Question about Kitchen Ranges
This was in the manual linked by Scott201201 :
Jenn-Air's ventilation system is designed to capture both cooking fumes and smoke
from any place on the grill surface. If the system does not, these are some ducting installation situations to check:
• 6" diameter round or 31/4'' x 10" rectangular ducting should be used for duct
lengths 10'-60'. 5" diameter round ducting must be used if the duct length is
10' or less.
• No more than three 90 ° elbows should be used. Distance between elbows should be at least 18".
• Recommended Jenn-Air wall cap should be used. Make sure damper moves
freely when ventilation system is operating.
• There should be a minimum clearance of 6" for cooktop installed near a side
wall. If there is not an obvious improper installation, there may be a concealed problem such as a pinched joint, obstruction in the pipe, etc. Installation is the responsibility of the installer and questions should be addressed first by the installer. The installer should very carefully check the ducting installation instructions.
Here is a link to some suitable ducting and hose clamps: http://www.partselect.com/PartSearchResults.aspx?ModelNum=SEG196&mfgModelNum=&fkMfgID=1&Hint=duct
But you should be able to use any mettalic ducting you can find at a hardware store.
Installing the duct should be a lot like ducting a clothes dryer. You will need a suitable cap with a damper, same as used for a clothes dryer. Goto Home Depot or a similar store and they will have everything you need.
