To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury when using
your unit, observe the following:
• Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by
qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes
and standards, including fire-rated construction.
• 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.
• When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage
electrical wiring and other hidden utilities.
• Ducted fans must always be vented to the outdoors.
• WARNING!: To reduce the risk of fire, use only metal
ductwork.
• CAUTION!: To reduce 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.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons,
observe the following:
• Use this unit only in the manner for which it is intended. If
you have any questions, contact the manufacturer.
• Before servicing or cleaning unit, switch power off at service
panel and lock service panel to prevent power from being

WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGETOP GREASE FIRE:
1. Never leave surface units unattended at high setting. Boilovers
cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite. Heat oils
slowly on low or medium settings.
2. Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or when
cooking flaming foods. (i.e. Crepes suzette, Cherries jubilee,
Peppercorn beef flambé).
3. Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be
allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
4. 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
rangetop grease fire, observe the following: (Based on
“Kitchen Firesafety Tips,” published by NFPA.)
1. SMOTHER FLAMES with a close fitted 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.
2. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN. You may be burned.
3. DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels a
violent steam explosion will result.
4. Use an extinguisher ONLY if
• You know it is a Class ABC extinguisher, and you
already know how to operate it.
• The fire is small and contained in the area where it
started.
• The fire department is being called.
• You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.
CAUTION
For general ventilating use only. DO NOT use to exhaust
hazardous or explosive materials and vapors.
CAUTION
If the power to the hood is not disconnected during
cleaning, the heat sensor thermostat can cause the blower
to turn on.
CAUTION
Unplug power cords from control panel before cleaning or
servicing hood.
CAUTION
DO NOT place flammable material on warming shelves
when using heat lamps.
CAUTION
All brass special ordered parts are coated with an epoxy
coating. DO NOT use brass cleaners or abrasive cleansers
on the brass option parts.
CAUTION
Do not use a porcelain cleaner or rough abrasive cleaner.
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRICAL SHOCK, OR
INJURY TO PERSONS, RANGEHOODS MUST BE INSTALLED
WITH THE VENTILATORS THAT ARE SPECIFIED ON THEIR
CARTON INDICATING SUITABILITY WITH THIS MODEL.
OTHER VENTILATORS CANNOT BE SUBSTITUTED.

Getting Started
Before Using Hood
Getting Started
Although the hood is cleaned upon completion of the
manufacturing process, you will probably need to clean your
hood again after installation. Wipe the surface of the hood with
a good household cleaner applied with a soft cloth, or stainless
steel polish, depending on the finish of your hood. This will
leave a protective finish on the hood.

natural elements (such as rain) as much as possible.
• Always turn the outdoor hood on to the “HIGH” position
before lighting the grill.
• Keep the grill canopy closed as much as possible when
cooking so smoke is exhausted from the back of the grill. This
allows for optimum performance of the hood.
• During breezy conditions, outdoor hoods may not perform
well.

Unplug power cords from control panel before cleaning or
servicing hood.
As air passes through a baffle filter, grease particles collect
on the stainless steel U-shaped baffle channels and drip
down into the bottom of the filter. Baffle filters are extremely
efficient when compared to mesh filters. The power of the
hood is increased as more air passes through a baffle filter
than with mesh filters, which are usually dirty. Baffle filters are
almost universally required in commercial installations due to
their superior ability to capture grease. The baffle filters
should be examined periodically to assure that all surfaces
and parts are clean. The filters can be washed in a
dishwasher or in a sink with hot, soapy water. Simple periodic
cleaning will ensure maximum filter effectiveness.

• Do not use caustic detergent to clean the filters. An

Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when

Cleaning Mesh Filters
Cleaning Hood Canopy
As air passes through the filter, grease particles collect on the stainless
steel screen inside the filter. The filters should be examined periodically
to assure that all surfaces and parts are clean. This unit is equipped with
an alarm. Once the unit has been in operation for 48 hours, the letters “FILT”
will appear on the display. The filters can then be washed in a dishwasher or
in a sink with hot, soapy water. Simple periodic cleaning will ensure maximum
effectiveness. Do not use caustic detergent to clean the filters. An abrasive or
corrosive cleaner may damage the finish. Do not take the filters apart to clean
them. It is not necessary and will void the filter warranty. Once the filters have
been cleaned and placed back in the hood, the display is canceled by
holding the scroll up (+) and the scroll down (-) buttons for 5 seconds.
Finishes in enamel or stainless steel are highly resistant to
damage or discoloration due to grease, steam, and heat—
provided that reasonable care is given to the equipment. The
following suggestions will help keep your hood looking new.

For general ventilating use only. DO NOT use to exhaust hazardous
or explosive materials and vapors.

1. Do not allow an excessive accumulation of grease. For best
results, you should wipe your hood clean with a cloth dipped in
warm, soapy water. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANSERS,
STEEL WOOL PADS, OR ABRASIVE CLOTHS. DO NOT use
cleansers that contain chlorides; the chlorides in the cleaner
could damage the stainless steel finish. If you need to scrape
stainless steel to remove encrusted materials, first soak the area
with hot towels to loosen the material, then use a wooden or
nylon spatula or scraper. DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or
any other metal tool to scrape stainless steel.
2. Every 3 months give your hood a thorough cleaning. On
painted surfaces, use a new coat of wax. A good wax
cleaner—available at either a grocery or hardware store—will
do both jobs at once. On stainless steel surfaces, use a good
stainless steel cleaner and polish.
If discoloration occurs, you should thoroughly polish the finish
on your hood to renew its gloss and luster and to remove any
grease residue which may have a yellowing effect. Use any
good enamel polish, refrigerator polish, or automotive polish.
CAUTION
Slide filter front over front lip. Push filter
rear up, then slide back over rear lip.
Slide filter front over front lip. Push filter
rear up, then slide back over rear lip.
Maintaining Charcoal Filter (Recirculating Hoods Only)
To replace, remove the baffle/charcoal filter
assembly and slide the charcoal filter out of the
channel and replace with a new one. Do not put
the charcoal filters in the dishwasher.
Replacement filters are available through your local
Viking Range dealer, or you can call the Viking
Online Store at 1-877-834-8222 or visit

Renewing Stainless Steel Finish
Regular cleaning is the best way to assure that your stainless
steel finish stays bright and unscratched. Use lemon oil or
stainless steel polish to coat and protect stainless steel.
CAUTION
All brass special ordered parts are coated with an epoxy
coating. DO NOT use brass cleaners or abrasive cleansers
on the brass option parts.
