With lots of help from DH I've now got a hood, a new duct and a new ventilation outlet cover  Grin Simple smoke test shows it catches everything that isn't clearly outside the hood, which would be quite a bit off. On Monday I'll do a "test drive" and see if this is enough or if I should start looking for a stronger fan as well.

Noora, have you checked your torch for leaks? I installed my ventilation and decided to hook up my mid range at the same time, very quickly I noticed a gas smell but the smoke tests came out clear. I checked the connections and the hoses and they were all fine. It was only when I checked the torch and systematically sealed every joint I realised it was leaking out of one of the propane knobs on the torch.

A seal of blu tack and it has been fine ever since.

It is not gas smell (the smell they add to the gas here is quite different from chlorine) and I have checked for leaks Smiley
