What's Wrong?

So today's tip involves a kitchen remodel in a 80's vintage tract home in Rowland Heights, CA. The remodel was not permitted of course.

The picture is of the interior view of the cabinet above the range hood exhaust fan system? How many issues do you see?

The exhaust vent must be smooth wall material, the existing use of "Corrugated" material is not acceptable as grease/debris can collect and create a fire safety issue. We're also missing an outlet cover and there is an open/exposed 120v pig tail wiring splice to the right of the vent, also unsafe.

Remember, always use licensed contractors when working on your property, pull those permits when required and when in doubt, error on the side of safety.
