Planning the Installation
Backdraft Damper
We recommend that a backdraft damper be used in all Vent Hood installations. Cold
weather installations necessitate the use of a backdraft damper to minimize the flow of
cold air into the room. A non-metallic thermal break should also be installed to minimize conduction of outside temperatures through the ductwork. Locate the thermal
break as close as possible to where the ducting enters the heated portion of the
house.
Planning the Installation
Before beginning installation of the Island Vent Hood and Ventilator, PLAN OUT the
entire installation procedure beforehand, considering the following areas:
HOOD SIZE & LOCATION- (The hood should be as wide or wider than the cooking
appliance with the hood being centered on the appliance. Vertically, the bottom of
the hood should be between 30”-36” above the appliance cooking surface.)
DUCTING- (ducting transitions, air must flow to outside, use of Backdraft
damper...etc.)
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS- (120 Volts, 60 Hz, 15 AMP Service, Local
Codes...etc.)
ADEQUATE MOUNTING SURFACES- (To support the weight of the vent hoods,
location of ceiling studs, additional support for safe ceiling mounting...etc.)
HANDLING NOTE- This Hood has been inspected prior to shipping to be free of
defects. Due to the weight of the Island Vent Hood and Ventilator; and to prevent
scratching or denting the unit, we recommend the use of two installers to move,
place, and secure the Vent Hood to avoid personal injury or damage to the Hood.

Site Preparation and Installation Guidelines
Site Preparation
You will need to create a secure soffit structure to mount the Island Vent Hood to
the ceiling. We suggest using 1 1/2 “ by 3 1/2 “ wood cut to fit the installation as
shown in the following pages. The soffit mounting to the top of the Island Vent Hood
will be 10 7/8 “ in length for the DCS-IVH-48 and 10 3/4 “ for the DCS-IVH-36.
These dimensions allow room for a 1/2 drywall duct cover. Do not deviate from
these dimensions when choosing a duct cover as the soffit structure must align with
the mounting holes on the Island Vent Hood. You are limited to a maximum of 1/2
inch on all sides.
NOTE: You will need to determine which type of duct cover will be used before
installation and leave enough space around the soffit for a flush mount between the
duct cover material and the top of the Island Vent Hood.
CAUTION- When installing the ISLAND VENT HOOD directly to the ceiling, adequate
structural supports are CRITICAL to secure the unit. The Island Vent Hood is heavy,
weighing 128 LBS for the DCS-IVH 48 and 94 LBS for the DCS-IVH-36.
NOTE: The soffit height will vary according to the ceiling height.
GENERAL INSTALLATION GUIDELINES:
1) Determine the location for installation.
2) Determine the centerline of the installation.
3) If drywall is installed, cut away enough drywall to expose 2 ceiling joist (1 on
each side of the Hood center line)
4) Create your soffit structure according to ceiling height and attach soffit plates
for DCS-IVH-36 or soffit brackets for DCS-IVH-48 with screws to sides (see the
following pages for soffits and construction).
5) Attach soffit structure to existing ceiling joist.
6) Secure soffit with soffit braces according to model type (see diagrams page 710).
7) Attach Island Vent Hood to soffit with the six 2 inch mounting screws provided.
Finishing the Installation:
Once the Island Vent Hood has been mounted in place it will be necessary to install
the electrical service. All electrical work should be done by a qualified electrician and
must conform to all local standards. Refer to the wiring diagram on Pg. 13 for proper
hook-up and grounding.
NOTE: Black=live, White=neutral, Green=ground
Complete the installation by making ductwork connections, testing unit functions,
and installing & finishing drywall.

Ducting Information
General
When planning the path for ducting to the outside, keep in mind the following guidelines:
- Minimize use of elbows and transitions in ductwork as to maximize air flow to outside of building. An efficient airflow path contributes to the overall efficiency of the
Vent Hood.
- DCS recommends the use of “smooth wall” ducting, not flexible ductwork.
- Transitions are required from rectangular to round ducting
(see transitions as shown below)
- Duct tape may be used at ducting joints.
DCS-IVH-48 Requirements
- DCS recommends the use of 10” round ducting which provides 78.6 In.2 of surface area.
- See Duct Accessories below on for ratio to 10” transition.
- Alternate duct sizes in rectangular style may be used. If a rectangular duct style is
used, the duct must equal at least 78.6 In.2 for best results. (Example- 3 1/4”x 24”
duct = 78 In.2)
- Maintain consistent ducting square area as to avoid reduced air flow. [ie.- With a
IVH-48 Hood, connecting a 4”x13” (52 In. 2) to a 10”round (78.6 In. 2) is not recommended]
DCS-IVH-36 Requirements
- DCS recommends the use of 7” round ducting which provides 34.7 In.2 of surface
area.
- Alternate duct sizes in rectangular style may be used. If a rectangular duct style is
used, the duct must equal at least 34.7 In.2 for best results
Duct Accessories
- Wall Caps and Roof Caps must have free open area equal to duct size diameter.
- Note that a Sealed Back Draft Damper may reduce air delivery.
- Transition for right, left or rear air discharge also available.

Care And Use
Controls
We recommend you turn your hood on before you begin cooking to establish fresh
airflow. After you have finished cooking, let the blower run for a few minutes to
clear the air and help keep the kitchen fresh and clean.
Blower
The Blower is operated with 2 controls. The switch adjacent to the speed control
turns the blower on/off, while the speed control adjusts the blower speed. Turn the
speed knob clockwise to increase and counterclockwise to decrease the blower
speed.
Hood Lighting
A single switch controls the 4 halogen lights. The switch controls the brightness of
the lights with Hi/Off/Low. Use only 50w Max. Halogen Narrow Flood replacement
bulbs.
Caution! Halogen lamps are constructed of a glass bulb with a pressurized
internal filament tube that operates at high temperatures and could be discharged
into the fixture enclosure and/or surrounding environment, thereby creating a risk of
personal injury of fire. When replacing the bulb, let the bulb cool, and assure that
power to light has been turned off. Never allow a hot bulb to come into contact with
water.
Do Not Touch the Hood Light Bulbs when they are in use. They may be hot enough
to cause injury.

Care And Use
Cleaning the exterior Stainless Steel finish:
When cool the appliance can be cleaned with hot soapy water, rinsed, dried and
buffed to a shine with a soft, heavy pile cloth. Always try this first, as it is the mildest
form of cleaning.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Some brands of cleaners are harsher than others. Read their instructions.
Try on a small inconspicuous area first.
To avoid marring the surface always rub metal finishes in the direction of
the polish lines. The cleaner will be more effective when used in the direction of the polish lines.
Use only clean sponges, soft cloths, paper towels, plastic non-metal soap
pads for cleaning or scouring, use only soap pads with soap still in them, a
dry pad can scratch the surface.
Be sure to rinse thoroughly and to wipe dry to avoid water marks.
Filters and Grease Trays
Filters should be cleaned frequently in a detergent solution and are dishwasher
safe. Empty grease collection tray(s) regularly.
Unplug the Blower Motor before cleaning Ventilator.
Remove filters to access blower motor plug. Vacuum blower to clean.
Do not immerse in water.
Do not allow and excessive accumulation of grease.
Use a mild detergent when cleaning.
Do not use harsh abrasives, steel
wool pads, or abrasive cloths.
