INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Canopy
CAUTION: MAKE SURE POWER IS SWITCHED OFF AT SERVICE PANEL BEFORE
STARTING INSTALLATION.
NOTE : When installing the Liner outdoors, the Air King Professional Liners are approved for
use in covered outdoor kitchens only. Proper duct adapters, ducting, chimneys, roof/wall
caps, etc. must be utilized as called out in the following instructions. Do not install the liner in
an uncovered area directly exposed to the elements.
Screws
SECTION 1
Figure 2
Preparing the Insert
NOTE: If additional support is required, install a 2" x .75" strip of wood between the back of
the canopy (rear wall) and the hood. When installing the wood strip to the back of the canopy,
locate studs in the wall to support the weight of the canopy. Center the wood strip 11.5"
from the bottom of the canopy and attach the strip to at least two studs in the rear wall (do
not fasten the strip to drywall only). Lift unit up into position so that the bottom flanges are in
solid contact with the bottom of the canopy or cabinet. Using wood screws and washers (not
included) secure the hood to the wood strip through the two keyholes in the back of the hood.
Using the included wood mounting screws, secure the unit to the canopy or cabinet by driving
the screws through the holes (Figure 3).
OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL SUPPORT
Unpack hood from the carton and confirm that all pieces are present. In addition to the
range hood you should have:
8 - Screws (LIN34, LIN40 models - 12; LIN46, LIN58 models - 14)
2 - Halogen Bulbs (LIN58 models - 4)
1 - Duct Adapter
1 - Grease Trough
2 - Grease Baffles (LIN24, LIN46, LIN58 models - 3)
2 - Spacers (LIN24 models only)

NOTE: Some hoods may be shipped with a protective plastic adhered to the underside of the
unit. It is recommended to leave this in place during installation to protect it from scratching.
Remove when the installation is complete.

Mounting the Liner
CAUTION: DUE TO THE WEIGHT AND BULK OF THE UNIT, IT IS RECOMMENDED
THAT THREE PEOPLE ARE PRESENT DURING INSTALLATION TO LIFT, HOLD, AND SECURE
THE UNIT IN PLACE.
Determine the type of ducting you will require (Figure 4).

Lift unit up into position so that the bottom flanges are in solid contact with the bottom of
the canopy or cabinet. Using the included wood mounting screws, secure the unit to the
canopy or cabinet by driving the screws through the holes (Figure 2).
Vertical
NOTE: For models using the B300, B500, and B600 blowers, a minimum of 6" diameter outlet
adapter & ducting is required to achieve the proper air flow. The B900 requires a minimum of 8"
diameter adapter and ducting. The B1125 requires a minimum 10" diameter adapter and ducting.
NOTE: When the duct termination is similar to that shown in Figure 4 (passing through the wall
to which the hood is mounted) the installation requires special consideration. Depending upon
where the wall studs are located, it may be necessary to cut one or more of the wall studs and
install a header and footer to transfer the load to the adjacent studs. Additional studs may need
to be framed into the opening to attach dry wall or secure the hood. If this is your situation Air
King recommends that you hire a professional and comply with all applicable codes.

bare) to the ground wire (green) from the hood. Use
approved methods for all connections (Figure 7).
Replace the wire compartment cover and tighten
screws. Make sure all wiring is securely contained
within the wire compartment. If the quick connect
wire connector was removed from the receptacle,
replace. The connector will only fit one way into the
receptacle (Figure 6).
