Planning the Location
warning
Observe all governing codes and ordinances during
planning and installation. Contact your local building
department for further information.
■■ Carefully check the location where the hood is to be
installed. The hood should be placed for convenient
access. Make certain that electrical power can be
provided in the selected location.
■■ The hood model selected must be as wide as the
cooktop surface or wider.
■■ All contact surfaces between the hood and any cabinets or walls must be solid and at right angles.
■■ Install the range hood and cooking appliance(s) so
that they can be removed if service is required.
■■ Plan the installation so that all minimum dimensions
are met or exceeded. Dimensions shown above provide minimum clearances, unless otherwise noted.

Installation Specifications
Planning and Installing the Duct
Work
warning
• To prevent combustion by-products, smoke or odors
from entering the home and to improve efficiency,
tape all duct joints securely.
• Use only duct work deemed acceptable by state,
municipal and local codes.
• DO NOT install an additional in-line or external
blower to increase the length of the duct run. Even
small differences between blower air flow rates can
greatly reduce the air draw of the hood.
CAUTION
To reduce the risk of fire and to properly exhaust air, be
sure to duct air outside the house or building. Do not
vent exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings or
into attics, crawl spaces or garages.
■■ All duct work materials (including screws and duct
tape) must be purchased separately by the customer.
■■ When planning new duct work, always look for the
shortest, most direct route to the outside. Venting can
be done through the roof or directly through the back
wall to the outside as shown below.
Calculating the Maximum Duct Run Length
The maximum straight duct length for the hood is 50 feet.
To determine the actual maximum duct run, subtract the
equivalent length of each elbow, transition and cap from
50 feet.

the manufacturer or a qualified HVAC specialist.
Duct Work Design Tips
Wherever possible, reduce the number of transitions and
turns to as few sharp angles as possible. Two staggered
45° angles are better than one 90°.
Keep turns as far away from the hood exhaust as possible, and as much space between bends as possible.
For best performance, use round duct instead of rectangular, especially when elbows are required.
If multiple elbows are used, try to keep a minimum of 24
inches straight duct between them.
Avoid “S” or “back to back” use of adjacent elbows.
In regions where the weather gets extremely cold, use
thermal breaks, such as a short section of non-metallic
duct, to avoid indoor heat loss. Locate the break as close
as possible to the outside pass through point.
Do not use flexible metal duct.
DO NOT use duct work that is smaller in cross-sectional
area than the recommended types above.
■■ The hood exhaust connects to an 8-inch round duct.
You can increase the duct size over the duct run if
desired. To prevent a back draft, never decrease the
duct size over the run. If existing duct work is smaller
than 8 inches in diameter, remove it and replace it
with 8-inch duct work.
■■ Do not rely on tape alone to seal duct joints. Fasten
all connections with sheet metal screws and tape all
joints with certified silver tape or duct tape. Use sheet
metal screws as required to support the duct weight.
■■ To prevent back-drafts, a damper at the duct outlet
may also be required.
■■ Make sure duct work does not interfere with floor
joists or wall studs.
