OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
The fan in the Microshelf
Hood turns on
automatically
to protect the microwave oven
when the temperature inside the hoodreaches
122°F (SO’C). It turns off automatically
when
the temperature falls below 95°F (35°C).
INSTALLATION
REQUIREMENTS
A. Space Requirements
A typical installation can be seen in Figure 1. Study
Figure 1 before proceeding. The Microshelf Hood
requires
an opening
that is 30” wide. It is
recommended that the cabinet above the cooktop
be a maximum of 15” high. This provides adequate
space between
the range cooktop
and the
Microshelf Hood.

Hood is installed
on an
appropriate wall strong enough tosupport this appliance.
NOTE:
The shelf of the Microshelf Hood is designed
to support a Microwave
Oven with a net
weight of up to 75 pounds.
The area used for the installation must be suitable forthe
size, function,
and protection
(from elements) of the
Microshelf Hood.
CAUTION:
When mounting the Microshelf Hood to a
wall, you must locate 2 studs in the wall.
Do not attempt to install the hood if the 2
wall studs are not found.
Be careful when drilling holes into a wall. Electrical wires

B. Electrical Requirements
A 120 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 20 Ampere fused
electrical supply is required (time delay fuse or
circuit
breaker
is recommended).
It is
recommended
that a separate circuit serving only
this appliance be provided.
C. Venting Requirements
For vented installations,
the venting system must
terminate to the outside.
CAUTION:
Do not terminate the vent in an attic or
other enclosed space. This type of installation may
result in a fire.
APPROVED FOR USE WITH WHIRLPOOL
RJM
AND RHM SERIES AND THE RFM 7300-l
MICROWAVE OVENS.
If a vertical venting system is used, using 3%” x 10”
duct, the maximum length allowed is 25 feet. If
elbows are used in the venting system, reduce the
length of 3%” by 10” duct by 24 feet for each elbow
used.
The Microshelf Hood may be centered horizontally
as shown in Figure 2. The maximum length of duct
run horizontally,
using one 3%” x 10” elbow, is one
foot

If the Microshelf
Hood is to be installed
NOTE:
above a freestanding
range, disconnect the power
from the range and move the range out of the
opening in the cabinets. This will allow for more
access to the installation
area.
If installing the Microshelf Hood above a built-in
cooktop or set-in range, lay a protective cover over
the cooktop during the installation.
This may help
prevent damage to the cooktop (in case you drop
something)
and it will prevent dust and dirt from
accumulating
on the cooktop during installation.

Kit RCH3630 must be
installed.
A. Assembling and Installing to Wall
1. Select the area for installation,
making sure
you have an electrical supply available. See the
shaded area in Figure 3. This is the area the
electrical supply must enter.
5. Line the top of the hanging bracket up with the
line drawn on the wall in Figure 3. Move the bracket
to the left or right within the allotted 30”space until
the center line of the 2 studs line up with 4 holes in
the hanging bracket. Neither edge of the bracket
should be closer than l/2” to the side cabinets or the
end of the 30” allotted space. (See Figure 4).

CAUTION:
Due to the amount of weight the

sure the Microshelf Hood is mounted to 2 vertical
wall studs and into the wall covering which must be
at least %” thick sheet rock, with 4 wall anchor
bolts.
2. If the Microshelf Hood is mounted to a wall that
does not meet the above recommendations,
the
weight of the microwave
oven may cause the
Microshelf
Hood to pull away from the wall
resulting in personal injury or property damage.
7. Mark 2 holes on each end of the hanging
bracket. Remove bracket and drill four 7/16” dia.
holes.
8. Insert four hollow wall anchor bolts into the
four 7/16” dia. holes in thesheet rock. Anchor bolts
are provided in installation
pack. Rotate anchor
bolts screws 5-10 revolutions to hold each anchor
bolt in place. These will be completely tightened
later. (See Figure 5).

14. Hang the shelf hood on the hanging bracket.
(See Figure 10). To be sure theshelf hood hanging
angle is completely
engaged
in the hanging
bracket, measure from the top of the shelf hood to
the top of the hanging bracket. This distance
should be l-7/16” on both ends.

side) to fasten the thin duct provided with the
hood to the back wall. See Figure 7.
C. Use 2 #8 x VI” long screws provided with
the unit to fasten the narrow thin duct to the
shelf. See Figure 7.
11. Install four remaining
‘/4” dia. lag bolts
through the hanging bracket and into the two
studs.
Do not overtighten
the lag screws. If
CAUTION:
they are overtightened,
the bracket may pull into
the wall material which will not allow the shelf to
slide into place properly.
D. Next install the transition adaptor to the
thin duct.
This transition adaptor will accept 3%” x 10”
duct.
E. Complete
the 3%” x 10” duct (or
equivalent)
to the outside
using
the
guidelines listed under venting requirements.

Remove all 4 screws from the anchor
bolts.
12. The hole in the bottom of the cabinet (for the
duct provided with the hood) should be cut as
shown in Figure 6 (15%” long by 1%” deep). Hole
must be cut to back wall. Make sure to center the
hole within the 30” allotted space.
