WARNING To reduce the risk of fire,
use ody metal ductwork.
“ When using your hood...
Never leave surface units unattended at high
settings. Boilover causes smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite and spread if hood is
used. Use surface unit heat settings recommended
by the manufacturer and adequate-size utensils.
* Never use your cooking appliance for warming,
or heating the room. The electrical wiring of your
range hood may not withstand the resulting
excessive heat.
Keep the hood clean and clean grease filter or
replace combination filter as recommended to
maintain good venting and to avoid grease fires.

WARNINGTO REDUCE THE RISK
OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
A. Keep fa, filters and grease laden
surfaces clean.
B. Always tumhood ON when cooking
at high heat.
C. Use high range settings on range only
when necessary. Heat oil slowly on low
to medium setting.
D. Don’t leave range unattended when cooking.
E. Always use cookware and utensils appropriate
for the type and amount of food being prepared.

1. PREPARATION OF WALL CABINET
AND WALL
NOTE: For easier installation make all hood and
vent cutouts in the cabinet and wall before cabinet is
permanently fastened in place. It is recommended that
the power supply be brought into the hood from the wall
below the cabinet as shown in Fig. 1. However, an
optional location is shown in Fig. 2, where the power
supply enters the top of the hood by passing through
the wall cabinet.
A. WALL CABINET WITH RECESSED BOTTOM:
Add the 2 required filler strips as shown in Fig. 3.
B. WALL CABINET WITH FLUSH BOTTOM: In
some cases it may be necessary to provide clearance
for the connection box cover mounting screw which
extends slightly through the top of the hood. Clearance
can be provided, if necessary, by carefully positioning
the hood against the bottom of the cabinet and marking
the screw position; clearance may then be provided
by drilling a 1/4” hole in the cabinet bottom.

2. DUCT INSTALLATION
T@e “B” Models: See Figs. 4 and 9.
The hood exhaust has been designed to mate with
standard 7“ round duct. (A round damper kit may be
ordered. Order GE model number JXDA22.)*
A. If a rectangular duct is desired, a round-to-rectangular
adapter must be used. Install a 4“ minimum length of
7“ round duct between the hood and adapter to obtain
proper operation of the outlet damper.
B. If 6“ round duct is desired, a 7“ to 6“ reducer is required.
Install a 4“ minimum of 7“ round duct between the hood
and reducer to obtain proper operation of the outlet damper.
Type “C” Models: See Figs. 5,6 and 10.
The hood exhaust has been designed to mate with a
standard 3!4” x 10” rectangular duct. If round duct is
desired either of the following methods must be used:
1. Install a 4“ minimum length of rectangular duct
between the hood and adapter to obtain proper
operation of the outlet damper, or
2. Cut off both comers of outlet damper at score lines.
Installation may then be made directly to rectangularto-round adapter.

3. POWER SUPPLY
A. CIRCUIT VOLTAGE: This hood must be connected
to a supply circuit of the proper voltage and frequency
as specified on the rating plate. Wire size must
conform to the requirements of the National Electrical
Code or the prevailing local code for hoods of this
rating. The rating plate is located on the rear wall
of the hood.
B. FUSE RATING: 15 amPS.
C. Unless otherwise specified by local codes, bring
a 15 amp 2 wire circuit with ground to the area of
the power supply connection box.
D. USE OF OPTIONAL TOP POWER SUPPLY:
The power supply can be attached through the top
knockout if desired, but only the top or back knockout
shall be opened (See Figs. 8, 9 and 10).

4. HOOD INSTALLATION
A. MECHANICAL
NOTE: When possible, it is more convenient to mount
and wire the hood before the base cabinet is put in place.
1. Take out 1 screw and remove the power supply
connection box cover located on the underside
of the hood (see Fig. 14). (Models: JV322, JV324,
and JV624)
2. To locate the 4 mounting holes, position the hood
carefully against the bottom of the wall cabinet and
mark the screw positions through the keyhole slots in
the hood. Drill 3/32” pilot holes for the mounting
screws in the small end of the keyhole.
3. Partially drive the 4 mounting screws so that the
heads of the screws extend 1/2” below the bottom of
the cabinet. Raise the hood against the bottom of the
cabinet, making sure that the heads of the mounting
screws protrude through the hole section of the
keyhole slots as shown in Fig. 11. Before tightening
the mounting screws, attach the power supply cable
to the hood. Then push the hood back against the
wall and tighten the mounting screws.
