Installation Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This product requires a three-prong grounded outlet.
The installer must perform a ground continuity check
on the power outlet box before beginning the
installation to insure that the outlet box is properly
grounded. If not properly grounded, or if the outlet
box does not meet electrical requirements noted
(under ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS), a qualified
electrician should be employed to correct any
deficiencies.
You should have the wall receptacle and circuit
checked by a qualified electrician to make sure
the receptacle is properly grounded.
Where a standard two-prong wall receptacle is
encountered, it is very important to have it
replaced with a properly grounded three-prong
wall receptacle, installed by a qualified
electrician.
CAUTION: For personal
safety, remove house fuse or
open circuit breaker before
beginning installation to
avoid severe or fatal shock
injury.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT,
DEFORM OR REMOVE ANY OF THE PRONGS
FROM THE POWER CORD. DO NOT USE WITH
AN EXTENSION CORD.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
Product rating is 120 volts AC, 60 Hertz, 14.5 amps
and 1.6 kilowatts.
This product must be connected to a supply circuit of
the proper voltage and frequency. Wire size must
conform to the requirements of the National Electrical
Code or the prevailing local code for this kilowatt
rating. The power supply cord and plug should be
brought to a separate 20 ampere branch circuit single
grounded outlet. The outlet box should be located in
the cabinet above the microwave oven. The outlet
box and supply circuit should be installed by a
qualified electrician and conform to the National
Electrical Code or the prevailing local code.
CAUTION: For personal safety, the mounting
surface must be capable of supporting the
cabinet load, in addition to the added weight of
this 59 pound product, plus additional oven loads
of up to 50 pounds or a total weight of 109
pounds.
CAUTION: For personal safety, this product
cannot be installed in cabinet arrangements such
as an island or a peninsula. It must be mounted to
BOTH a top cabinet AND a wall.
NOTE: For easier installation and personal
safety, it is recommended that two people install
this product.
IMPORTANT–PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. FOR
PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
PROPERLY GROUNDED TO AVOID SEVERE OR
FATAL SHOCK.

Installation Instructions
Maximum duct length:
NOTE: If you need to install ducts, note that the total
duct length of 3¼" x 10" rectangular or 6" diameter
round duct should not exceed 140 equivalent feet.
Outside ventilation requires a HOOD EXHAUST
DUCT. Read the following carefully.
NOTE: It is important that venting be installed using
the most direct route and with as few elbows as
possible. This ensures clear venting of exhaust and
helps prevent blockages. Also, make sure dampers
swing freely and nothing is blocking the ducts.
For satisfactory air movement, the total duct length of
3¼" x 10" rectangular or 6" diameter round duct
should not exceed 140 equivalent feet.
Elbows, transitions, wall and roof
caps, etc., present additional resistance to
airflow and are equivalent to a section of straight duct
which is longer than their actual physical size. When
calculating the total duct length, add the equivalent
lengths of all transitions and adaptors plus the length
of all straight duct sections. The chart below shows
you how to calculate total equivalent ductwork length
using the approximate feet of equivalent length of
some typical ducts.
Exhaust connection:
The hood exhaust has been designed to mate with a
standard 3¼" x 10" rectangular duct.
If a round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round
transition adaptor must be used. Do not use less
than a 6" diameter duct.
