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.

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.


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.


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.

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 operated 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.

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.

Coverage & exceptions












Min 24"-Max 32"


Minimum mount height between range top to hood bottom should be no less than 24".

Maximum mount height should be no higher than 32".

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.

If available, also refer range manufacturer's height clearance requirements and recommended hood mounting height above range.


*Minimum clearance of 24”hood above range height.

** Maximum clearance 32" hood above range height.


A minimum of 5" round or 3-1/4” x 10"rectangular duct must be used to maintain maximum air flow efficiency.

Always use rigid type metal ducts only.

Flexible ducts could restrict air flow by up to 50%.

Also use calculation (on right) to compute total available duct run when using elbows, transitions and caps.

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.

Minimum Duct Size:


5" minimum


Requires an adaptor. Readily available at most hardware stores.

Ductless conversion is intended for applications where an exhaust duct work is not possible to be installed. When converted, the hood functions as a "purifying" hood rather than an exhaust hood.

Fumes and exhaust from cooking is drawn and filtered by a set of optional Carbon Filters. The air is then purified and re-circulated back within the home.

We recommend to ALWAYS exhaust air outside of the home by employing existing or installing new duct work, if possible. The hood is most effective and efficient as an Exhaust unit. Only when the exhaust option is not possible should you recourse to converting the hood into a "purifying"unit.

When converted to be a "purifying" unit, a set of Carbon Filters are required on top of its standard

Metal Filter set. Order according to its Part number below. The standard Metal Filters are intended to capture residue from cooking and the optional Carbon Filters help to purify fumes exhausted from cooking for re-circulation.

Carbon Filters (Required)

1. Purchase ductless Charcoal Filters as follow:

Hood Model: Part No. Filters in pkg.

ZPY-E30 (B, W, S) ZOF-CO22

ZPY-E36 (B, W, S) ZOF-CO23



2. Remove metal filters on hood.

3. Install attachment bracket into metal filter.

4. Clip carbon filter onto bracket.

5. Re-install metal filters.

6. Carbon Filters must be replaced after every 120 hours of use (or approximately every 2 to 3 months based on the average of 1-2hrs. of daily cooking time).

Surface Maintenance:

Clean periodically with hot soapy water and clean cotton cloth. Do not use corrosive or abrasive detergent (e.g. comet powder scrub, EZ-Off oven cleaner), or steel wool/scoring pads which will scratch and damage surface.

For heavier soil use liquid degreaser such as 'Formula 409' or 'Fantastic' brand cleaner.

After cleaning, you may use non abrasive stainless steel polish/ cleaners such as 3M or

ZEP, to polish and buff out the stainless luster and grain. Always scrub lightly, with clean cotton cloth, and with the grain.


Metal Filters

The Metal Filters fitted by the factory are intended to filter out residue and grease from cooking. It need not be replaced on a regular basis but are required to be kept clean.

Filters should be cleaned after every 30 hours of use.

Remove and clean by hand or in dishwasher. Spray 'Formula 409' or equivalent degreasing detergent and leave to soak if heavily soiled.

Dry filters and re-install before using hood.
