Important Safety Instructions
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP
GREASE FIRE:
a) Never leave surface units unattended at
high settings. Boil-overs cause smoking
and greasy spill-overs that may ignite. Heat
oils slowly on low or medium settings.
b) Always turn blower ON when cooking
at high heat or when flambeing food
(i.e. Crepes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee,
Peppercorn Beef Flambe’).
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 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 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

5.
CAUTION:
For General Ventilating Use Only. Do Not
Use To Exhaust Hazardous Or Explosive
Materials And Vapors.
Begin by ensuring proper installation
and grounding of the unit by a qualified
technician. Have the installer show you
where the fuse box or circuit breaker panel
is located so that you know how and where
to turn off power.
Always be certain that nothing will interfere
with the vent intake.
Use the vent system for its intended
purpose only as outlined in this manual.
Clean the filters and all grease-laden
surfaces often to prevent grease fires and
maintain performance.
If the cooktop and vent hood are near
a window, use an appropriate window
treatment. Avoid long drapes or other
window coverings that could blow over the
cooktop and vent hood, resulting in a fire
hazard.
Always run the blower whenever a cooktop
is operating.
6.
7.
Never operate the IVS without the filters in
place.
Do not operate the blower if a flame or
flare-up develops. In the event of a flame,
immediately turn off the blower. Smother
the flame or use an appropriate class dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
Never leave the appliance unattended
when using high heat settings. Boil-overs
and greasy spills may smoke and/or ignite.
Do not leave children alone or unattended
in the area where the cooktop and hood
are in use. Never allow children to sit or
stand on an appliance. Do not let children
play with a cooktop or vent hood.
CAUTION: Do not store items of interest
to children above or at the back of the
cooktop or vent, as they could climb on the
appliance to reach items and be injured.
Do not repair or replace any part of the
IVS unless specifically recommended
in literature accompanying it. All service
should be referred to a qualified technician.
Do not use water on grease fires. A violent
steam explosion may result. Also, avoid
using wet pot holders, sponges or clothes,
as steam burn may occur.
If you received a damaged product,
immediately contact your dealer or builder.
Do not install or use a damaged product.

Operating Controls
Care and Cleaning
Your Dacor IVS has two knobs that control the
halogen lights and the exhaust blower. Turning
the knobs clockwise will turn on the lights and
the blower. When turning the lights or blower off,
turn the knob counter-clockwise until it clicks.
Blower Knob: The further clockwise you turn
the knob the faster the blower runs.
Light Knob: The further clockwise you turn the
knob the brighter the light. Turn the knob until
you reach the desired light level.

Light Knob
OPERATING TIPS:
1. Activate the blower a few minutes before
starting to cook to establish an airflow
pattern in the room.
2. Adjust the fan speed according to the
volume and weight of the cooking exhaust.
3. Always activate the blower whenever using
the cooking appliance.
4. Eliminate air currents in the hood’s vicinity
by shutting nearby windows and doors,
turning off ceiling fans and closing adjacent
heating and air conditioning outlets.
5. Place your largest pans, skillets and
stock [pots on the rear burners whenever
possible.
Proper cleaning is necessary to maintain
performance and appearance, while also
ensuring safe operation. The frequency of
cleaning should be adjusted according to the
type and amount of cooking. Best results will
be achieved by cleaning soiled components as
soon as possible.
The filters must be cleaned regularly. Remove
one filter at a time, grasp the filter handle and
gently push back and pull the front down.
The filters may be cleaned by hand washing in
hot water with a mild detergent solution or by
placing them in an automatic dishwasher. Dry
the filters completely before using them again.
STAINLESS STEEL, BRASS & CHROME
SURFACES should be cleaned with a solution
of mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and
dry with a soft lint-free cloth.
CAUTION: If commercially available stainless
steel cleaners are used, it is important to read
the labels for chlorine compounds. Chlorine is
a corrosive substance. If these compounds are
present, rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft
lint-free cloth.
Follow manufacturer’s instructions for
application of polish.
Always wipe stainless steel surfaces with the
grain. Never wipe across the grain.
After cleaning, reinstall the filters carefully.
WARNING:
Do not operate the IVS without the filters in
place or with dirty, grease-laden filters.
Energy Saving Tips
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Do not operate the blower at a speed that
is higher than necessary to remove the
cooking exhaust. Running at excessive
speeds removes more air from the inside of
the house that must be replaced by outside
air. This may be especially costly when the
housing air conditioning or heating system
is in operation.
Clean filters and grease-laden surfaces
often to improve efficiency.
Turn off the blower as soon as all cooking
smoke and odors have been eliminated.
Always use lids on cookware to retain heat
and moisture.
Minimize the amount of liquid used to cook
food.
Select cookware of the proper size,
material and construction for the cooking
task being performed.

Changing the Light Bulb
The suction cup, part number 62408, supplied
with the IVS, is designed to assist in the removal
and replacement of the halogen light bulbs,
should they burn out. To remove a bulb, simply
press the suction cup onto the face of the bulb
and unscrew in a counter-clockwise direction (as
you are facing the bulb). To install the new bulb,
start the new bulb in the socket in a clockwise
direction by turning a few times by hand, then
attach the suction cup to the face of the bulb
and complete the installation. Keep the suction
cup in a safe place for future maintenance.
For replacement lamps, contact your
Dacor parts distributor and order part number
62351.
