danger
To avoid the possibility of explosion or fire, do not store
or use combustible, flammable or explosive vapors and
liquids (such as gasoline) inside or in the vicinity of

explosive materials in adjacent cabinets or areas.
Important Safety Instructions
General Safety Precautions
To reduce risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury or death when using your appliance, follow basic precautions,
including the following:
warning
warning
1. If you receive a damaged product, immediately
contact your dealer or builder. Do not install or use
a damaged hood.
13. 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.
2. 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.
14. The minimum vertical distance between the cooktop
surface and the exterior part of the hood must be
no less than the distance specified in the installation
instructions. The vertical distance may be more for
the range or cooktop being used. Consult the range
or cooktop installation instructions for the minimum
and maximum vertical distance from the appliance
being used.
3. 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.
4. 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.
15.TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS
IN THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
5. To avoid the risk of electric shock, before cleaning
the range hood, turn off the main power switch.
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.
6. 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.
b. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - you may be
burned.
c. DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dish cloths
or towels - a violent steam explosion may
result.
7. Do not tamper with the controls.
d. Use a fire extinguisher ONLY if:
8. 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.
9. Clean the filter(s) and all grease-laden surfaces
often to prevent grease fires and maintain
performance.
10. 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.
11. Always run the blower(s) whenever the cooktop is
operating.
12. Never leave the range or cooktop unattended when
a burner (or element) is in use. Boil-overs and
greasy spills may smoke and/or ignite.
•
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.

Operating Instructions
WARNING
Never operate the range hood without the filters 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.

Adjust the fan speed according to the volume and
weight of the food you are cooking.
•
Shut nearby windows and doors, turn off ceiling fans

grime to improve efficiency.
•
Turn the blower 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.
•
Minimize the amount of liquid used to cook food.
Push in on the switch to turn power on or off. The
control panel is lit when the main power switch is on.

after cleaning.
•
To prevent electric shock turn off the main power

A
B
Proper cleaning is necessary to ensure safe operation and
maintain hood performance and appearance. The frequency of cleaning should be adjusted according to the
type and amount of cooking. Best results will be achieved
by cleaning soiled components as soon as possible.
To Clean the Filters:
Hand wash the filters in hot water with a mild detergent
solution or place them in an automatic dishwasher. Dry
the filters completely before reinstalling them.
CLEANING STAINLESS STEEL SURFACES
To Reinstall the Filters:
Clean stainless steel surfaces with a mild solution of
detergent or dishwashing soap and warm water. Rinse and
dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
1. Insert the end of the filter opposite the release lever
into the slot right next to the light and main switch
panel. The release lever must be facing out.
You may also use Dacor Stainless Steel Cleaner on the
stainless steel surfaces. Use it according to the directions
on the package.
2. Pull on the release lever while sliding the bottom end
of the filter into the filter opening.
CLEANING THE GLASS
3. Release the lever.
Use a mild glass cleaner to remove finger prints on glass
surfaces. You can also clean glass surfaces with
Dacor Cook Top Cleaning Creme. Use it according to the
directions on the package.
CLEANING THE FILTERS
Clean the filters a minimum of every two months; clean
them sooner if grease begins to build up on them.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Maintenance
4. Line up the prongs on the new light with the holes
in the light socket. If there are more than two holes,
insert the prongs into the center two holes. You may
need a flashlight to see inside the opening.
WARNING

To prevent electric shock turn off the main power
switch before replacing the light bulb.
•
To avoid personal injury, make sure the cooktop
or range, the hood and the light are cool before
changing the light bulb.
LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT

maintenance operation. If the light does not work, before
replacing it, check to make sure that the main circuit
breaker (or fuse) and the main power switch on the hood
are on.
Replace the light bulb only with Dacor Part No. 101945,
