Question about GE Profile JVB98SHSS Kitchen Hood
I recently purchased this unit and had it installed, I noticed a few days ago that there does not appear to be much air suction into the venting system. The Airflow coming out of the vent on the exterior of my home is strong. But the unit does not seem to take in any of the steam or smoke when cooking on the range top. As this is a new unit, there is not a cleaning out the vent issue. Does anyone have any advice? I contacted GE and have an appt for next week. But am wondering if there is something else I am over looking.
There won't be any noticable suction like with a vacuum unless the cfm rating is very high. the distance of the hood from the cooking surface is a factor too as you are sucking in room air besides the stove fumes and steam.
