WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE: Never leave surface units
unattended at high settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite. Heat oils slowly on low or medium setting. Always turn the
Euro Hood “ON” when cooking at high heat or when cooking flaming foods.
Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate
on fan or filter. 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: SMOTHER FLAMES with a closefitting 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. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - You may be burned.

PLANNING THE INSTALLATION
VENTING REQUIREMENTS
Determine which venting method is best for your application. Ductwork can extend either through
the wall or the roof. The length of the ductwork and the number of elbows should be kept to a
minimum to provide efficient performance. The size of the ductwork should be uniform. Do not install
two elbows together. Use duct tape to seal all joints in the ductwork system. Use caulking to seal
exterior wall or floor opening around the cap. Flexible ductwork is not recommended. If it is used,
each foot of flexible ductwork used is equivalent to two feet of straight metal ductwork when
calculating the duct run length. Thus, a flexible elbow equals two standard elbows. Make sure there is
proper clearance within the wall or floor for exhaust duct before making cutouts. Do not cut a joist or
stud unless absolutely necessary. If a joist or stud must be cut, then a supporting frame must be
constructed.
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, USE ONLY METAL DUCTWORK.
RECOMMENDED ORDER OF INSTALLING COMPONENTS
(if installing Full Backguard System)
A. Vent Hood
B. Backguard System
C. Range
1. Locate and level range according to Range installation instructions.
2. Measure distance from floor to top of island trim on range adding 1/8” for backguard clearance.
3. Transfer this measurement to the wall. This will mark the bottom of your backguard.
4. From this line measure 28 1/8”up wall to mark top of 30”backguard. This is the minimum height
that the bottom of your vent hood can be installed.
5. Follow vent hood manufacturer’s installation instructions to install vent hood.
6. Follow backguard installation instructions to install backguard.
7. Connect gas and electric connections and slide range into position.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
A 120 volt, 60 Hz AC-only electrical supply is required on a separate 15 amp circuit, fused on both sides
of the line. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. The fuse must be sized per local
codes in accordance with the electrical rating of this unit as specified on the serial/rating plate located
inside the unit near the field wiring compartment.
THIS UNIT MUST BE CONNECTED WITH COPPER WIRE ONLY. Wire sizes must conform to the requirements of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 -latest edition, and all local codes and ordinances.
Wire size and connections must conform with the rating of the appliance. This appliance should be
connected directly to the fuse disconnect (or circuit breaker) through flexible, armored or non-metallic
sheathed copper cable. Allow some slack in the cable so the appliance can be moved if servicing is
ever necessary. A UL Listed, 1/2" conduit connector must be provided at each end of the power supply
cable (at the appliance and at the junction box). When making the electrical connection, cut a 1 1/4"
hole in the wall. A hole cut through wood must be sanded until smooth. A hole through metal must

This Euro Hood can be installed with (Fig. 05) or without (Fig. 06) an
optional telescopic chimney kit (model #ECD-2SS). In a ducted
application, this Euro Hood can be vented through the wall or ceiling. To
vent through a wall, a 900 elbow is used. When installing ductless with a
chimney kit, the Euro Hood vents out of grates on the sides of the
ductless chimney kit (model #ECND-2SS). This ductless installation also
requires a charcoal filter kit (model #ECF). When installing ductless
without the optional chimney kit, some ductwork must be installed to
divert the air out of the cabinet. This installation requires charcoal filter
kit (model #ECF). See page 10 for more details on all ductless installations.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
CALCULATE THE DUCT RUN LENGTH
The duct run should not exceed 35 feet for ducted six inch (6”) round ductwork. Calculate the length
of the ductwork by adding the equivalent feet in Fig. 08 for each piece of duct in the system. An
example is given in Fig. 09. For best results, use no more than three 900 elbows. Make sure that there
is a minimum of 24” of straight duct between elbows if more than one is used. Do not install two
elbows together.

