Ducting above microwave vent not aligned


Hi All,

I'm having a hard time connecting the blower from my microwave to the ducting already in place. If you look at the picture, there is a slight offset between the hood adapter and the duct pipe coming out of the roof. There is also not enough space for one of those adjustable elbows. I dont want to use the flexible stuff, because I worry about meeting code. Any advice?

Buy a centered straight boot, will probably line up then.

The offset is actually sideways. I.e. the duct dropping from the roof is to the left of the center of the microwave receiver. The problem is utlimately that the ducting wasnt installed on the centerline. Not sure if your suggestion will work.
