Matt Weber of Home Improvement and Repairs selected Hauslane’s UC-PS38 for his new range hood. This range hood was selected based on its professional design, perimeter suction power, steam-cleaning feature, and six fan speed settings.

 

       

      Here’s how Matt simplified the process to make installation a breeze:

      • Use a cabinet jack to support the microwave when removing it
      • Put down a piece of plywood similar in size to the microwave to protect your surfaces
      • Tighten the cabinet jack to support the microwave as you remove it after removing the anchor weights and fasteners
      • Connect the vent duct
      • Make any necessary adjustments to cabinets
      • Drill cord access
      • Assemble the range hood according to the manufacturers instructions
      • You may need blocking to give the cabinet jack an upward extension to support the range hood
      • Raise the hood into position
      • Fasten the range hood with screws and washers
      • For the keyhole slots, use an extension on the driver to drill from below and to fasten them in to save time
      • Place aluminum tape around the vent 

      Matt described the UC-PS38 as having a “sleek stainless design, quiet operation, and plenty of light. Be sure to give his video a watch for a closer look at how to remove a vented microwave and install a range hood.You can also check out our recent DIY guide for more tips.
