I recently removed a bank of cabinets overtop

my kitchen island and purchased a canopy range hood to replace the old built in one. The new hood uses 6" ducting but the existing duct to the outside is 4". Can I use a reducer or do I have to replace all of the existing ducting?

What does the hood installation instructions say?

Depending on the length of venting, number of elbows in it and the specifications of the hood being installed, that may not allow the hood to function adequately. I would think the hood's instructions should state its minimum venting requirements.

The new hood is an Air King and the instructions ar very vague, at least to me they are.http://www.airkinglimited.com/PDF%20Spec%20Sheets/AlicanteSS.pdf

The existing ducting is a straight run of about

12 feet to the roof.

** 12 feet to the roof. **

I wouldn't think that should be a problem but I agree, the installation instruction don't look like much help unless you can calculate the static air pressure. It might be a good idea to contact Air King directly and ask to be sure.
