Why is my fan moving air, but it's not going outside?
To avoid personal injury or death, disconnect your appliance from its power source before you start any troubleshooting or repair work. Use caution when working inside any appliance.
Many vent hoods circulate air, but not all push the air outside of the home. You can tell if yours is a circulate-only, a vent-type hood, or a convertible hood by close examination of it.
Models with vent openings near the top front that the air blows through could be a circulate-only type of hood or a convertible type hood.
Models that have duct work coming out the top or back are probably a vent-type hood. Close examination will reveal what type you have.
If your hood has the vents in the front and the metal ductwork, then it is convertible. Careful inspection of the control panel may show a switch or lever to change where the range vent hood directs the air.
