INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
CAUTION: MAKE SURE POWER IS SWITCHED OFF AT SERVICE PANEL BEFORE
STARTING INSTALLATION.
Wood Strip
SECTION 1
Preparing the Range Hood
1.
Unpack hood from the carton and confirm that all pieces are present. In addition to the
range hood you should have:
2 - Aluminum Grease Filters (36" models - 3)
2 - 18 Watt GU24 Lamps
Figure 2
1 - 3-1/4" x 10" Damper
1 - 7" Round Damper
4 - #8 Mounting Screws
The thickness of the strips should be the same as the recess of the cabinet and they
should be approximately 2" wide.
3.
Install the strips using appropriate length wood screws (not included). Make sure the
strips line up to the keyhole slots of the range hood.
1 - Instruction/Safety Sheet
2.
10 - Damper Mounting Screws
NOTE: Some hoods may be shipped with a protective plastic adhered to the range hood. It is
recommended to leave this in place during installation to protect the hood from scratching.
Remove when the installation is complete.
SECTION 3
TIP: Use a hair dryer to warm the plastic coating. This will allow the coating to easily release
from the hood.
1.
Lay the hood flat on a table so the underside is facing you. Use a piece of cardboard to
avoid damaging the table or the hood.
3.
Remove the following items from the hood and place in a safe place until needed (Figure 1):
2.
Prepare the Hood for Installation
Choose the type of ducting you will require. This model is equipped to vent either
Vertically or Horizontally through a 3-1/4" x 10" duct or through a 7" round duct. It can
be modified to be ductless (re-circulates the air back into the kitchen) with the addition
of a model CF-09S Charcoal Filter (not included) (Figure 3).
Vertical
Grease filters: Pull on tabs to remove.
Lamp cover: Press in the tabs on the lamp covers and remove. It might be helpful to
place the hood in an upright position to remove the covers so they will easily detach from
the hood once the tabs are depressed.
Damper and Lamp Box: Both the damper assemblies and lamps are contained with the
box located on the inside of the hood. Remove and place in a safe place until needed.
Ductless
Horizontal
Wire compartment cover: Remove the screws holding it in place.

Install the included 18 watt GU24 fluorescent lamps into the lamp holder by lining up
the pins on the lamp base to the socket of the lamp holder and turning the lamp body
clockwise until the lamp snaps into place and is firmly seated in the lamp holder. Install
a 4 watt maximum type C7 (candelabra base) night light (not included) into the side lamp
holder and reinstall the lamp cover.
Figure 4
2b. Ductless - From inside the hood, depress the latches with your fingers before removing
the shutter. Pull down on the tab in front of the fan blade. Bend the shutter at the creased
area and break the top part of the shutter off and discard. Insert the remaining part of the
shutter back into the slot (Figure 4).

If the hood will be installed under cabinets that have a recessed bottom, it will be necessary
to install wood mounting strips (not included) so the hood will mount properly (Figure 2).
2c. 7" Round - Remove the round knockout located on the top of the hood by inserting a screw
driver under the edge and break the tabs holding it in place. Peel back with pliers (Figure 4).

Determine where the electrical service will enter the hood and remove the appropriate
electrical knockout by inserting a screw driver into the slot and rocking back and forth until the
knockout comes loose (Figure 4).
1.
3.
Connect the 1 loose Black wire from the range hood to the Black wire from the supply,
and the 1 loose White wire from the range hood to the White wire of the supply. Connect
the ground wire (green or bare) from the supply to the green ground screw of the hood.
Use approved methods for all connections (Figure 7).
SECTION 4
Installing the Range Hood
CAUTION: MAKE SURE POWER IS SWITCHED OFF AT SERVICE PANEL BEFORE
STARTING INSTALLATION.
Once the proper knockout(s) have been removed, either hold the hood up to the installation
location and mark the locations of the ducting (if applicable), electrical, and mounting holes
or mark the locations by measurement.
2.
Cut appropriate holes for ducting connection (if applicable) and electrical connection in the
wall/cabinet.
3.
For vertical or horizontal ducting, install the appropriate damper assembly to the hood by
placing the assembly over the opening and securing in place with the provided screws
(Figure 5). If using the 3-1/4" x 10" damper, make sure the damper hinge is towards the
front or the top of the hood to ensure the best possible performance.

Install the wire compartment cover using the three screws removed earlier. Make sure
the the 2 screws with the pointed tips are installed through the wire cover and into the
polymetric undercarriage. The blunt tip screw is to be installed to the interior of the wire
compartment. Make sure all wiring is securely contained within the wire compartment
and tighten all screws.
SECTION 6
Ducting
CAUTION: ALL DUCTING MUST COMPLY WITH LOCAL AND NATIONAL
BUILDING CODES.
Figure 5
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, USE ONLY METAL DUCTWORK.
Install an approved wire connector to the electrical knockout of the hood and guide the
electrical cable through the hood, allowing at least 6" of wire for connections and tighten.
1.
4.
Connect the ducting to the hood’s duct collar and damper. Secure in place using tape to
seal all joints (Figure 8).
NOTE: If installing into existing construction and you will not have access to the ductwork
once the hood is in place, make ducting connections at this point. Refer to the Ducting Section
for instructions.
5.
Install the 4 mounting screw at the previously marked locations. Leave approximately 1/8"
clearance. Slide the hood in place through the keyhole slots and align the front of the hood
so that it is flush with the front of the cabinets. Tighten all screws securely (Figure 6).
