A: Hi Lyndsey, Thank you for your question on model BCSQ130SS. This unit is convertible because of the multiple applications this hood is compatible with. You can duct the unit horizontally or vertically or purchase non-duct filters and install in recirculation applications. This model is designed to be hard wired but is compatible with the HCK44 hood cord kit if you need to convert for plug-in installation.
A: I'm thinking "convertible" means it can circulate air through the filter and back into the kitchen, or made to send the filtered air through a chute outside. That's what I have. I removed the old vent and wired it to the same wiring harness the old one had.
A: No, it only contains the damper for the rectangular duct. You would need to purchase a round damper separately.
A: I installed into rectangle duct, and it did have the damper for that, which I did use, but I do not think it had a damper for round. However I don't trust my own memory, that was way over a year ago and I don't remember what I had for breakfast today.
A: Hi Eddie, Thank you for your question on the BCSQ130SS range hood. This 7" round damper is not included with the purchase of this hood and should be purchased separately if using 7" round ducting. Either of these two 7" round dampers are compatible; 97010792 or 97018803.
A: Hard wired
A: This hood is hard wired. For me it works great, I do not like smells lingering in the house.
A: This unit is hard wired. It is a very good unit, good exhast and a good set of lights.
