This symbol alerts you to
situations that may cause
bodily injury or property
damage.
INTENDED FOR DOMESTIC COOKING
ONLY
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC
SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE
FOLLOWING:
1. Use this unit only in the manner intended by the
manufacturer. If you have questions, contact the
manufacturer at the address or telephone number
listed in the warranty.
2. Before servicing or cleaning unit, switch power off
at service panel and lock service panel 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.
3. 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.
4. 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 guide-
lines 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.
5. When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not
damage electrical wiring and other hidden utilities.
6. Ducted fans must always be vented to the outdoors.
7. Do not use this unit with any separate solid-state
speed control device.
8. To reduce the risk of fire, use only metal ductwork.
9. This unit must be grounded.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP GREASE
FIRE:
A. 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.
B. Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or
when flambeing food (i.e. Crepes Suzette, Cherries
Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambe’).
C. Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
D. Use proper pan size. Always use cookware
appropriate for the size of the surface element.
Safety
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS
IN THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE,
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:*
1. 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.
2. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - You may be
burned.
3. DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or
towels - violent steam explosion will result.
4. 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 Fire Safety Tips” published
by NFPA.
6. Your hood motor has a thermal overload which will
automatically shut off the motor if it becomes overheated. The motor will restart when it cools down.
If the motor continues to shut off and restart, have
the hood serviced.
7. For best capture of cooking impurities, the bottom
of the hood should be a minimum of 24" and a
maximum of 30" above the cooking surface.
8. Two installers are recommended because of the
large size and weight of this hood.
9. This product is equipped with a thermostat which
may start blower automatically. To reduce the risk
of injury and to prevent power from being switched
on accidentally, switch power off at service panel
and lock or tag service panel.
10. Please read specification label on product for
further information and requirements.

grounding wire with a grounding plug.
The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly
installed and grounded.
Improper grounding can result in a risk of
electric shock.
Consult a qualified electrician if the grounding
instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt
exists as to whether the appliance is properly
grounded.
Do not use an extension cord.
If the power supply cord is too short, have a qualified
electrician install an outlet near the appliance.
Set the electrical power supply within the space covered
by the decorative flues.
Position the power socket at a maximum distance of
33-7/16” (85 cm) from where the lead exits from the
hood (see illustration alongside).
Make sure this does not interfere with the bracket
fastening area or with the decorative flue (where the flue
touches the wall).
Fit the plug into the power socket.

Maintenance
Proper maintenance of the Range Hood will assure proper performance of the unit.
Grease filters
Hood cleaning
The grease filters should be cleaned when the filter
reset switch will be illuminated.
Use a warm detergent solution. Grease filters are
dishwasher safe.
Stainless steel is one of the easiest materials to keep
clean. Occasional care will help preserve its fine
appearance.
See “INSTALL FILTERS” section for removal and
installation instructions.
Once the grease filters are cleaned and installed, press
in and hold the “filter reset switch” for approximately 3
seconds.
Non-Ducted Recirculation
filters
The non-ducted recirculation filter should be changed
when the filter reset switch will be illuminated and blink.
See “INSTALL FILTERS” section for removal and
installation instructions.
Once the new charcoal filter is installed, press in and
hold the “filter reset switch” for approximately 3
seconds.
Cleaning tips:
O Hot water with soap or detergent is all that is usually needed.
O Follow all cleaning by rinsing with clear water. Wipe
dry with a clean, soft cloth to avoid water marks.
O For discolorations or deposits that persist, use a
non-scratching household cleanser or stainless steel
polishing powder with a little water and a soft cloth.
O For stubborn cases, use a plastic scouring pad or
soft bristle brush together with cleanser and water.
Rub lightly in direction of polishing lines or "grain"
of the stainless finish. Avoid using too much
pressure which may mar the surface.
O DO NOT allow deposits to remain for long periods
of time.
O DO NOT use ordinary steel wool or steel brushes.
Small bits of steel may adhere to the surface causing
rust.
O DO NOT allow salt solutions, disinfectants,
bleaches, or cleaning compounds to remain in
contact with stainless steel for extended periods.
Many of these compounds contain chemicals which
may be harmful. Rinse with water after exposure
and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Painted surfaces should be cleaned with warm water
and mild detergent only.
