Product worked fine but difficult to installI bought this hood to replace a microwave hood. It works fine. The noise is significant but it is not too bad. Air flow is good. Looks good. However, it took me two days and several tries to finally install it. The problem is that the motor and fan is in one side of the unit and obstructed the view of the holes that I am to hang the unit. Installation instruction ask that one shall mark the four holes but only two holes are visible. We have a framed cabinet and need two pieces of filler 1x2. We finally figure our an alternative method by installing the 1x2 filler wood on the hood first and then use 3 screws to drill into the wood to secure the filler from the top. This method finally worked. The original method asked for making the position of the hole and install the screws that are to hang the hood. It is very difficult to allign the holes with the screw because there are very little room for error and also not much clearance. The unit width is 29 15/16" is also too tight for any error of the original cabinet. We have to sand down some part of the cabinet in order to fit the hood.
