kitchen vent

I need contractors help in installing vent duct on kitchen range.
we have microwaave on the kitchen range. microwave has vent which sucks air and blows back into kitchen. we need to arrange duct to send air outside.
outer wall exist on the left side of the microwave. we need to run the duct through cabinets(max 4 ft) to reach outer wall on the left.
If we do this way , will air from vent go outside efficiently????
please enlighten us about installing goog kitchen vent system?

ok, #1...spell checker is a marvelous tool

#2, you need to check the installation specifications of the vent fan you're installing. It will tell you the diameter vent tube to be used, how many, if any, 90 bends are allowed and if there's a limit to the exhaust tube length. If the fan says it's OK, then by all means would it be possible.
I highly recommend that the installation procedure be followed.