WARNING:
Due to personal injury hazard because of the weight and size of the Euro Hood
canopy, two or more people are needed to move and safely install the Euro
Hood canopy. Failure to properly lift Euro Hood could result in damage to the
product or personal injury.
WALL PREPARATION
WARNING:
The screws provided for mounting this Euro Hood must be inserted into solid
wood. These must not be inserted into sheet rock.
1) Disconnect and move freestanding range from cabinet opening to provide easier access to
upper cabinet and rear wall. Put a thick, protective covering over cooktop, set-in range or
countertop to protect from damage or dirt.
2) Determine and clearly mark with a pencil the centerline on the wall where the Euro Hood will
be installed.
3) The Euro Hood attaches to the wall by mounting screws. For the 30" and 36" models, there are
two mounting screws. Install the screws into the wall. The screws should be inserted into the
wall until the screw head is flush with the wall.
4) The optional chimney kit is adjustable and designed to meet varying ceiling heights. The
chimney attaches to the wall by two additional brackets. The top bracket should be installed
about 1/8” away from the ceiling. The middle bracket must be installed at the bottom point of
the upper chimney sleeve. Determine the proper location for each bracket and install the
brackets on the wall. Attach the bottom of the lower chimney to the canopy using the screws
provided.
CAUTION:
Make sure that the screws and brackets are securely fastened to the wall.

4) The canopy attaches to the wall by two screws discussed earlier in the installation instructions.
The canopy hangs from these screws by brackets inside the Euro Hood shown in Fig. 10. Before
attempting to hang the canopy, you should rotate the adjustment screw marked V1 in Fig. 10
counter clockwise to extend the brackets from the canopy. Using a Phillips head screwdriver,
rotate this screw counter clockwise to extend the bracket.
5) Install the damper before hanging the Euro Hood. The damper attaches to the Euro Hood by
two small screws provided in the hardware package.
6) Hang the Euro Hood canopy from the screws. Due to the weight of the canopy, these screws
must be installed into solid material! Once the canopy is hung, rotate the screw marked V1 to
secure the Euro Hood to the wall.
NOTE: Make sure that the Euro Hood is securely attached to the wall! Failure to properly install
could result in injury or damage to property.
7) The brackets shown in Fig. 10 are also used to adjust the level of the canopy. Using a Phillips
screwdriver, rotate the screw V2 to adjust the level of the canopy.
8) Connect the Power Supply Cable to the Euro Hood. Attach the White lead of the power supply
to the White lead of the Euro Hood with a twist-on type wire connector. Attach the Black lead
of the power supply to the Black lead of the Euro Hood with a twist-on type wire connector.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
10) Turn the power supply on. Turn on blower and light. The Euro Hood controls are located on
the right-hand side under the canopy. If the Euro Hood does not operate, check that the
circuit breaker is not tripped or the house fuse blown. If the unit still does not operate,
disconnect the power supply and check that the wiring connections have been made
properly.
OPTIONAL DUCTLESS INSTALLATION KITS
The Euro Hood can be installed ductless in both chimney and
no chimney (under cabinet) installation. To install ductless in a
chimney installation, you must have the ductless chimney kit
(model #ECND-2SS Fig. 11) and the charcoal filter kit (model
#ECF Fig. 13). To install ductless in a no chimney installation
(under cabinet) (see Fig. 12), you must have the charcoal filter
kit (see Fig. 13).
The ductless chimney kit consists of an upper chimney (not
pictured), a lower chimney ( A) with two holes for the exhaust
air, a ductless diverter (B) which sits on the canopy of the hood
and diverts the air to the sides of the chimney, and two vent
grates (C) to cover the holes in the lower chimney (see Fig. 11).

FIG.11
The charcoal filter kit contains two charcoal filters which twist
onto either side of the blower inside the Euro Hood.
When installing ductless without the optional chimney kit,
some ductwork must be installed to divert the air either out of
the top of the cabinet or to the face of the soffit. The duct work
can not terminate inside the cabinet or into any dead air
space.
