hood vent damper

3 posts in this topic

Hi, hope someone can help before it starts to smell around here.

A bird flew down the pipe and got stuck on top of the damper. We were able to open both sides to allow the bird to fly out but it is a stupid bird and would not come out. It is now trying to die and is stuck on top of the damper and is too weak to get out of the way when we try to prop the damper open. How do you get the damper off the hood. I see no screws or pins. Thank you.

Michelle

I do not know anything about vent hoods, but any one that does will need a brand and model number to help you.

You'll have to drop the blower fan motor assembly and push it out from the inside to the outside.  Use a chimney brush to sweep out the debris and droppings from inside the ductwork.
