Does it have to be hardwired or can you attach a power cord to plug into a standard outlet?
Power cord is not included. So, you can do it either way. In my case, there was already a standard outlet so I installed a cord with a plug end and plugged it in. I could have removed the outlet and hardwired it if I had wanted to, but it is simply up to you the consumer to connect it as you wish.

please explain how it works without an exterior duct to exhaust through. It notes "hidden louvers on top", but that is where it is attached flush to bottom of the cabinet.
Our existing Nutone/Mercury model has vents on the front where the exhaust goes.
It notes non-duct capable, with "conversion built-in", but what does the conversion require as the Installation Guide doesn't describe that.
It notes about charcoal filters for non-duct. Do you have to use the replacement filters with non-duct operation, and typical time frame that the filters last.
Thank you for your question on the model AVSF136SS range hood. The AVSF136SS is designed to be installed underneath a 12 inch deep cabinet. When installed properly the unit can be installed as a ducted or non-ducted unit. For non-ducted installations you need to refer to page 10 of the installation instructions. You need to remove 3 screws holding the recirculation cover plate and remove the plate. You will then have a grille on top of the hood where the air can recirculate back into the room. We recommend using the non-duct charcoal filters to help eliminate odors. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 if you need further assistance.

Damper for the 7' round duct
If I duct via the round opening, how would i install a damper. The 3 1/4 x 10 has a damper in it.
Thank you for your question. When using the 7” round duct, you do not use the 3 ¼ X 10” damper. You will need to use a 7” round damper in-line with your duct work. You can use the BP87 (single part number 97010792) or BP87Q (single part number 97018803) which can be installed in-line with your duct work. For further information, contact Technical Support at 888-336-6151. Either 7" damper can be ordered by contacting Customer Service directly at 888-336-3948 or via our website under the Shop for Parts link.

I’m looking at buying a 36” mantra, but was wondering if there was an option for a back piece?
I’m looking at buying a 36” Mantra but was wondering if there is an option for a back piece since my stove is in a branch of cabinets that are not against the wall. The back of the range hood would be exposed and I wouldn’t care for that
Thank you for your question. We do not make a back piece mounting option for the AVSF136SS. Please contact Technical Support at 888-336-6151 for further assistance.
