The previous owner of my house was apparently a fairly adventurous soul when it came to electric... in the "thrill for danger" sense.
My latest find is on the wiring to my under-cabinet filtered/no vent range hood.
It seems there's just a hole in the wall (my cabs have no backs) with an NM wire going from the wall hole and into a hole drilled into the bottom of the cabinet, which leads into the top of the range hood. See below.
I can see his dilemma, as this appears to be the only hood ever that has no punch-out hole in the back. Still, there's just.... no way this can be up to code. (Though I'd be happy to hear that it is.)
These cabinets get a lot of use so I'd like to do this correctly, I guess via junction box and some conduit. (Pic below.) Am I on the right track? Any recommendations? I live in MA.
