Grease filter
The efficiency of your hood
depends on a clean filter. Frequency
of cleaning depends on hood use
and the type of cooking you do.
However, the grease filter should
be cleaned at least once a month.
To clean:
Soak and then agitate it in a hot
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.

Replaceable charcoal filter
NOTE: DO NOT rinse, or put charcoal
filters in an automatic dishwasher.
The charcoal filter cannot be cleaned.
It must be replaced. Order filter no.
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).
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.
To replace:
Slip the back edge of the filter into the
retaining tabs and push the front edge
up until it snaps into place.
Do not use a steel-wool pad; it will
scratch the surface.

WARNING –
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.
The venting system must exhaust to the outside.
This hood can be vented vertically through upper cabinets
or horizontally through an outside wall. Ductwork is not
included.
IMPORTANT – Observe all 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 YOUR SAFETY:
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.
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.
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.
Elbows, transitions, wall and roofcaps, etc.,
OPTIONAL POWER CORD KIT JXHC1
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.
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-to-round
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.

12 CUT HOLES
Cut holes at marked locations for duct and electrical
wiring. For the vertical duct, cut out 3/4″ extra 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″.

or
GE Long Life Energy
Smart™ A17
Product Code: 47486

www.gelighting.com
Metal grease filter or charcoal filter
The installation is complete. Turn on power at service
panel, and test for proper operation.
20 FOLLOW ELECTRICAL CODE
Complete the electrical wiring according to National
Electrical Code and local codes.
NOTE: This hood must be permanently grounded.
Connect house wiring (120 VAC) to hood wiring.
TROUBLESHOOTING CHECKLIST
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.
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 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.
Green ground screw
The fan does not work but the lights do:
❏ Switch power off at the 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.
❏ Check the wiring connections. See the CONNECT
WIRING section in these Installation Instructions.
WARNING:
IMPROPER CONNECTION OF
ALUMINUM HOUSE WIRING TO THESE COPPER LEADS
CAN RESULT IN A SERIOUS PROBLEM. USE ONLY
