Read all instructions before installing or using range hood.
Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If
you have questions, contact the manufacturer.
Before servicing or cleaning the 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.
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 for Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers
(ASHRAE), and the local code authorities.
CAUTION: FOR GENERAL VENTILATING USE ONLY. DO NOT USE
TO EXHAUST HAZARDOUS OR EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS AND VAPORS.
6.
When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage electrical
wiring and other hidden utilities.
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE 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.
7.
8.
This unit must be grounded.
To avoid motor bearing damage and noisy and/or unbalanced
impellers, keep drywall spray, construction dust, etc. off power unit.
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
flambéing food (ie. Crepes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn
Beef Flambé).
c) Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be allowed
to accumulate on fan filter.
d) Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate for the
size of the surface element.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN
THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
a) SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid, cookie sheet, or
metal tray, then turn off burner. BE CAREFUL TO PREVENT
BURNS. If the flames do not go out immediately, EVACUATE
AND CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
b) NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - You may be burned.
c) DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels - a
violent steam explosion will result.
d) Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
I. You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you already
know how to operate it.
II. The fire is small and contained in the area where it started.
III. The fire department is being called.
IV. You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, USE ONLY METAL
DUCTWORK.

Install a 60 watt maximum type A19 bulb and reinstall the lamp cover.
Prepare the location for Hood Support
1. 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).
Installing the Range Hood
1. 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. 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.
4. 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 4).
