Question about Kenmore 1200 CFM External Blower Assembly Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

I would like to remove the internal blower of the Kenmore range hood model 233.52363200 (370 CFM) and substitute with the Kenmore 1200 CFM external blower assembly. The hood is in place and the back splash has been installed around it. So I don't want to remove the hood, itself. Is there any reason why I cannot do this?

    Thank you.
    Is this just a straightforward connection or will I need to modify the wiring in some way for the controls?
    And will the additional current draw make a different?

    Again, thanks for your help.

There is no reason you shouldn't be able to do that. You can unplug or remove the interneal fan and add a blower assembly to the outside vent so it pulls the air out.

    Since the new fan is more CFM than the older one, the placement should not make a difference. The wiring and controls should also be the same. It is the same voltage

In winter, cold air blows back down and out through the fan.

Either a backdraft damper was never installed in the ductwork or the damper is stuck open...
Has it always been this way?? If so then the damper probably was never installed and you will need to have one installed to stop the air...
If it was good at the beginning and now is not then the damper is stuck will need to find it and then get it working agian...
The dampers often are right at the outlet of the hood...if you take down the hood it should be right there...
