water and detergent solution.
Light brushing can be used to
remove embedded dirt. Rinse,
shake and let it dry before
replacing.
To remove:
Pull down on the center of the
front edge of the filter. The filter
will then slip out of the retaining
tabs on the back.
NEVER OPERATE THE HOOD
WITHOUT THE FILTER IN PLACE.
With careful handling, the metal
filter will last for years. If a new
replacement filter becomes
necessary, order the part from
your dealer. Order genuine GE
part number WB02X8391.
To replace:
Slip the back edge of the filter
into the retaining tabs and push
the front edge up until it snaps
into place.

WB02X10700. Replacement filters
can be ordered from your GE supplier.
If the hood is not vented to the
outside, the air will be recirculated
through a disposable charcoal filter
that helps remove smoke and odors.
The charcoal filter should be
replaced after 6 to 12 months
(depending on hood usage).
Safety Instructions
Charcoal Filter—Recirculating Installations Only
Painted Surfaces (on some models)
NOTE: When cleaning, take care not
to come in contact with filters and
other non-enameled surfaces.
CAUTION: When cleaning the

governing codes and ordinances.
Note to Installer – Be sure to leave these
instructions with the Consumer.
Note to Consumer – Keep these instructions
for future reference.
Skill level – Installation of this appliance requires
basic mechanical and electrical skills.
Completion time – 30 minutes–3 hours
Proper installation is the responsibility of the
installer.
Product failure due to improper installation is not
covered under the Warranty.
Exhaust connection:
The hood exhaust has been designed to mate with
standard 31⁄4″ x 10″ rectangular ducting or 7″ diameter
round ducting.
If a 6″ round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round
transition adaptor must be used*. Do not use less than
a 6″ diameter duct.
Maximum duct length:
For satisfactory air movement, the total duct length
of a 31⁄4″ x 10″ rectangular, 6″ or 7″ diameter round
duct should not exceed 65 equivalent feet. See the
WORKSHEET–CALCULATE TOTAL EQUIVALENT
DUCTWORK LENGTH section.
FOR YOUR SAFETY:
NOTE: It is important that ducting be installed using
the most direct route and with as few elbows as possible.
This ensures clear venting of exhaust and helps prevent
blockages. Also, make sure dampers swing freely and
nothing is blocking the ducts.
WARNING – Before beginning the
installation, 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.
Elbows, transitions, wall and roofcaps, etc.,
present additional resistance to airflow and are
equivalent to a section of straight duct longer than their
actual physical size. When calculating the total duct
length, add the equivalent lengths of all transitions and
adaptors plus the length of all straight duct sections. The
charts on the following pages show you how to calculate
total equivalent ductwork length using the approximate
feet of equivalent length of some typical ducts.
OPTIONAL POWER CORD KIT JXHC1
An optional Power Cord Connection Kit, model
JXHC1, is available at extra cost from your GE
supplier for installation using a standard 3-prong,
grounded wall outlet. Follow the Installation
Instructions packed with the kit to connect
the power cord to the range hood.
* IMPORTANT: If a rectangular-toround transition adaptor is used, the
bottom corners of the damper will
have to be cut to fit, using the tin
snips, in order to allow free
movement of the damper.
Equivalent lengths of duct pieces
are based on actual tests and reflect
requirements for good venting
performance with any hood.

toward the front of the cabinet so you can move the
duct freely when installing the hood. It may also ease
installation by cutting the hole 10 1⁄2″ instead of 10″.

TROUBLESHOOTING CHECKLIST
21 CONNECT WIRING
Connect house black to hood black wire, house
white to hood white wire and house ground under
green ground screw. Securely tighten the strain
relief clamp onto the house wiring.
If the hood seems to be operating at high speed when
the control is not set on high, or if ventilation seems
inadequate, check the following:
❏ Knockouts not removed from hood.
❏ Damper blade not opening.
❏ Reduced airflow because the duct is too small or
the duct length is too long.
❏ The duct is blocked.
❏ Undersized or restrictive wall or roof cap.
Green ground screw
If the hood seems to make excessive noise:
❏ Fan may be hitting the filter. Turn off the fan and
remove the filter. Bend the filter down slightly in the
center (into a dome shape) to allow fan clearance.
Reinstall and adjust as needed.
