If you have a hood without a vent connection, it most likely uses a carbon filter. Carbon filters are disposable and need replacing from time to time. It’s recommended that carbon filters be replaced every 6 months. If you cook a lot or do a lot of frying, you may need to change your carbon filter every 3 to 4 months.
Follow the instructions in your user manual on how to remove and replace your hood’s carbon filter. If you’re having trouble finding your manual, download it here using your product’s model number.
