New range hood - duct help


Hello all, hopefully someone has a fix for this. I recently took out a microwave vent combo that was mounted above my stove, my problem is that the new hood I bought to replace with doesn't line up with the duct. The duct is almost right up against the wall, while the louver on the new hood is about 2" from the back of the hood. Pictures should help if this doesn't make sense. Help me out guys!




Looking up from stove.

You'll cut a new opening and either readjust the ductwork or replace it.

New range hood - duct help


Is it possible to adjust the duct over without affecting the roof vent? How would this be done?

Hard to tell you without seeing the situation. If the duct run up to the roof is more then 3 or 4" , you should have enough wiggle room to shift the ducts. But since the shift is so small, you'll probably need to fabricate the transition piece yourself with sheetmetal.
