Range hood installation problem
I've removed my old range hood because it no longer matches our new appliances and I seem to have discovered a slight problem. The electrical wire comes out of the wall and entered the old range hood on the back left side. Everywhere I go, all the range hoods I find all are set up to have the wire come through the right rear. The electrical wire only comes out of the wall about 9" so it is not long enough to work with a range hood that is wired up on the right side.
I cannot for the life of me find any range hoods (under cabinet mount) that get wired up on the left side. Does anybody know of any or have any suggestions? I'm stumped and I don't want to put the old one back up.
