Important Safety Instructions
What you need to know about safety instructions
Warning and Important Instructions appearing in this guide are not meant to cover all possible conditions
and situations that may occur. Common sense, caution and care must be exercised when installing,
maintaining or operating an appliance.
ALWAYS contact your dealer, distributor, service agent or manufacturer about problems or conditions
you do not understand.
Recognize Safety Symbols, Words, Labels
WARNING — Hazards or unsafe practices
which COULD result in severe personal injury
or death.
CAUTION — Hazards or unsafe practices which
COULD result in minor personal injury.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC
SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE
THE FOLLOWING:
• Installation work and electrical wiring must be
done by a qualified person(s) in accordance
with all applicable codes and standards,
including fire-rated construction codes and
standards.
• Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion
and exhausting of gases through the flue
(chimney) of fuel burning equipment to prevent
backdrafting. Follow the heating equipment
manufacturer’s guideline and safety standards
such as those published by the National
Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the
American Society for Heating, Refrigeration
and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and
the local code authorities.
• When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do
not damage electrical wiring and other hidden
utilities.
• Ducted fans must always be vented to the
outdoors.
• Use this unit only in the manner intended by the
manufacturer. If you have questions, contact
the manufacturer.
• Before servicing or cleaning unit, switch
power off at service panel and lock the service
disconnecting means to prevent power from
being switched on accidentally. When the
service disconnecting means cannot be locked,
securely fasten a prominent warning device,
such as a tag, to the service panel.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC
SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE
THE FOLLOWING (continued):
• Blower must not be installed in a ceiling
thermally insulated to a value greater than R40.
• Blower must not be installed in furnace
ductwork.
• To reduce the risk of fire, use only metal
ductwork.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP
GREASE FIRE:
• Never leave surface units unattended at high
settings. Boilovers`cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite. Heat oils slowly on
low or medium settings.
• Always turn hood ON when cooking at high
heat or when cooking flaming foods.
• Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease
should not be allowed to accumulate on fan or
filter.
• Use proper pan size. Always use cookware
appropriate for the size of the surface element.

Important Safety Instructions
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO
PERSONS IN THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP
GREASE FIRE, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING*:
• SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid,
cookie sheet, or metal tray, then turn off
the burner. BE CAREFUL TO PREVENT
BURNS. If the flames do not go out
immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT.
• NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - You may
be burned.
• DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths
or towels - a violent steam explosion will result.
• Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
A. You know you have a Class ABC
extinguisher, and you already know how to
operate it.
B. The fire is small and contained in the area
where it started.
C. The fire department is being called.
D. You can fight the fire with your back to an
exit.
* Based on “Kitchen Firesafety Tips” published by
NFPA.
• For general ventilating use only. Do not use to
exhaust hazardous or explosive materials and
vapors.
• To reduce risk of fire and to properly exhaust
air, be sure to duct air outside. Do not vent
exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings
or into attics, crawl spaces or garages.
• This blower assembly is approved for use with
the following Electrolux Telescoping Downdraft
Systems: EI30DD10KSA, EI36DD10KSA,
FH30DD50MSA and FH36DD50MSA only.
Use of this blower assembly with any other
product or in any other configuration is
hazardous and voids the product warranty.
NOTE
• Consult a licensed ventilation contractor or
qualified technician for proper installation of
exhaust ducting.
• Locate the cooking area for minimum cross
drafts - away from doors and windows, when
possible.
• Ducts must be of adequate size and duct runs
should be as short and straight as possible.
Where turns are necessary, keep turning radius
as large and smooth as possible.
• The ducting must be air tight. Use a minimum
of 2 sheet metal screws at every duct joint.
Then, seal the duct joints with a high quality
duct tape.
• In duct runs less than 10 equivalent straight
feet, the remote blower may interfere with the
cooktop burner performance due to the high
volume of air moved. An adjustable damper
(not included) should be installed in the
ducting system. The damper can be adjusted
so that proper ventilation and cooktop burner
performance is achieved.
• Installation of duct work should be carefully
planned if it is to go under a concrete slab floor.
The duct trench should be boxed to prevent
collapse from the wet cement. Be sure to allow
room to run the electrical wiring and conduit.

Planning
Installation Planning
Ductwork
A qualified technician must complete the installation
of this appliance.
Carefully check the location where the remote blower
is to be installed. The remote blower should be placed
for convenient access. Make certain that electrical
power can be provided in the selected location.
Use galvanized or aluminum duct in 8” / 10” round or
3¼”x14” / 4”x14” / 4¾”x14” size, or a combination of
both. PVC duct should be used if installing under a
poured concrete slab. Use the shortest and straightest
duct run possible.
Duct Tape Over
Seam and Screw
The Remote Blower can be installed in various
locations. These Installation Instructions will cover
some of the possibilities.

NOTE
DO NOT mount the blower unit by the cover, or by
using any plumbing straps, or by any other method
than fastening with the lag bolts into solid structural
support members.
Local building codes must be followed in specifying
approved type and specification of ALL duct used.
Always use an appropriate roof or wall cap with
damper.
IMPORTANT
When mounting the unit, do not warp or bend
the housing, or mount in such a manner that the
connected ductwork causes the housing to flex.
Verify that the blower wheel spins freely.
When mounting the main blower housing, be sure
to fully engage the inlet collar of the blower with the
round duct inlet from the downdraft ventilation unit.
Secure the outlet to the exhaust duct.
Make sure that there is an appropriate damper
installed on the discharge ducting, per local code or
national building code, to prevent backflow of air.
All ductworks must be as installed as per local
codes.
To reduce risk of fire and to properly exhaust
air, be sure to duct air outside – Do not vent
exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings
or into attics, crawl spaces, or garages.

DO NOT attach the Main Blower Housing directly
to wall board, ceiling panels, or other non-structural
materials. Refer to the section drawings on the
following pages to determine the proper mounting
orientation for the Main Blower Housing.
Mount Main Housing
The housing is designed to mount to joist or studs
on 16” centers. When mounting the Main blower
Housing, the (4) lag bolts must be attached to joists,

Mount Main Housing to Structure
When mounting the Main Blower Housing, the (4)
lag bolts must be attached to joists or studs, or
other structural members. When mounting the main
blower housing between floor joists or walls studs,
it is necessary to space the blower housing off the
floor or wall using a minimum 2x4 wood spacer. The
wood spacers should be properly secured to the joists
or studs. DO NOT secure the wood spacers to the
sub-floor or wall materials.
When mounting the main blower housing, be sure
to fully engage the inlet collar of the blower with the
round duct inlet from the downdraft ventilation unit.
Secure the outlet to the exhaust duct.
DO NOT mount the main blower housing directly to
sub-flooring or wall materials, this will not support
the remote blower housing correctly.
Before making any electrical connections, verify
that the blower wheel spins freely.
All duct connections should be sealed with duct tape
and secured with screws.
Connect the Romex cable from the downdraft
ventilation unit to the main blower housing.
Make the required electrical connections according
to the attached wiring diagram.
When mounting the unit, do not warp or bend
the housing, or mount in such a manner that the
connected ductwork causes the housing to flex.
