• This hood may be vented vertically through upper
cabinets, soffit or ceiling. A duct transition piece is
supplied for vertical exhaust. Use locally supplied
elbows to vent horizontally through the rear wall.
See page 13.
• Determine the exact location of the vent hood.
• Plan the route for venting exhaust to the outdoors.
• Use the shortest and straightest duct route possible.
For satisfactory performance, duct run should not
exceed 100 ft. equivalent length for any duct
configurations.
• Refer to “Duct Fittings” chart to compute the maximum
permissible length for duct runs to the outdoors.
• Use metal ductwork only.
• A transition piece for 7″ round duct is supplied. Use
7″ round duct or you may use 3-1/4″ x 12 ″ rectangular.
• Install a wall cap or roof cap with damper at the
exterior opening. Order the wall or roof cap and
any transition needed in advance.

Troubleshooting Tips
Save time and money! Review the charts on the following
pages first and you may not need to call for service.
Problem
Possible Causes
What To Do
Fan does not operate
when the switch is on
A fuse may be blown or a
circuit breaker tripped.
• Replace fuse or reset circuit breaker.
The blower connector is loose
or not plugged into its mating
connector.
•Disconnect power to the unit. Remove the filters
and look up at the blower. If the blower connector
plug is loose or you see the connector dangling,
the installer failed to plug it in securely. Although it
is a blind connection, it is easy to plug in. See the
Installation Instructions in this manual for the plug
location and how to plug the connector in.
Excessively soiled filters.
•Remove the filters, clean if necessary and replace
them. If cleaning and replacing the filters does not
correct the problem, call for service.
Fan fails to circulate air
or moves air slower than
