I recently fitted a range hood above my electric range. There wasn’t one and I believe that code says there should be. It is not vented but has carbon filters, which I believe to be acceptable.
Here is my question (unless you wish to make a point about the range hood not being vented). Just above and behind my range there is a receptacle. The range hood is being powered from that receptacle by a power cord and plug (supplied with it). The wire runs six inches up the wall to the range hood. Are there any issues with this? I know the best solutioin is to power a range hood from a receptacle installed in a cupboard above the range but I do not have this.
My potential concern is that a cable is essentially rising flush with the wall from behind the top of the range, then up the wall to the range hood.
