How bad is it to have 1 cut stud on exterior wall


I was installing a new stove vent and noticed the previous guy cut the stud then didn't even vent it outside!!

I had planned on just using the space already created and cutting through the brick but was wondering how big of issue this is.

It's 1 - 2x6 - with a 6 inch section gone. Master bedroom above. House is 12 years old - no noticeable sag from the initial cut.

Appreciate and thoughts and feed back

It should have been headed off.

Noticeable is the key term. Post a few photos of what you are describing

is 1 cut 2x6 on an exterior wall going to create serious structural issues? I guess that is really hard to say....FOOK

I have no idea what relevance this has. Unless you are trying to compare the weight of a microvave to the weight being transfrred down from upstairs??

to properly address the situation, you should have a header constructed. micro out, header in, micro back in.

I don't think any of the people would endorse leaving as is on a load bearing wall no matter if there is currently sag or not.
