INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE!
RETAIN INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION
When using electrical appliances, basic precautions
should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire,
electric shock and injury to person, including the following:
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK
AND INJURY TO PERSON, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Read all instructions before installing or using range hood.
Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If
you have questions, contact the manufacturer.
Before servicing or cleaning the unit, switch power off at service
panel and lock the service 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.
Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by qualified
person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and standards,
including fire-related construction.
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 manufacturer’s
guideline and safety standards such as those published by the
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the American
Society for Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers
(ASHRAE), and the local code authorities.
CAUTION: FOR GENERAL VENTILATING USE ONLY. DO NOT USE
TO EXHAUST HAZARDOUS OR EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS AND VAPORS.
6.
When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage electrical
wiring and other hidden utilities.
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE AND TO PROPERLY
EXHAUST AIR, BE SURE TO DUCT AIR OUTSIDE - DO NOT VENT
EXHAUST AIR INTO SPACES WITHIN WALLS OR CEILINGS OR INTO
ATTICS, CRAWL SPACES, OR GARAGES.
7.
8.
This unit must be grounded.
To avoid motor bearing damage and noisy and/or unbalanced
impellers, keep drywall spray, construction dust, etc. off power unit.
WARNING: 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
flambéing food (ie. Crepes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn
Beef Flambé).
c) Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be allowed
to accumulate on fan filter.
d) Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate for the
size of the surface element.
WARNING: 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
metal tray, then turn off 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 dishcloths or towels - a
violent steam explosion will result.
d) Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
I. You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you already
know how to operate it.
II. The fire is small and contained in the area where it started.
III. The fire department is being called.
IV. You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, USE ONLY METAL
DUCTWORK.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
SECTION 3
CAUTION: MAKE SURE POWER IS SWITCHED OFF AT SERVICE PANEL BEFORE
STARTING INSTALLATION.
Prepare the Hood for Installation
1.
SECTION 1
Preparing the Range Hood
1.
Vertical
Unpack hood from the carton and confirm that all pieces are present. In addition
to the range hood you should have:
2 - Aluminum Grease Filters
1 - 3-1/4"x 10" Damper
3 - Damper Mounting Screws
4 - #8 Mounting Screws
1 - Fluorescent Bulb
1 - Instruction/Safety Sheet
2.
Lay the hood flat on a table so the underside is facing you. Use a piece of cardboard
to avoid damaging the table or the hood.
3.
Remove the following items from the hood and place in a safe place until needed
(Figure 1):
Grease filters: Pull on tabs to remove.
Bottom cover: Remove the 4 screws holding it in place.
Lamp cover: Squeeze in the sides. The cover is held in place by tension against the
tabs on the hood.
Wire compartment cover: Remove the screw holding it in place.
Blower: Using a 3/8" nut driver or ratchet, remove the 4 nuts holding the blower in place.
Choose the type of ducting you will require. This model is equipped to vent either
Vertically or Horizontally through a 3-1/4" x 10" duct. It can be modified to be ductless
(re-circulates the air back into the kitchen) with the addition of 2 models CF-01
Charcoal Filters (not included) (Figure 3).
Ductless

Prepare the location for Hood Support
1.
2b.
Ductless - Lift up and remove the hood’s vent insert located behind the grill, exposing
the front air slots. Do not use a screwdriver or any other object that could scratch
the hood (Figure 4).
3.
Determine where the electrical service will enter the hood and remove the appropriate
electrical knockout by inserting a screw driver into the slot and rocking back and
forth until the knockout comes loose (Figure 4).
4.
Once the proper knockout(s) have been removed, either hold the hood up to the
installation location and mark the locations of the ducting, electrical, and mounting
holes or mark the locations by measurement.
5.
Cut appropriate holes for ducting connection and electrical connection in the
wall/cabinet.
6.
For 3-1/4" x 10" vertical or horizontal ducting, install the damper assembly to the
hood by sliding the tabbed section of the damper under the hood body and securing
with the two provided screws (Figure 5).
If the hood will be installed under cabinets that have a recessed bottom, it will be
necessary to install wood mounting strips (not included) so the hood will mount
properly (Figure 2).

7.
Install an approved wire connector to the electrical knockout of the hood and guide
the electrical cable through the hood, allowing at least 6" of wire for connections
and tighten.
Figure 2
2.
The thickness of the strips should be the same as the recess of the cabinet and
they should be approximately 2" wide.
3.
Install the strips using appropriate length wood screws (not included). Make sure
the strips line up to the keyhole slots of the range hood.
