Hi,

My Kenmore range vent hood vents outside through a wall duct, but the outdoor damper cover gets quite noisy when it's windy outdoors.

Can I replace this with any kind of grille or damper cover? Or are there special considerations for ranges?

Thanks,

Kelly

Hi,

Model#?

**My Kenmore range vent hood**

The fan is built into the range or it is a hood over the range?

**the outdoor damper cover gets quite noisy when it's windy outdoors.**

My hood has a foam strip ( peel and stick kind ) on the edge of the flapper to prevent those bang/bang/bang noises when the wind blows against it.

Have seen some spring loaded vent hoods as well that may help.

**Can I replace this with any kind of grille**

A grill might let rain/snow ring inside the vent :(
