Help! Bad mistake - Wide chimney range hood?

February 12, 2019

We just finished our kitchen. Tile backsplash just installed. Last thing was to install range hood. Only to discover that the outlet for the range hood (no microwave above the range) is so off-center that the 8" chimney piece for the hood (Ikea) does not cover it. And not only that but it seems there are no off the shelf, under $4k hoods that come close to covering this mistake. Does anyone know of a stainless range hood with a wide chimney? I need the chimney piece to be at least 15" wide! Most chimney pieces I can find are 8-13" wide max. Oh, and not ducted to the outside, so convertible or ductless. I really really don't want to dig up new tile. Thanks!

    Move the electrical outlet to the correct position shown in your hood’s specifications. Then repair the tile.

    Exactly that is the solution.
