It should mount sqaurely to the bottom of the cabinets over the stove/oven
you will need a 120v power supply
but it is pretty straight forward other wise

Best way to install a 30 inch range hood

The pipe size on the old one was 8 inch and you are putting in a 6? There are no issues with that. IF it was the other way then the pipe was 6 and the hood was 8, there would be an issue. Ductless systems vent the vapor back into the room and there is no benefit from it other than to reduce the steam. If there is a metal filter grid from scintillated metal then it will attempt to catch the grease vapor because it is a lower temp.

I have a Goldstar mv1610ww that is currently set up for external/ducted venting. How do I switch it to ductless/recirculated venting? What additional parts do I need? It currently has the perforated v

That information is in your installation manual that came with the oven.

If for some reason you don't still have that, then you can order it or see a video at LG's site.

The LG product support page for your model is here.

If you'll scroll down to the middle video, they show you how to install it.

That will help you when you uninstall the oven so you can swap the vent fan assembly around.

I would bet you'd also need to order a charcoal filter.

The service manuals is here, but it does not contain part numbers.

You can get LG part numbers and order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

We would need your brand and model number to be able to answer, but your installation instructions would tell.

If for some reason you don't still have yours:

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

Yes the ductless fan will work for you. I have that setup here at my house. Just make sure that you have a charcoal filter installed in the microwave where the air comes out on top. If it is already vent less the filter is probably already there.

Try to check the resistance of your room air and coil thermistor may be its out of range the reading of both thermistor is 8000 to 10000 ohms @ 25deg C temperature. if its higher or lower then the thermistor is out of range and need replacement. And try also to check your terminals and connector for loose.
