TO EXHAUST HAZARDOUS OR EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS OR VAPORS.
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 the unit, switch power off
at service panel and lock service panel 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. Installation Work and Electrical Wiring Must Be Done
By Qualified Person(s) In Accordance With All Applicable Codes & Standards, Including Fire-rated Construction.
D. 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 manufacturers guideline and
safety standards such as those published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the American Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the local code authorities.
E. When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage electrical wiring and other hidden utilities.
F. Ducted systems must always be vented to the outdoors.
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, ceilings, attics, crawl spaces, or
garages.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, USE ONLY METAL
DUCT WORK.
Install this hood in accordance with all requirements specified.
To Reduce The Risk Of Fire Or Electric Shock, Do Not
Use This Hood With Any External Solid State Speed
Control Device.

Risk Of Injury Disconnect From Power Supply Before
Servicing.
This unit is equpeed with integral disconnecting switch
located inside the blower housing
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 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.
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 other metal tray, then turn off the gas burner
or the electric element. 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.
OPERATION
a. Always leave safety grills and filters in place. Without
these components, operating blowers could catch onto hair,
fingers and loose clothing.

Installing the hood
Installing pr
eparation
preparation
• The vent hood should be on site before final
framing and wall finishing. This will help to
accurately locate the duct work and electrical
service.
• Installation will be easier if the vent hood is
installed before the cook-top and countertop are
installed.
Ductwork and wiring locations:
• 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’ equivalent length for any duct
configurations.
Ductwork installation guidelines
• Refer to “Ductwork
guidelines” chart
to compute the maximum permissible length for
duct runs to the outdoors.
Ductwork installation guidelines
For safety reasons, ducting should vent directly
outdoors (not into an attic, underneath the house,
into the garage or into any enclosed space).
Keep duct runs as short and straight as possible.
Duct fittings (elbows and transitions) reduce air
flow efficiency.
Back to back elbows and „S“ turns give very poor
delivery and are not recommended.
A short straight length of duct at the inlet of the
remote blower gives the best delivery.
Transition to duct from the integral blower or
remote duct transition as close to the downdraft
as is pos-sible.
In order of preference, use
1st. 10" round duct
2nd. 8" round duct
3rd. 3-1/4" x 14" duct
4th. 7" round duct
5th. 3-1/4" x l0" duct
6th. 6" round duct
The use of flexible metal round duct should only
be used when no other duct fitting exists. Limit
use to short lengths and do not crush when
making corners.
• Install a wall cap with damper or roof cap at the
exterior opening. Order the wall or roof cap and
any transition needed in advance.
• Use 8" round metal ductwork only.
Removing the packaging
Remove the carton carefully. Wear gloves to protect
against sharp edges.
Remove the protective film covering the product
before putting into operation.

Continuous use of the fan system while cooking helps keep the kitchen comfortable and less humid.
It also reduces cooking odors and soiling moisture that create a frequent need for cleaning.
Turn the blower on before starting to cook.
Use a rear burner when browning or pan frying meat.
Open a window or inside door slightly.
Clean the filters and the wall behind the filters frequently.
e cooking in order to establish air currents upward
The blower should be turned on for a few minutes befor
before
through the hood. Thus when heat, smoke, moisture, grease and cooking odors are produced, they will
be carried outside instead of drifting into other rooms.
Use the low speeds for normal use and the higher speeds for strong odors or fumes.
Drafts across the range or cooktop will cause the escape of heat, smoke, moisture, grease and cooking
odors from the hood. Such drafts should be prevented in so far as possible.
The best job of ventilation in the kitchen is done where the only air currents are those created by the
blower itself.
For Gas Cooktops, a lower blower speed should be used if:
the gas flame is being distorted by the air movement.
the burner continually sparks (clicks)
the burner flame repeatedly blows out.
Care and cleaning
Care and cleaning
The efficiency of the range hood system depends on
the cleanliness of the intake and filters.
The frequency of cleaning depends on the amount
and type of cooking.
• Do not use the ventilating system without the
filters in place or with grease-laden filters or
surfaces.
To avoid risk of fire and explosion do not use
flammable liquids or solvents.
Always unplug or disconnect the appliance from the
power supply before servicing.
Be sure the entire hood (including the filters and light
bulbs) has cooled and grease has solidified before
attempting to clean any part of the appliance.
Lights

Cleaning
• Always use the mildest cleaner that will do the
job. Use clean, soft cloths, sponges or paper
towels.
• Rub stainless steel finishes in the direction of the
grain. Wipe area dry to avoid water marks.
• After cleaning, place all parts in their proper
positions before using.
The cleaners recommended below indicate a type
and do not constitute an endorsement. Use all
products according to package directions.
Hood Surface
Painted Surfaces: For general care, wipe the outside
of the hood with sudsy water or household cleaners
such as Fantastic or Formula 409, rinse well and dry
with a clean soft cloth to avoid water marks.
Stainless Steel Surfaces: Wipe and dry stainless
steel in the same direction as the grain. Avoid using
too much pressure, which may mar the surface. To
remove finger prints and give added shine, use
cleaners such as Stainless Steel Magic. Do not allow
any cleaning compounds to remain in contact with
stainless steel for extended periods.
Plastic surfaces: Wipe with a moist soapy sponge.
Rinse and dry.
Aluminum Mesh Filters: Clean filters in the dishwasher or by agitating in sudsy water. Ensure that
there is no soil trapped in the fine mesh. Dry the
filters before reinstalling them.
Anodized Aluminum surfaces: Top cap is not removable. Wash top and underside with hot sudsy water.
Rinse and wipe dry or apply Fantastic® or Formula
409® first to a clean sponge or paper towel and
wipe clean. DO NOT USE powdered cleansers or
steel wool pads.
