IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK OR INJURY TO
PERSONS, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
A. Use this unit only in the manner intended
by the manufacturer. If you have questions,
contact the manufacturer.
B. Before servicing or cleaning 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.
C. Do not use this unit with any solid-state speed
control device.
D. This unit must be grounded.
CAUTION: FOR GENERAL
VENTILATING USE ONLY. DO NOT USE
TO EXHAUST HAZARDOUS OR EXPLOSIVE
MATERIALS AND VAPORS.
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 the
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:
1. You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher,
and you already know how to operate it.
2. The fire is small and contained in the area
where it started.
3. The fire department is being called.
4. You can fight the fire with your back to
an exit.
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
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 (i.e. Crepes
Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef
Flambé).
C. Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should
not be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
D. Use proper pan size. Always use cookware
appropriate for the size of the surface element.
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK OR INJURY TO
PERSONS, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
A. Installation work and electrical wiring must be
done by qualified person(s) in accordance with
all applicable codes and standards, including
fire-related construction.
B. 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.
C. When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling,
do not damage electrical wiring and other
hidden utilities.
D. Ducted fans must always be vented to the
outdoors.
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF FIRE, USE ONLY METAL DUCTWORK.
• Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your hood unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other
servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician.
*Based on “Kitchen Firesafety Tips” published
by NFPA.

Care and Cleaning
Professional Island Range Hood
Baffle grease
filters and
drip trays
Island hood models have reusable metal grease
baffles and drip trays.
The metal baffles channel grease released by
foods on the cooktop into the drip trays. The
baffles also help prevent flaming foods on the
cooktop from damaging the inside of the hood.
For this reason, the baffles must ALWAYS be in
place when the hood is used. The grease baffles
and drip trays should be cleaned once a month,
or as needed.
To clean the grease baffles and drip trays,
drain and wipe all excess grease with a dry
paper towel. Soak them and then swish them
around in hot water and detergent. Don’t use
ammonia or ammonia products because they
will darken the metal. Do not use abrasives or
oven cleaners. Rinse, shake and let them dry
before replacing. They may also be cleaned
in an automatic dishwasher.
To remove:
Grasp both baffle knobs on each filter and
pull them up, forward and out. Grasp the
drip tray and carefully lift it up and out of
the hood track.

Drip Tray Replacement
To replace the drip trays:
1. Place and seat the drip tray into the
hood track.
2. Slide them left or right until all trays are
side-by-side in place in the track.
To replace the baffles:
1. Hold the baffle at the bottom by one of
the knobs.

• A fuse may be blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Replace the fuse

THE BLOWER DOES
NOT WORK BUT
THE LIGHTS DO
• The blower motor wire harness was not connected or was not
connected properly by the installer/electrician/builder to its mating
connector located inside the hood on the top surface, to the left of
the blower assembly.
1. 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.
2. Remove the filters and locate the blower wire harness connector.
Is it plugged into its mating connector?
3. If no, plug the blower motor connector into its mating connector
on the top of the hood. Switch the power back on. Check to see
if the fan now works.
4. If no, check the circuit breaker/fuse. If it is blown/tripped,
replace/reset it. Does the blower work now? If no, call GE
for service.
THE BLOWER FAILS
• Many factors could be the root cause for reduced air-flow.
TO EXHAUST THE
1. Installation could be the problem: Your hood was designed to
SMOKE/STEAM/
meet specific ducting requirements. Refer to the Installation
ODORS ADEQUATELY
Instructions or if you do not have them, go to ge.com.
If your duct length exceeds the manufacturer’s requirements,
hood performance will suffer. Air-flow will also be reduced if the
house duct work is too small or there are too many elbows in the
system. Contact your installer or builder.
2. Obstruction in duct work could be the problem: Make sure
nothing is blocking the vent (bird nests or kinks in the duct work).
3. Damper blade may not be opening. Make sure the tape is removed
from the damper blades and that it swings open freely.
4. Damper blade on Wall or Roof Cap may not be opening. Contact
your builder so they can make sure the damper swings open freely.
5. Dirty filters/baffles—make sure filters (and all hood surfaces) are
kept clean of grease and dirt.
