If there was no previous hood to give you existing wiring, that tells me there is also no previous ductwork for venting. If you are running a new vent, you must have access to either an outer wall or an attic above. (If you are planning on one of those recirculating hoods you should save both the cost of the hood and the electrician. in other words they don't do anything but suck the dirty air from above the stove and blow it back in your face). Either way that should give you ample opportunity to wire this thing safely and in a visually acceptable manner. I have seen some pretty strange things in my time, but never anyone run a vent hood on an extension cord. Any half decent electrician can safely get you power... or do you plan to rewire correctly while repairing the damage from the electrical fire?
