. The pipe is installed on the horizontal...you'll need an EL pipe. Pivots allow it to open when the fan is on. If you don't install it, wind will blow into the unit and you will be rather unhappy.

It is possible that the sound you hear is normal when opened up. With all the covers in place, it should be nearly silent.
