Yoursafety
and the safety of
others are very important.
We have provided many important
safety messages in this manual
and on your appliance. Always
read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert
symbol.
This symbol alerts you to
potential hazards that can kill or
hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the
safety alert symbol and either the
word "DANGER" or "WARNING".
These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously
injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously
injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you
what the potential hazard is, tell you
how to reduce the chance of injury,
and tell you what can happen if the
instructionsare not followed.
IMPORTANT: Observe all governing
codes and ordinances.
Failure to meet codes and
ordinances could lead to fire or
electrical shock.
Proper installation is your
responsibility.
Make sure you have
everything necessary for correct
installation. It is the responsibility
of the installer to comply with the
installation clearances specified on
the model/serial rating plate.The
model/serial rating plate is located
on the front of the downdraft vent
above the wiring box cover.
Check location where downdraft
vent will be installed.The location
should be away from strong draft
areas, such as windows, doors and
strong heating vents or fans.
Before making countertop cutout,
check that downdraft vent and
cooktop location will clear cabinet
walls, backsplash, and rear wall
studs inside cabinet.
The installation of this downdraft
vent system must conform to the
Manufactured
Home Construction
Safety Standards, Title 24 CFR,
Part 328 (formerly the Federal
Standard for Mobile Home
Construction and Safety, Title 24,
HUD, Part 280) or when such
standard is not applicable, the
Standard for Manufactured
Home
Installation 1982 (Manufactured
Home Sites, Communities
and
Setups) ANSI A225.1/NFPA 501A*,
or latest edition, or with local
codes.
All openings in the wall or floor
where retractable downdraft vent
is to be installed must be sealed.
Electrical ground is required. See
"Electrical requirements:'
page 3.
When installing downdraft vent,
the cabinet drawer will need to be
removed and the drawer front
installed permanently to cabinet.
NOTE: Downdraft vent is installed
directly behind the cooktop. Install
downdraft vent first.
Cabinet construction:
Downdraft
vent is designed for use in a
cabinet with a depth of 24"
(61 cm). Some installations
require a countertop deeper than
25" (63.5 cm). See chart on page 5.
The maximum depth of the
overhead cabinet is 13" (33 cm).
Overhead cabinets installed at
either side of the downdraft vent
must be 18" (45.7 cm) above the
cooking surface.
See cooktop Installation
Instructions before making any
cutouts and for the minimum
distance between the front edge
of the countertop and front edge
of cooktop.The minimum
horizontal distance between the
overhead cabinets is the same as
the width of the installed
downdraft vent.
When installing a 36" (91.4 cm)
retractable downdraft vent with
"Create-A-Cooktop"
modules, the
optional support must be installed
on the front of the downdraft vent.
See installation steps for details.

WARNING -- TO REDUCE THE
RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC
SHOCK, OR INJURY TO
PERSONS, OBSERVE THE
FOLLOWING:
installation work and electrical
wiring must be done by qualified
person(s) in accordance with all
applicable Codes and Standards,
including fire related construction.
Sufficient air is needed for proper
combustion and exhausting of
gases through the flue (chimney)
of fuel burning equipment to
prevent back drafting. 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
of 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.
WARNING --To reduce the risk
of fire, use only metal ductwork.
This unit must be grounded.
This downdraft vent should
be connected directly to the fused
disconnect (or circuit breaker)
through flexible, armored or nonmetallic sheathed, copper cable.
Allow some slack in the cable so
the downdraft vent can be moved
if servicing is ever necessary.
E.,
A U.L.- or C.S.A,-listed, 1/2"
(12.7 mm) conduit connector
must be provided at each end of
the power supply cable (at the
downdraft vent and at the
junction box).
Awiring diagram is located
on the downdraft vent base
above the wiring box cover.

with soap and water. Do Not use
scouring powder or abrasive
solutions.
Filter or filters (depending on
model): Frequently remove and
clean the filters in the retractable
section of the downdraft vent.
This will improve the operating
efficiency of the downdraft vent
system.
1. Remove the filter(s) and clean
them in the dishwasher or in a
hot detergent solution.
Do not use the downdraft vent
when the filter(s) is not in
place.
2. Reinstall the clean filter(s),
making sure that they are
pushed in as far as they will go.
NOTE: Downdraft vent will not
operate if filter(s) is not in proper
position. If the handle(s) is not
fully locked, the vent may retract
