MOUNT HEIGHTS
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
Minimum mount height between range top to
hood bottom should be no less than 24".
WARNING
Maximum mount height should be no higher
than 32".
The installation in this manual is intended for qualified installers, service technicians or persons
with similar qualified background. DO NOT attempt to install this appliance yourself. Injury could
result from installing the unit due to lack of appropriate electrical and technical background.
It is important to install the hood at the
proper mounting height. Hoods mounted too
low could result in heat damage and fire hazard; while hoods mounted too high will be
hard to reach and will loose its performance
and efficiency.
Installation
7-5/8"
Min 24"-Max 32"
All electrical wiring must be properly installed, insulated and grounded. Overly accumulated
grease in old duct work should be cleaned out or duct work should be replaced if necessary to
avoid the possibility of a grease fire. Check all joints on duct work to insure proper connection
and all joints should be properly taped.
96"
If available, also refer range manufacturer's
height clearance requirements and recommended hood mounting height above range.
Operations
36"
Read all instructions in this manual before operating the appliance. Save these instructions for
future reference.
Always leave safety grills and filters in place. Without these components, operating blowers
could catch on to hair, fingers and loose clothing.
NEVER dispose cigarette ashes, ignitable substances, or any foreign objects into blowers.
NEVER leave cooking unattended. When frying, oil in the pan can easily overheat and catch fire.
The risk of self combustion is higher when the oil has been used several times.
Cleaning
DUCTING
A minimum of 6" round or 3-1/4” x 10"rectangular
duct must be used to maintain maximum air flow
efficiency.
The saturation of greasy residue in the blower and filters may cause increased inflammability.
Keep unit clean and free of grease and residue build-up at all times to prevent possible fires.
Always use rigid type metal ducts only.
Flexible ducts could restrict air flow by up to 50%.
Filters must be cleaned periodically and free from accumulation of cooking residue (see cleaning instructions inside). Old and worn filters must be replaced immediately. Do not operate blowers when filters are removed. Never disassemble parts to clean without proper instructions.
Disassembly is recommended to be performed by qualified personnel only. Call our service center for removal instructions.
Also use calculation (on right) to compute total
available duct run when using elbows, transitions
and caps.
The manufacturer declines all responsibility in the event of failure to observe the instructions given here for installation, maintenance and suitable use of the product. The manufacturer further declines all responsibility for injury due to negligence and the warranty of the
unit automatically expires due to improper maintenance.
* Please check for latest specification revisions before any custom work or cutouts.
Minimum Duct Size:
Round:
6" minimum
Rectangular:
3-1/4” x 10”
Duct Run Calculation:
ALWAYS, when possible, reduce the number or
transitions and turns. If long duct run is required,
increase duct size from 6" to 7 or 8". If a reducer
is used, install a long reducer instead of a pancake
reducer. Reduce duct size as far away from opening as possible.
If turns or transitions are required:
Install as far away from opening and as far
apart, between 2, as possible.
