Question about Kenmore 52153 Stainless Steel Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Vent hood not exhausting properly

Kenmore vent hood has exhaust on both sides, has vertical vent into attic, and is mounted on wall above stove. The exhaust is weak as it does not pull smoke/steam upwards well. I removed the filters on boths sides. With the exhaust fan turned on - Towards the front air is blowing out and towards the back there a suction up/out; however, the front output is much stronger than the back input. If I did not know better, I would think the exhaust fan was rotating backwards. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    I kinda have the same problem...some air is blown out of the kitchen but some do come back from the front panel causing the smell to escape from exhaust fan and into the house...the handyman at my place told me there is about $60 part that is called "deflector" that needs to be installed...but I don't find anything called that.

I would like to put my cook top on an island in the centre of my kitchen how would i vent down thru a crawl space???


Get a downdraft cook top and drill a hole. Then run the piping to the outside wall of the house and drill again and run the piping thru to the outside. They make outside wall vents like dryer vents only bigger to accommodate the bigger vent pipe. Happy crawling. It will look and work great if you get a good stove. Do your research.

It sounds like there is a restriction in the vent or the hood is to low. It should be at least 18" above the cooking surface.

I have a dayton kitchen exhaust blower mod no. 4hz65, 1/25 hp, 1550 rpm, 115 volts, 1.5 amps, 8 inches. it does not seem to do the job, do i need a stronger one?


Remember air will only move as fast as the size of the exhaust pipe in relationship to the fans ability to push. Make sure yours is the proper size for the fans volume.

Check to make sure that the installer completely untaped the damper when he installed it. It needs to be able to move freely.

There is no kit to make this conversion. That being said, you could get an estimate from a sheet metal fabrication shop on creating the conversion you are seeking.

Good luck with it.

Internal cooker hood


Hi judav,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You live in a flat with no chimney and you would like to install a cooker hood. how do you do this please?

Is there living space above? If so you can't go straight up. If your range is on an outside wall, it can be piped out the back. If only attic or roof above, no problem. Just pipe it straight up useing B-vent pipe or equivlent. If you can't do any of this just get a hood that vents filtered air back into the room.

Feel free contact me again!
