Manufacturers of kitchen hoods often sell parts for their own products, as do appliance stores such as Sears. Home improvement stores and online retailers such as Amazon.com also sell replacement parts for kitchen hoods.
Bosch, Broan, Electrolux, GE, Jenn-Air, Kenmore, Kitchenaid and Whirlpool are common manufacturers of kitchen hoods. Replacement parts for hoods from these companies are often available through the brand's website as well as through Sears. Sears typically offers the replacement parts both in its stores and online, as do home-improvement stores such as The Home Depot. Independent appliance stores sometimes sell replacement parts as well.
Online retailers such as Amazon.com and eBay often offer replacement parts for kitchen hoods. The parts may be new or used, and sometimes there is a bidding option for discounted pricing.
A kitchen hood has three main parts: a skirt that contains the rising gases, a grease filter to trap airborne grease and a fan for forced ventilation. Kitchen hoods are either ducted to direct air outside or ductless to re-circulate the air back into the kitchen. With ducted hoods, typical replacement parts include the grease filter casings and the filter. Ductless hoods circulate the air through a charcoal filter to remove odors, so charcoal pads are typical replacement parts. Switches and fans can also be replaced.
