I haven't ran across this problem in so so many years that I don't even remember if it is part of the CA building code or not. I have an older home that has a built-in stove/oven, but above it are built-in cabinets, no fan/hood and no vent in the ceiling. Most times in these older homes there will be at least a vent for the stove in the ceiling. And they normally don't have cabinets directly above the stove without a built-in fan/hood. So I have two questions: 1 - Is a built-in stove that is missing a fan/hood, or venting a code violiation? 2 - Are the cabinets directly above the stove without a fan/hood a safety issue? I took a stoll thru the building codes on line but couldn't find anything. Help!
