Important Safety Instructions
General Safety Precautions
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury or death when using your range hood, follow basic
safety precautions, including the following:
WARNING
•
If you receive a damaged product, immediately contact your dealer or builder. Do not install or use a damaged
hood.
•
Make sure that the range hood has been properly installed and grounded by a qualified installer according to the
accompanying installation instructions. Have the installer show you the location of the fuse or junction box so that
you know where and how to turn the power off.
•
Do not install, repair or replace any part of the range hood unless specifically recommended in the literature
accompanying it. A qualified service technician should perform all other service.
•
To avoid the risk of electric shock, before servicing the range hood, switch power off at the fuse or junction box
and lock the electrical panel door to prevent power from being switched on accidentally. When the electrical panel
cannot be locked, securely fasten a prominent warning device, such as a tag, to the service panel.
•
To avoid the risk of electric shock, before cleaning the range hood, turn off the main power switch.
•
Use the range hood only for its intended purpose as outlined in this manual. DO NOT use this range hood to vent
hazardous or explosive materials or vapors. If you have questions, contact the manufacturer.
•
Do not tamper with the controls.
•
Never allow the filters to become blocked or clogged. Do not allow foreign objects, such as cigarettes or napkins, to
be sucked into the hood.
•
If the cooktop and range hood are near a window, use an appropriate window treatment. Avoid long drapes or other
window coverings that could blow over the cooktop and hood, resulting in a fire hazard.
•
Always run the fan(s) whenever the cooktop is operating.
•
Do not leave children alone or unattended in the area where the cooktop and range hood are in use. Never allow
children to sit or stand on an appliance. Do not let children play with a range, cooktop or range hood. Do not store
items of interest to children above or around the cooktop, range or range hood.
•
The minimum vertical distance between the cooktop surface and the exterior part of the hood must be no less than
25” (635 mm) for EH and MH series models and 30” (762 mm) for EHR series models. The vertical distance may be
longer for the range or cooktop being used. Consult the range or cooktop installation instructions for the minimum
vertical distance from the appliance being used.
•
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 hood ON when cooking at high heat or when flambéing 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:
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 dish clothes or towels - a violent steam explosion may result.
d. Use a fire extinguisher ONLY if:
◊
You have 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.

E MAIN POWER SWITCH - The main power
switch allows you to turn off power to the hood for
safety during maintenance. NOTE: When power is
turned on, or after power is restored after a power
failure, the control panel lights with flash for a few
seconds as the control panel circuit starts up.
A HOOD - The hood directs heat and smoke into
the fan located inside the unit. The fan forces heat
and smoke into the duct system which vents to the
outside. The filter and the lights are located on the
bottom of the hood.
B CONTROL PANEL - Use the keys on the control
panel to control your hood’s various features.
C FILTER - Prevents grease and grime from getting into the fan(s). The number of filters depends
on the model. See the table below.

Operating Instructions
AUTO-ON Safety Feature
WARNING
To protect the electronic speed control from heat
damage, the fan system automatically turns on
when the temperature on the control board goes
above 140°F (60°C) and the main power switch is
on. The fan speed increases with the temperature.
To temporarily turn off the auto-on feature:
Never operate the range hood without the filter(s) in
place. Also, do not operate the hood with grimy or
grease-laden filters. Personal injury, fire or damage to the
range hood could result.
Main Power Switch
The main power switch must be on to operate any
of the hood features. See page 3 for location.
• Touch and release the FAN key until the fan turns
off.
Operation
• If the temperature under the hood remains above
140°F (60°C), the fan will turn on again to protect
the electronic speed control.
Turning on the Fan
The fan will turn off automatically when the temperature drops below 130°F (54°C).
The fan has four speed settings. The speed is indicated by the number of lights glowing on the fan
speed indicator A .
Turning on the Lights
• Touch the LIGHTS key C to turn the lights on the
high setting.
• Touch the LIGHTS key a second time to set the
lights to low.
• Touch the LIGHTS key a third time to turn the
lights off.

E
Clean Filter Reminder Light
After 50 hours of fan operation, the CLEAN FILTER
light E will come on to remind you to clean the
filter(s). After coming on, the clean filter timer will
reset the next time the fan is turned off.
• Touch the FAN key B to turn on the fan.
• To increase the speed, touch and release the FAN
key until the fan is at the desired setting.
• To turn off the fan, touch and release the FAN key
until the fan turns off. As you touch and release the
FAN key, the fan speed increases, then goes from
high to off.
Important Operating Tips
• Always use the fan when using the cooking.
• Turn the fan on a few minutes before starting to
cook to establish an airflow pattern in the room.
• Adjust the fan speed according to the volume and
weight of the food you are cooking.
OFF
LOW
MEDIUM
• Shut nearby windows and doors, turn off ceiling
fans and close nearby heating and air conditioning
outlets to reduce air currents around the hood.
HIGH
Fan Speed Indicator
• Place your largest pots and pans on the back burners when possible.
• To decrease the speed, touch and release the FAN
key until the fan turns off. Then touch and release
the FAN key until the fan is at the desired speed.
• In the interest of safety, heat oils and fats slowly.
Energy Saving Tips
Timed Feature
Your hood is equipped with a timer to automatically
turn off the fan and/or lights after ten minutes. To
set the timer:
• Do not operate the fan at a speed higher than
necessary to remove heat and smoke. Running at
too high a speed will draw in air from outside the
house, increasing heating and cooling costs.
• Set the fan to the desired speed and/or lights to
the desired setting.
• Keep the filter system and hood surfaces free of
grease and grime to improve efficiency.
• Touch the TIMED key D (the key will light). The
fan and/or the lights will turn off after about ten
minutes.
• Turn the fan off as soon as all smoke and odors
have been cleared.
• Select cookware of the proper size, material and
construction for the cooking task. Always use lids
on cookware to retain heat and moisture.
• To turn off the timer, touch the TIMED key again.
The light on the TIMED key will go out to indicate
the timer is off.
• Minimize the amount of liquid used to cook food.
