The new cook top required more room below to accommodate the exhaust fan.

First I removed the cabinet shelf that was in the way, using a saw and hammer.

Second, I tried to locate the transition exhaust part but could not identify the part until I found Partselect.com on the net. They had the diagrams showing the parts and placing the order with them was a snap.

Third, the transition exhaust was taped in position with aluminum tape.

fourth, I connected the wiring, with the electricity shut off at the breaker panel, as indicated on the placard attached to the cook top.

Fifth, and most difficult was running the 6 inch diamater exhaust duct to the outside vent. The vent was buried in the far back corner of the cabinets. The duct I used is aluminum and extends out to 8 feet in length. The metal tape was used to connect it to the transition exhaust.

It was a straight forward job with no real problems other than working in close quarters.
